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.

750mL thanks to my secret Santa (I think). Whoa holy s*** this is good. I am not a giant fan of the Belgian Red but I know it is hard for NG to come out with a beer that is not stellar. What an outstanding fruit beer that is neither 10%+ nor a lambic.

Pours a clear deep purple to ruby with a towering, thick, creamy, slightly pink head that has excellent retention and good lace. Aroma is incredible: fresh raspberries, pithy raspberry, seedy raspberry preserves, really so rich and bright with fresh fruitiness. No candy sugar, no sticky sweetness. Taste is so brilliant: it is malty, creamy, not buttery, with so much fresh raspberry that brings out a naturally tartness that is not framboise sour. No pedio, lacto, acedic acid. No lambic character. But somehow is perfectly balanced between sour berries and sweet malt. Lively, bubbly tart on the palate that finishes super quick making you beg for more. It is not massively complex, but it is a beer that I will crave from now on every day. Destroys all fruit beer. 8/10/2010 8/5/8/5/15=4.1

750mL. Pour is perfect- a clear jewel black ruby with a massive pinkish beige head. Huge retention and wispy, gorgeous delicate lace abounds across the raster tulip. Nose is seedy raspberry smoothie. Taste....wow. So much lactic sourness, seedy raspberry, sweet raspberry smoothie. Palate is ultra silky with a long lactic finish. Mild spice and sharp sting. Perfect blend of sweet and sour. Incredible raspberry character. Impossible for any organic lifeform to not thoroughly enjoy this. Whoa. 11/9/2011 8/5/9/5/17=4.4

Poured from a waxed 750 ml bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber ruby red with a lot of bubbles sticking around the glass. About two fingers of off white head that fade into a thin patchy layer. Lacing is fairly light.

Smell: As expected a big aroma of raspberries. Sweet raspberry with a moderate tartness. Hints of yeast, biscuit, and caramel malt. Light hints of oak and vanilla. Some brown sugar. Light presence of earthy hops. Fairly jammy and slightly sour. Seems like a simple straight ahead aroma but it is pretty good.

Taste: Like the aroma hints, but even better. A huge taste of raspberry fruit juices that is the dominate note. Some soft bready malts with hints of caramel and biscuit. Also a light taste of oak and vanilla along with some brown sugar . Light earthy hop presence in the background. Tastes sweet but it isn't overly syrupy or cloying. The sweetness, syrup, and sourness is kept in check pretty well. Really nice fruity jam taste. Nothing tastes artificial.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Chewy, juicy, and slightly sticky and syrupy.

Overall: A really great fruit beer. Huge real fruit flavor and the sweetness and tartness isn't overbearing. Has a decent body to it so it isn't really a quick drinker. Take the time to enjoy the raspberry.

This is an awesome beer and a great Raspberry flavor. The smell of this thing is huge. It smells like a bowl of fresh picked raspberries. Not sure how true but someone at the Brewery stated that the ratio amounts to 1 pound of raspberries per beer, The taste is just as awesome and perfect for dessert or simpling a refreshing beer when needed. I will definately be looking for this again and possibly having family send me more to the west Coast.

Both on tap and bottle were equally amazing.
