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 from mscarpen, 750ml into a tulip. Thanks a ton Scott!

Dark red body with a white head, light film and some bubbles retain. Nose is just - wow. Raspberry and rhubarb jam/pie filling. Just like a friggin' pie. A bit of spicing too, but the fruit presented is just brilliant. Tastes just about the same, raspberry and rhubarb pie, light spicing, sweet raspberry juice and some pie-like notes. Gentle tartness in the finish with some peripheral spicing. Medium body, low carbonation. Raspberry hangs around for some time. Overall, brilliant - easily the best fruit beer I've ever had.

Poured from a bottle into a Goose Island chalice

A: Pours a deep ruby brown color. There is a thin pinkish tinted tan head which quickly fades.

S: Lush notes of raspberry are complemented by a caramel sweetness. A mild tart scent is present.

T: Very strong raspberry flavor. Incredibly sweet and sugary. A strong tart finish makes the all the sweet flavor more palatable. There is a warm malt flavor in the background that provides some caramel and bread notes.

M: Medium bodied but the syrup character makes it feel pretty full. Mild carbonation but fairly effervescent.

O: A good fruit beer. Borders on cloyingly sweet and fruity but the solid tart flavor is its saving grace.

Thanks to whoever shared this at NoSignsOfPain's bday party

Look: Pours a amber red color with a 1/4 inch pinkish head and ok retention

Smell: Raspberries and more raspberries with a slight sourness

Taste: For me this is where it went wrong. The flavor is overpowering with raspberries and they seem artificial. There is a slight tartness and sourness that accompany the raspberries

Mouthfeel: Just over a thin body and mild carbonation and it felt very syrupy to me and left a stickiness in my mouth that I didnt really care for

Overall: This drinks more like a fruit juice then a beer. This is not what I want when I want to drink a beer sorry but this one just doesnt do it for me

Bottle to tulip glass.

A - Medium to ark amber with a big reddish glow. One finger of dirty white head.

S - Very tart up front. Raspberry puree and a slight pie-crust-like malt sweetness that is similar to Wisconsin Belgian Red.

T - Great mix of sweet and tart with a massive raspberry puree flavor up front. Sweet bready malts provide a second layer of flavour and an almost pie-like flavour similar to but not quite as big as Wisconsin Belgian Red.

M - Medium body, very creamy. Light carbonation. Great mouth feel.

Thanks to liamt07 for sharing this.

Amber red colour with about a finger of white head, decent retention with a bit of lace on the glass. Smell is full of jammy raspberry, some malt a little bit of grainy yeast is also encountered, lots of tart fruity scents take over. Taste is all raspberry, tart and just on the edge of full blown sour, malt mixes in as well imparting flavours of a raspberry tea almost, you can almost taste the grainy raspberry its just that real, lightly funky towards the end of the glass. Medium carbonation, sharp dry feel with a medium body. Really, really good stuff, the fact that this tastes like real handpicked raspberries is outstanding, something I will definitely seek out to have again.

Served in a weizen glass on 6/20/12. Celebration for completing one of my last exams.

A - Slightly opaque creamy pink with 2 finger bubbly rose pink head with excellent retention and good lacing.

S - Raspberry, duh. And a bit of green apple, yeast funk, mint.

T - The sweet raspberries hit the front palate immediately and then a touch of sour, yeasty funk and green apples comes to follow. A bit a breadiness and wheat at the finish, but this is just a showcase of the raspberries.

M - Medium-light body, with high effervescent carbonation with a creaminess.

O - Reminds me quite a bit of the Belgian Red from New Glarus but substitute raspberries for the cherries. These beers are equals in my opinion and I really enjoy the how damn fruity this beer is yet still maintaining a semblance of a beer character.
