COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 2006, I brewed 300 gallons of top-fermented beer using wild yeast to create a Belgian-style Lambic. We conditioned the beer in oak casks and then initiated a secondary fermentation in the casks using whole fruit from Huber’s Orchard in Starlight, Indiana. You should experience a tart, almost sour taste balanced by the aromatic and richly flavorful addition of whole raspberries - perfect to share with friends, and a platter of good cheese and fresh fruit. - Caleb Staton, Head Brewer

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 3, 2009
75cl bottle shared by YGTBSM. Mostly pink color with a hint of orange and a small head. Bright raspberry, with tart acidity, light funk, and a bit of cranberry in the aroma. Light berry sweetness balanced by a light tartness. Not as sour as the blueberry, and richer in the finish. Lightly carbonated but enough to move it over the palate. Mild, but pretty tasty stuff.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle shared via psprings @ the Hellbilly Hellraiser 3.0 Tasting...THANKS PAUL!!! Ruby red grapefruit in color without a head to speak of. Aroma is of sour, unripened fruit. Again, can’t really distinguish that this is raspberry...but tasty. Lemon zest, vinegar, and funk. Not thick and viscous, not thin and watery. Right down the middle.

AmEricanbrew (6722) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 10, 2009
2008 bottle. Briliant amber color with a slight white head. Good aroma is barnyard lite, with tart fruit and wood. Prickly carbonation and mildly sour throughout. Lightly sweet raspberry flesh flavor with leather and moldy wood notes. This one should have been aged longer.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Batch 1 shared by MrBendo! Thanks Todd! Popped the cork and lots of foam- gusher like- nice fluffy foamy head on top of a murky hazy deep amber violet body. Aroma is nice tart raspberries, tons of lacto and brett horsey funk- cross between a farmhousey earthy funk and a lambic sour funk- moderate wood and oak as well. Flavor is a bit more oaky with a bit phenolic and vanilla - tons of fresh tart raspberries that give a nice sharp bite on the tongue- almost a bit prickly and tons of lactic lambic-like funk- sour finish. Awesome.
