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.

12 ounce bottle, no dating on the bottle that I noticed. Thanks to my friend Mary Kae for getting this for me! Served in a MadTree teku, the beer pours a mostly clear dark reddish color with about an inch off-white head with a tinge of pink. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. I like the aroma a lot, the brew smells like fresh raspberries, both tart and sweet. Taste is similar to the aroma, with sweet and tart raspberry and raspberry jam flavors. There's also some caramel, dark bread, woody and brown sugar flavors noticeable too. Have to say I think it's a little more sweet than tart, but still very, very fruity! Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a pretty good fruit beer, definitely worth trying if you like raspberries!

Way too sweet and not fitting to the "tart" part of the name. Personal opinion from a sour drinker.

A - Pours a dark red with large off white head. Good amount of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is sweet and tart raspberries.

T - The taste is filled with huge amount of sweet and tart raspberries, tart cherries and some light toasted malts.

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with nice crisp finish.

O - This is a tremendous fruit beer. The raspberry is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Liquid raspberry jam.

Beautiful deep red raspberry color with pinkish cap and lacing.

Scent of ripe raspberries that manages to smell both tart and sweet.

Taste just like it smells. I don't know if the word tart refers to the fruit or is a reference to pastry but the term works either way. I think, on the whole, dry tartness wins out over fruit sweetness but these rather simple flavors are well matched and mingled.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Overall I think it's a very good example of a fruit flavored ale.

Very much on the sweet side, huge raspberry and berry notes on the nose and palate. Very light tartness, slightest drying sensation on finish. Amazing beer
