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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2007 Pours a unique color that combines orange and purple, with a nice reddish head that leaves good lacing. Huge berry aroma. Thick mouthfeel and it starts sweet and ends sour. Tart aftertaste. Another one-of-a-kind beer from New Glarus.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Deep,rapberry,red colored with the most defined,white,head I've seen.The milky,ring contrasts the red perfectly.The raspberry aroma is evident soon after removing cap.It is just gushing out of the glass.Intensely smooth,not to sweet,mouthfeel.Raspberry flavors with subtle wood,wheat(hardly noticable)with the age old hops hardly noticable in the finsih.Raspberries are everywhere and are delicious.Totally clean tasting and delicious.Hope I can score more before Illinois is out.

Crimson color. Very sweet. The raspberry taste is very strong. My friends all wanted a "real beer" after drinking this, but I enjoyed it immensly.

Not as good as the Cherry version, but still damn good.

Deep, deep red. Not much head, but tons of lacing. Obviously, raspberry dominates throughout. Starts a bit sour, turns sweet and moves back to sour in the finish. The body is nice--not too thick, not too thin. Lovely aroma, nice flavor, and something significantly different. I definitely enjoyed it.

This is beer? It’s 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 couldn’t get to like the taste of it. Doesn’t mean it is bad just don’t 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.
