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.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2005 If given the choice between this and the Belgian Red, Iíd choose this. The flavor is much more fruity than sweet (although, after the initial tartness, quite sweet) and with a much better aroma. An excellent fruit beer. The key, as with the Belgian Red, is that the base beer is good on its own.

This pours nice and syrupy into the glass with a small pinkish purple head. Aroma is full of fruit and flowers. The appearance in the glass is almost a beaujolais, very nice. The taste is very tart for a moment and then sweet, with some buttered popcorn, and mustard seed, almost like biting into a McDonalds cheeseburger, call me weird but I got mustard out of this. Not bad.

Pours a deep red jewel type color, is this a fruit beer or a lambic? Hmmm....Very strong, musky raspberry aroma, a little cloying to the nose. Incredibly drinkable, like an over the top raspberry smoothy. Tart and sweet and oh, so tasty.

This is the best fruit beer Iíve had yet. Pours a nice blood red color with a very enticing reddish head. This brew left some excellent and beautiful lacing. The aroma is like a cobbler served on a hot summerís day. Raspberry sweetness balanced perfectly with a tartness that excites the tastebuds. In middle school, they used to serve these little pies that had raspberry filling that was kinda like this. I didnít know that fruit beers could be this good. Good full body that finishes dry and clean.

poured an opaque plum color with a salmon head that disipated quickly. By far one of my least favorite beers of all time. tasted more like a raspberry syrup I would put on a waffle than a beer. Ironic that all the malternatives got booed off of this site while this berry beer is lauded as one of the best. a rose by any other name...

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 16, 2004
This brew pours with a dark maroon body topped by a thick, pink head with lots of lacing. It looks sort of like a red wine, except it has a large foamy head. The aroma is sweet yet tart and full of raspberry notes with a slight maltiness and a little woodiness. It reminds me of a raspberry pie or tart. The flavor is sweet and full of raspberry, yet tart with a slight maltiness and a touch of wood. Medium to full bodied, syrupy yet dry.

I needed something refreshing to soothe the palate, after the shock that is Stoneís Ruination. This dark bburgundy beauty more than delivered. She poured with a vanishing pink head. Upon the first sip, I knew she was the one...she drew me in with her sweetness...toyed with we in touches of sour...held on to me with her strong oak grip...then let me down softly with a gentle finish. What is her ring size?

Not nearly as over-the-top as the cherry variety. Still, quite good. Some dryness definitely helps to avoid any cloying raspberry sweetness. Not a big fan of fruit beers, but New Glarus is always worth a sip.

Very nice dark cherry red color,small red head that faded slowly leaving little behind.Strong sweet raspberry aroma.Now this is a nice brew.It starts off almost like a nicely carbonated raspberry soda,sweet and full of fruit flavor,then in the middle it changes to a raspberry flavor with a little bit of a woodsy like taste a little acidic as well.Then it changes back to a nice flavor of raspberry soda again with a slight sweet and sour twist,with the sourness hanging on for awhile.Very nice brew and by far the best fruit beer iíve ever had.It makes me glad to know i have another one for a hot summer day.Thanks go to Jcapriotti for sending this very fine brew my way.

absolutely marvelous, my friends. this stuff really whips a pit bull's ass. not as sweet as lindeman's, though definitely more tart. a deep, complex finish. this stuff has character. each sip finishes with a smile...
