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 oz bottle - 2017.

Wonderful aroma on this clear red beer with a good bit of foam upon aggressive pour. I didn't get so much tartness on this as I expected, and it's extremely sweet for me. Raspberry is definitely there and the mouthfeel is good for only a 4% abv beer. But, it is overly sweet for me. I'm glad I tried this but it's not exactly for me. However, if you like sweeter fruit beers, this will definitely deliver (especially if you like raspberries).

Nice to see this in 12oz bottles. Excited to get my hands on a few by way of a trade. Everything I've had from New Glarus has been outstanding - they have the fruit-beer style down cold.

Pours a muddled, ruddy reddish garnet hue with a thin head. Looks like freshly ground raspberries and strawberries.

Aroma is sweet, tart and slightly acidic - fresh berries and jam assault the senses and tickle the palate.

Tastes like a raspberry tart without the crust - deliciously sweet and tart. Before it gets cloying l, however, the tartness reigns it in. Feels thick and robust on the tongue - berries and jam come with a noticeable heft. Nice lingering tartness and acidic bite.

Strawberry Rhubarb is their gold standard but this isn't too far behind. I was surprised how dark and sweet the beer looked and tasted. I was expecting something more effervescent and lighter on the palate but it's outstanding nonetheless.

Aged one year in my cellar.

Strawberry jam colored body, opaque in spots and clearer in others. It's gorgeous. A bubble gum pink head adorns the crown of the glass with 2 fingers of head.

Lots of jammy aromas - like a mix of raspberry and strawberry jam. A sharp citric acid note behind that.

Sublimely simple and complex at the same time. Flavor is a burst of fresh raspberry jam, sour strawberry tops, and a lemon-lime sorbet flavor towards the finish. It drinks itself.

Feel is heavily carbonated, but thick enough to give it a berry fruit smoothie-like consistency.

Overall - this beer is a delicacy. It's highly sought after for a reason. And it's just. so. good.
