I bottled this framboise attempt tonight. FG - 1.006, so about 7.7%.

It’s really clear and a lovely red colour, much like the raspberryade. Medium sweet/dry, but I don’t think it’s wheaty or hoppy enough, and the body is too light, quite like an alcopop. Tastes quite boozy too.

I got 11x 330ml bottles, primed with about 3g sugar each.

I’ll see how it is in a couple of weeks.

I tried a bottle of this framboise effort last night and you know what....

It’s actually really nice!

Super pleased with how it has turned out. Tasted like I think it’s meant too. Wheaty and hoppy and fruity. Could maybe be a bit more tart, but it is really tasty. The priming has done wonders to to it compared to what it was like at bottling time.

The head didn’t last all that long but...hey ho
