    Think it'll taste as good as the bottle looks?

    Press Release:

    New Bottle Aged Brew to be Released at This Year’s Great American Beer Festival, Oct. 11-13

    PORTLAND, Ore. – October 10, 2012 – BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon’s oldest craft brewery, is set to premiere its newest beer, Enchanted, at this year’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colo. The new, very limited brew is an aged version of the brewery’s ever-popular Stumptown Tart from 2010. Enchanted is a Belgian Style Framboise infused with 2,000 pounds of Oregon red raspberries and then aged for two years in oak barrels.

    “This is a special one for our team,” commented brewmaster, Jeff Edgerton. “The 2010 Stumptown Tart was a favorite not only amongst our loyal BridgePort fans – but also amongst our brewers. The only way to up the ante on that beer was to let it age in oak barrels for two years. The result is something surprising and pretty unforgettable.”

    Enchanted has been described by the limited few who have tried it as presenting with an obvious berry wine taste and then finishing with the mellow flavor of oak and some extra-sparkling carbonation. This reserve beer will be available in limited quantity in Oregon only.

    BridgePort’s Stumptown Tart Stats: IBU’s: 14 ABV: 7.7% Color: Reddish-Pink OG: 17.6 Ingredients: Pacific Northwest pale malted barley, Pacific Northwest malted wheat, German hops, 2,000 pounds of Oregon Red Raspberries, Belgian yeast. 50% Belgian Tripel aged in wine barrels one year blended with Belgian Tripel and Raspberries. Description: A Belgian Framboise style Ale infused with Oregon Red Raspberries and aged in oak barrels for two years. A strong, fruit driven Framboise with hints of raspberry, oak and spicy Belgian yeast flavors with a light, refreshing finish.

    About BridgePort Brewing Company: Oregon’s oldest craft brewery continues to evolve from a microbrewery to a regional leader in the craft brewing market, while remaining faithful to its commitment to producing high-quality, innovative craft ales.

    I wonder if this will be reasonably priced as it is from Bridgeport. Sounds tasty to me!

    I want to try this, but they have nothing I go crazy about so I am not going to go crazy trying to find this.

    $13/bottle according to my OR source. Sounds reasonable for such a limited brew.

    Saw this at Bottleworks yesterday. Hand numbered up to 2400 bottles I believe.

    Passed on it due to the fact that it said Bridgeport on the side of the bottle.

    Drinking it now. Great nose, very watery body. I had high hopes when I smelled the blast of raspberry, but alas, twas not to be. Review up later. Very average beer.

    I thought it was really enjoyable. Nothing near as complex as supplication or anything, but I just enjoyed drinking it. I thought it was worth the $12 no question.
