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.

Thanks for opening this one, NoSignsOfPain!

Dark, but clear magenta with a pillowy, cloudy light pink head that sticks around for quite some time. Eventually. once it diminishes, it leaves the glass a bit sticky and oily with residue, but not much lace in the true sense of the word.

Incredible aroma, and certainly the hallmark of this beer. The aroma is simply: fresh, vibrant, juicy raspberries. There's little else leftover other than the raspberries, but, nothing is missed. It's incredible.

The flavor too has a lot of genuine, fresh raspberry flavor, though there's also an incredible sweetness, coming off as syrupy just a bit. If this were just a touch more bitter and less sweet, it'd really be a world beater. As it stands, it's a very sweet, juicy, nearly syrupy raspberry ale.

Thin to medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation. Perhaps, this beer would come off as less sweet if the carbonation was higher.

A true ode to the raspberry, though I wish it were just a bit less sweet.

Perfectly clear, ruby-colored ale with a light pink head supported by lazy carbonation. The head doesn't last too long but sticks around as a film.

The smell is tart raspberry and Brett yeast and the flavor matches. Since it's difficult for me to get my hands on this beer I wanted to savor it and drink it slowly...yeah, that didn't happen. I wound up gulping it and it didn't last that long.

This is simply the best raspberry beer brewed in the US with all deference to Founder's Blushing Monk. Many Belgian breweries would be proud to call this their product. Not quite as good as Cantillon, but on par with Drei Fonteinen and Boon.

A really nice fruit beer, probably the best out there. Bright red pour with plenty of raspberry aroma. The initial taste is very tart but then it is just raspberry throughout. It seems like a mix between a wine and a beer. Very good! Another great beer from New Glarus.

Ruby red with a very thin head. Ultra clear and no carbonation visible

Fresh raspberries and a thick puree aroma. Very sweet and nit very dimensional

Follows the aroma with a huge juicy raspberry flavor, fresh off the vine flavor. Other tastes of jam and sweet preservatives. Raspberry all the way through

Medium to light body that finishes dry and aftertaste doesn't last long. Extremely drinkable

One of the best fruit beers ive had if not the best example of use of raspberry

Big thanks to Tewaris for hooking me up with this bottle! I opened this bottle and immediately the room filled with the sweet smell of raspberries. The body of this beer is clear dark red, thousands of bubbles rise up to form a champaign like head. A purple tinted head rises to two fingers before quickly settling to just a ring, leaving behind no lacing. The only way to describe the nose and taste of this is raspberries. On the label they claim to use wheat and hops, but all I can detect is the sweet sweet berries. Mouthfeel is very lively with carbonation, like a champaign or sparkling wine. Mouth puckering tartness is very well balanced by the sweetness. Don't know what else to say, other than this is worth seeking out.
