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.

Sample at Ale Alpharetta. Pours a hazy reddish-brown, with practically no head. The aroma is overwhelmingly raspberries. I struggle to come up with any other way to describe the aroma, except maybe some light caramel and wheat in the background. Heavy, fruity sweetness, and nicely tart. Medium body, sticky, sharp, and acidic. This is the way fruit beers should be done!

Hazy burnt amber, thin ringed head. Nose is rich billowing raspberry and lean grassy brightness. Initial taste is rich upfront tart, fading seedy berry. Soft carbonation and itchy tart mouthfeel. Finishes lean creamy raspberry, obvious, heavy sweetness. I’d be keen for more time with this. Cheers BnnnahhhhhhEhhjj

From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. The pour is a deep ruby with a thin light pink head and no to lacing as it falls down to a film. The aroma is incredibly sweet raspberries. It’s like a jam, almost to a point of being slightly off-putting. I was hoping for a little more of a tartness than the sweet bomb here. It’s still good, but doesn’t play into what the name suggests. The flavor is great. Lots of raspberry lots of syrup, and even a little bit of jam. The tartness comes through a little on the back end, but again, I was hoping for a little more. The mouth feel is thicker and jammy, with a soft carbonation lingeringly great fruity sweet finish. This is really good, but a little more tart on it, and it could’ve been amazing.

At Rich’s Massive Cellar Emptying Tasting. Raspberry tart with a medicine mixed with raspberry jam. A berry jam light brown. Light spritzy body and dry finish. Very very sweet and jammy raspberry. Alright but too sweet.

Have had this before...surprised I haven’t rated it. This is a mix of current pour and memory. Glowing red with some brown and moderate lacing. Recall loads of raspberry jam and dried raspberry...this latest has a distinct burnt marshmallow streak, but only I got it so maybe I’m crazy. Taste follows...recall raspberry jam, and dry tart raspberries...this latest has mostly burnt marshmallow over indistinct fruit.
