COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Holy balls thatís sour. Rose is color, fizzy, no head, super funk in the nose along with raspberries, cherries, and cranberry. The fruit flavor is there at the heart of it and thatís a beautiful thing. Digging it for sure.

Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy medium amber color with an off white head. Aroma is tart, dry, sweet berries. Flavor packs a huge sour, sour berries, slight sweetness in the back. Tart lingers long into the finish. Tingling on the tongue. Absolutely fantastic!

í13 vintage bottle. Golden pour with subtle pinkish hues and a white head. Sour raspberry bouquet. Wowzers, that is one tart tata saver. Copious sour raspberry notes dominate. Undercurrents of caramel malts, oak, and vanilla. Maybe some vinous hints. Good body and mouthfeel.

beernbourbon (1547) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle from my boy Jarod, thanks man! Pour is clear pink with a thin pink foam. Aroma is sugary raspberry with light funk and light tartness. Aroma is wonderful. Flavor is sweet and tart up front with a distinct raspberry kick followed by more tartness and sweetness. Just a little NutraSweet flavor in there that i donít love. Overall very nice though.

Pours a very dark pink almost red color with pink head. Raspberries, and lots of them, with some oak, light fruited chardonnay wine, and funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry. Rivals Atrial Rubicite from Jester King.

Bottle tanks to a trade! Pours a clear reddish pink with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a great sweet raspberry note with a bit of yogurt and a growing tartness. Flavor is much more sour with raspberry backed by a nice funk with a touch of yogurt.
