Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

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.

Raspberries galore in this beer. Smells of the delectable berry with a touch of toast in the background from the malt. Tastes like raspberry cobbler with an initial rush of berry sweetness that's quickly overcome by slight sour puckering and just when you think the beer is becoming too sweet the malt & hop make their grand beer saving entrance and balances everything out. Finishes slick and wet leaving my palate craving for the next sip. Outstanding from the masters of fruit beers

Poured from 750mL waxed bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: deep, rich red hue with no haze at all; head pours a thick finger of pinkish-ivory foam. It think it's very attractive indeed.

Smell: very lightly tart with a beautiful, enticing raspberry aroma. I can't wait to taste it!

Taste: rich raspberries, a light, smooth tartness, sweet caramel malt underneath and just a wonderful joy to experience. Definitely the best fruit beer I've had.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess. Not bad.

Overall: this is a magnificent beer. I would buy it regularly if I lived in Wisconsin.
