Something fitting for review #1700 I guess.

Wow, that is a liquid packed with raspberries. I mean, this thing isn't "pretty" or with good clarity, this is a purple and pink slushee/smoothee almost, so much fruit material in the glass, this looks like your recommended daily allowance in the fruit pyramid of days gone by. This is the thickest fruit beer I've ever seen. To some, its a flaw, to me, its a great sign of things to come. Aroma is plenty tart and delivers the raspberry.

Everything the regular version does, this one does better. More fruit, more sour it seems, without the increase in sweetness/sugary flavor. Its not exactly complex, but it delivers for what it is, an immense raspberry experience with a decent although not complex clean sour character.

Enjoyed at Beachwood BBQ for sourfest.

In the grand scheme of things, there are a lot of attempts at making framboise and raspberry beers that don't measure up. But there's also 3 examples that are must haves if raspberry is your cup of tea:

1. FFAC
2. Double Framboise de amorosa
3. NG Raspberry Tart
