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.

Poured from a 750ml bomber into a stemmed tulip glass and shared with friends.
Thanks to Gotti311 for the bottle!

Poured a rich reddish brown color with a short tannish/pink head. The nose and taste of this beer is fantastic and mouthwatering. There is some toasted malt and bread in there, but the raspberries are truly the star and dominate all aspects of the brew. There is a hint of acid and some mild hop spiciness to counterbalance some of the sweetness. The fruit is the true star and this beer is just dripping overripe, luscious raspberries.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750 mL bottle purchased at the brewery, unknown brewing/packaging date but likely 2014; poured into their flute-ish pint glass (obtained at the brewery); drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - amber-red coloration; high clarity (can both read and see through); initial frothy, khaki head settles into a subtle glass lacing; small carbonation bubbles pouring off the bottom of the glass; moderate alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - rasberry, subtle tartness, no hops, no malts, no yeast

T: 17/20 - on the front of the tongue, there is lithe bitterness; this is immediately overtaken by large rasberry and tart notes; very little alcohol or yeast flavors on the back end but finishes semi-sweet and inviting

M: 4/5 - high carbonation, low-to-moderate body, refreshing carbonation

T: 9/10 - the most tart of the fruit/vegetable NG beers but subtle at best - the raspberries still steal the show; for $9.25/750 mL bottle at the brewery, this is a total steal that is recommends for trade if not in WI

TOTAL - 42/50

This is a treat.. If we're going directly based on the fruit beer category, this one takes one of the top 3 prizes.
Pours a vibrant dark burgundy with a pink/tan cross head.
The smell of fresh raspberries permeates from the bottles as it pours into the glass.
The taste matches the smell scent for sip. Sweet, fresh fruit. Tart, then sweet again.
A low alcohol beer, but one to appreciate because of the pure artisanship that goes into each bottle.
