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.

KAME (160) - California, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Much more tart and sour than the Belgian Red makes this an equally fine beer. Pours a dark ruby red with a dark pink head. Aroma of tart raspberries and cherries. Flavor is solid and very tart, but still a little too sweet for my tastes. I wish it was dryer and less syrupy. I really enjoy the sour funk that is present, but I think it would benefit from being bottle conditioned with some live bacteria.

Bottle into tulip glass. Pours a reddish dark amber with a very fine, off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is of sweet raspberries, raspberry juice. This is a sweet beer, though not cloying. Tastes of ripe raspberries, the tartness is buried by the sweetness. Substantial body, a bit syrupy; soft, fine carbonation.

ericdevin (935) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle via unknown. Pours a luminous reddish-pink, not much head. Aroma fruity, some lacto, white sugar. Body lively but sickly sweet-sour. Really? This is sweet to the point of being gross.

ARH (612) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2015
750 mL bottle poured into a Belgian tulip. Overripe raspberries come through in abundance. As it mellows, the aroma becomes more raspberry pie with some cranberry notes and just a light dampness that dissappears into background. It pours a unique, clear, sparkling cranberry color with a pink foamy head that retains a medium thin ring and leaves a splotchy, light, runny lace. The taste is highly sweet with a medium high sour, a light bitter, and maybe even a bit salty, too. The beer is thin, yet oily, and a bit sticky as it warms. The carbonation is bubbly and fizzy. The light body contains notes raspberries throughout the drink (so much raspberry). It finishes crisp with raspberries, a little bit of pie crust, and grass at the finish. It’s highly astringent with notes of light grass lingering with berries (raspberry cherry). A very tart, decently refreshing drink.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a dark red color with an off-white head. The aroma was of tart raspberries and some funk. The taste was of raspberries with some tartness and hints of funk. Mighty tasty.

Thanks to P and K. Quite good. Sweeter than I expected and thicker but good level of tartness and big berry flavor. Serving: Bottle

750 ml bottle pours a clear brownish red with small dissapating head and very little lacing. Aroma is all raspberries with perhaps a touch of wheat. Taste is sweet with a tart finish, Body is medium with lively carbonation. Another great dessert beer to be shared with friends.

Salmoniform (1073) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Brownish redish hue with white head that dissipated. Aroma is raspberry, sugar, slight lactic. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a slight tart following. Overall this is a sweet beer but nice to share with others.
