Essentially an "Imperial Rübæus," this ale contains four times the amount of raspberries as Rübæus and is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain.

Possibly the best fruit beer I've had where the fruit is the sole star. This beer is all about jammy raspberries. It's not "funky" or "sour." There's an inherent tartness because fresh raspberries are tart by nature. I'd love to pair this with some vanilla ice cream for dessert. Truly remarkable.
