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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2005
750 mL bottle, goblet. Deep plum, slightly hazy hue. Pink, frothy, medium head. TONS of delicious raspberries. Musty, woody, caramel aromas. Heavily sweet, moderately acidic (tart) flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately acidic finish. Medium full body, velvety texture, moderate carbonation. The bottom line is: I *heart* NG fruit beers.

Thanks to lamas (via StewardofGondor) for the bottle. 1 pint 9 oz. bottle. Pours a deep ruby with a pink head that dissipates quickly. A moderate amount of lace. Nice raspberry aroma. Flavor is of sweet raspberries, but not sweet enough to deter me from drinking more than one. Finishes tart and is complemented by a perfect level of fiz from the carbonation. An extraordinary beer from New Glarus. I wish Wisconsin were closer to home.

Ruby and some purple with an airy pink head. Very unique. Aroma is a very tart raspberry fruityness along with some smooth sweet aromas. Very nice and fairly tart raspberry, followed by a syrupy sweetness. It’s a very plesant flavor and feel. Not like many fruit beers. There is substance and body and character in this beer. Makes for a very nice experience.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 This beer is great for dessert! Big raspberry nose. Deep red and slightly cloudy. Blows up in your mouth, sweet but balanced with its tartness. Finish of lush raspberries lasts for minutes.

Sweet natural raspberry aroma. Dark red, low foamy head. Very nice balance between a big berry flavor and with a proper lactic counterpoint. Prickling, dry mouthfeel. Swet exit - very nice good desert

Drinking this great beer on easter, after a wonderful day with family! I love the tartness of this beer, I don’t like stark sweetness. Nice ruby color, smelled the berries before I got the cap entirely off! Great brew. Thanks nick!

My WVU pre-game brew to share and co-rate with my wife (bring on Louisville!). Deep ruby, thick bubblegum colored head. Tremendous rich fruity nose of Smucker’s raspberry preserves with a just a tiny hint of wood. Flavor is one in the same, slightly sweet, yet tart fresh liquid raspberries. Medium bodied, light carbonation, and as you might guess.....rich raspberry preserve finish. Nobody does better fruit beers then NG. End of story....

Pours a very, very dark red. Aroma is brilliant rasberry. Flavor is sweet, full of tart extra-ripe rasberry. Reminds me of picking wild rasberries at my grandmothers. Thick, creamy body. Great is small quantities.

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.
