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.

A: Pours a purple, brown-reddish color with a frothy, off-white-pinkish head. The retention is certainly there and holds on for a bit, while the lacing is only delicate

S: There is no doubting the raspberries or the tartness in this treat. Although, notes of blackberries, cranberries, cherries, strawberries, and oak can be identified in there as well

T: Sweet, sour, tart, and a little bitterness complement the notes: raspberries, blackberries, cranberries, cherries, and strawberries

M: Medium (bubbly) carbonation and a light (crisp) body

O: Extremely refreshing and drinkable

There isn't a way that I can see on this site to log in a flawed or spoiled beer, so my rating may not make much sense.

On tap...beer was "corked" (TCA) contaminated. Nose was soggy cardboard. You still got nice tart fruit in the mouth, but the smell was a deal killer. I will revisit with two bombers that I just bought.

FWIW, it would be helpful for beer drinkers to log flaws. That would help establish patterns among producers/distribution chains..

This has an enormous raspberry nose. After the pour I can smell raspberries with the glass sitting on the table a couple of feet away. It pours a raspberry red with a quickly dissipating pink tinted white cap. The palate is all raspberries with the light malt way in the background, starting with a light sweetness and the finishing lemony tart. The texture is very foamy - its highly carbonated but it is not harsh. It is just on the edge of Bartle's and James territory but it manages to step back from the precipice of falling into raspberry soda territory.

Way to sweet. Like drinking the syrup for a snow cone. I have no idea how this is so highly rated

Deserves it rating. Outstanding, but of a particular niche. Doesn't really register as beer at all; drinks more like a cider, or even just fruit juice. The alcohol's so low it's practically invisible. Perfect fare for a picnic, or a kid's birthday party. If in the mood, it's heaven. But you gotta be in the mood.

Tastes like real fresh raspberries, not raspberry candy like Rubaeus or rasberry cough syrup like Raspberry Eisbock. Once I got past the fact that it tastes nothing like beer, it was very enjoyable. Very sweet but with enough sour to balance. If someone told me it was raspberry soda I'd have believed them.

Extremely carbonated, overly fruity, and lower than desired alcohol content. Overall this was underwhelming

Similar to Strawberry Rhubarb, I just don't get the hype around this beer. Overly sweet, not much tart and very syrupy. Not my style of beer, just feel like sugar overtook any other flavor.
