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.

Picked up a few of these in trades at Dark Lord Day 08. Have been jonesing for Raspberry T since I had a tiny sip months before - it blew my mind then and I knew I had to acquire some! It's good to finally crack one with friends....

Pours an absurdly thick, dense blood-orange red with a deep pink head that foams up and subsides to ring the edge of my glass. Leaves some spotty uneven lacing. Looks like liquid jam. Really.

Ok. This smells absolutely unreal. Fresh picked sour raspberries and rich, lush fruit sugar explode into my nose... I feel like I'm smelling raspberry concentrate. There's a hint of noble hop and a slight sour yeast note, but 90% of this is just variations on fruity sour raspberries and sugar. I cannot believe how succulent this smells. You really just have to experience it for yourself. Exceptional is the word here.

The raspberry assault continues on into my mouth; even the slightest sip knocks your senses for a loop with distilled berry flavor, all tarted up and sexy in a deep red dress... ugh, this is stupendous -- if you like raspberries. It's intense, and shockingly only 4%. There's an upfront sugar sweetness but it soon gives way into a lovely tart sourness that finishes with a lingering fresh berry aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is pretty darn perfect for this, a little thick and sticky with a spritzy carbonation level that reminds one of fizzy cider. Goes down easy and leaves a wonderful dry berry calling card. You can drink this one cool or let it warm, it's great either way.

New Glarus has an amazing fruit beer here - one of the best I've had and I've had a few. Raspberry Tart is simply world-class and you should try it. You'll cry when the bottle is empty, but it must be done!
