A big light brown head settles into a small bisquity head and light lacing above a clear reddish amber colored beer.

Sweetened raspberries dominate that aroma with some added light malts and other citrus fruits.

The taste is a light roasted malt with a light infused raspberry taste with some tartness to it.

A light to medium body and a light dry aftertaste with some lingering berry hints.

I was really looking forward to this, I usually enjoy New Belgium beers and I love raspberries but this doesn't live up to the standard set by either.

12 oz. bottle served in a New Belgium globe glass.

A one finger head fades quickly leaving spotty lacing. Raspberry hued brown color.

Aroma of strong raspberry with brown sugar and bread.

Nice strong fresh raspberry flavor pairs with the malty sweet brown sugar, some chocolate and caramel notes. Medium roast and more bread. Tart fruit finish.

Mouthfeel is smooth and medium body.

Overall a unique and excellent fruit beer. Perfect for Christmas time or anytime.

This is definitely a brown ale with raspberries mixed in. I find it earthy and hearty and deeper, which reacts with the raspberries very well. Combines to make a hearty, yet somewhat refreshing ale, even though it's more robust than the standard weak fruit beers. This is actually bringing some good character. I like it and could definitely go for more than one since it's bringing true raspberry flavor and not a bunch of syrupy junk. A nice production from New Belgium.
