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.

Deserves it rating. Outstanding, but of a particular niche. Doesn't really register as beer at all; drinks more like a cider, or even just fruit juice. The alcohol's so low it's practically invisible. Perfect fare for a picnic, or a kid's birthday party. If in the mood, it's heaven. But you gotta be in the mood.

Tastes like real fresh raspberries, not raspberry candy like Rubaeus or rasberry cough syrup like Raspberry Eisbock. Once I got past the fact that it tastes nothing like beer, it was very enjoyable. Very sweet but with enough sour to balance. If someone told me it was raspberry soda I'd have believed them.

Extremely carbonated, overly fruity, and lower than desired alcohol content. Overall this was underwhelming

Similar to Strawberry Rhubarb, I just don't get the hype around this beer. Overly sweet, not much tart and very syrupy. Not my style of beer, just feel like sugar overtook any other flavor.

Poured into a nonic pint.

Look--A rather dark brownish red...not very appealing...looks nothing like a beer. Frothy white head lasted almost a minute.

Smell--Raspberry syrup.

Taste--Also, raspberry syrup...no hint of malt or hops. A bit tart, but with a subtle touch of sweetness.

Feel--Moderate carbonation, moderate body.

Overall--This lacks any of the beer characteristics of their Apple Ale; this is more like a soda, or a raspberry wine. I am not likely to purchase this again, as it does not remind me of an ale whatsoever.

A: Brown-red, light pink coarse head that fizzes out, no lace and only thin islands to serve as reminders that it was ever there. Single weak stream of bubbles. The wax topping on this bottle is gross.

S: Sickly sweet fruit. Cherry and strawberry, sure raspberry could be hidden in there, too.

T: Stop beating around the bush and drink the damn thing! Much better on the tongue, the nose has improved with plenty of red fruit profiles yet only bits of the former sweetness. Weak 'beer' flavors in the background. SO friggin' drinkable, like soda with more wholesome ingredients. Not a 'manly' beer but good God is it refreshing and easy to pour down the hatch.

F: Light bodied, light carbonation. Only reinforces how easy it is to make a bomber disappear. Only drawback is a bit of filminess.

O: I'm almost sorry I gave myself time to appraise this thing. Once you taste it, it's a slippery slope to chugging it. It's not a 'thinking' beer, but in its simplicity there is greatness.
