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: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

750ml bottle with no freshness date served in a wine glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark red, almost brown, color with 2 fingers of a light khaki head with a slight reddish tinge. Body is dark but relatively clear when held up to light. Decent head retention and lacing

Smell: Big fruit aroma with raspberries being most prominent, accompanied by apple cider, pie crust, plenty of sweetness.

Taste: Sweet raspberry preserves, apple, slight spice. Sweetness is on the higher end of the spectrum, but is balanced really nicely by a tartness that increases through the middle and into the finish and aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft creamy mouthfeel and medium, but gentle carbonation. Very refreshing and almost no alcohol detectable.

Overall: Another really good beer from New Glarus. As with most of their fruit beers, this one is pretty straight forward. It's not what I would call complex, but it's not supposed to be. What it is is a really tasty fruit beer that's well worth seeking out.
