Night of the Barrels @EBF. Dark purple samples with pink, minimal head. Loads of raspberries in the nose and more on the palate. Funk and tartness is subdued by the massive raspberry character. Wow.

Turbid ass pink n purple drank, this one looks more like a fruit smoothie than it does any standard idea of what the public thinks of as a beer appearance (BMC -AAL yellow beers). So thick, like when Milhouse and Bart go crazy broadway style drinking uncut squishees.

Aroma is raspberry in the biggest quotient I may have ever smelled in a beer. Manages to double up the amount of fruit without changing the sweetness or sourness levels.

Quite the treat, hopefully they'll make it again someday, haven't seen it in several years.

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
