BEER INFO

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

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Deep ruby red, looks like a raspberry puree. Smells like fresh raspberries you can tell it's going to be tart right away. Fruity citric acid makes you pucker up but in a good way. Tastes more like a fruit juice than a beer. Desert drink rather than an everyday beverage.

was really looking forward to drinking this one after trying the belgian red, and was not nearly as satisfied with it. very sweet, rasberry flavor just doesnt seem to work as well as the cherry did in the belgian red. was hoping for some tartness that wasnt there, just fruity sweetness. not a terrible beer, just not what i was hoping for

Poured into Flute glass

A: Pours reddish light brown with light foam on top

S: Smells very sweet

T: Does not taste like a Lambic or framboise like it is supposed to. It tastes like a sub par beer with too much raspberry sweetness. Syrupy sweet.

M: Light and crisp but the sweet syrup will overpower your judgement

Overall: Some argue that this brew is not supposed to be sour (which it def is not sour what so ever), but the they call it a framboise (lambic) and traditionally the style is a little funky or sour. This was only fruit syrup tasting. So incredibly sweet.
