BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Yards Brewing Co.
Pennsylvania, United States | website

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Fall

Notes / Commercial Description:
We brew each batch with over 3,000 pounds of fresh raspberries and both sour and sweet cherries. The addition of fruit prior to fermentation makes this crisp ale tart instead of sweet. It’s pink in color of course, light-bodied, and refreshing with delicate, delectable berry aromas. We’ll bet the farm that there’s no better autumn seasonal around.

I’m very glad I got to try this beer. I think it is supposed to be Yards’ interpretation of a Framboise Lambic and I applaude them for the effort – and for the product. The beer was served in a traditional Belgium chalice and the color alone really made me stop and admire this beer. It was a light ruby red, very clear and was topped with a creamy pink head. There’s a slightly sweet, slightly sour tart aroma. The taste is fine with raspberry juice, cherries, oranges and plums prominent. Tangy sweet, light and refreshing with a dry finish.

This beer reminds of a simple light lager with raspberry juice, but it’s a little more complex than that. Very interesting.

Wow, what an interesting beer. It is a light red, from what appears to be the combination of a gold beer base with the red coming from the fruit.

The basic flavor is very crisp. In the aftertaste, there is definitely an intentional sourness from the bacteria lambic style fermentation. The fruit is not heavy handed. It doesn't cover up the sourness, more leads into it. In this way, it is not a Lindemans style lambic. In a way this is rather nice as the super sweet fruit beer is pretty standard now.

All in all an interesting experiment. It won't make most people see god, but damn finely crafted.
