A nice 750ml bottle with the top half dipped in wax. Served in a standard flute glass.
A - Cloudy bood red color reminiscent of champagne with a nice inch and a half fizzy head that quickly dissolves into a nice lace.
S - Raspberrys are naturally the first thing that overwhelm your senses. The beer is very sweet and has a nice tartness to it. There was a subtle floral hint to it.
T - Raspberries hit you at first and they hit you strong. However its not really sour at all. Its definatly a sweet beer with a nice tart finish to it. But it wakes up all of your taste buds especially in the back of your mouth.
M - Fizzy like champagne that starts sweet and finishes nice and tart. The alcohol is almost un-noticable until the very end.
Goes great with cheesecake in my opinion and definatly one of my favorite raspberry beers.

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.
