4.63/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance- Pours a gorgeous dark ruby red with a thin film of bubbles on the top.
Smell- It smells a little raspberry snow cone to me which is the only thing that kept it from getting a five overall. Still pleasant but not quite what I hoped for.
Taste- My worries on the nose faded right away when I tasted it. Sweet pure raspberry at first that finishes tart and dry. Delicious!
Mouthfeel- Thin and almost champagne like.
Overall- Not sure why I've never had this before being from Wisconsin but it will become a regular in the rotation

750 ml wax capped bottle poured into a tulip.
A - Tawny ruby red-brown colored, this murky beer is capped by an off-ivory-hued loose white head that topples to a ring of bubbles which leave dots of lace on the glass.
S - Devoid of any real "beer" smell, one can behold Raspberry Tart's perfumy aroma of crushed raspberries feet away. Subtle suggestions of the oak this spontaneously fermented beer is brought to maturation as the beer warms but any wild yeast aromas are nowhere to be found.
T - Heaven in a bottle, raspberry sweetness overwhelms the palate with pure, unadulterated fruit flavor, cut just in the nick of time by a tart finish for the perfect balance that keeps it from becoming cloying. It's time in the oak vessels lends delicate earthiness to compliment the fruit and undertones of spontaneous fermentation.
M - Raspberry Tart's instantaneous sweetness sticks to the palate quite forcefully but allow this beer to wander around your mouth and you'll find it's tartness perfectly balances the sweetness for a wonderful and slightly dry finish, punctuated by Wisconsin wheat, which softens the mouthfeel, rounding the spritzy Champagne-like carbonation out.
O - One of the most exceptional fruit beers from one of the world's greatest fruit beer brewers, New Glarus' Raspberry Tart is dessert in a glass; pure raspberry pleasure, starting sweet and finishing dry and tart. There is absolutely nothing else like it.
