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.

Appearance: Such a beautiful red color. Edges have a slight brown color. Light bubbly head with a slight pink color which was present throughout. Average lacing stuck on the glass while drinking. Slightly above average carbonation throughout.

Smell: Very tart, a little over the top. There is also a funky sourness on the undertones of this aroma. Bright raspberry character carries the body of the aroma.

Taste: Wow this blew me away. A sweet sugary front brings you in right away. The body is a wonderfully rounded raspberry flavor with a perfectly balanced sourness. The sweetness/sugary tones come in on the back end and leave a light lacing on the palette. The flavors stick around long after drinking, with a sourness, raspberry, and very light malt character. Truly wonderful.

Mouthfeel: Dry front which smoothes out and leaves a sugary feeling on the palette.

Overall: This beer is absolutely outstanding. I am not a fan of sweet/sugary things in any respect, so this beer for me is a perfect balance on outstanding beer qualities with all the fruit characteristics one could ask for. This is no doubt the best beer I've ever had from New Glarus, and it seems their absolute strength seems to be this style. Can't wait to have more.
