COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thirty miles north of Barrelworks lies the fertile Santa Maria Valley. Its warm days and cool marine layer-fed evenings allow for a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables to be grown in its rich soil. One of Santa Maria’s crown jewels is locally grown raspberries. We jumped at the opportunity to ferment fresh local raspberries with one of our Barrelworks creations. Behold Bretta Rosé! A low-alcohol Berliner Weisse style ale, acidified and matured in French oak puncheons for 6 months, is the foundation for this gem. Add 1000 lbs. of fresh raspberries, allow a secondary wild fermentation for 4 more months and voila (!), we have a crisp effervescent concoction, bursting with raspberry perfume and flavor, a rosé color, bracing acidity, and a clean and refreshing finish.

Aroma of mango, papaya, cherry, heavy raspberry, and some caramel sweetness. Taste is sour raspberry, brett, bread, and cherry. There's also a nice bitterness, but that only comes through once the acidity recedes.

Pours reddish orange with a white head. The aroma has funk, cherries, spice and vanilla. It has a light crisp body with sharp carbonation. The taste has the aroma notes and has incredible balance and spice. Nice earthy herbal finish too.

On tap at Firestone Walker The Propagator, Venice. A 9 oz pour into a Firestone Barrelworks teku glass. It was a nice looking candy cherry red colour with minimal white head, but nice lacing. Aroma was a very nice Lifesaver candy cherry and raspberries. Tastes similar to the aroma with lots of cherry and raspberries. It is also lightly sour and tart with only hints of oak and funk. Crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, just really good, just like sour candy. I could easily drink this all day.
