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.

Pours a nice big head (fills the flute and almost goes flows over) that doesn't go away and leaves a rock solid lacing. The color is a beautiful clear dark red/purplish color. The smell is just like a fresh raspberry bush-only better! Really good smell of sweet/tart raspberries that balance perfectly! The taste is a burst of great flavor and it doesn't have the base feel that is malty, I can sense it's still there, but I have to look. The mouthfeel is smooth, smooth and there's nothing offensive about it. Overall I wish every single bottle of Raspberry Tart was this good, I just had to re-review it it was sooo good.

Stored colder than my beer fridge and poured into champagne flutes. Effervescent with a thick head that dissipates quickly. Great lacing and slight head retention. Clear, but dark red. Not that it needs mentioning, but fruity aromas and sweet, light crisp taste with a tart finish. An easy drinker and pairs perfectly with brunch! Will definitely revisit this classic.
