Our Frambozen is inspired by the centuries old Belgian tradition of brewing beer with raspberries. This high gravity brew undergoes a slow second fermentation with tons of fresh, whole Fraser Valley raspberries. The result is a ruby-red fruit beer with a intense raspberry flavour, a nice tart finish and a luscious pink head.

Draught at the brewpub, as Raspberry Belgian Triple, at 9.5% ABV
Ruby red color, creamy head. Aroma of raspberries. Good body strength; flavor of raspberry syrup, with malt backbone and too much bitterness for this beer; moderate sweetness, and clear alcohol perception. Not the worst fruit beer around, a bit artificial and boozy.

harrisoni (19159) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2006
On tap at Steamworks, Vancouver. Clear red/brown colour with thin pinky white head. Raspberry aroma. Very raspberry fruit. Hint of sourness. Raspberry fruit in mouth leads to very moderate sourness and then if falls away towards the end. Rapsberry fruit syrup continues throughout. Bit over carbonated. Lacks a bit of malt structure.

mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours reddish pink with a pink head. Aroma of raspberries and some tartness. Flavour is pretty much the same, with the tartness on the finish. Quite decent.

Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2005
Bright red colour. Slightly candyish raspberry aroma. Fruity, lively flavours, with a trace of alcohol for dryness. Tart, juicy finish. Not balanced, but it has good body and a very fresh raspberry character owing to the use of whole fruit.

Deep ruby color, small reddish head. Sweetish, slightly tart rasberry aroma. Medium-bodied. Dry flavor of rasberries and rasberry stones. Nice body, but not much going on in this brew. Clean.

Sammy (12600) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Pink coloured body with a thin white head. Real raspberry aromas. Initially tart and promissing, a lot of sugar and malt base behind it made this one go the other way. i wanted the tartness. Average mouthfeel, decent drinkability.

DuffMan (10596) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 22, 2010
GCBF 2010. Orangey-pink, lively head. Pungent, real-raspberry aroma. Fresh raspberry fruit flavour, sweet and a little syrupy, but balanced by a medicinal tartness.

JoeMcPhee (9515) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2004
Bright ruby red colour with a thin slightly pink head. Sright sweet raspberry aroma with the pronounced bitterness of raspberry seeds. Flavour shows lots of raspberry on the front with a burst of tart tannins in the middle before a short acidic finish. Very interesting, if somewhat thin body. Tasty brew, but not all that complex.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Nose of fresh raspberry, light belgian yeast, a touch of tartness, a hint winey. Pours reddish purple brown, nice off pinkish head. The flavor is full of fresh raspberry, light fresh tartness, a hint of belgian yeast base, and a light alcohol note in the finish. Nice fruit strong fruit beer. Good.
