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.

Head is initially small, fizzy, pink, fully diminishing. Body is dark reddish purple. Aroma is raspberry. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Really nothing but raspberry in the aroma; while that’s nice, it just doesn’t resemble beer in any way...this is soda pop from start to finish. I’m afraid I need more than that to give high scores.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 Rich red color, with rose colored rocky head, which diminishes moderately quickly. Heavly carbonated, like champagne. Strong raspberry aroma that is a little overpowering, tartness provides a relief from the sweetness. Sweet and sour raspberry flavor. Heavily carbonated tickling mouthfeel.

Deep ruby color witha pink head and some of the best lacing I have ever seen from a beer. Fresh raspberry aroma, but possibly more like raspberry jam and a slight hint of wood. Sour raspberry taste, but not as much as as I would have expected from the intense aroma. Also got that hint of wood in there too. Lush feeling in the mouth. This was good but I liked the Belgian red better.

Good, solid beer. Very similar with the Belgian Red as far as I can remember - just swap the tart cherries for tart raspberries. Sweet, tart raspberry combination with good hop quality. Carbonation decreased a little by the time I poured my second beer out of the bottle, but that’s to be expected when the bottle’s this big. Plus, my wife loved this beer. I can welcome this one into my home much more easily than Leine’s Berry Weiss. Well done, Dan and Deb.

Thanks to Mr. Facto for this beer.

Poured a deep reddish purple with minimal head, probably because it was served cold (as recommended on the bottle). Aroma is tart raspberry jam. Taste is reminiscent of Belgian Red, with a strong acidic tartness nestling against the flavor of sweet fresh raspberries. The taste is a little thicker and not quite as light and refresing as Belgian Red, but this is truly a world class beer. Damn, if only Wisonsin were closer, or if only New Glarus expanded their shipments.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 Big thanks to Captain Cougar for this one, it became the end of shower beer. Deep purple red, OK pink head that faded away slowly. Aroma is a pure shot of raspberry, bordering on syrupy. Massive mouth of raspberry, with a depth of flavor that speaks of oak and a hint of chocolate. Elegant and fantastic. If it finished drier, I would be utterly enthralled. RERATE at VRBT 2008. Notes and scores identical. Pure raspberry delight.

Raspberries, Chocolate. Purple body with a pink head. Taste is just like the name, almost like candy. A nice brew for sure.

Bottle from Flemdawg. Dark red color with a small pink head. Wow! What an incredible raspberry aroma. Flavor was sweet/tart raspberry and not much else. I could care less because the flavor was so intense and delicious. It would change from sweet to tart over and over in my mouth. I have to get more of this.

Shared this with jimmacko4 and Joeec5. Poured a dark rich burgaundy. The aroma was raspberyy, all the way. Small white hed. Man, all I can say is raspberry, raspberry, and raspberry. This was like Lindman’s Framboise, but had a tarter finssih. Very Nice.
