Snoqualmie brews small batches of “Brewer’s Choice” ales served periodically in their taproom. To make this summer ale, raspberries picked locally on Mt. Si are pressed to juice that is added after the primary fermentation. The result is less than stellar in my view, and doesn’t enhance Snoqualmie’s menu. Rye beers are tart and dry by design. But here the rye seems overplayed, making for an ale that strains the mouthfeel and falls outside my range of preference.

The light, airy aroma of raspberries is detectable yet timid. The juice adjunct contributes nothing to the honey-amber color and fails to distinguish itself as a defining flavor.

Not a bad beer really, but it doesn’t ring my bell. Perhaps more raspberries next time. Don’t be shy.
