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.

Tart, fizzy, and a little bit sour. Like a jolly rancher in a glass. Too sweet for daily drinking, but makes a great dessert beer. Especially if you like your dessert first. Wish there was more bitter and less berry in this, but would still seek this out for a special occasion pour.

Thanks to ActonBrewer for this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from wax-sealed bomber into Peg's snifter.

A: Dark amber in color with a hint of red. Forms a one and one-half finger pinkish white head on top of a good amount of visible carbonation.

S: Sour, tangy, fruity, and some sweet malt. Not an overall strong aroma but what's there is pleasant.

T: Much stronger than nose. Tart raspberry, dark fruity, and tangy. Almost like raspberry pie filling, or I suppose, a raspberry tart (although I've never had one). Fruity tartness in the hang.

M: A bit chewy on the mouthfeel. Decent carbonation sensation and is a heavier body than expected. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: A bit on the sweet side for an everyday drinker, but thoroughly enjoyable. Well-made beer, and one I would highly recommend trying.

The beer pours a clear crimson amber with a thin head that fades quickly. The nose is vegetal with a potent raspberry sweetness...without any indication of alcohol or tartness. The taste is just as sweet as the nose, but much more tartness finally presents itself. The aftertaste (proceeding the mouthwatering tartness) is malty and sweet. This beer doesn't resemble cough syrup, which is an added bonus! A slight yeastiness complements the beer's sweet nose and taste. It's a light bodied, drinkable, framboise-like beer that's slightly lacking in carbonation, but has sufficient malt characteristics to remind me this is actually a "beer" I'm drinking. I don't understand why this beer is quite so raved about, but I think it closely resembled blushing monk (which I prefer more) and is worth trying.

Bomber poured into a flute

Pours an amber red color with a very small quick fading white head. Smells of sour fruits and not much else. Very sweet smelling. Taste is pretty fruit forward but some sour funk is present as well. Mouthfeel is medium with decent carbonation. Overall this is very unique. Very enjoyable and delicious.
