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

ben4321 (4781) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Location: 750 ml bottle from Upland, 5/16/14, Bottled 10/9/13

Aroma: The nose is full of raspberry and yeasty funk
Appearance: It pours a dark red color with a fizzy, quickly dissipating beige head
Flavor: The flavor is rather tart and funky, quite sour, with only a minimal sweetnes
Palate: The body is medium, it has a fizzy carbonation, and a dry, mouth puckering finish
Overall Impression: This is a really nice raspberry lambic. It doesn’t get even close to being sweet, just a really enjoyable, well-made lambic. Nicely done here.

At jacob’s with group. Pour is cherry red no head. Aroma is complex sour notes, raspberry, watermelon, very nice. Taste is cherry coolade, sour raspberry, big jammy notes. This is a fantastic sour, but it’s a little acidic and is making me sweat.

Bottle from the lottery. Glowing tasty pink. Sour as fuck. Raspberry. Got a bit of funk. Holy shit is this sour. Raspberry plays well with the sour.
