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 is a near-perfect fruit beer and my current second favorite after New Glarusí Belgian Red, a cherry beer. It has strong raspberry aroma and great red, cloudy appearance with a good pink head that rapidly dissipates. Is all natural and tastes very fresh as if the raspberries were picked the same day you drank it! The one year aged hops complement the beer well. It has appropriate sweetness and tartness in itís consumption. It is nearly perfect being slightly more acidic than my tastes once in a while. Excellent fruit beer in all ways that represents raspberries really well. Was 2nd best fruit beer in the world in ratings recently.

Bottle. Hazy dark amber with spongy pinkish- beige head, raspberry aroma, sweet and sour raspberry taste, smooth and thick body, long tart finish. Delicious but does not feel like beer.

Fritz123 (1100) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Draft at the Cajun Cafe beer festival. Poured into small snifters. Brilliant reddish purple color with a pinkish fluffy head. The aroma is raspberries galore with a slight tartness and oak barrel. The taste is amazing with serious raspberries, blackberries, and a tartness. It is rather sweet which is the only downside but who cares. It is a delicious fruit beer with some tartness and dryness at the finish. Very very good.
