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.

Aged one year in my cellar.

Strawberry jam colored body, opaque in spots and clearer in others. It's gorgeous. A bubble gum pink head adorns the crown of the glass with 2 fingers of head.

Lots of jammy aromas - like a mix of raspberry and strawberry jam. A sharp citric acid note behind that.

Sublimely simple and complex at the same time. Flavor is a burst of fresh raspberry jam, sour strawberry tops, and a lemon-lime sorbet flavor towards the finish. It drinks itself.

Feel is heavily carbonated, but thick enough to give it a berry fruit smoothie-like consistency.

Overall - this beer is a delicacy. It's highly sought after for a reason. And it's just. so. good.

Look is a deep brown cranberry. Poured with one finger of white head that diminished rapidly.

Aroma is all tart raspberries.

Taste follows nose. Juicy tart raspberries from start to finish. It does come across as slightly sweet otherwise it would be closer to a 5.

Feel is crisp and bubbly.

Overall a fine beer that I'm sure a lot of brewers couldn't get right. New Glarus certainly have it dialed in....
