COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light, refreshing fruit beer fremented with over 500 pounds of real raspberries! At 6.2% ABV it is in the early reaches of the strong bire category! This ruby red, sour mashed and oak aged weiss beer is for everyone. Maybe some oak, cherry and vanilla come through? Try mixing it with our currently offered stout, on tap. It is real, it is right and it works. The freshest framboise on tap in town, no question!

Fred82 (2153) - Qubec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2010
On tap at Vermont brewpub. Sampler
Appearance : Shiny red.
Aroma : Great fresh and wild raspberries. Very fruity. Crisp.
Taste : Nice fruity and fresh raspberries. Light tartness.
Overall : Nothing really fancy here but this is very tasty. This is a very nice example of fruit beer. Not "over the top" in any way but really well made. The were not afraid to put a ton of raspberries in there. I find it a bit like the Framboyante from BdT but without the hops. This was a very nice summer beer (why is it a winter seasonal ?) and I think its slightly underrated here... Maybe its not always in such good shape.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy ruby red with a very small white head. Aroma is raspberry, wheat and lightly sour notes. Flavor of the same. Kinda reminds me of a raspberry weise.

j12601 (9790) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Growler shared at the Smoke from the Oak release. Pours a light clear red with a hint of a white head. Piles of raspberry and a slight bit of crisp acid. Body is thin and fruity, ends with a chewy light sour. Pretty tasty and easy drinking, but a little light.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAR 8, 2009
Draft at the brewpub - Poured a beautiful ruby red in color with a very small white head. Aroma is all raspberries and quite strong. Flavor matches pretty much and is fairly sweet. Not much here from a beer perspective, but I enjoyed anyway.

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2008
Deep red colour and crystal clear. Rich bright raspberry aroma. Bright and fruity smelling. Flavour is a bit strange and flat though. Sort of watery on the palate. A bit of lightly peppery heat, raspberry and a lot of ethanol on the back. Meh.
