So a couple of friends came over on Friday who are always trying new drinks and introduced me to this this raspberry beer called FRAMBOISE. It is a beer from Belgium that comes in a wine bottle. (?)
I am NOT a beer drinker in the least and was hesitant to try it but when we popped it open, the aroma was heavenly!
The first taste with the tangy raspberry flavor was also a surprise as I was expecting it to taste like beer.
It did not.
I know it looks like a wine bottle, it looks like wine in color yet it had a nice carbonation and sweet smelling foam on top which gave it the beer effect. It kind of tasted like wine but you could taste a hint of lager and with the carbonation was again giving it the beer effect.
I kept asking - are you sure this is BEER??
I took a picture of the label to remind myself that is was, in fact, beer (and for my husband to see what he can get that I will actually DRINK).
Tastiest "beer" I've ever had and an added bonus (depending on who you are) it was higher in alcohol content than your typical beer.
Although I am not a frequent or heavy drinker, I could have polished off that whole bottle by myself without much effort. Do yourself a favor if you have a chance and try this beer, in a wine bottle, called Framboise.
You will not regret it!
Well, maybe - the next morning..
If you polish off the bottle with little effort..
