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.

375ml bottle (2013 release). Pours a reddish copper color with a slightly pinkish head. Acidic, tart, nice amount of raspberry flavor comes through, some oak. Another very well done sour from RRBC. Great beer for a great cause. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots and lots of pours at GABF. Nice reddish pink color, white head with pink tinges. Raspberries, yogurt,sour goodness! Just a very well balanced and juicy sour. Id say this was the best rendition since batch 1. Awesome.

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.

ebone1988 (1426) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20, Travis, and Doug. Aroma is raspberry, funk, tart, really nice. Appearance is red pink, light pink head, floaties throughout. Taste is raspberry, tart, funky, lots of barnyard, dry. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, raspberry funk aftertaste. Overall, this one is outstanding.
