Wisconsin ale brewed with raspberries
Appearance is a deep, raspberry-pink-red hue topped with a pale pinkish head of very fine foam. Amazing aroma of raspberry danish – sweetish and fruity. Very fine carbonation tingles the tongue. Medium body and a smooth, almost velvety texture. Superb raspberry flavour is again reminiscent of a danish or maybe a pie, with a sweetish front followed by a tart, almost puckering finish. No hop character at all, and the malt has a light, bready or pie crust effect, but make no mistake, this beer is all about the raspberries. I get a mix of both red and black raspberry flavour. The back end has a little butteriness or oiliness to the mouthfeel. Good depth of flavour. Finish lingers a bit and fades. Wow.
