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.

GTAEgeek (1258) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2014
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!

I thought Iíd had good raspberry beers before. Apparently I havenít. Near perfectly executed. Ruby pour with good head and lacing. Light touch of bitterness from the raspberry seeds. Tart and sweet. Wonderful. Bottle.

Poured from a bottle at a bottle share in DC. It is a red raspberry red color with a slight head. The aroma is raspberry and the taste is a sweet fresh picked berry flavor that has both a sweet and sour taste
