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.

Thanks to Steve D for hooking this up via a trade. New Glarus Raspberry Tart. How I love thee.

What's yet to be determined is whether this deeply red hued translucent brew sitting underneath a half finger head can top its sister Belgian Red. I know one thing though. It's freakin' fantastic. The tartness of the raspberries comes out in the nose, but wallops in the taste. Hitting that fine line of medicinal and overly sweet, this one peeks at both, and then comes back to being beer. Most certainly tart, most certainly raspberry, the brew is well carbonated and smooth despite all of its sweetness. That makes it medium in the mouth without getting in the way of enjoying it quickly. But why would you? You'd be missing everything about it worth savoring.

I wish I had this on hand year round. But I'd have to move to Wisconsin to do it. So for now I'll try to appreciate New York's trash while remembering this treasure.

Thanks to this 25oz bottle from umustdrink.

A: Red with a hint of brown. No head.

S: Sour raspberry. Really sour. Makes me get that sour-salivation reflex just from smelling.

T: It's raspberry, it's sour, and as a fruit beer I'm not sure I can get anything more than that, nor do I know if they intend for there to be more than that. But I was expecting a raspberry beer and I got it. The acidity is pretty high.

M/D: It's very spritzy but does have a certain smoothness to it, for a really light beer. The carbonation is very fine. I like sour, I can't take a certain amount of acidity though and this seems to be just around that line. Very good to drink a few ounces here and there, but I couldn't really see myself wanting much more than that.

A - Body is a deep mahogany red, with a reddish-white head.

S - Sweet raspberries with a hint of tartness. That's pretty much it. I guess that's why they call it Raspberry Tart.

T - I mean...I don't know what to say. Raspberries and tartness. The name says it all. Starts tart, finishes sweet. There's not a lot more to it. It's good.

M - It's tricky. The tartness on the tongue is a bit harsh, but the body is nice and smooth, and the finish is pretty good.

D - It's only drawback is the tartness. That makes it a little bit more challenging to drink. But if you're into that stuff, then it'll be good.

I don't know what more there is to this beer than it's name. That's the best description there can be, I think, other than to note that it tastes good, and the flavors are well balanced.
