Received bottle as a gift for the birth of my son from a generous trader up north. (Cheers!)
Poured from 750ml bottle into tall pilsner glass.
Aroma: Mouth-watering jammy raspberry. A very faint lemony tartness. Aaaand more raspberry. Pretty straightforward. Raspberry city!
Appearance: Excellent reddish-purple body with nice clarity. One finger of tan-pink head, which clings to the side of the glass.
Flavor: Bright, fruity raspberry. Sweetness on the front, and tartness on the back end. EXTREMELY well-balanced, refreshing, and sessionable. Not cloyingly sweet like some more widely-available raspberry lambics.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, high carbonation. Medium-full mouthfeel. Clean finish.
Overall: Having enjoyed NG's Wisconsin Belgian Red (Cherry) recently, I was interested in comparing the two. While raspberry tart seems to receive more acclaim than Red, my wife and I agreed that we liked Red better--but only by a hair. Tart is very well-done, and is one to get your hands on!

This beer pours a lighter bodied bright bright red in color with a dirty pink head that turns into lacing around the glass. It smells and tastes of syrupy sweet and creamy raspberries. It's like a smoother version of the Lindeman's Framboise. There is a lot of jam and sugar. The carbonation stimulates all of your taste buds and teases it like you're going to experience some tartness but really all you get is sweetness. It's ok, just a lot of sugar. It's definitely nowhere near Blushing Monk territory. It drinks light with a good amount of carbonation that really fits the beer well. This is a dessert beer first and foremost and would pair very well with chocolates or chocolate cake. By itself, it's a little much.

A - Poured into a flute the brew's colors transition from those of apple juice to peach to cider and then at the top a translucent reddish brown. Very nice looking body with a head that started out around a half inch tall and is left to leave only the ring at the glass line with wisps scattered and spiraling.
S - It smells of a tart apple and grape combination. Very nice and very inviting.
T - Moderately tart without a real strong presence of the raspberry, by which I'm impressed. This is a very well done flavor grouping and nothing really overwhelms. The only thing keeping this from passing the "good" mark is the moderate tart flavor, I would appreciate a bit more.
M - Very mildly abrasive and quite dry in the finish.
~ This is a great dessert brew with its tart and light character. I would and have recommend this beer to my friends.

Shared with my wife. Poured into my Bruery snifter.
A: Wonderfull raspberry red. Some bubbly reddish/white head.
S: Tons of fresh raspberries.
T: Just like the smell. Fresh, sweet raspberries. Exactly as expected.
M: Bubbly and refreshing. A lot like a sparkling champagne.
O: One of the best fruit beers out there. Hopefully one day NG will distribute outside of WI.

Bottle into New Belgium snifter
A: Deep red, almost crimson in color. 1.5 fingernail head on gentle pour.
S: Sweet, fresh raspberry field. It reminds me of growing up and picking raspberries in our backyard. I love when olfaction and memory click; this is a beautiful thing.
T: Succulent, fresh raspberry through and through. Start to finish that’s all I get here. Very sweet. I had to find the tartness, but that aspect of this experience was fun.
M: Clean and crisp. I sipped this over and over again looking for raspberry seeds, but couldn’t find any. Medium carbonation.
O: Smooth, tasty, and just plain excellent. You get what you expect here – nothing else. Raspberries start to finish and it is very clean. Honestly, I could not drink more than an 8 oz. pour, but the wife enjoys this immensely. As such, going forward, I’ll just indulge another tasty treat while she enjoys this. Overall, a great beer though...well done!
