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.

A really nice beer. It had a wonderful taste that wasn’t artifical at all. I could taste real berries in it. It smelled great just like fresh fruit and the color was fantastic. No doubt I will gladly buy this again when I get a chance.

Bottle from Clint (starcross) -- cheers! I’ve never had a beer like this. Forget the name, there’s nothing tart or sour about this beer. Instead, it somehow manages to taste like an alcoholic bowl of fresh raspberries. There’s a ton of strong, authentic fruit flavor in the bottle, and the beer itself is an incredible reddish-purple color. I served it for dessert at Thanksgiving, and everyone from my twenty-something cousins up to my 85 year old grandmother loved it.

Intense raspberries, dry grain malts, creamy, straw. Slightly hazy, reddish amber, small, off-white head. Medium sweet and sour. Overripe raspberries, sweet, yet dry fruit, raspberry syrup, light tart, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Beautiful Fruit Beer, intense and yet complex throughout. Keg at Sugar Maple, Milwaukee.

Pours a cloudy burgundy. Cherry raspberry aroma kinda mild compared to the Belgian cherry I had yesterday. Mineral. Hints of leather and a bit of spice, kinda oddly some slight funky beef jerky/soy sauce. Some mild woodiness. Taste is a raspberry cherry with some mild dry mild wood with some vanilla. Certainly quenching and flavorful, good for summer. Not too tart. Fairly balanced with a tart finish.

Bottle courtesy of maniac and oh so grateful. Smells like a mixed bouquet of raspberries and vanilla blossom. Honestly better than any perfume. Not actually that tart. Sweet and smooth. Hard to believe it’s a beer. Frothy pink head. Minimal aftertaste except a bit of cream or honey. So freaking good.

Pours dark red with a large light pink head that fades to a frothy cap and leaves behind great lacing. AROMA: raspberry, raspberry, raspberry and raspberry!!!! Cough syrup, raspberry pie and concentrated gelatin. TASTE: get some!!! AFTER TASTE: you’ll never know! This is fan-fucking-tastic!!

Wow, this beer does not disappoint, perfectly balanced with the smell of fresh raspberries on a hot summer day.

Pours a dark red color with a nice head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is of cherries,, raspberries, figs, acetic acid, and honey. Tastes of sugar immediately followed by tart raspberries and sour cherries. Super smooth and very palatable. Awesome beer!

750 ml wax-dipped bottle courtesy of Homer’s FBW contest. Aroma is overripe raspberries, vinegar. Pours a murky rust-like hue with a collapsing bone-white head. Taste is pureed raspberries (both flesh and seeds of the fruit screaming with flavor), tart and sweet as raspberries tend to be. As good of a fruit beer as one can imagine outside of lambics.

Another beer I’d never have the pleasure of trying without John Erb, who never seems to leave his home state of Wisconsin before considering his friend’s beer hobby. Aroma: The raspberry character is at once candied and tart; there’s some lighter, but healthy level of dark chocolate as well. Appearance: Slightly hazy chocolate raspberry pour with soft carbonation holding up an off-pink head that settles into a thin ring. Flavor: Candied raspberry and chocolate with tartness more subtle initially; candied elements and chocolate back off to give the light tartness a boost; the tartness continues on through the lingering finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: After having Serendipity and Belgian Red, the novelty of these NG fruit beers has worn off a bit. That said, this is still stellar stuff, and one I’d definitely recommend without reservation.
