Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 02-10-2002

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 biére 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.

The unusual pink color of this brew is the first thing to catch the senses. There is a light hop and fruity aroma with a refreshing estery fruit flavor to the beer. Not a bad summer slinger. (192 characters)

Here's an unusual beer. 500lbs of raspberries were used to produce this fruit lambic-like beer. Has a murky light strawberry colour to it with a thin pink lace -- like a wine cooler. Clean nose, soft-raspberry aroma and a touch of fruity candy. Strong wheat flavour, crisp, tart and puckering with huge raspberry flavours and a limey / salty citrus bite.

A bit one-dimensional (a fruit overload on the senses), but extremely interesting. Kudos to the brewer for making something so outrageous. (496 characters)
