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.

Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a clear dark ruby color with a short-lived fizzy pink single finger head, no lacing.

The aroma and flavor are both just chock full of jammy delicious freshly-crushed raspberry goodness with a smaller amounts of oak tannins complete with vanilla, caramel drizzle, and softened warm brown sugar tones. The Hallertau floral tones seem to be acting as raspberry amplifiers. Smooth, almost creamy (it must be the pectins) texture and gentle carbonation. Sweet and tart in equal amounts, but with absolutely minimal acidity.

Very much a dessert beer, and one of the best out of all of the dessert beers I've ever had. It also has the typical New Glarus signature style of making something exceptional by using an insanely dialed-in balance between relatively few (or minimalistic) flavor and aroma components.

Notes from the 2012 BC Trailer Tasting Camping Tour with Rutager.

A: Cloudy red liquid with cream coloured head.

S: Raspberries, yeast and sour funk.

T: Raspberries up front, but underneath there was a sour funk taste that I could only describe as fish guts.

M: Medium viscosity and carbonation.

O: The funk ruined this beer for me, I thought the bottle may have been ruined; but Rutager didn't pick up on the fishy taste I was getting in the finish. Oh well.
