Brewed with fresh hand picked local raspberries, this is one of the best non-lambic style fruit beers I have ever sampled. A very refreshing brew,slightly tart and not at all sweet as other versions of this style can tend to be.
Ideal as an accomaniment to a desert at the end of a meal.

Lots o yeasty estery aroma and a good dose of the Raspberry.

Nice red color with a small pinkish head.

The beer is a little tart and has lots of fruit flavor. This is neither a tart lambic - a la Cantillon - or an artifically sweetened fruit beer. According to the brewer, there is no additional sugar, just what comes naturally from the raspberries. underneath it all, it seems like a very refreshing wheat beer.

Very enjoyable as a hot weather quencher. Would also go amazingly with some kind of chocolate desert.

Now here's a beer worth drinking by the flute-load! My girlfriend and I visited the Redoak yesterday on a whirlwind trip through Sydney, and loved the place. We spent close to 4 hours having a late lunch.
The Framboise came in a bottle, and was poured into a long stemmed champagne like flute. The first suprise was the colour, a brilliant soft pink, with a dense slightly pinkish head. The aroma was clearly and powerfully of fresh raspberries, no malt was detectable. It tasted like pure raspberry heaven! Raspberry, almonds, sweet malt, a slight tang of yeast, vanilla, yummo! Finished with a long sweet fruit end. Possibly the best Framboise we've ever tasted!
