COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You might think this is a Russian style girly beer (a little Nabokov for you), but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces (the little guys who give us that tart zing) and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish.

This special version was treated with Jasmine Green Tea and first available at Belgian Fest 2012

Draft at Belgian Fest. Neat beer to get a chance to try. Pours a nice looking pinkish bronze with a pinkish head. Nose shows raspberry, firm lactic acidity, faint earthy brett. Some tea notes come through as well. Jasmine overall restrained in the nose. On tasting, quite tart with a pronounced bitterness and light astringency. Very dry finish. Raspberries come through but are more restrained than anticipated. Light bodied, light tea flavor. Interesting beer.

Draft on tap at Belgian Fest (Chicago, IL). Pours a deep copper hue, healthy glow with oranges edges. Just a kiss of haze, loose whitish head dies to a loose ring, laces small. Aromas are raspberries and tannic skins, fruit, sour and lactic with some distinct mellow jasmine. Earthy green tea, bit of oak, herbal kiss. Some berries grow, touch of oak, and mellow sweet malts die out. Vanilla, lactic, sour raspberries. Initial is mellow bodied, with gentle sourness growing. Big earthy woody green tea element, earth, gentle jasmine mellow spice. Really makes an impression, middle is raspberry pulp, touch of barrel, and some dryness. Backend offers more tartness, sour raspberries, lactic elements. Gentle oak, tartness, raspberry skins really linger. Good flavors,e arthy tea really sticks throughout, woody and earthy into finish and lingering. Really nice. Considerably different than regular Lolita.
