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.

Thanks to egajdzis (Iím pretty sure, anyway) for hooking me up with this, what an outstanding beer, absoutely spectacular, dark purple in color, very little head which was pink & just hung out around the sides of the glass, very little lacing as well, all raspberries in the nose, really draws you in to drink it, nothing much other than straight raspberries in the flavors as well, a bit on the sour side too, very smooth & very drinkable, awesome fruit beer

Poured a dark purple with a small pink head and light lacing on the glass. Aroma of straight raspberries, very intoxicating. Sour raspberry taste, also very sweet. Obviously given the 4%, no alcohol noticed here.

Pours into my glass with a deep pink colored head. The beer is a dark red color that is approaching black (though it has a ways to go). I get strong aromas of raspberries emanating from my glass as I pour this beer. The sweet raspberry notes dominate the aroma, though perhaps a hint of acidity comes through, but not much else. The beer is definitely sweet. It has a full fruity flavor and an almost thick body from the residual sugars that are left behind. It is quite tart in the finish, though it could perhaps use a bit more to balance the syrupy sweetness. I also get a bit of raspberry skin tannin in the finish. The sweetness really over powers that rest of the complexity that might be found in the base beer. This is definitely enjoyable, but is a bit too sweet and cloying to be a íbeerí for me.

This tastes delicious- like raspberry soda. This would be a 5 on ratesoda.com...

Pours a very dark red color with small, fizzy head. Aroma is strong with raspberries. Taste weighs hevaily on the raspberries taking out any malt or hop flavor. Itís hard to imagine this actually being beer! Itís quite tasty, but if youíre not too keen on raspberries, itíd be disgusting.

Tons of raspberry in this one. Light purple/deep red pour with a small pinkish purple head. Flavor and aroma are strong in raspberry. Very sweet with some tartness.

Opague burgundy, medium mauve head. (What the hell is mauve?), aroma of tartness and papery stale hops. What can I say that hasnít been said before? The mouthfeel is lovely, aroma simplistic but savory, the taste let me down a bit, more a fucntion of the red raspberries used (which I donít like as much as the black kind), than any actual flaw of the beer. Thanks GrainBeltGuzzler!

Dark purple with a purple head and some lacing. Aromas of tart raspberries and musky malts. Kind of surprised me with how good it was. Flavors. Oh yeah, good stuff. Sour and barnyard. Raspberries, brown sugar, and musky. Fluffy palate, thick body finishing tart and dry.

Nice purple head covered the dark crimson red pour. Beautiful lacing covered the glass. The head dissapated very quickly and just left the aroma of a raspberry pie. Just like grandma used to make, crust and all. This brew makes you want to grab a fork and eat it. Taste was very tart and very raspberry! Smell matched the taste perfectly and made this a wonderful brew. Thanks BŁck Dich! Happy Birthday!
