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.

Big time thanks for sharing this one jerc. Dark red pour, medium red dark red head. Freshly baked raspberry pie aroma - all real raspberry here, no artificialness at all. Tart raspberry taste over a medium mouthfeel. This is easily the best fruit beer I have ever tried because of its blend of incredible real fruit flavour with the characteristics of a beer - it never forgets its beer roots. You can taste some malt body to accompany the tart flavours; there is a nice lingering bitterness from the berries helped along by hops. Sure it is one dimensional, but what a dimension! Well done, a true treat.

Very dark ruby body with a nice tan-pink head that defies an accurate colour description. Massive leafy raspberry aroma with green viney quality. Flavour and aroma are tart yet sweet in the depths. Flavour is richly raspberry with a pleasant moderate tartness throughout. My impression is that it lacks the complexity of the Belgian Red, but makes up for it in higher drinkability. Medium palate. Quite nice. Thanks again JPDIPSO. This brewery is rapidly gaining a permanent place in my heart.

Bottle shared with jerc and tupalev - courtesy of jerc. Deep, dark ruby colour with a small head the colour of pink cotton candy. HUGE aroma of fresh, tart raspberries. Flavour of the same, with some sweet malt lurking in the shadows doing its damnedest to balance the puckering tartness of the berries. A remarkable & truly unique beer, and a great choice to close our little Saturday afternoon tasting session.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 19, 2005
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.

hopdog (11653) - 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.
