New Belgium Frambozen

New Belgium Brewing is in Fort Collins, Colorado. "Frambozen" is Flemish for "raspberry" and this is a 6.5% ABV raspberry brown ale in the Belgian style. The beer pours dark brown and ruby, throwing off dark pink tones. There is a short head of nearly creamy light brown foam. The aroma is raspberry fruit, dark caramel, cherry tartness, and a light, dry oakiness.  The taste is like biting into a dark chocolate covered raspberry caramel, fruity and bittersweet. The finish is dry. Very nice and a great Christmas season beer.
