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 jewei-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!

    Pours a dark ruby red with a nice size white head that takes its time. Aroma is a little fruity with a hint of red 7-up. Taste is overwhelming at first but is very pleasant. The taste is mostly all raspberries and is very tart. Aftertaste lasts a little bit but drops off after several minutes. Bubbly to the tongue. Very well done.

    750ml wax dipped bottle - where the wax looks like it was dipped in a yankee candle - poured into a tulip. Raspberry tart has a redish brown appearance with a ton of carbonation and a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of raspberry and nothing else. Flavors of raspberry (SHOCK), tart oakiness, and a ton of white table sugar. If the sweetness could be dialed back a tad this would be out of this world - as it stands it is still a marvelous desert beer, and at 4% it's a joy to drink.

    I hate to review this beer...based on all other NG reveiws you'd think they brew with Angel's tears and Christs' blood. This is a wine cooler...if you want a good example of fruit beer try NG Belgian Red. The rasberry tart lives up to the name, lots of raspberry flavor and aroma and a sweet tart taste. It's almost like candy, a wine cooler as I said. I won't be more direct than that as NG has quite a faithful following and I don't want a mail bomb!

    Pours a reddish mahogany that is barely translucent, and has a minimal head, which may be an artifact of how it was poured. Raspberry dominates the rich and sweet aroma. Flavor is mainly raspberry, fairly sweet and slightly sour, more like a raspberry liqueur than a beer but still tasty. Texture is tingly, fizzy and edgy so it fairly dances on the tongue.

    Poured from a bottle to a deep raspberry red color with no head to speak of. The aroma was sharp sweet raspberry fruit. The taste had this deep sweet with fizz on the tongue then the sour raspberry flavor comes in. To me it's just a wonderful balance of sweet and sour and is probably one of the only raspberry beers that I can drink. It's just a great fruit beer, simple as that! Thanks to Pfoxyjohn for this bottle!

    Ruby red body with a small filmy head and little to no lacing. Tons of real raspberry aroma, granted it's fairly one dimensional but it's done really well. Easy going, mildly tart and sweet. A refreshing and spritzy body. Some biscuit is picked up on the flavor, but it's primarily a showcase for the wonderfully fermented raspberry taste. Fresh, lively and tart with a nice sweetness. Top shelf fruit beer, I would love this on hand all year long.

    Courtesy of pfoxyjohn. Aroma of, you guessed it raspberries, it poured a very reddish- amber body with a thin fizzy head. Mouthfeel was crisp and refreshing, with a clean, plesent finish. Flavor was of raspberries, but thankfully, it wasnt overly sweet, had a little tart bite, and had a slightly noticeable malt base in the end. Overall it was a fine example of a fruit beer, too many of these cross the line between beer and wine cooler, but this one didnt. Thanks to New Glarus and John.

    Courtesy of Pfoxyjohn. This is a damn good beer. The fizzy pinkish head disappears very quickly. Deep Purple color. Rich Raspberry flavor and aroma. Very one-dimensional, as expected, but delicious. Due to just how sweet this is, makes it a great beer to share; I would have had a hard time finishing this by myself. Thanks John!

    There are not many breweries in the entire world that make constantly amazing and well constructed brews, i mean, with New Glarus, it will always be something highly enjoyable..
    Raspberry Tart goes over this rule, an amazing brew!

    Pours a vibrant red with a man pink head, great lacing of course and exceptional strength of the foam ..

    Smell is of light berry and fruit juice, subtle...

    Pure wonderment in a bottle, bliss in glass, enjoyment at its core, just simply a joy to drink.. The sweetness and mouthfeel are so polite and refined, while still holding there ground, full and respectable, a beer! a good beer!!

    sitting here on such a nice day with a beer of this caliber i now know what lottery winners do on their private islands..

    Raspberry Tart!

    thanks to John for getting me a bottle, i will need more.. at the very least to inject into my veins!!

    A really nice fruit beer, probably the best out there. Bright red pour with plenty of raspberry aroma. The initial taste is very tart but then it is just raspberry throughout. It seems like a mix between a wine and a beer. Very good!
