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.

Berrieness and Beeriness.

This beer is amazing ... it's concentrated raspberries, of course, but it's more than just an intense raspberry hit. It is unquestionably a beer as well -- there's a fairly subtle beeriness to it that blends with the fruit intensity to give the whole thing a different character than just the berries. I think the beer character gives this a fuller mouthfeel, and a bit maltier taste, to go along with the killer dose of raspberry goodness.

I think of other fruit beers I've had that are basically hefeweizens with a mild fruit overlay - they are refreshing and tasty, but thin and light, and not anywhere in the same league as what New Glarus as done.

Raspberry Tart is beautiful as well ... bubbly and colorful.

Best Fruit Beer Ever.
