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.

Pours a very dark, muddy red with a pinkish, foamy head that settled quickly with a few chunky islands. Where's the "sparkle"? Am I missing something? Nose is nice and smells sweet and jammy, though thankfullly, the taste is more balanced. Nice tartness, but not at alll overwhelming. Like all NG beers, the flavors are balanced and subdued. Nice mouthfeel, but would be better served by a more biting, champagne-like carbonation. Nice, refreshing, but reminds me of a refined Fruli, rather than something decidedly world class.

Pours a very dark ruby colour. Smells like a slightly tart, very sweet raspberry jam. Tastes quite sweet, slightly tart, thick raspberry jam, slightly syrupy.

Tastes like tart raspberry jam. I heard it was sweet, and it was - so I'm glad I shared it with friends. Nice, refreshing low-abv beer, excellent as a dessert! 750ml is a bit much, but if you share the bottle it isn't a problem. Recommended!

This beer pours a murky deep ruby red color almost garnet, reminiscent of Juicy Juice (I have two kids under 2). The head is two fingers, dense and off white. Retention is moderate and there are silky swatches of lacing left all over the glass.

Smell is straight up raspberries. Sweet fresh raspberries.

Taste is very similar. So much fresh raspberries. It starts off with sweet raspberries, but transitions wonderfully to a tart, dry finish.

Feel is light, juicy and crisp. Carbonation similar to champagne makes the finish just a touch prickly.

Overall an excellent beer. The fresh berries really make this beer. Best fruit beer I've ever had!

OK, this beer is beautiful. Bright red, smells and tastes exactly like what you would hope for. Sweet and tart rasberries through and through. It TASTES like it LOOKS! Long story short, I'd put this right there up against the classic framboise's such as Lindeman's. It's a little less carbonated than the classic Belgians, but I think, again I say think, prefer it this way. Cheers!
