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.

a very special beer. used this instead of champaigne last night to bring in the new year. thanks to my girlfriend for hooking this up for me! the much anticipated pour was a red tainted pale brown color, mostly clear, with a ton of rising bubbles and a persistent finger or two of fizz. the nose takes you by surprise. its potently fresh raspberries, juicy and lush and overripe. there is also a medium toast malt underneath that gives this one a little more substance than perhaps the belgian red has, which i certianly appreciate. flavor too is heavenly raspberries, this brings me to late summer in the woods picking huge berries and stuffing my face growing up. some tartish yeast in here too adds a slight puckery element to balance the sweetness of the fruit. finish is perfect mix of sweet and tart, with sweet probably just getting the edge. the feel was interesting. its insanely carbonated, much like the champaigne we were replacing with this brew. body is light but not too too light, and the alcohol is of course super low, but to me this wasnt super drinkable. i think the sweetness combined with all the bubbles made it more of a slow sipper, and when we finished the bottle, i had definitely had enough of this. that said though, this is a rare treat to be savored and shared. new glarus has now given me two of the best fruit beers in the known world, so thanks for that!

A: Slightly cloudy, deep red/raspberry color. Small amount of white head.

S: RASPBERRY! ...with hints of strawberry.

T: Again, RASPBERRY! The name says it all, Raspberry Tart! A perfect fully flavored fruit beer. It's pretty intense with a very pleasant lingering aftertaste.

M: Very smooth medium bodied "fizz".

My wife and I actually prefer this to the New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red. I think it's probably the edgy tartness that does it for us. This is an amazing beer full of flavor, tartness, and sweetness.

Poured from the 25 ounce capped bottle into wine glasses with Christmas dinner.

Pours deep crimson maroon with thick white foam. Remains at a low level after settling, but still there. Deep fruity smell, but malty too. Tart raspberry flavor holds throughout. Smooth and tart. Light bodied, ends puckering. Sour. Really damn good.

New Glarus really nails this style, in a big way.

Brown glass bottle with waxed over pressure cap served into a Guinness goblet in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Expectations are through the roof given the brewery.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Side-poured as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger beige-khaki colour head of good cream and thickness, and great retention. Body colour is a semitransparent translucent vibrant ruby-amber. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Tart raspberry, heavy fruit esters, pale malts, hints of cranberry, and hints of floral ester hops. An above average strength aroma.

T: Delightful tart sugary raspberry, great estery malts, and heavy sugary notes. Delightful clean fruit notes. Impeccably balanced. Incredibly well built. Diverse and evocative fruit.

Mf: Smooth, wet, perfectly carbonated, and featuring ideal thickness. Complements the flavour pretty well.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. Hides its ABV well. I'd definitely have this again. Lives up to the hype. Another fantastic brew from New Glarus. Incredible.

Dark amber color with a good, creamy cap. Nice raspberry aroma! And really good flavor. I really like that this is only 4% as I am able to enjoy a lot of it without filling up or getting too buzzed. It’s oh-so drinkable with its really nice raspberry flavor, held up with adequate malt. Good body/carbonation. Very enjoyable.
