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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a brownish red haze, off white head that dies down slow but not rapidly, has nice carbination and smells tart like raspberries and cherries. Taste is sour, not quite puckering with a mouthfeel a little thicker than other framboise, upfront sour to raspberries to an almost caramel malt, maybe a little barrel? This one goes down quick and I definitely appreciate the higher abv in regards to the style. A lot of raspberry, acid going on balanced with the barrel on the back end.
