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.

The first that I've been able to try from New Glarus. Thanks to Lucy S. for this one.

I was surprised when I first poured this into a champagne flute, as recommended on the bottle. It poured a nice dark red color and looked very thick and viscous, almost like a homemade fruit juice or V8. Not much head.

The smell was full of fresh raspberries. None of the fake raspeberries here but almost like raspberry preserves.

The raspberries really hit you up front with the first sip. Not cloyingly sweet at all though. It really is the right amount of sweetness. Nice spritzy and leads to a rather full mouthfeel. Fairly tart, but not overly so. Although it has some characteristics of a flemish sour, it definitely is not a sour beer. Overall a very good beer. I'm not a big fruit beer person, but I could drink this regularly. It would pair well with a slice of chocolate cheesecake.
