Cask at the RAF 2003: Clear dark pink. . . chocolately raspberries. Pretty good flavour for a juice, or kool-aid, but not a good flavour for beer. . . something bad happened with this one. JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Sorry Todd, I have to admit that I, too, didn't like the Framboise. Vinegar thinned out with sugar water and blended with raspberry gummi worms. jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Unfortunate from a good brewery. I guess it didn't come out as planned. Stale nose with a fake fruity rubbery taste. Some raspberries I think in there. npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Brite, Kool-Aid red. Ridiculously sweet with a raspberry candy flavor.spacerspacerspacerspacer DaSilky1 (2608) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2003 cask (RAF): red tinted transparent liquid with a halo of cask-created ugly big bubbles...vinegar, rancid raspberry, and floral alcohol in the nose...soapy thick mouthfeel with raspberry notes, urine, soap, and raspberry soaked cardboard.

Garnet red in color. Raspberries and sweet malt in aroma. Alcohol evident with frutiness that takes center stage. Slightly thin and is in need of perhaps more malt to balance. Overall enjoyable to drink. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2003
On tap RAF: Sweet candy-like raspberry aroma erupts from the glowing red body. Body is smooth and well balanced with a semi-bitter finish. Nice beer characteristics for a fruit beer.
