Fruit / Vegetable Beer |  6.50% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A light, refreshing fruit beer fremented with over 500 pounds of real raspberries! At 6.2% ABV it is in the early reaches of the strong biére category! This ruby red, sour mashed and oak aged weiss beer is for everyone. Maybe some oak, cherry and vanilla come through? Try mixing it with our currently offered stout, on tap. It is real, it is right and it works. The freshest framboise on tap in town, no question.

On tap directly at the brewpub into a mug.

Pours a raspberry-like red body, slight tart aroma that is quite pleasant. A nice acidic raspberry flavor with a relative clean finish. I`d call this a middle of the road ale. Not intense but authentic nonetheless.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a pale, ruby coloring with no head. Strong, tart, sweet raspberry nose, with not much else interfering. The beer smells amazing. Tart and tangy raspberry on the forward tongue, with a toasty, grainy backbone that remains subtle, only there to provide some balance. The aftertaste is all tart raspberry sweetness, with a cloying finish on a light, crisp body. The fruit is completely spotlighted on this brew, but it has trouble living up to the aromas.

Enjoyed this at the Taste of Marlborough , multiple times.

A - Pours a nice bright almost ruby red raspberry hue, slightly hazy, with a thin fizzy head atop it.

S - Nose pops with lots of bright, sweet candied raspberries. Not fake/artificial, there are some light sour mash and faint oak.

T - Slightly sour and bitter with nice fresh raspberry notes. Like a fresher framboise as this does not have that artificial syrup note to it. Still, the raspberry is rather light.

M - Mouthfeel is very enjoyable here. Light and slightly flemmy.

O - Overall, this was a solid fruit beer. And at a festival with mostly adjunct lagers this really hit the spot.
