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.

Bottle - obtained through a trade.

Poured into Russian River Tulip

A: Half a finger head, Pretty decent amount of lacing, transparent dark ruby color (purplish, reddish, brown).

S: Raspberry and Raspberry Jam! It smells quite good.

T: Man.... amazing. Crisp, tart, sweet (but not too sweet), starts of sweeter then finishes with sweet tartness.

M: Just the right amount of carbonation, light body, near perfect!

O: I am going to be seeking for more of this and looking forward to trying the Belgian Red soon.

750 ml bottle. This beer pours out a thickish looking deep purple. The bubbly head fades quickly. Big raspberry aroma. Syrupy raspberry flavor. The raspberries coat the mouth and becomes cloying. Still, the flavor is not artificial, so although it's a bit much, it's still tasty. I do not find this beer to be very drinkable. One glass is plenty. As far as fruit beers go, this is pretty good, but it does not seem much like beer. I prefer the Wisconsin Belgian Red.

New Glarus really knows how to do these fruit beers. They should talk to Dogfishhead about how to improve Fort.
Anyway, pours out a dense purple and blood red color, with a small pink head. Nose is raspberry jam and malts. Taste is wonderful very sweet zesty wild raspberry pie, with dense honey flavors and almost a spicy zing to it. Malts come through, and it ends up almost like a mead. Mouthfeel is food. Drinkability is fantastic, it's like a sessionable sweet beer.

Thanks to beerwolf77 for the bomber! I think I will give a slight edge to the Belgian Red, even though I generally like raspberry more.

A: Pours a pale reddish pink color with an off white head. Retention is poor and lots of carbonation bubbles are visible indicating that there will be solid carbonation.

S: Fresh (I emphasize fresh) raspberries- completely ripe and not artificial. Definitely more twangy and tart than I was expecting. Hops and malts play virtually no role in the nose.

T: Hops and malts are hardly noticeable, although the malts provide a little flavor to compliment the intense attack of fresh raspberry. Tart, almost a little sour. Not quite as sweet as the Belgian Red, so the tartness is pretty much unchecked.

MF/D: Fizzly carbonation, tart, puckering finish.

I prefer the Belgian Red

Pours a dark, ruby-red color with a tan head. Head falls to nothing with the very thinnest of lacing.

Aroma is all raspberry tartness. Actually all I smell is fruit.

Big, tart raspberry taste. Raspberry flavor is lovely and it is very, very tart. Malt taste in the finish.

Medium bodied, rather smooth and low carbonation in the mouth.

Good stuff. Extremely tart but quite delicious.
