Granville Island Brewing False Creek Raspberry Ale

GIB did a really great job taking “Fraser Valley Raspberries” and adding it to a nice clean-tasting ale to make a beer that tastes like a raspberry beer, eh.. (The kind you find in a second hand store).

It is really pink when you pour it, and still pink in the glass. The head and body are really full. The raspberry taste is obvious, but not so overwhelming. For my liking the flavor is not subtle enough, giving me the impression that it is a novelty beer that won’t be around for long…

In the meantime I would try this one out on a sunny day, cold, preferably in the early afternoon:)
