Aaron, how clear did yours get...is it meant to be cloudy/hazy? I did forgot to add my whirlfloc but read that in time beers clear without such additives but mine has not cleared much at all...even before I added the fruit.

I could cold crash it or add gelatin but would rather not....for various reasons....

I started opening my Raspberry Belgian Ale about a week ago....tastes delicious. Went down well with Thanksgiving dinner. Had many compliments such as "best fruit beer ever had". It's got a nice real (not fake extract) raspberry flavour initially which subsides to leave a dry tartish beery/belgian yeasty flavoured taste. Here is a pic of it...from the side you see the red hue colour from the raspberries. Has a thin head, we didnt over carb this beer to try and let the delicate flavours shine...

Ayup!

Thinking about brewing this for my wife. The recipe lists basically an 8 day fermentation, which seems short. I only ever do 5 gallon batches. Is the 8 days because you're pitching the same amount of yeast, but for a 3 gallon batch? I guess I'm just more used to 3 weeks. Thanks!

I know this is an old thread but what the heck. The reason I had an 8.5% abv was that I forgot to dilute the wort before pitching the yeast. In other words, I forgot to take a specific gravity reading post-boil and pre-fermentation. Whoops! Hopefully that can help out someone else.
