Notes/Commercial Description:
Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW's Good Food, was inspired to collaborate with Patrick Rue and The Bruery after enjoying a homemade Rhubarb Raspberry Pie. The rhubarb's fruity sourness tempered with the sweetness of the fresh raspberries and the wheat crust, begged to be bottled up in the form of a bubbly beer. Keeping the original pie recipe in mind, specialty grains were chosen to mimic the crust, and rhubarb and raspberries were used in varying stages of the brewing and fermentation process. The resulting beer is reminiscent of a fresh country pie, cooling on a farmhouse windowsill.

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a hazy ruby red color. Minimal white froth.

(S)- Bright yet zesty jammy fruits. Slight dry oak and acidic kick in the background.

(T)- Again, very jammy fruits: raspberry, rhubarb, and strawberry. Slightly dry acidity. Quite tart.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. Great fruits and tart acidity to it. Lighter in body but superb fruits all around.

(O)- This is another good sour from the Bruery. Great fruits with a lighter body, but full of tart acidity
