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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a champagne flute. The beer pours a deep ruby color, with a fairly frothy light pink head. The nose shows notes of strawberry, in a manner that almost seems artificial. Background notes of bready malt come through. The palate is unabashedly sweet, lacking the expected tartness, and coming dangerously close to being cloying. The strawberry flavor comes through and is pleasant. Carbonation is moderate, mouthfeel is appropriate. The finish leaves a fairly large amount of residual sweetness and strawberry character. Overall, a very pleasant drinking experience, especially as a dessert beer, but not quite a "tart."

Salmoniform (1012) - 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.

750ml bottle, wax top. Pours dark ruby brown with minimal head. Strong sweet raspberry smell and flavor. Slightly tart but sweet smooth finish. Another awesome fruit beer from New Glarus!!

Bule (871) - California, USA - DEC 7, 2014
750ml bottle pours a dark red color with a bit of frothy head. Tart at first, but smooths out very quickly. Incredible depth of fresh raspberry flavor.

Beardaxe (266) - - DEC 6, 2014
Poured from bottle into tulip. Muted aroma that didn't offer much. Luckily the flavor came through in a big way. Great balance of sweet and tart, great mouthfeel, and easy drinking. It doesn't even taste like alcohol. You could give this to a kid. Don't, though.

Pours reddish with purple hues. Lots of tart raspberry aroma with hint of wood. Raspberry flavor, tart with some oak. Fantastic beer! Thanks to richlikebeer.

trapped (907) - New York City, TURKEY - NOV 26, 2014
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 (1123) - 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.

caesar (5324) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X, small sample, thanks all for sharing! Cloudy ruby color, short head. Aroma is very fruity of raspberry, slight tart, some marzipan, mashed apples. Lot sweeter than I expected in taste, slight tartness only. Decent beer.

dEnk (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle @ ZZTX. Aroma is huge raspberry, other red fruits, light malt note, some artificial sweetness. Flavour is candy, red fruits, raspberry artifical sweetener. Nice, but I don’t get the hype.
