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.

Another novelty beer from the 2003 Vermont Brewers Festival.

And this *is* a novel beer. First of all, it's raspberry colored, almost pink, with a pink head. The nose was pure unadulterated raspberry with a very pleasant fruity aroma. Flavor was also rather good, with some nice tart raspberry flavors backed up with a bit of malt, but the finish was rather tannic, bordering on unpleasant. It's not all that drinkable---a small sample was nice, but didn't really leave you wanting more. Fun, and interesting, but not really a beer I'd recommend

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.

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.
