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.

4.51/5  rDev +3.4%

Appearance: Such a beautiful red color. Edges have a slight brown color. Light bubbly head with a slight pink color which was present throughout. Average lacing stuck on the glass while drinking. Slightly above average carbonation throughout.

Smell: Very tart, a little over the top. There is also a funky sourness on the undertones of this aroma. Bright raspberry character carries the body of the aroma.

Taste: Wow this blew me away. A sweet sugary front brings you in right away. The body is a wonderfully rounded raspberry flavor with a perfectly balanced sourness. The sweetness/sugary tones come in on the back end and leave a light lacing on the palette. The flavors stick around long after drinking, with a sourness, raspberry, and very light malt character. Truly wonderful.

Mouthfeel: Dry front which smoothes out and leaves a sugary feeling on the palette.

Overall: This beer is absolutely outstanding. I am not a fan of sweet/sugary things in any respect, so this beer for me is a perfect balance on outstanding beer qualities with all the fruit characteristics one could ask for. This is no doubt the best beer I've ever had from New Glarus, and it seems their absolute strength seems to be this style. Can't wait to have more.

A: Pours a clear mahogany with ruby tints and two fingers of khaki head that recedes into a thin cap with no lacing.

S: Nose is fruit raspberry but some interesting mix of flavors. Wooden and oak, and vanilla too.

T: Very sweet and almost creamy. Does not taste like a beer and you can't taste any traces of alcohol.

M: Light body, dry, almost no booze, loads of flavor

O: Another very solid beer from New Glarus. I got to try this alongside Wisconsin Red which I liked a little more but this one is amazing too.

Served in a weizen glass on 6/20/12. Celebration for completing one of my last exams.

A - Slightly opaque creamy pink with 2 finger bubbly rose pink head with excellent retention and good lacing.

S - Raspberry, duh. And a bit of green apple, yeast funk, mint.

T - The sweet raspberries hit the front palate immediately and then a touch of sour, yeasty funk and green apples comes to follow. A bit a breadiness and wheat at the finish, but this is just a showcase of the raspberries.

M - Medium-light body, with high effervescent carbonation with a creaminess.

O - Reminds me quite a bit of the Belgian Red from New Glarus but substitute raspberries for the cherries. These beers are equals in my opinion and I really enjoy the how damn fruity this beer is yet still maintaining a semblance of a beer character.
