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.

750 ml into a pint

A - Brown with amber to ruby highlights. Little bits of brown yeast and a strong mocha colored head formation. Breaks down to a film rather quickly.

S- Raspberry is the name of the game, smooth and earthy rather than bright and sweet. Nice and deep, not over the top.

T - starts off with the full on raspberry flavors, bittersweet, nice and tangy. Mid-stream gets more of the raspberry, which then finishes with the raspberry. Nothing to hind here. This one sat in the cellar for a while so it is clear this beer holds these flavors well.

M - Moderate body, light carbonation. lots of sugary sticky flavors from all the sweetness.

O/D - Hard to classify beer. If you want a raspberry beer, you've got it here - this thing does it so well that it has to surpass any of those expectations. Of course New Glarus is known by this, so the result makes sense.

Raspberry Tart pours a clear cherry red with a fizzy white head. The foam dissolves quickly leaving no lace on the glass.

The aroma is sweet and loaded with raspberry. It has a touch of cinnamon mixed in.

Each sip of this light to medium bodied beer is smooth and oily with light carbonation. The flavor is sugary sweet raspberry with some cinnamon mixed in. It's tart with a dry finish. Once gone the raspberry flavor lingers on the palate.

This beer is dessert in a glass. It's very fruity and mildly tart.
