Aging NG Fruit Beers?

Discussion in 'Cellaring / Aging Beer' started by boilermakerbrew, Jan 8, 2013.

  1. Anyone have any experience cellaring any of the NG fruit beers? More specifically Rasp Tart? Any experience with any of the fruit beers should be comparable otherwise I'd think...thanks in advance.

    They really don't change significantly, at least within a few years of aging. That's all I can tell you firsthand.
  3. Alright, that's what I figured. From the reviews, most seem to be all fruit and little else in the flavor. And they don't use brett (or similar yeat) as far as I know, so development is probably unlikely.

    My opinion...it's hard to get any better than they already are!

    They will still taste fantastic after a couple years but they won't really evolve into something that they aren't already, and they're already awesome.
