Framboise De AmorosaFramboise De Amorosa

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Thanks to eyebereej for sending this particular bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Peg's snifter.

A: Deep hazy red with lots of visible carbonation and a two-finger foamy off-white head.

S: Tart, acetic, and fruity - sour cherries and raspberries - with moderate funk undertones.

T: Significant tartness up front. I get both acetic and lactic in near-equal balance. Sour raspberries, some funk, and a bit of barnyard. Finishes fairly dry with the lingering sourness.

M: Medium to a bit light-bodied. Good carbonation sensation. It seems a little hot for the style, but the ABV is higher than many similar beers - and it doesn't affect drinkability.

O: This was very good. I felt like it wasn't quite as complex as the best fruited sours, and the increased alcohol heat seemed a little out of place. But still quite enjoyable.
