Notes/Commercial Description:
La Vie en Rose is a dry, well attenuated, unspiced Farmhouse Ale refermented with the same raspberries used to make Jester King Atrial Rubicite. Naturally occurring wild yeasts impart a sense of place to this unfiltered, unpasteurized, 100% naturally conditioned beer.

4.11/5  rDev +0.2%

thanks to duff27 for the share!

poured into Cantillion wine stem.

Appearance: opaque beer that looks almost identical to pink lemonade. Thin cap of white head that quickly turns into no head at all.

Smell: Lots of raspberries with a decent amount of lacto notes. Lots of cheesy and greek yogert funk.

Taste: Mild tartness. Lotso fresh juicy raspberries. Hints of that cheesy / greek yogert funk that was found in the aroma of this beer. Yeah its simple, but its still remains very tasty!

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with low carbonation levels. Really refreshing and easy to drink.

Overall: This beer is conflicting between a really mellow sour beer with raspberries and a raspberry berlinner wiesse beer. Its hard for me to decide. I have seen both ends of that spectrum and it really in a gray area. The bottom line is this: its still a good beer brewed with raspberries.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pinkish body. Small white head. Very thin collar.

Smell - Musty raspberry. Little bit of lemony acidity. Light grainy malt. Kinda floral, although that may be the power of suggestion.

Taste - Raspberry, but not a sweet or intense raspberry. Very musty. Gives way to a bretty and musty grain. Lemony tang. Raspberry continues throughout.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Pleasant in every way, just never distinctive.
