New Glarus Raspberry Tart

Converting macro beer people into American craft beer fans can seem difficult at times, especially based on the ease they are willing to accept the change. Of course beers that bridge the gap by being lighter usually allow that conversion to go easier.

The neighbors had a get together so I thought some home brew, a wheat beer and honey pale, would be perfect starters with the finish coming from a bottle of Raspberry Tart by New Glarus Brewing Company.

Definitely not a first time with this beer but just a complete appreciation for how well New Glarus does fruit beers. Besides the perfect amount of raspberries there is a nice subtlety of vanilla and oak adding a nice level of complexity.

The great thing about the fruit beers that New Glarus brews up is the ease at which women will at least try, usually coming back for seconds after an initial small pour. I will keep this one in the cellar for just these occasions and my own person preference. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9, Taste: 10, Look: 9, Drinkability: 8, Overall: 8.9

Useless Fact: All continents, with the exception of Antarctica, are wider in the north than in the south.
