Frambozen is a classic Colorado holiday beer, one that has a fan club across the country and everyone who lives here should try at least once.
A brown ale that pours a deep red/brown color, Frambozen is deliciously flavored with juicy raspberries that make it seem like it should be poured into an ice tray with toothpicks and frozen as a dessert.
New Belgium Brewery's primary winter seasonal is 2 Below, which I've never been a big fan of. But I keep plenty of Frambozen in the fridge -- and maybe the freezer.
