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.

Bottle. Courtesy of joeybgood. Pours a deep magenta with a tall pink head. Nose is strong raspberry, some frutose sweetness and perhaps some other berry notes. It also has tartness to it. Not unlike Lindeman’s Framboise. Taste is tart raspberry, mild sweetness, other fruit notes and fruit pulp. Body is dry, tart and only slightly acidic. Very refreshing fruit beer. Finished with more raspberry and berry notes, light sweetness and a decent tartness. Great stuff!

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Pours deep brown reddish with a thick pink head. Very heavy and full raspberry syrup aroma, mostly sweet but with a nice sour edge. Flavor is tart raspberry and blackcurrant (!) with notes of lemon. Very flavorfull and with a sharpness that bides on the tongue. Hints of malt in there also. A very nice, tasty and interesting fruit beer. Big thanks to Mike (Eyedrinkale) for sending it to Denmark!

Bottle - thanks to marinaro500 for the trade. Pours dark purple and clear with a generous light purple head that diminishes mostly. Aroma of wow - berries, berries, berries. Raspberries dominate, but there are hints of blackberry, malt, yeast and a bit of hop bitterness along with the tartness of the berries. Definitely want to drink this one cold because it got a bit cloying as it warmed. Medium body and gentle, tickling carbonation. A real treat, but it’s an ale to share - I found I couldn’t drink more than a couple of small glasses at one sitting.

Ah finally busted this bad boy out to share as an after Thanksgiving dinner beer. Pours a beautiful glowing ruby red with a white head. The aroma is rasberry, cranberry, pear, and grape. The flavor starts with a candy like sweetness and then changes to a perfect tart. The fruity tart finish in this beer is absolutely exquisite.

nearly opaque reddish black, fluffy pink head. raspberry "tart" eh? doesn’t smell very tart, very much like a lindeman’s framboise. phenomenal flavor of raspberry, grape, pear, with plenty of lambic-like sourness. just barely enough tang to offset the fruitiness. excellent beer! looking forward to the bottle of belgian red even more now. seems a little too sweet, not unlike the lindemans.

Bottle courtesy of Styles. Aroma reminds me of my child labor days in the Oregon raspberry fields during the summer. Lambic sour notes are also noticeable in the aroma. Big fruity flavor at the beginning and a sour/tart middle. Smooth. A pleasure to drink.

Pailhead (5443) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Bottle: Obvious rasberry and some sourness in the aroma. Pours a very dark reddish-brown with a decent pinkish head that’s gone within a minute. Flavor is all raspberry. Finishes on the sour side. Reminds me a lot of Lindeman’s Framboise with a stronger rasberry flavor and more sour finish. Very tart. Has a very slight vinegar taste. Just like the other New Glarus beers I’ve had, does not make you feel like you are drinking a beer. Either way, it is very good.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 21, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2005 Pours a dark wine red, with a nice reddish white head that dissipates slowly. Beautiful aroma of raspberries. Flavor is BAM! Raspberries, tart flavorful, juicy raspberries. Dry finish. No alcohol detectable at all for me. What a beer...
