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 is a deep brown cranberry. Poured with one finger of white head that diminished rapidly.

Aroma is all tart raspberries.

Taste follows nose. Juicy tart raspberries from start to finish. It does come across as slightly sweet otherwise it would be closer to a 5.

Feel is crisp and bubbly.

Overall a fine beer that I'm sure a lot of brewers couldn't get right. New Glarus certainly have it dialed in....

Is this a 750ml bottle? Either way, poured into my Lexan tulip for outdoor use.
Pours the color of plum flesh-dull red, copper. Great 1.5 finger head that sticks around with small bubbles on the outside perimeter. Raspberry jam, toasted oak and slight funk. Slightly tart raspberry jam, oak, mellow hops. Call me crazy but I get dill on the finish. Prickly effervescent mouthfeel but still staying full. This beer is awesome.

This was another beer from New Glarus that I traded for recently and took a while to get to. Every aspect of raspberry was present here as the tartness and juice of that fruit could felt from start to finish. If it was possible to ferment it and have it for dessert, this would be the likely end result. It was just a shame that I didn't have a champagne glass to pour this into!

25oz bomber (code:262 A3 1159)
Poured into a fluted pilsner glass boasts a deep red body and floats a 1in pinkish medium bubble head.
Aroma is all crisp tart raspberry and a slight cidery/fermentation smell.
Flavor is a sweetish tart raspberry.
Mouthfeel is the best quality, if there must be one. Medium body, full oily coating, and a clean dry finish.

Overall a great beer for enjoying out on the deck/lanai in this almost summer heat.

Huge fan of NG fruit beer--who isn't?-- so let's see how this one measures up.

Poured from a bomber--no date.

A vigorous pour gives a healthy two-tan-pink head. Beer is cloudy and dark red. Not as thick looking as strawberry rhubarb but similar. Some nice lacing.

Smell is straight up raspberries. Lots of tartness and lots of sweetness.

Taste is sweeter than I was expecting. There is a hint of tartness but the raspberries really make this one sweet. Reminds of picking raspberries off the bush as a kid.

Feel is so juicy and refreshing. Medium carbonation, a it less than I was expecting but I prefer it that way.

Overall, delicious. The perfect beer for a hot summer afternoon like today. I will say I prefer Strawberry Rhubarb to this 7/10 times but this is a sweeter and more mellow treat. Not a whole lot of complexity but this beer is simply mouthwatering.
