Brown glass bottle with waxed over pressure cap served into a Guinness goblet in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Expectations are through the roof given the brewery.
Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured as no carbonation issues are anticipated.
A: Pours a two finger beige-khaki colour head of good cream and thickness, and great retention. Body colour is a semitransparent translucent vibrant ruby-amber. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Sm: Tart raspberry, heavy fruit esters, pale malts, hints of cranberry, and hints of floral ester hops. An above average strength aroma.
T: Delightful tart sugary raspberry, great estery malts, and heavy sugary notes. Delightful clean fruit notes. Impeccably balanced. Incredibly well built. Diverse and evocative fruit.
Mf: Smooth, wet, perfectly carbonated, and featuring ideal thickness. Complements the flavour pretty well.
Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. Hides its ABV well. I'd definitely have this again. Lives up to the hype. Another fantastic brew from New Glarus. Incredible.

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.
