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.

This is beer? Itís very fruity. The only bitterness (in a grassy, meady way) is a quick rush at the very beginning of a sip, and unfortunately this is unpleasant. The raspberry quickly takes over though and the result is a syrupy alcoholic beverage.

Very deep ruby/garnett hue. Pinkish tan head sticks around for a while. Floral fruity tons of raspberry in the nose. Starts off slightly sweet, medium bodied, sourness kicks in on the finish. Tons of raspberry, very pleasant, very drinkable. There are endless possibilities in using this beer.New Glarus is great, I wish I could find all their brews. An excellant very quaffable fruit brew.

GABF 2002: Amazing! Rich deep dark almost bloody purple color. Nice raspberry aroma. Excellent raspberry flavors with smooth beer like traits and not overly sweet in the least.

Great characteristics in this one, smell, look, and appearence in the champagne flute. Just couldnít get to like the taste of it. Doesnít mean it is bad just donít seem to be able to get a enjoyable experience in drinking this one. Ended up watching my guests drink the rest of the bottle while I went back to the Spotted Cow ale.

Wonderfully tart. Looks like grape juice but has a wonderful mix of malt and fruit. Not much hop flavor, but the tartness makes up for any lost bitterness. A silky smooth body warms the palate as it goes down. A great breakfast beer.

I love raspberry and I like fruit beers. This is high quality raspberry, pretty darn sugary, and in only a marginal way was it beery. I want more beer in my fruit beer (Dark Horse Tres Bluberry Stout is an excellent example, as is Quelque Chose). Perhaps a bit of Hallertau emerges as it warms. Still yummy. And very berry. Just not beery.

Better then the Belgian Red, this beer is one of my all time favorites. I lose all objectivity when I drink this stuff because it is so damn wonderful. Donít pass this up if you have a chance to try it. Powerful good beer.

TAR (2410) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 Pours with a muddy red raspberry color with admirable head retention. The aroma embodies overwhelmingly ripe raspberry jam. Somehow, the raspberry contributions, and raspberry only, display a very nice complexity that must be sampled to understand. The base of this beer is clearly founded upon their Belgian Red recipe, or vice versa. Undisputably the most fruity and delicious fruit beer available. IMO, the only fruit beer that hails in comparison in ripe fruitiness and quality would be Lindeman's Framboise draft. This is not a Flanders Red, but rather a nonesuch fruit beer.
