Notes / Commercial Description:
2017 SPON Raspberry & Cherry is our 100% spontaneously fermented beer, refermented with cherries and raspberries. We blended four SPON barrels from 2016 (about 1,500 liters) and added 800 pounds of Washington raspberries and 800 pounds of Michigan Balaton cherries. Like 2016 SPON Mourvedre & Sangiovese, we allowed the beer to referment with the fruit to dryness, then naturally conditioned the beer in kegs and bottles resting on their side.

On tap. Ruby color. Really fruity, raspberry jam notes, light yeast funk. Sour, fruity, puckering, mineral, dry, astringent. Light body, really dry, quite effervescent.
