Imperial Witbier, 8% ABV, sour mashed 1-2 days, and fermented with a blend of Berliner Weisse culture and Belgian Witbier yeast. The beer is barrel fermented in large red wine barrels (132 gal. barrels). Raspberries are added to the beer towards the end of fermentation directly to the barrel, and aged on the raspberries for a minimum of 1 month. The Berliner culture contains souring bacteria and the raspberries will add acidity to the beer. Brewed to commemorate Bottleworks 12th Anniversary.
Originally brewed in 2011. Rebrewed in 2013.

Bottle from RS membership at Klamath. Aroma and flavor is raspberries, Brett funk and wheat. Palate is pretty fizzy, but it's also effective. I guess I was looking for something a bit more smooth. Idk, very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours dark orange. Sweet, raspberry fruit on the nose. Tart, funkyness on the nose. Big sour up front, a nice hit of raspberry, then a finishing funk and lingering sour quality.

another neat bottle offered at post farmhouse ale bash. possibly hooked up by adam jackson, though my memory is a bit foggy on the origins of this bottled brew. some kind of imperial berliner weiss with raspberries @ a red wine barrel. seems nice enough.
