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.

The flavor is on the light side, but still incredibly enjoyable and refreshing. Sweet and tart, as expected. It tastes different from most lambics due to the lack of Belgian yeast flavors. The carbonation adds a lot of depth to the palate, and for me this was one of the best things about this beer. It isn’t fizzy; instead there is a light, bubbly froth that reminds me of a well-made cappuccino. Subtle and well-crafted.

Received in a trade from BVery -- This is easily the best fruit beer I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. This is just a wow in a bottle. Very fruity and juicy.

750 ml bottle shared by Jon. Thanks man! Pours a translucent color of, well, raspberries. Poofy bubbles make up the thin head of this beautiful glass of beer. Aroma is, again, raspberries, but really fresh ones. Amazing - this is beer? Flavor is deliciously sweet raspberries, not much else to report. I am reminded of the complexity of pie. All around amazing flavors, crisp finish. Delicious. From notes 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord tasting)

aroma: raspberry, vanilla, raspberry, raspberry appearance: golden red body; creamy white head; lively carb bubble action for that a$$ taste: sweet and tart raspberry, sweet vanilla ice cream, ends with a slightly sour berry note. palate: creamy with refreshing soda like carb fizziness, no shizzy. finishes long and juicy, slightly bitter/sour. greatest fruit beer i’ve had yet. beats out rubaeus by a slim but definitive margin.

revolution2718 (203) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Pours a dark red/brown with a half finger of quickly dissipating wispy head. Nose is dominated by raspberry jam. Taste is raspberry jam, extremely sweet, a bit of planty dryness at the very end. Mouthfeel is a bit syrupy. I want more tart in this beer. Really tasty, but a bit too sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a hazy reddish brown with a thin white head. Nose is huge raspberry with some vegetal notes. Taste is sweet raspberry with minimal tartness. There is also some spice on the backend. Love this beer.

Wow. This is just an amazing beverage. Sweet and refreshing. The depth of flavor New Glarus gets out of their beers is incredible. Pours red with a thin head. Full raspberry flavor is present throughout. Not too tart. A great framboise. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle from Rays in Tosa - cellar aged 6 months and shared at fridge temperature with Randy & Laura for Memorial Day. Pours a pinkish brown with a pink head leaving some lace. Aroma has a very strong raspberry presence, with sweet and tart fruits involved as well. Definitely raspberry-forward. Taste brings more raspberry leading, with some tart fruit presence (cranberries?) and sweetness (apples?) in the mix. Some certain oaky barrel presence. Slightly carbonated. Light to medium bodied. Finishes sweet and tart. Somewhere in the mix between a wine, a wine cooler and a fruit drink. Not their best fruit beer, IMO, but still a very solid, tasty effort.

ryecatcher (717) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
750mL bottle. Pours a ruby red with big pinkish tinted head, exceptional retention and decent lacing. Nose is a freaking berry farm, sweet like syrup... not sure how tart this ’Tart’ will be (I’m doubtful). Mouth is (as I guessed) pretty damn sweet. Not horrible, but a little too much raspberry soda for my taste -- more like one of those wine coolers the girls were pounding in the 80s. There is wheat evident on the finish, and the mouthfeel too, but the berries overwhelm everything else. Picked this up at a Walmart in WI... which should’ve been my first clue. I may be in the minority, but I just didn’t dig this beer.
