COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Witbier, 8% ABV, sour mashed 1-2 days, and fermented with a blend of Berliner Weisse culture and Belgian Witbier yeast. The beer is barrel fermented in large red wine barrels (132 gal. barrels). Raspberries are added to the beer towards the end of fermentation directly to the barrel, and aged on the raspberries for a minimum of 1 month. The Berliner culture contains souring bacteria and the raspberries will add acidity to the beer. Brewed to commemorate Bottleworks 12th Anniversary.
Originally brewed in 2011. Rebrewed in 2013.

Pretty nice stuff. Citrus and some apricot. Some guava as well. One of the better Bruery beers I’ve had due to focus on balance here, above all. Hazy orange pour. Tangy finish. Bottle at tasting.

2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. Really enjoyed this one! Hazy golden orange pour, maybe a pink tinge, under a nice off-white head, good lacing. Light fruity aroma, sourness, a bit of oak and vanilla. Great flavor, sourness is apparent, nice oak and vanilla, loads of raspberry. I dig it!
