Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: julian on 02-28-2011

Imperial Witbier, 8% ABV, sour mashed 1-2 days, and fermented with a blend of Berliner Weisse culture and Belgian Witbier yeast. Beer is barrel fermented in large red wine barrels (132 gal. barrels). Raspberries are added to the beer towards the end of fermentation directly to the barrel, and aged on the raspberries for a minimum of 1 month. The Berliner culture contains souring bacteria and the raspberries will add acidity to the beer. Brewed to commemorate Bottleworks 12th Anniversary.

Jun 2013 bottle, opened Sep 2014

A - Really nice head; 3 fingers of creamy white foam with ok retention and lace. Moderately opaque apricot body.

S - Wit-to-saison-like aroma. Wheat bread, orange, hay, dried cilantro, lemon zest, rose water, plant stems, and a wisp of blackberry jam.

T - Really nice balance. Creamy wheat, tart raspberries, black cherry, bitter herbs, dried grass, and bright sour blood orange.

M - Smooth, creamy, medium-full body. Nice dry finish.

O - A well executed, clever take on the style.
