COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The voluminous raspberry bouquet will greet you long before your lips touch your glass. Serve this Wisconsin framboise very cold in a champagne flute. Then hold your glass to a light and enjoy the jewel-like sparkle of a very special ale. Oregon proudly shares their harvest of mouth-watering berries, which we ferment spontaneously in large oak vats. Then we employ Wisconsin farmed wheat and year old Hallertau hops to round out this extravaganza of flavor.

From notes. From bottle share in October 2013 (courtesy of Mike Upson). Pours brownish with major red highlights and a half finger of tan foam. AROMA of earthy semi-tart raspberries, wheat malt, and a little bit of mustiness. FLAVOR of absolutely exquisite raspberries (nicely sweet, nicely tart)...not much else in the flavor department but very delicious. Semi-tart finish. The spritzy carbonation adds to the whole experience. Glad to finally try this...not particularly complex but wonderfully executed and delicious. (1167, 898)

Smells like intense raspberries. Perfect medium soda like carbonation. Taste is both sweet and tart raspberries. Mild funk notes occasionally, mostly at the beginning of the bottle (maybe wild yeasts at the top?). Notes of bread and pie crust on the finish. Aftertaste is about 10 seconds and the same.

bartlebier (1631) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog, CHI tasting - 75cl bottle courtesy of CHI tasting crew, thx). Pours gorgeously deep pink, little bubbly soap head. Earthy-fruity aroma of defrosted, slowly thawing raspberries, a delicate tartness that is all berry and no sour beer. Watery palate, the dried? hops are not really creating enough of a dry mouthfeel for me here. Some nice vanilla from the cask. An excellent showcasing of gorgeously fresh and fleshy raspberries in a very fruity and refreshing drink, but far from an artwork in terms of sour beer brewing/blending - this lacks a Framboise lambiek’s complexity and depth. - Have to go with diabel’s older but still valid Belgocentric evaluation here.

Bottle pour. Pours a deep, deep ruby red with a pink laced healthy head. The moment you open this bottle the raspberry scent wafts across. The taste lives up to the nose here - somehow the tartness does not overpower the sweetness here or vice versa. I get no sour feel here - this is a pure dessert beer. Somehow the mouthfeel and lasting taste here give the sense that you have been drinking a squeezed/pressed bagful of freshly picked raspberries.

Nephilium (1344) - Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Strong raspberry aroma, with a hint of oak. Pours a clear dark red, with a large off white head. Much sweeter then most of the framboise I enjoy, but this does have a nice raspberry flavor, with a quick tart finish. This may work well as a way to transition people off of Lindeman’s and onto the sour framboises.

baraciisch (1798) - USA - JUL 24, 2014
Brownish magenta in color... Aroma of fresh raspberry jam, syrup... Flavor is intensely sweet raspberry jam up front, funk and blue cheese notes come through on the palate, fairly tart finish... Oak, vanilla... Really nice, but definitely not for everyone ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dresden (824) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 23, 2014
Bit of a reddish brown color. Big beautiful raspberry aroma, some slightly funky smell here too that I didn’t really get from the other fruit beers by then. Taste is a fantastic raspberry jam, some sour, but actually less tart than I had expected. I could drink this every day.

I got this in Wisconsin. Pours reddish with off white head. Taste sweet, rasberry, fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Rich sweet raspberry, sweet malts, faint acidity, and a long fruity rich finish. Damn good.

DrewFace (760) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a fairly murky dark amber color with tan head. Huge fruity nose, tons of raspberry aroma, juicy, framboise like sweetness, tart aroma. Flavor is intense raspberry juice, not artificial, refreshing tartness in the back and more raspberry lingers in the finish. A lot of raspberry packed into this.
