Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This 4.2% sessionable sour is truly a product of creativity, ingenuity, and luck. In the summer of 2013 we took a test batch of our sessional sour summer ale, Provincial, that didn’t quite hit gravity, and decided to have some fun with it! We added a heavy dose of raspberries. The end result was so delicious, we decided to recreate it! This delightfully tart fruit beer is refreshing, with a citrusy raspberry aroma which transitions to a subtlety sweet and tart finish.

Notes of lemon zest and tart raspberries.

Poured from 330ml bottle into glass. Bottling date is marked as '2016.09.20'.
Clear, red amber colored body. Each pour results in a piled on white head, which recedes quite rapidly. No lacing left behind.
Aroma is deep raspberry, no funk or sour aspects are presented.
Taste is a mix of sweet and funky raspberry. Not sour nor tart. The raspberry is presented in a full spectrum of flavor that represents the fruit well.
Medium mouth feel. High carbonation. Rather dry and tight (more than tart) in the taste profile.
Each sip is an experience of highly carbonated true raspberry fruit taste, as can be expected from a fermented drink.

Pours raspberry-hued rose slightly cloudy with a quickly fading head. Looks delicious.

Smells absolutely delicious- red raspberries, lemon, citrus.

Taste is raspberry- lemony tartness, slightly sweet, citrus bitterness into a tart/clean finish. Decent flavor if not quite tart enough.

Very light body on the palate, 3/10 on a tartness scale, so while it’s delicious it comes off either very sessionable or somewhat watery.

Enjoying it but would like something a little more substantial in body.

Reddish violet in color with just a wisp of off white head. The nose is all raspberries and is very forward. I'm tasting plenty of raspberries, but it's not as tart as the nose implies. The mouth is acidic, crisp, and moderately carbonated.
