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.

Dark red color. Small head. Aroma is raspberry and malts. A big bold raspberry flavor. Malty and slightly sweet. The raspberry flavor predominates this beer. Still beer like, despite all the fruit flavor. As usual with New Glarus its very smooth. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Jcalabre called the description spot on. Every thing about this brew is rasberries that jsut happened to be brewed. Very sweet and full of Rasberry jam, fresh rasberries, rasberry pie filling, and a little pie crust. Its more of a dessert than anything, would love to find a bottle to try some cooking with.

It looked like a glass of cloudy merlot. Huge nose & flavor of... Raspberries. These guys did this one right. It's not a beer w/ some raspberries thrown in. It's the sweet/tart taste of raspberries, that happens to be a beer. Great job.

that color..its just dark evil evil red..with a thin purple halo of head..all tart raspberries in the aroma..with maybe a hint of hops..and lots of anticipation of sweetness..nice raspberry jam flavors..with a nice tartness noticed on the top of the mouth..nice dry vinous ending..the beer is lost in all the fruitiness though...so.

Well, the name doesn't lie. It tastes like raspberries, and it is tart. The full bodied texture makes this highly drinkable. It's a lively fizz brew that finishes dry.

I'm trying to be fair to a beer with an incredible level of sweetness that I was not prepared for. Overall, pretty good for what it is. Recommended with some nice chocolates or a piece of cheesecake.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2003 Yes it has Raspberries, yes it is tart, but what scores it big marks is the remarkable freshness and drinkability of this stuff. Slightly musty notes in the nose beneath the huge fresh berries. Lively carbonation and tiny alcohol content. Very nice, nearly as good as the Belgian Red (Cherry).

1/1/03. My welcome home beer from South America. Strong raspberry aroma. Opaque, dark reddish color with a cranberry colored head that rapidly faded. Started off very sweet then got tart. Strong raspberry flavor. Lightly carbonated. I enjoyed it but wished that there was more going on with the flavor.

What a fantastic fruit beer. Lots of raspberry throughout. I like this much better than the cherry.

Wow! The only major difference between this and the cherry offering is the two fruits. The cherry brings a slight sourness that is pleasing. This beer is sweet, but not unpleasantly so, and makes you forget every bad raspberry beer you have ever had.
