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.

Well this is interesting. Im not sure I would qualify this one as a beer. No hops, malt. LOTS of rasberry. Very delicious, refreshing. Would be great with dessert.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 ReRate-this was one of the first ratings we did, so it did not give this beer justice. Pours a deep cranberry hue with nice pink head. Wonderful boquet of raspberries, vineous, sweet, sourness. wounderful flavors of raspberries, other berries, and that wine-vineous palate. A wonderful fruit beer from those who know it best.

Hardly tastes like a beer. But as far as fruit beers go, I couldn’t imagine a better one. Very tart and very raspberry. Raspberries are my favorite fruit.

Probably the best fruit beer that I’ve had. I was very impressed.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 The pour is a nebulous deep raspberry red, the head monstrous in size, creamy in texture, and a winsome cherry pink in color, the lace a satiny sheet to conceal the glass. The tart raspberry nose is a treat; the start sweet and sour, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is crisply acidic, fruit tart, the finish is dry and quite a treat from my usual over the top beers. A very intriguing beer, quite different as I never hunt out these types? Well I think I've made a mistake, which will not be repeated in the future.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2004 October 2001: Great, great fruit beer; almost too intense, too fruity to really feel like a 'beer'; and I love fruit beers! Love the sweet/tart balance, the color. Best non-Belgian raspberry-flavored beer out there in my opinion. Wish they were still making the apple beer though.9/5/8/4/18=4.4

Flemish Sour Tasting with MartinT & Rastacouere Part 1 #10. New Glarus turned out to be the star of the show, and not just for the much vaunted (and now perfect, for me) Belgian Red but also for this just-as-good masterpiece of fresh raspberry goodness. Totally opaque dark burgundy with a marvellous pink Cool-Whip topping. Incredibly potent fresh-picked fruit aroma might just edge the Red for best fruit-beer nose in the world. Massively fruity all the way through, with some great caramel bits, fresh raspberry leaf and chocolate. The reason it's not quite perfect for me is that the acidity, while wonderful and necessary to keep the sweetness from cloying, is just a hair too much. But I'm quibbling. Do yourself a favor and get a case each of this and the Belgian Red and make everyone you know who doesn't like fruit beers gorge themselves on it. And then tell the brewers that you'll keep doing it and buying them out until they bring back the Apple Ale!

Strong raspberry odor, very nice. Is almost purple-ish in color. Very tart raspberry flavor while you still get a bit of a barley malt flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2003 Once again the new glarus brewery has given us all an absolutely wonderful beer to enjoy. This one has a great rasberry flavor to it yet still remains solid. The only other fruit beer that rivals this is there cherry.

As Lambics and Rails go this is a superior product. Make it a chick favorite and I think a younger man might have an angle. Too heavy on the raspberry for me.
