Lolita is a pink rose colored Belgian style pale ale fermented with wild yeast and aged on raspberries in wine barrels. Aromas of fresh raspberries, bright jammy fruit flavors and crisp, refreshing body make Lolita ideal for beer drinkers fond of Belgian Framboise.

Slightly musty and very tart in aroma. The flavor is extremely tart and mildly sweet fruit. Very biting in the tartness, definitely not for everyone but this was awesome to me.

Bottle at tasting. Amber red pour, quickly dissipating head. Aroma has fresh raspberries up front, acetic and vinegary, brettanomyces notes, oak, a hint of malts and caramel, but mainly the bretty funkiness along with the fresh fruity sweetness. Taste is rather sour, vinegar, the tartness comes off somewhat astringent, the brettanomyces is very pronounced, and of course a good deal of raspberries covers the whole palate. I think this beer does well when it comes to the raspberry freshness as well as the brettanomyces notes in the aroma. But the astringency that comes with the tartness is a turn off.

This beer pours a light bodied Rose pink in color with a lot of carbonation and a quickly dissipating off white head. The nose features a touch of sweet raspberry before becoming very dry and offering aromas of oak aging and Brett. It’s very Belgian on the nose. It’s nice and features more berry as it warms. The flavors too begin with soft fresh raspberry sweetness before becoming very dry and tart. I get a good amount of Brett. It has nice flavor and no aspect is over the top. It drinks very light in body with a good amount of carbonation. Overall this is a nice, drinkable sour with intriguing flavors. If this was cheaper it would be far more appealing but I don’t think I’d buy much of this at 18.99. Nice beer though. Hopefully the other two sisters are available here soon.

Sort of a long term want of mine, kind of weird because I was pointing out a bottle of Cider I liked to my wife at a local grocery store tonight, to which she replied "the Lolita?"... no shit?!?! Lolita right there on a grocery store shelf in Des Moines fucken Iowa? Gracious me! Welp I was going to enter my 2000th tonight, so why not use thisn’ here to do it with.

Pours a reddish orange with a medium sized tight white head that fades into a small white head for a while, then fades into nothingness after a while.

The aroma is the primary beauty of this beer, for a raspberry beer this is basically as perfect as it gets, that gorgeous smell of fresh earthy raspberry takes me back to being a child and picking excess berries off my neighbors bushes. There is a lot of raspberry character in this beer, but it’s beautiful how it hardly smells sweet, like real raspberries... the sweetness is implied in the aroma but never do they smell overly sweet or sugary. At first the barn-yard funk is mild but as the beer warms the funk takes center stage putting the berry in the background which is also very nice.

The flavor is almost a a disappointment compared to the aroma, although the flavor is still very good. The beer is tart and dry and not unlike dry rose wine. The raspberry is jammy but not as brilliant or true as the aroma is. There is a little bit of spicy alcohol that does seem to compliment the other flavors pretty well.

I feel like a higher carbonation level here would have served the palate better but it wasn’t bad with a lower carbonation.

Wonderful beer.

Vintage 2010: Bottled 12/04/10. 650ml. brown bottle many thanks to Pierre-Luc and Julien. Ale brewed with raspberries aged in wine barrels. Salmon-orange with a white head. The nose is very appealling with red wine (pinot noir) and strawberry. I very like this nose. The taste is wonderfull with wine, pinot, raspberry. There is some oak as-well. This is an easy drinking beer by it’s acidity. One of the best.

In short: An easy to drink, very dry and a bit funky raspberry beer. Very good
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed approximately 6 months after bottling date. Bottle sent to me by FullObs, thanks a lot Brett
The look: Partly cloudy rust-color body with a quickly dissipating head (with a “psssssss….”) like a pink cola
In long: Nose has a lot of raspberry seeds, some leathery funk, some fresh raspberries. Taste is more is also dominated by raspberry seeds (or dried raspberries), lemon zest, some cherry skin, mild barnyard funk. A little sweetness on the attack but the beer quickly turns quite dry with an almost sandy finish. Fizzy carbonation. Somewhat light body. Mild sourness, medium acidity, medium harsh sandy dryness, rather astringent. This beer is thankfully not pushing the envelop and remains very easy to drink for a sour ale, it is borderline sessionnable. This is a beer that I liked more and more and I was drinking it more and more quickly as I was drinking my 22oz bottle, usually the reverse happens to me with sour ales. Another beer I’d like to drink on a regular basis, if it is true that my body is my temple, then clearly my god is a sadist who demands a lot beer sacrifices.
