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.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: strong ruby color tending towards brown. A finger of a tannish head that fades fairly quickly but still leaves a bit behind and a sticky lacing on the sides. Opaque but with quite a sparkle with light.

Smell:tons of raspberries. Very fresh berries with just a hint of tartness. Little to no malty character.

Taste: again the taste is dominated by raspberries but what else would you expect. They are quite juicy and just a little tart. Maybe some wheat characteristics but perhaps not enough to pick up without knowing it's there.

Mouthfeel: very light. And certainly refreshing. Good balance between sweet and tart. Just a little stickiness but not enough to take much away

Overall: a wonderfully refreshing beer. I just tried my first new glarus beer this week and I already can't get enough. This one is easily the best purely fruity beer I have had. Although I don't think it's perfect, there isn't much to change to get it there

This was nothing short of amazing.

It poured a ruddy reddish-amber with great foam. The aroma just pops with a fresh berry punch. It’s the same on the palate, tart and crisp and wildly vibrant. Pucker up and enjoy it. A real treat for this reviewer.
