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.

This beer is as perfect as they come. Completely true to style, with rich flavor, amazing color, and an outstanding aroma. You must find this beer and try it. I have not found it outside of Wisconsin.

Bottle with Ray. Pours a deep maroon with thin head and limited lacing. Smells like fresh homemade raspberry jam. Nice tartness, amazing raspberry flavor. Virtually no alcohol presence. New Glarus continuously makes incredible fruit beers and this is one of my favorites.

750 ml bottle from JStax. Pours a deep red color with a purple hue. Small pink foamy head that fades to a ring. Love the appearance. Smells like delicious raspberry jam. Taste has a nice sweetness which is slightly overpowered by the tart, acidic finish. Itís pretty awesome though, liquid raspberries. Medium to thick body with a nice soft carbonation. Love the mouthfeel, it seems to be silky smooth as your drinking it but then a bit sticky after you swallow. Overall, a small step below Belgian Red to me but still great.

Pours a dark reddish brown color with a brownish white head. Smells of very good raspberries. Taste lives up to the name... Tart raspberry flavor. Very enjoyable beer, and the wife even liked it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle into a HF wine glass. Huge thanks to yamar68 for this one! A - Pours a deep dark red/violet hue that is clear but lets little light through. Looks very wine like. Two fingers of dense tan/pink stained foam forms but settles into some thin patching. Swirling does generate an impressive new layer of foam and leaves behind some lacing. This might be a fruit beer, but it is not thin in the least bit. S - Raspberry jam. Thatís it. Obviously its pretty one dimensional, but when that lone dimension is amazingly ripe and tart raspberries itsís pretty acceptable. Oh how I love this aroma. T - Tart and sweet raspberries with just a touch of wheat which is found in the other NG fruit beers. The finish is ever so slightly acidic. It gets to be a bit much after a while but it absolutely nails the raspberry flavor. Mouth feel is thick and syrupy with moderate carbonation. O - New Glarus really impresses me with these fruit beers. This is just the most honestly raspberry forward thing Iíve have ever had that wasnít an actual raspberry. Not as exciting as Serendipity but just as wonderful as the Belgian Red.

Pours a dark purple with a white head. Aroma of sour raspberries. Just like a juice with a sour taste.

writerljberg (487) - Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2013
750mL bottle. Awesome. A: Swirling pour yields a dense foam headand a very bright red body with purple tones. N: Raspberry syrup, maraschino cherries, sugar, and some marionberry. Very very fruity. T: Super, super sweet with a sour tone to balance. M: Light and well carbonated. O: A dessert beer if there ever was one. Pair with rhubarb pie or somethin of that nature. Will become too much after time, despite the ABV.

Tons of raspberry, with sweet and tart flavors. Very refreshing and well balanced.
