ChainGangGuy (4362) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Appearance: Graciously served by the staff at The Fred a dark mahogany-hued body, reddish at the edges, and capped by a small, beige head.

Smell: A fruity, reasonably tart nose, as one would expect, smelling of ripe raspberries, again, as one would expect. Little hints underneath the berries of middling, modest malts and sweet-scented golden syrup.

Taste: A big sweetish sip of just-juiced raspberries and, while tart, itís not overly tart. In fact, letís just call the entire thing ígentlyí tart. Scaffolding of dark bready malts, though relatively light in flavor. The purported 8.5% ABV is nowhere to be seen. Drying, soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: Itís good and I cheerfully downed my goblet, but itís no New Glarus Raspberry Tart. Then again, what is?

kbutler1 (1350) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Draft. Pours a clear, dark reddish color with a light pink head. The raspberry note dominates the aroma in this beer as I expected and wanted. Sweet raspberry flavors with a touch of tartness. Pretty straght forward beer but overall I find myself comparing it to other raspberry beers like Respberry Tart from New Glarus and compared to that, Ooh La La falls a little flat.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2011
(Draught) Pours a purple body with a violet head. Aroma of raspberry, blackberry, and some roasted grain. Flavor of raspberry, blueberry, currants, light cocoa, and dough.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Tap at Maxís in Baltimore. Thanks Tom for sharing! Poured a much deeper than expected clear cola ruby with a temporary pinkish fizz head. Nose is very similar to New Glarus Raspberry Tart: seedy raspberry, true and sweet, with blackberry. Pretty crazy. Taste is awesomely tart and spicier with raspberry jam and just a hint of sourness. Not quite seedy or as intense as the New Glarus equivalent but very rich stuff. Delicious.

argo0 (11450) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Draft. Off-white head tinged with pink, cola-dark brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, raspberry, some strawberry, light spicy. Taste is moderately sweet, raspberry, some blueberry, strawberry. Light-medium body, light stickiness, low carbonation, alcohol well contained.

nickd717 (3480) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft at Falling Rock. Pours purple like grape juice with some purplish bubbles on top. Big raspberry aroma, more tart than sweet, but not terribly complex. Raspberry juice dominates the flavor - itís a lot like a stronger Lindemanís Framboise. Medium-bodied with mild acidity and medium-high carbonation. Overall, itís fine but I canít say I love it.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Tap at el Bait Shop. A deep brown brew with a little garnet at the edges. A thin khaki head. The nose is rich and fruity with the raspberries. There is a persistent candy and malt note. The taste is like raspberries mixed with green tea. There is also some cola. This is vineous throughout.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear ruby with small light pink head. Rasberry aroma and light malts. Thin mouthfeel with sour rasberry dominating the flavor and a nice tart finish. A good fruit beer from New Belgium.
