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.

A: Pours a purple, brown-reddish color with a frothy, off-white-pinkish head. The retention is certainly there and holds on for a bit, while the lacing is only delicate

S: There is no doubting the raspberries or the tartness in this treat. Although, notes of blackberries, cranberries, cherries, strawberries, and oak can be identified in there as well

T: Sweet, sour, tart, and a little bitterness complement the notes: raspberries, blackberries, cranberries, cherries, and strawberries

M: Medium (bubbly) carbonation and a light (crisp) body

O: Extremely refreshing and drinkable

There isn't a way that I can see on this site to log in a flawed or spoiled beer, so my rating may not make much sense.

On tap...beer was "corked" (TCA) contaminated. Nose was soggy cardboard. You still got nice tart fruit in the mouth, but the smell was a deal killer. I will revisit with two bombers that I just bought.

FWIW, it would be helpful for beer drinkers to log flaws. That would help establish patterns among producers/distribution chains..

EDIT: Bomber #1 had the same wet cardboard TCA nose.
