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.

Served in the 750 mL bottle, into a St. Bernardus goblet. The color is a grape juice purple, with a bubbly white head. The smell is a nice raspberry. The taste is a very strong raspberry, with a very nice sourness to it, and very well-balanced...basically a lambic taste, and a good one at that. Mouthfeel is well-carbed and very syrupy. As for drinkability, could have a lot of these!

Wow...thanks to Bighuge for this bottle. A simply amazing dessert beer, something I could share with a date or with a non-beer lover. It's a shame this doesn't make it to PA, but I'd absolutely trade for this again!

A: Ruby red with a quickly dissipating head--to nothing; mild bubbling but mostly still; looks like cranberry juice

S: tart fruits: raspberries, apples, cranberries with faint cider and vinegar; quite vinous too--hard to tell this is beer

T: Sweet with a dry finish; loads of raspberries (and perhaps cranberry flavors too); slightly tart; this is a tasty dessert beer

F: Sticky with a medium body; really sticky all over the mouth

O: For a dessert beer this is awesome but the sweetness--though not cloying--does become slightly wearing

a - poured a two-fingers thick eggshell-colored head into a tulip glass that left a thin ring throughout. the body was a dark reddish-purple color.
s - big raspberry aroma.
t - same as the aroma, nice and tart. lip-smacking good.
m - medium and slick.
o - is new glarus my favorite brewery? they might be. they knock everything out of the park and this is no exception.

bottle poured into a wine glass. pours a deep garnet/rouge with a touch of orange mixed in. a single finger of light off white head tops it off, which has poor retention and leaves no lacings.

aroma is of fresh, ripe raspberries with a very light funked note and undertones of vinous fruit.

taste is of the same raspberry note from the aroma with a distinct tartness and a light effervescence that blends into a light acidity. well put together on the palate with a finish that gives way to a more pronounced note of funk after the tartness subsides.

mouthfeel is light bodied, tart and effervescent. a touch acidic as well. wonderful on the palate.

drinkability is great. soft and pleasant, this brew will convert many sceptics to the world of better fruit beers. cheers!

750 mL green bottle with red wax. Based on the Belgian Red earlier, I was sure I knew what this was so had to share with my wife.

Pours a translucent muddy red, with a little bit of light pink head.

Nose was incredibly sweet with tons of caramel and big fruitiness. Definitely Raspberry Tart.

Flavor has a nice sweetness and a slightly bitter bready finish, though finishes uite sweet. I would've liked a little more tartness, but still fantastic.

Thick body with a ton of residual sugar. Wonder if New Glarus stops fermentation early on this one. Good carbonation.

Overall, incredibly drinkable, but the slight tartness forced us to drink a little slower than the Belgian Red.
