Finally getting around to reviewing this, as my wife is jonesing for it. Cant say i blame her, as this is one of my all time favorites.
Looks good, the red ale displays a hint of amber in the NG flute. A one finger reddish tinted head was prsent after the pour but had faded to leave a tin collar.
Raspberry. Inviting aroma of fresh, whole raspberries, at the peak of their ripeness. No surprise there. A touch of funk, as well as hints of pale malts. No noticeable hops. This is all about the raspberry, which happens to be one of my favorite berries...
Yummy funked up raspberries, nice and tart. There is a touch of vanilla and some hints of grain. This is perhaps the ultimate celebration of the raspberry.
Crisp and tart beer that is all about the raspberry. Not quite medium bodied. Well attentuated, this is tart, although there are residual hints of sweetness.
Dues to its tartness this is pretty drinkable. Makes for a great desert all by itself, but would certainly pair well with anything chocolate, especially of the darker varieties. Could also make a killer chocolate desert with this tasty brew, i may have to try this someday. This is the beer for fans of raspberry and a touch of funk.

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.
