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: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured into a nonic pint.

Look--A rather dark brownish red...not very appealing...looks nothing like a beer. Frothy white head lasted almost a minute.

Smell--Raspberry syrup.

Taste--Also, raspberry syrup...no hint of malt or hops. A bit tart, but with a subtle touch of sweetness.

Feel--Moderate carbonation, moderate body.

Overall--This lacks any of the beer characteristics of their Apple Ale; this is more like a soda, or a raspberry wine. I am not likely to purchase this again, as it does not remind me of an ale whatsoever.

Notes from the 2012 BC Trailer Tasting Camping Tour with Rutager.

A: Cloudy red liquid with cream coloured head.

S: Raspberries, yeast and sour funk.

T: Raspberries up front, but underneath there was a sour funk taste that I could only describe as fish guts.

M: Medium viscosity and carbonation.

O: The funk ruined this beer for me, I thought the bottle may have been ruined; but Rutager didn't pick up on the fishy taste I was getting in the finish. Oh well.

Appearance is a nice light red color with pink head and some decent lacing. Very inviting looking. Smell is tons and tons of sweet raspberries and a little bit of mustiness. A little overpowering. Not that I don't like my beer overpowering, but I prefer some complexity, even in a fruit beer. Taste is pure mashed raspberry syrup on the tip of the tongue. It does have some faint mustiness and a lingering tart aspect to keep the sweetness in check, which makes me able to finish almost half the 750, but it's still a struggle. Mouthfeel is very nice and velvety though.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a half-pint pokal glass.

A: Clear, dark rusty amber color--tea-like--with a peripheral ring of parchment-tinted bubbles. Scant lacing remains on the glass.

S: Reminiscent of a raspberry-flavored bottled iced tea--the raspberry quality is self-evident, but not especially authentic. Malt is very mild, transformed by fermentation, which leads to some of the earthy tea.

T: Begins sweet, with extract-like raspberry fruit that is consistent with the smell. Moderate acidity keeps flavors lively on the palate into the middle, where minor earthy qualities begin to replace some of the retreating acidic fruit. Flavors taper off by the finish, with a slightly fruity sense of sticky sweetness lingering on the palate.

M: Thin viscosity, slightly syrupy and energetically acidic on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: As the third American-brewed raspberry fruit beer reviewed in as many months this beer lets something of a letdown, given its positive reputation. While raspberry flavors are fairly intense, they are also less than credible. The sensory qualities of this beer seem to have been optimized for the palate of the non-beer drinker.
