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.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2006 Brownish-red color, with a pink head. Aroma is dominated by raspberries, but also has some spice. Taste starts out with sweet raspberries, but ends up a little tart and dry. Really good...how does NG make such great fruit beers?

Deep blood red, minimal head, sweet-tart raspberry aroma. Sickly sweet. Small spice at sides of mouth. Actual bite at the back of the throat as well- wierd.

Opaque rusty brown. Rocky brown-pink head w/ raspberry seed floating in the foam. Robust sweet & tart aroma of fresh raspberries. Syrupy feel. Complex sweet & tart flavour of fresh raspberries in cream & raspberry pie. Semi-sweet finish.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2007 (750 ml bottle) Pours a rose color with a medium-sized pink head that dissipates quickly. Nose of candy-like red raspberries. Good sourness, but not as tart as a lambic. Refreshing brew!

Poured beautiful red color with thin pink head...smelled like fresh raspberries, but the warmer it got I swear to god I smelled a fresh can of Spaghetti O’s...tasted quite sweet but it didn’t really seem tart enough for me...had a crisp clean finish with a pleasant raspberry aftertaste...

My favorite beer of all time. Head is thick but with fine bubbles. This is a berry bear, but with a perfect balance of sweet vs. tart. Even good berry beers seem to be a bit too sweet, but this is perfect. My only complaint is price and availability. Is seasonal and can sometimes be difficult to find even in Wisconsin.

IndianaRed (2472) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 12, 2004
UPDATED: APR 22, 2005 750mlBottle Pours a deep cloudy crimson with a thick pale pink head that is maintained in the slender flute. Aroma is like raspberry jam or pancake syrup. Almost too strong. Very sweet with a bit of woody oak. First impression is the tart, dry very bold ras flavor. A quite sharp astringent tang, as the flavor fades. The long term finish quickly dissipates with not much of a reminder of what just happened. The ABV is nearly imperceptable and the dry finish is clean with a hint of he oak barrels trying to hang on. As it warms a bit the acidity and the oak comes through more. Excellent, and even though it tastes so good, my impuls is to slug it down, I try my best to savor every sip....was that realy 750ccs?.. Thanks to MrFacto for the trade !

heemer77 (5101) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 11, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Very dark cloudy red. Has a small pink head. Aroma is almost overpowering with red raspberries. Makes me think of a rhubarb pie, as that is the closest taste I have had. I would describe it as being like fresh raspberries, but it is even more intense. The taste is slghtly sour with a touch of cinnamon spiciness behind the raspberrries. This is absolutely delicious. A little straightforward in it’s presentation, but subtlety is not needed here.

Pours a deep red, small to no head. Aroma and taste of fresh rasberries. A tartness that is improved by warming. An excellent beer. Very impressive.

Bottled. Dark red. Huge aroma of fresh raspberries, with a big salivary secretion as one result as well as tears of joy. Flavour is also wonderful, just pure, clean and fresh raspberries. Light, perfect sparkling. A masterpiece!
