BEER INFO

Brewed by:
New Glarus Brewing Company
Wisconsin, United States
newglarusbrewing.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

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- Pours a moderately deep, somewhat dull ruby color. Medium to large head that retains only a little while but laces nicely in the New Glarus flute. Constant carbonation is visible and it is apparent that this a very bubbly beer.

S- All raspberry, but varying flavors throughout. Starts with some naturally sweet berry tones, but then progresses straight into a funky note. The funky note turns a touch to the sour side. Finishes with a mix of the sour, sweet, and funky notes.

T- Just like the smell, except more natural (if possible). Starts with only a slight hint of sweet, then goes right into the funk. The funk and sour are stronger here than in the scent. Sweetness persists under the slight sour notes throughout the drink, but the funk and sour take a front seat. Ends with a slight bite of sour and little to no aftertaste on the tongue.

M- Light and fizzy all the way through. Pretty thin and easy to drink. Sour level doesn't effect it's ability to be drank at length.

Overall, this is a great fruit beer. Not terribly complex in the flavor or scent, but pretty delicious all the way through. Sour and sweet notes really work together to make this a beer and not just a carbonated fruit drink.
