Notes / Commercial Description:
Framboise de Amorosa is our first foray into the world of raspberry beers. It begins as Lost and Found ale and is sent into freshly emptied red wine barrels. The beer spends over a year in the wood during which time it is spiked with three additions of raspberries.

The first sip produces a sweet start with a long drawn out sour finish. Some of the sweetness from the raspberries comes out before acidic notes join the mix. On the back end of the beer is a smoothing oak character which keeps the beer from becoming dull.

Fantastic sour with most of the flavor showing up on the back end. When it first hits the tongue, there's just some tartness and a bit of oak. The raspberry really kicks in right before swallowing.

2012 cellared bottle, enjoyed this weekend. Bought at the brewery back when we lived in Oceanside.
Complexity has grown as sweetness mellowed since we last tasted when we first bought the bottles. Forward tartness and raspberry flavors remain.
A wonderful, darker framboise that is worth aging!
