4.74/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: strong ruby color tending towards brown. A finger of a tannish head that fades fairly quickly but still leaves a bit behind and a sticky lacing on the sides. Opaque but with quite a sparkle with light.
Smell:tons of raspberries. Very fresh berries with just a hint of tartness. Little to no malty character.
Taste: again the taste is dominated by raspberries but what else would you expect. They are quite juicy and just a little tart. Maybe some wheat characteristics but perhaps not enough to pick up without knowing it's there.
Mouthfeel: very light. And certainly refreshing. Good balance between sweet and tart. Just a little stickiness but not enough to take much away
Overall: a wonderfully refreshing beer. I just tried my first new glarus beer this week and I already can't get enough. This one is easily the best purely fruity beer I have had. Although I don't think it's perfect, there isn't much to change to get it there

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.
