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.

Very red color with a pink head. This is a beer to be shared. I can see using some in an average gueuze to add some flavor. Aroma and flavor is all rasberries. Not too sweet and not too tart but just right. Could be my favorite fruit beer.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2004 Pours blood red. Aroma is sweet, slightly tart raspberries. The flavor is the same sweet with a slightly sharp raspberry tartness. The aroma and flavor are of very fresh ripe berries. Excellent beer.

Extravagant nose full of Raspberry greets you as take in this beer. Poured a dark purple with a slight pink head which clung to the sides of the glass. Very tart on the palate, hence the name, but it went down real smooth leaving a sweet after taste. If I could of gotten more at the Philly RB gathering I would have but the bottle emptied quick. A good fruit beer.

Thanks to egajdzis (I’m pretty sure, anyway) for hooking me up with this, what an outstanding beer, absoutely spectacular, dark purple in color, very little head which was pink & just hung out around the sides of the glass, very little lacing as well, all raspberries in the nose, really draws you in to drink it, nothing much other than straight raspberries in the flavors as well, a bit on the sour side too, very smooth & very drinkable, awesome fruit beer

Poured a dark purple with a small pink head and light lacing on the glass. Aroma of straight raspberries, very intoxicating. Sour raspberry taste, also very sweet. Obviously given the 4%, no alcohol noticed here.

Pours into my glass with a deep pink colored head. The beer is a dark red color that is approaching black (though it has a ways to go). I get strong aromas of raspberries emanating from my glass as I pour this beer. The sweet raspberry notes dominate the aroma, though perhaps a hint of acidity comes through, but not much else. The beer is definitely sweet. It has a full fruity flavor and an almost thick body from the residual sugars that are left behind. It is quite tart in the finish, though it could perhaps use a bit more to balance the syrupy sweetness. I also get a bit of raspberry skin tannin in the finish. The sweetness really over powers that rest of the complexity that might be found in the base beer. This is definitely enjoyable, but is a bit too sweet and cloying to be a ’beer’ for me.

This tastes delicious- like raspberry soda. This would be a 5 on ratesoda.com...

Pours a very dark red color with small, fizzy head. Aroma is strong with raspberries. Taste weighs hevaily on the raspberries taking out any malt or hop flavor. It’s hard to imagine this actually being beer! It’s quite tasty, but if you’re not too keen on raspberries, it’d be disgusting.

Tons of raspberry in this one. Light purple/deep red pour with a small pinkish purple head. Flavor and aroma are strong in raspberry. Very sweet with some tartness.
