750 mL bottle courtesy of Zimmerbloke. Thanks dude!
A- Dark ruby red with about an inch of pinkish head. Pretty good retention, with lots of bubble floating to the surface.
S- Very nice. Smells like a big bowl of fresh, juicy raspberry. Also, a slight spice note reminds me of raspberry iced tea.
T- Very fruity, with big raspberry taste and a touch of cracker-like malt to hold everything together. Reminds me of its brother, Wisconsin Belgian Red, but with a much more tart bite.
M- Very good carbonation and a light, silky mouthfeel.
D- Very high, this stuff goes down like water, but with much more flavor. Very refreshing. Perfect for a nice warm day outside or for following a nice meal paired with chocolate or by itself.
I'm so glad I was able to try this and Wisconsin Belgian Red, as they have really opened my eyes to the potential of fruit beers. Two truly spectacular brews from New Glarus.

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.
