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.

A clear deep red beer sith a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet of a summers day in a raspberries scrup. The flavor is dominated by raspberries with sweetness and a slight sourness combined with a dryness that ends in a woodyness. All in all a great beer - I want more.

Deep purple color with a light purple fluffy head which clings well to the glass. Has a grape jelly aroma which reminds me of the filling in a Hostess fruit pie. The taste is like a raspberry fruit pie filling but with a touch of bitterness in the finish. I think I'll be echoing the thoughts of other raters when I say that the flavor is very one-dimensional but damn good. I'm enjoying mine at room temp but I think the brewer's suggesting of a cold serving is appropriate - it would make the flavor less overwhelming and the drink more refreshing.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2004
750ml capped bottle dipped in wax with no freshness date. Poured a cloudy dark violet color like grape juice. Oh man what an aroma! Big, Big raspberry aroma that is sweet and delicious smelling. Body is much fuller than I expected and really smooth with a sharp carbonated finish. The flavor here although one-dimensional is actually very good. There is so much raspberry in here that flavor of any other ingredient is pretty much buried. Finishes slightly tart and sweet, balanced in that aspect at least. Again, not a bad thing so if you like raspberry you will enjoy this. Also paired nicely with sharp Wisconsin Cheddar.

The name says it all. Blood red with a large creamy pink head. Strong nose and flavor of (big surprise) raspberries. Medium body, tart dry finish.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 Truly a unique beer. Combines the smoothness of an ale with the sweetness of wine. Hard to explain but definately a nice change of pace.

JK (4441) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2003
UPDATED: APR 6, 2004 Outstanding raspberry aroma. Dark red with pink foam. Very sweet by most standards, but not as sweet as lindemanns. Excellent raspberry flavor. Tart, of course. Flavor of wheat also. Somewhat dry.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Deep magenta color with small light pink head. Aroma is mainly raspberries with a slight hint of vinegar. Flavor is sweet berries up front followed by some tartness. Slightly acidic. Some wheaty malt flavors lie benath the berries and tartness. Very good stuff.

TChrome (1418) - Bedford, Texas, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Aroma is strong with elements of raspberries, vinegar, and a bit of barnyard. Appearance is gorgeous ruby red shining almost to the magnificence of the gemstone. Lively carbonation is evident. The beer deveops a nice purplish head when poured, but that mostly dissipates. Flavor is deliciously, raspberry sweet in the beginning, then a sharp tartness cuts in to contrast the sweetness. The finish is a bit dry and sweet again. A wonderful ale I will be happy to enjoy over and over again.
