I’m big fan of fruit beer and not a huge fan of New Belgium but this brew tastes awesome. The raspberries are present yet so is the brown ale and both compliment each other well. Smacky (71) - San Clemente, California, USA - JUN 23, 2003
color was beautiful, a crimson colored nectar that I
could smell even at full arm's length. The nose was of
rich, jammy berries with a perfect background of
bready malt. The flavors danced in my mouth: a rich
yet perfectly acidic effervescence accompanied flavors
of sweet, ripe berries and a perfectly balanced
caramel-malt richness. Icredible. sbbrown (1) - , California, USA - DEC 8, 2008 does not count
Great aroma, fresh raspberries come through after even the slightest waft. Good red color when poured in glass. On first sip the fresh raspberries strike the palate, and after a couple seconds the fruit flavor subsides and goes into a pleasant brown ale flavor. These two tastes match each other very well with each sip; it tastes like 2 separate beers, and yet the flavors complement each other at every turn. A great winter beer, recommended! pubscout (30) - Perth Amboy, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2003
You'd be hard-pressed to find something wrong with this magnificent brew.
Similarly, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better beer with which to pass a winter's eve. Gets better as it warms! NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 26, 2012
This is one of the best fruit beers I have ever had. So complex and so delicious! Pours a dark brown with a small head. Lots of raspberry on the nose and a nice malty character too. Fresh raspberries on the palate with a nice malty character shining through in the finish. Such a good brew. Even if you don’t like fruit beer typically, this one is absolutely worth a try.
