Wisconsin, United States

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

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.

A little sweet for me, but the raspberry flavor is fantastic. I'd love to try a few of their sours.

While this beer leans toward the sweet side, there's plenty of acidity from the berries to provide a mouth puckering pop. Pours with a creamy khaki colored head that produces lots of wispy lace. Plenty of raspberry aroma with a bit of grain in the background. Tart to start, leading to a sweet, but not cloying middle and finish. Big raspberry flavor predominates. Clean fruit finish with no bitterness. Medium light body and medium carbonation.

Raspberries galore in this beer. Smells of the delectable berry with a touch of toast in the background from the malt. Tastes like raspberry cobbler with an initial rush of berry sweetness that's quickly overcome by slight sour puckering and just when you think the beer is becoming too sweet the malt & hop make their grand beer saving entrance and balances everything out. Finishes slick and wet leaving my palate craving for the next sip. Outstanding from the masters of fruit beers
