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.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 Bottle at Mondial 2005. Aroma is more of acidic sour raspberries that is mildly pungent. Very lambic-like in aroma. Nice transparent ruby color with a touch of orange color and a small pinkish head. Very sweet to start, almost sugar cane-like. Turns sour and slightly more acidic in the middle. Sweet finish. A nice beer that is almost cloying to start, but finishes very nicely. (7/5/8/4/15)~~~~~~RE=RATE~~~~~~~~~Aroma has tons of sweet, good raspberry notes. So aromatic. Really nice for what it is. Body is an erythematous transparent color with a pinkish head present. The head is fairly strong and medium. Starts with a sweet, somewhat tart raspberry flavor. Lingering acidity late. Nice tartness. Not too sweet or cloying. Enjoyable, one-dimensional, straight-forward. Good stuff.

750 mL bottle. Poured a translucent reddish plum-purple with a slight pinkish head that didn’t hang around too long. The aroma from the bottle was raspberry jam...plain and simple, and very nice....after is warmed slightly one could detect some light caramel malt and woody aromas. Initial raspberry sweet flavor gives way to the expected sour tart flavor...but not overly so. For me this was full bodied with a smooth texture and moderately carbonated. Splendid example of the fruit style.

Another excellent fruit beer from New Glarus. This one doesn’t present the complexity of their Belgian Red (cherry), but instead is more straight to the point of raspberry flavor. So what we have here is a short head which is expected due to the acidity of the fruit, and a strong, deep red raspberry color. Flavor is pretty much a mix of 4/5 raspberry and 1/5 malt, and hops kick in rather surprisingly on the finish. The friends I shared this with are non-BeerRatians and thought Raspberry Tart would just be an overpriced wine cooler; instead they were impressed with the balance of this brew! Give it a try if you can find it.

Awesome red color. Aroma is unmistakeably rasberry. Hits me as soon as the bottle is popped. Taste is rasberries, rasberry seeds, fresh rasberries, not very tart, just a bit sweet, more fresh rasberries, GO RASBERRY ><

Some like the cherry (red) better, but I actually like the Rasberry Tart just a small bit more. I rate them the same, but if they are both sitting in front of me, I’ll drink this one faster. This is a fantastic beer with all the flavor you would expect without the disagreeable (to me anyhow) aftertaste most Belgians have.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 18, 2005
750 mL bottle served in champagne flute. Pour was deep reddish purple when held to light.. with a 1/4" raspberry head. Sweet raspberry aroma. Mouthfeel was very lively due to rather high carbonation. Taste was like a basket of fresh tart raspberries. The label does not lie in the least bit. Only other flavor noted was a faint oakiness. Very good flavor, but this was not really my style.

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.
