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.

Nice looking, dark red beer with a tan/pink head. The aroma and the taste are very sweet. This beer definitely has much more sweetness from the raspberries than tartness. The flavor has a fair bit of complexity to it, but to me it tastes just as much like juice as it does beer.

I was really looking forward to this one, but I was expecting it to be a sour. It is not really sour at all. However, I would definitely recommend it to anyone that likes the sweet, fruit lambics.

750ml bottle into a HF wine glass. Huge thanks to yamar68 for this one!

A - Pours a deep dark red/violet hue that is clear but lets little light through. Looks very wine like. Two fingers of dense tan/pink stained foam forms but settles into some thin patching. Swirling does generate an impressive new layer of foam and leaves behind some lacing. This might be a fruit beer, but it is not thin in the least bit.

S - Raspberry jam. That's it. Obviously its pretty one dimensional, but when that lone dimension is amazingly ripe and tart raspberries its's pretty acceptable. Oh how I love this aroma.

T - Tart and sweet raspberries with just a touch of wheat which is found in the other NG fruit beers. The finish is ever so slightly acidic. It gets to be a bit much after a while but it absolutely nails the raspberry flavor. Mouth feel is thick and syrupy with moderate carbonation.

O - New Glarus really impresses me with these fruit beers. This is just the most honestly raspberry forward thing I've have ever had that wasn't an actual raspberry. Not as exciting as Serendipity but just as wonderful as the Belgian Red.
