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.

Thankyou again to BDEE for this one.

Poured into my lindemans stange. Left a generous two finger eggshell colored heading,tremendous lacing left behind until the last drop not thick but nice and bubbly. Clear and mahogany in color with a rubish tint to it.

Smell amazingly enough is raspberries , raspberries and more raspberries. Excellent tartness with just an extremely fresh fruit aroma.

Taste reminds of pureed raspberry slush. Tartness fits right in after the initial raspberry blast along with a slight touch of sugary alcohol. Very subtle soft grains in the finish.

Mouth is medium bodied, tremendous bubbley,fizzy action on the tongue.

This sets the bar as to what a fruit and, or raspberry beer should taste like. My first beer from New Glarus and I am very impressed.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip. Huge thanks to storminspank for this one.

A: Nice dark ruby red, with good clarity. One and a half finger slightly pink head with decent retention and lacing.

S: Slightly funky sour raspberries. Touches of sweetness.

T: Sweet raspberries upfront that moves to tart and then sour in the middle. Sweetness comes back in the finish, with a buttery flavor that is not unpleasant at all.

M: Light body. Medium carbonation. Crisp. Buttery slick.

O: A very delicious beer. Sweet, tart, funk, and sour blend nicely.

Poured a glorious ruby red with a 1 finger tan head that goes quickly.

Smell is great, it is exactly what you would think it would be, Rasberry, sourness, sweetness.

Taste is unreal tons of rasberry, a good sourness or tartness I guess. That is about it not in a bad way the flavors are so big that is all you need!

Mouthfeel is sharp at first but becomes really sticky at the end.

Well I have had this before but being in WI you just never think about reviewing it because it is always around. It is always around because it is awesome. We here in WI are really blessed to access to the best fruit beers on the planet and they are avaliable all the time!

A - Pours a opaque ruby with a touch of brown in it and a thin finger of pinkish bubbly head. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind a little head.

S - Aroma is full of lots of fresh sweet raspberries. There is a bit of tartness with a bit of sweet caramel as well.

T - Starts off with lots of sweet and tart raspberry flavor with a bit of sourness and a bit of other berries. Through the middle, a touch of caramel comes through with some more fresh fruit flavor. The finish is a mix of tart and lightly sour fresh raspberry with a hint of yeast.

M - Medium bodied with fairly mild carbonation. Very smooth with a tart and dry finish.

D - Very drinkable. The raspberry flavor is very fresh and rich and works so well in the beer. The strong tartness is excellent as well.

Bottle poured into Boulevard tulip glasses. Pours a very dark burnt orange with an off white head of about half an inch. The smell is sour, sweet, with a nose of dark fruit. The taste is crazy good. The raspberries shine through tremendously. Slightly sour with sweetness that pulls through at the end. The finish is strong but short. The mouthfeel is perfect with the right amount of effervescence and viscousness. Overall this is virtually a perfect beer of this type and I will for sure be searching this out again without question.

A huge thanks to my friend Traci for getting this for me. Opened this over the weekend and shared it with a few close friends. The beer poured out as a nice clear looking ruby red color with a cream colored head on top. The smell of the beer floods the nose with a rush of fresh picked raspberries. There isn't too much else on the nose except for a light amount of tart funk, very light though and almost unnoticeable. The taste of the beer is sweet, it's loaded with raspberry flavors that dance on your taste buds leaving behind a tingling tartness behind. The beer finishes dry leaving you ready for the next sip. The mouthfeel of the beer is medium bodied with a soft carbonation to it. Overall this is pretty much exactly what I was hoping for with this beer, I would enjoy this one over and over again. Very glad I got to have this and hope to have it again someday.

Generally impressive beer. Well, if you enjoy fruit beers. Loved the appearance with its ruby red hue and nice foamy head. Smelled delicious and had tons of flavor!  The only knock for me was that it got pretty heavy after awhile due to the sweetness and tartness. I recommend this desert beer, but suggest you have someone else to share it with. Overall I liked this a lot better than the cherry ale New Glarus makes.
