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.

Dark murky purple with only ring of bubbles for head. Huge sour and tart raspberry aroma and flavor. Flavor almost all sweet-tart like flavor, makes your mouth pucker. Medium palate but sweetness causes it to be heavy on the stomach.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Oooooooooooooooooooooh. Cloudy purple-red, no head. Pretty stuff. Beatific raspberry nose, tart and sharp, can almost smell the seeds. Flavor has some sweetness at first, then a huge kick of raspberries, tart and fruity. Just great stuff, love how it starts with mild sweetness then comes in with the huge genuine tartness.

Dark purple with a pink head, so neat looking. Aroma is a pure blast of raspberries and sourness. The flavor is surprisingly very salty with a ton of raspberry and tart fruityness. Some sweetness, acidity and sourness in there as well. Medium body with very lively carbonation.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2005
Bottle: Opaque muddy brown with ruby & purple highlights and a large pink head. Aroma: This is like sticking your head in a bucket of fresh picked raspberries with just a slight bit of tart scent. Taste is ripe raspberries, definitely not any artificial flavoring, raspberry seeds, very sweet, and just slightly tart and acidic. Medium bodied, but light on the palate with lively champagne-like carbonation. What a great beer to sip for desert.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Bottle from brad. Pours a deep red color with a fizzy white head. Nose is sweet cherries and cranberries. Taste is cranberries, very tart, stings the palate alot and is very fizzy. Also some raspberries and sourness.

hopdog (10807) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2005
My 14th fruit beer in under 2 weeks (and my last non-rated one in my cellar). Poured a deep ruby red and pinkish color with an averaged sized pinkish head. Very nice aroma of fat and juicy raspberries. Tastes of raspberries. Semi sweet and semi tart. Good thing I love raspberries - by far one of my favorit fruit beers.

Pours red with a very small head that does not last long. Smell is of rasberries. Tste is of over the top rasberries. Very tart finish.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2005
What a beautiful beer. Deep ruby/purple with a light pink head. Aroma of...raspberry preserves, go figure. Taste is thick and rich. Tart raspberries, raspberry preserves, sugar cookie, pie crust and even some tiniest tinges of vanilla, spice, and nut. Carbonation is simply perfect, and the palate overall great; creamy, thick, and a little froth. Watch out, sweetness and richness with get to you after awhile.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours a deep ruby red. Very pretty pour, but the layer of pink-tinged tan head is kind of skimpy. I wouldn’t complain, but it seems like this is generally expected to be a highly carbonated style. (Also, every thing else was so good, I felt like I had to complain about something.) The aroma is stunningly fragrant. Raspberries, vanilla, fruity sourness, spice, muskiness, and a bit of lightly toasted wheat. Mmmm. So delicious. An overwhelming slap of flavor, like stepping out of a building into a hurricane. Which comes first here, the incredibly tart, mouth puckering sourness, or the rush of sweet raspberry jam? I sure can’t tell, but my mouth is digging the chaos. This is wonderful beer. Bravo to the cheeky brewers of New Glarus! They have gone after a challenging, almost Baroque style here, and the results are remarkable. One small caveat. I think serving it cool, and not "very cold" as the label suggests, will shows off the sourness of this beer to it’s best advantage. Thanks Hezron for the bottle!

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2006 Wow! and by wow I mean WOW! We cracked this one at a tasting at Mike’s (tiadiaguy) last weekend and this was the most memorable beer of the weekend. It poured with the consistincy of a fruit smoothie. The aroma and flavor was like a tangy, rasberry sorbet. I’m definately seeking out more of this.
