Notes/Commercial Description:
This is a very limited batch and it is an acquired taste. You may want to start with a sample size before you invest in a full glass. This is a Belgian inspired Wheat Ale brewed with Oregon grown red raspberries. In fact, 2 pounds of them in every gallon of beer! The flavor displays a Belgian Lambic style sourness followed by the sweet tartness of the raspberries. Named for the Brewmaster’s lovely wife, its means vat or cask of Renés very special beer. I brewed this beer on our anniversary, May 15th , to commemorate 20 years of wedded bliss and to make up for forgetting to send Roses!

On tap at the brewpub on 7/4/12.

A - Poured a clear, reddish pink color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It left wispy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of cherry and some sweet notes.

T - It was tart with some sour cherry flavor. There was some sweetness to balance it out.

M - It was crisp with a slight puckering bite. A light to medium bodied ale.

O - This is a nice fruit beer. I enjoyed it on a hot summer afternoon.
