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.

One of the best smelling beers ever. Like overripe raspberries in syrup. Pours a magnificent thick red colored jam of a brew. But thatís where the fun ends! I am ABSOLUTELY certain that I got a bad bottle of this. Probably was sitting on the shelf too long. It tasted like a mouth full of aluminum foil, and burned my throat like hell. It tasted truely awful. I canít imagine itís supposed to taste this horrible, and reiterate that Iím sure it was an old bottle. But for $7 a bottle the brewer should take precautions that their product doesnít sit on store shelves too long. Until I get to try a fresh bottle (are you reading this New Glarus Brewing Company??) my rating stands: Looks and smells great! Tastes horrible!!!

Another round of thanks to beerhandy! What a treat. I prefrred this to the Belgian Red. Didnít seems as sweet and had a nice bit of tart to it. Couldnít drink very much of it but it was beautiful on looks and smelled wonderful.

WOW! I love this beer. it pours an incredibly deep and rich maroon color with a think and lasting pink tinged head. The aroma is so wonderful... like a fresh raspberry pie (or insert your favorite raspberry desert here). The flavor matches the aroma, except you get a nice hint of tartness in the flavor which only serves to add to the taste. itís a lot to drink and there is no way i could have finished a bottle myself, but grab a friend and open one up... well worth it!

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a ruby red raspberry with a small head. Aroma is all raspberry with some sourness. Full on tart raspberry flavor. This was a great raspberry based fruit beer, enjoyed this more than Lindemans.

Very dark purple color. Dark cream head with creamy lacing. Huge sweet raspberry aroma. Massive raspberry flavor. Sticky mouthfeel. Amazingly delicious and decadent.

Boutip (5950) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle: Poured a deep red color fruit beer with a nice bubbly pink head with minimal retention. Aroma of fresh sweet raspberries is just incredible and I could spend days just sniffing in my glass. Taste consisted of sweet fresh raspberry (not the chemical syrupy raspberry that are commonly used in fruit beers), slight tartness and a light acidic finish. Itís a shame that I cannot obtain this beer more regularly over here.

From a bottle, most recent vintage. NG does a nice job with this, although I always find I enjoy the cherry more than the raspberry, perhaps because Door County cherries are exceptional. This poors the expected dark, cloudy, and opaque amber red. On the nose, notes of tart raspberries with a bit of lemon zest. On the palate, more of the same, with a few other fruit notes like dried apricot coming across. A fine drink indeed.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2012 Sparkling ruby clear pour, with a light amount of rose colored head. Bright FRESH raspberries dominate the aroma. Intoxicating and enticingly fresh picked. Wow. Candy. Rich sugar sweet full of raspberries that taste like they just came from the bush. Flavor morphs with a touch of light sweet malt, a hint of dry hops, and then finishes with a fantastic warming flourish of Dom Perignon. Bubbly. You definately donít think youíre drinking beer. Very three tiered flavor presentation. Complex. Palate is sweet, clear and clean. Crisp. Light touch of alcohol. Hands down the best fruit beer Iíve ever put to my lips.

Thanks Secret Santa! whoever you are. This is definately a great suprise. This pours a opaque red, with a tint of brown. Similar to tomato juice. Smell is nothing like tomatos, this is pure goodness. It fills the nostrils with a wild raspberry smell, like some elegent and freshly made candies. I really dont know what to say about this taste other than the name of the beer. It doesnít offer a real beer-like flavor at first, but there is a slight malt and wheat flavor that peaks out. The palate is generous in how smooth it ends up being. The palate is like fresh green apple peals right behind your teath with a heavy berry taste everywhere else. Great beer.
