COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BrewDog Collabfest 2013.
Our Newcastle team were originally fancying a raspberry porter, but ended up opting for a raspberry saison because its a bit more exotic and thats what you need to keep you warm on the Toon quayside. Having just returned from a trip to Belgium, brewer Steve Gibbs was keen to put what hed learned into action and took this as an opportunity to experiment. This being the first time Steve had used saison yeast, he decided to use a 50/50 mix of saison and ale yeast to get the proper saison flavours but also allow allow him a degree of certainty when fermenting.

Keg at Brewdog shoreditch. Ruby red pour with not much of a head. Aroma is fresh raspberry slight tart. Flavour is berry raspberry tartness. Tart in the finish, but sweet initially. Some season yeast characteristics in the background, but mostly raspberry.

maneliquor (3495) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2013
Tap at BD Shoreditch. Pours dark mahogony with a purple tint to it. No head at all. Nose is very ripe raspberries and light spice. Fresh and sweet raspberry is in your face with a hint of darker berries - blackberries. Blackcurrant juice-like sort of stuff. A very dry finish with a hint of spice. Not too bad

Scopey (13309) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Shoreditch. It pours deep brown with a minimal white head. The nose is sweet tangy raspberry, jammy, light toast and cherry drops. The taste is fresh raspberry, tangy, toast, green apple, light spice, candy and hay with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. No great depth. But pretty tasty.
