Notes/Commercial Description:
Framboise de Amorosa is our first foray into the world of raspberry beers. It begins as Lost and Found ale and is sent into freshly emptied red wine barrels. The beer spends over a year in the wood during which time it is spiked with three additions of raspberries.

The first sip produces a sweet start with a long drawn out sour finish. Some of the sweetness from the raspberries comes out before acidic notes join the mix. On the back end of the beer is a smoothing oak character which keeps the beer from becoming dull.

Strong on the tartness up front and full of raspberry for sure. Tames a bit later on but keeps a pinch of sour throughout. Medium to high carbonation.

My first sour and I guess these take some getting used to. Different than anything I've had for sure but interesting
