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.

750ml into a snifter.

A: Burgundy body with a small cream-colored head.

S: Sweet raspberry flesh, very light acidity. Lots of fruity sugar.

T: Juicy. somewhat syrupy raspberry, light malty spice. Very sweet.

M: Between light and medium-bodied, frothy carbonation.

O: While I like this a bit better than Wisconsin Belgian Red, it's still a bit too syrupy-sweet for me, especially for being called "Raspberry Tart."

Was somewhat underwhelmed by this beer. Had it at a bottle-share and loved it, so I traded for it in order to try again. Second time around, was just not happy. Way too sour/vinegary, with little to no raspberry (tart) sweetness. Would like to try one more time just to see if I got a bad batch, otherwise I'll pass on this beer.

750 ml bottle, generously shared at the Peg's tasting on 3/8/13.

A- Pours a clear reddish color, topped with a thin white head.

S- Just loads of vibrant raspberry aroma, which has both a fresh, raspberry juice character as well as dryer raspberry skins. Smells delicious.

T- Similar to the aroma, lots of fresh, tasty raspberries, there's also some nice tartness to it, as well as some sugary sweetness towards the back which I would have liked a bit less of.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth, dry feel, sort of sticky.

O- A solid fruit beer, the raspberry aroma and flavor and the tartness are really nice, but it loses a few points with me just on sweetness.
