Yes, Weyerbacher's Riserva is amazing...I concur!
I personally liked Cerise, but Rubaeus is a LOT better than Cerise.
Awesome! Looking forward to getting some! Thanks
I know it is somewhat of a whale, but Southampton Black Raspberry lambic is the best raspberry sour I have had. Rose de Gambrinus, Lou Pepe Framboise are also great.
Got my Riserva last nite $16 very nice. Looking forward to trying this tonite.
Crooked Stave Batch 1
You could trade for a growler of Bruery BeRazzled when it becomes available.
Not as good as some of the other Belgian ones mentioned but decent and much easier to get is Hanssens.
Just to name a few
Hanssens Experimental Raspberry
Cantillon Lou Pepe
Hanssens Oude Gueze
Lindemans Cuvee Gueze
Cantillon Classic Gueuze
I had this on tap at Hopcat during there Wood and Wild festival. It was my least favorite beer there and I could not finish my glass, tasted like a raspberry boonsfarm and had no oak/sour/brett tasting to it whatsoever. Regardless, I bought a bottle of it from the brewery as I wanted to complete my collection of the ABC sour series bottles. I am going to let it sit for a couple years and pray that the leftover brett develops sour tastes over time.
-hope this helps
phenomenal beer. They just ran out of the '11 Noyaux on their website because my buddy bought them all out
Oude Beersel Framboise is my "go-to" for a readily available and affordable Framboise, when I get a craving
Stupid question I know, but do I want to enjoy Riserva cold or room temp?
Picked mine up yesterday and I forgot to put it in the fridge.
(I'm new to the sours game)
I, too, just picked one up.... looking forward to it, as well, although I hope I like it even more than you do given that I paid $24 for it.
Serve it around 50 degrees.
Oh I wanted to try the one you sent me as well! I want to try all of Cascade's wild ales.
Cool. And I'm with you all the way. Cascade and sours are a match like tea and scones.
Awesome!! Enjoy it!!! Tasting notes please!!!
Tried New Glarus Raspberry Tart on tap this past weekend and couldn't believe how good it was. I should also note it was my first time with a raspberry sour. It was like biting into a good organic raspberry: the juicy sweetness hits first, and if you've got a good berry, you bite down into its seeds at the end of the bite and it releases its slightly bitter, volatile raspberry seed oils. It was like that.. Delicious!
SouthHampton Black Raspberry Lambic
OP said he's not looking to go Wale hunting. This is definitely that territory.
Oops didnt see the whale part.
captain lawrence barrel select raspberry. being released soon.
My favorite is Mikkeller SpontanFramboos a Raspberry Wild Ale. All the sours in that series (we have had the blueberry and strawberry also) are excellent.
Well Read Temptress
I'm a big fan of Goose Island Lolita, though I haven't had many of the other beers mentioned here, so can't really speak for how it stacks up
There's a Spontan-blue? I've had the kriek, framboos, strawberry, and spontanale (no fruit). How was the blueberry?
Forgot to mention, this beer is just full of fruit flavor, can taste both strawberries and raspberries. But if you are looking for a good sour fruit-innoculated beer from Arbor Brewing, I would highly recommend the Flamboyant Red. That is by far the best of the ABC Sour Series
Ended up cracking it last night, def full of fruit flavor. I'll need to try to find that Red next time I am in MI
Came here to say that, I really like it!
anything that says framboise i guess lol
Blueberry was our favorite.. If I remember correctly it was called spontan wild blueberry. Had it at Blue Monk in Buffalo.
You could probably trade for a growler of The Bruery Berazzled.
I still have 6-7 bottles of the 2011 Red if you are interested in trade, and know of a store that has a couple bottles of 2010 red. Lemme know, otherwise you shoud definitely scoop up the Flamboyant red and get the Sodibo next time you are out here, it is the most puckering of the series.
Framboise white from block 15 and Enchanted from Bridgeport are incredible! I love living in Oregon!
