Notes/Commercial Description:
Treat yourself to a rare delight. 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.

Poured into a tulip. Thanks to alcstradamus for this one.

4.5 A: Clear somewhere between ruby red and burgundy color. Two fingers of ever so slightly pink frothy head. Pretty good retention and moderate lacing.

4.0 S: Wow, the raspberries! Tart raspberries totally dominate the nose and don't allow for any other aromas to be perceived other than a general vinousness. Of course, I have no problem with this since raspberries smell great.

5.0 T: Wow again. Totally wasn't expecting it to be so full bodied and flavorful. Most fruit beers are scant on the fruit and make what tastes like a watered down beer mixed with a watered down fruit juice. Not this one! Whether justified or not, I really like Lindemans Framboise and this is in several ways a bigger, bolder version of that. Raspberries are pretty much the sole flavor and give only a mild tartness. Loads of residual sweetness, which could contribute to a low level of perceived tartness.

5.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation is spritzy and dances on the tongue. Somewhat sticky, but super smooth.

5.0 D: I really like it. I have another bottle in the cellar that I'm tempted to open up, but I must resist. Gotta share. The people of Pittsburgh need to know about this one.

A- Dark amber in color, maybe better described as raisin-like or like red apple skin. The brew has a fizzy head that dissipates into lacy film. It has a cloudy appearance.

S- Dark fruit and tartness. Very cider-like. There's an earthy spice and undertone to it.

T- Tart raspberries, green apple, apple cider, earthy spice. Almost getting something chocolate-like as well as nuts.

M- Light and effervescent but still retaining creaminess and some nuttiness. Slightly sweet coupled with a tartness that is measured and tasteful and not close to sour.

This is simply an incredible fruit beer. I kept getting so much more than fruit on my palate and really found myself enjoying it more and more as it warmed.
