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.

Very nice balance of tartness and raspberry notes both on the nose and in the flavor profile. Nice mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall an excellent beer!

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a deep ruby red with slight haze and essentially no head.
S: Loads of sweet raspberry with a hint of tart. Pretty much a one note wonder...but it is wonderful!
T: Follows aroma with sweet and mildly tart raspberry. Wow!
M: Light body. Sweet with a hint of tart.
D: Not complex, but it doesn't have to be. Best raspberry beer I've ever had. Lives up to the hype and then some.

This has been resting for about 3 years. The berry flavor was closer to a strawberry rhubarb in terms of it's sticky sweetness. Carbonation was still active and it maintained a light, crisp feel without being over-sweet. Great desert beer or paired with some plain vanilla ice cream (over even poured over it)!
