    French Beer Club

    I can only attest to having tried a few of these and they were quite good. I'm a little disappointed not to see any of the fruit laced beers from France that I've had. There was one with raspberries in it that was an absolute pleasure to consume.

      Corporation had a raspberry beer out a few years ago.

      It was, IMHO, surprising bad.  Taught me to just stick with Boston Lager.

        surprised by Sam Adams from time to time. And I have to give them credit for taking some risks. Sitting on your laurels is no way to get ahead. Sure, keep and nuture the classics, but don't forget to try new things now and again.

        fruit beers are very different from the Belgian lambic beers (not the only Belgian fruit beers, but the best, imo). It has more to do with the fermentation process of the beer itself (with or without fruit) than with what kind of fruit is added when. If that makes sense.

        Having said that, about ten years ago I really liked Pete's Wicked Winter, but it's been a long time since I tried it and don't know how I'd feel about it now.
