Blonde Ale aged in Chardonnay barrels with brett, lacto, and pedio (base beer is Temptation). This sour barrel-aged blonde ale has 30 pounds per barrel of fresh raspberries to make a beautiful reddish/pink beer! Nicely balanced with sweet raspberry and tartness. This beer is made only once a year in conjunction with our month-long fundraiser for the Sutter Breast Care Center of Santa Rosa during Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 100% of the proceeds of this beer will be used to help men and women in our community in their fight against breast cancer!

2013 & 2014 Info: The base was 80% Temptation and 20% Sonambic blend. It was about 7 or 8 weeks on the fruit at around one pound/gallon.

Vestergaard (1004) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a cloudy orange with a small, white head. Aroma is leathery, slightly hoppy, funky, slight raspberry, cheese, extremely sour. Taste is burning sour as well, very sparkling, fruity, champagne with a hint of raspberry, oak and vanilla. Gets more fruity as it heats up. Very complex and very tart. High carb and crisp, sharp body.

I love the bright pink color of this beer with the off white to light pink head. Full, raspberry nose with the same full flavor. Very effervescent and tart throughout.
