In this beer blog, we are going to take a look at the final beer of the seven from New Glarus Brewing. I kind of left the best for last and plus, this beer is in a 750ml bottle. The beer is called Raspberry Tart. If you read my earlier blog on their Fat Squirrel Ale, I will not bored you with the history and information on this brewery. If you have not read that blog, please read the first part of that post. Let us get into this fruit beer.
This fruit beer has a nice beautiful red color with a semi white head on it. I realize it is hard to see in the photo above. It is pretty sight either way. It has a raspberry smell to the beer. It is extremely sweet raspberry taste with a dull lingering raspberry aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable beer.
Here is a descriation from their website (www.newglarusbrewing.com) and beer bottle:
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.
Life’s too short to wait for dessert. Enjoy, Daniel and Deborah Carey

Endgame, I really really enjoyed this beer. I had it with a bowl of ice cream and it was perfect with the beer. I love the sweetness from the fruit from the beer. This beer is perfect for desserts. It is not a beer you can sit there and drink while watching a football game. If you like to do that, please, do so but that is not how I roll. There is a nice balance in this beer and I am glad my friend brought this down for me. I want to try their Cherry Ale. If it is anything like their Raspberry Tart, it will be awesome. Let me know what you think of this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
