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

Smell and taste is really deep raspberry. Sometimes Upland can taste like vinegar, but not this bottle. Liked it better than raspberry Cantillons if that tells you anything. Light to medium body, light sharp carbonation, and mild fizzy foam.

Thanks! 750 ml. split / sampled @’t Schooltje. 10.9.13 Vintage. Deep dark raspberry, vibrant, no head. Nose is insane raspberry, puckering, strongly lactic, lemon sourness quality to the fruit but very vibrant, real fruit, all the same, touch mineral,… Taste is same amazing, vibrant lactic, touch vinegar, lemon puckering raspberry, very tart & puckering but the fruit is immense, lingering sourness with some raspberry pits in the back,… Body is puckering ,drinks amazingly well despite the sourness. Really awesome.

Thanks to Bobby91w for a sample. This was incredibly impressive. Pour is bubbly light brown red with a small white head. Aroma is raspberry, funky and wild yeast. Flavor is tart raspberry, barnyard funk, brett, wild yeast. Has a clean, crisp aftertaste that makes u want more.

Rasberries and cherries in aroma. Fruits came through in flavor and the added wild yeast made this grew exceptional. Dry and fruity finish.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a dark red to purple with a light pink head of foam. Big tart raspberry aroma. Tastes of sour red raspberry. Lingering sour, bright raspberry in the finish. Great beer.

Bottle. Pours bright red with minimal white head. Aroma is very funky, oaky, lots of raspberry. May be my ideal smelling beer, it’s so aromatic and well balanced with funk and berry. Taste is very sour throughout, high carbonation, lots of raspberry. Overall, an absolutely delicious beer!

750ml bottle, batch 1 courtesy of MrBendo. Light gusher. Poured a deeper orangish-reddish-golden-amber (can you tell I couldn’t quite nail down the color) with a large sized head. Some floaters. Aromas of raspberries, woody, vanilla, and some brett funkiness. Tastes of raspberries, vanilla, lighter woodiness, and again some brett funkiness. Nice sour and tart finish. Yep, raspberries is still my favorite for beer...

Poured hazy pinkish red from bottle with slightly pink head, aroma of pureed fresh raspberries, oak, tart apple and a touch of funk. Taste up front is sweet raspberries, touch of tartness from them before the lacto blast hits, big sour, with a slightly sweet but mostly dry finish from the oak. Awesome stuff.
