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.

cblado (250) - Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Pours a deep ruby color, light head, which is also pink. Three words can sum up this beer: raspberry, raspberry, raspberry. Definite tartness as well, slight acidity, no hop or malt flavor. Hard to think of this as a "beer", but delicious nonetheless.

Garrold (1893) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Hazy, dark red. Film of white head. Big raspberry. Cherry tart, or more specifically a Bakewell tart. Taste is light tart, and plenty of sweet, although it’s not cloying or hard work. Nice.

DanielBrown (3961) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle at Cotteridge Convention 2015. I’ve long fancied this beer, ever since my early days on RB. Something about the name made it sound delicious. Upon sampling in found it to be a lovely framboise - the type that got me interested in beer all those years ago. Murk, sweet jam. This is dedicated to maeib.

Theydon_Bois (10353) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to Leighton, 24/01/14. Murky reddish amber with a decent crimson/beige covering. Nose is raspberry syrup, tarte red berries, spice, sweet licks. Taste comprises more raspberry syrup, sweet berry redux, light cherry notes. Medium body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with sweet licks. Another solid fruit beer but 4+!?

Mr_Abner (41) - Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2015
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 (941) - 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 (615) - 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
