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.

Wonderful big raspberry smell and taste. Has a good balance of sweet and tart. A great summer beer.

Bottled. Cheers to Kevin42 for this Wisconsin Gem. Drank to celebrate my birthday and another excuse to wet the baby’s head. The aroma is like the jammiest raspberry jam ever made - putting it to the nose you can almost taste it already. It pours a deep rich reddy plummy colour and there starts off a decent pinkish head. The taste is quite tart but never sour. Yet nor is it over-sweet, just exceptionally fruity and jammy. It almost feels like the little seeds off the raspberries are stuck between your teeth. An absolute top quality fruit beer and another beautifully easy drinking beer from New Glarus. Not quite as nice as the Belgian Red but excellent nonetheless.

Beauty in a bottle. Deep crimson red with a pinkish head. Aroma was super sized raspberries like raspberry jam. Flavour was domination by the raspberries but so carefully balanced by the malts. The bitterness and sweetness are tightly joined. This beer is so versatile, it could be used as a dessert beer, a summer beer, poured over ice cream or simply enjoyed in Mansland.

pours a bright red w/ a thick pink foam head smelled of sweet rassberryies, good carbonationg and a nice body in the palate. The flavor was of sweet and bitter rassberries w/ hints of light malt. Overall a very well done but not overly complex beer, raz is not my favorite flavor but this was still pretty good.

From the bottle this brew pours a deep red with a lavander tall fluffy head. The raspberry in this is by far the most amazing fruit aroma i’ve ever witnessed in a beer. Rich and sweet, like a dessert filling or a rich raspberry jelly. The tartness of the berries cuts through a lot of the sweetness and makes this very drinkable and it would be perfect alongside any dessert.

liquid sex from the midwest. first time anyone has ever used midwest and sex in the same sentence. The color is beautiful and the palate is even more so. Tart acidic and fruit forward this is a wonderful appertif.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Poured a purple color with a medium pink head. Aroma was purely sweet and tart raspberry. You have to like raspberry for this one and if you do it is amazing. Sweet raspberry flavor thick and mildly syrupy with a moderate length sweet finish. Great desert beer especially with a good vanillia bean ice cream.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Head is initially small, fizzy, pink, fully diminishing. Body is dark reddish purple. Aroma is raspberry. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Really nothing but raspberry in the aroma; while that’s nice, it just doesn’t resemble beer in any way...this is soda pop from start to finish. I’m afraid I need more than that to give high scores.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 Rich red color, with rose colored rocky head, which diminishes moderately quickly. Heavly carbonated, like champagne. Strong raspberry aroma that is a little overpowering, tartness provides a relief from the sweetness. Sweet and sour raspberry flavor. Heavily carbonated tickling mouthfeel.

Deep ruby color witha pink head and some of the best lacing I have ever seen from a beer. Fresh raspberry aroma, but possibly more like raspberry jam and a slight hint of wood. Sour raspberry taste, but not as much as as I would have expected from the intense aroma. Also got that hint of wood in there too. Lush feeling in the mouth. This was good but I liked the Belgian red better.
