COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
(Previously labeled Raspberry Lambic). Raspberries have a sweet tartness to them already, so they make a perfect pairing with sour ales. Our Raspberry fruited ale has a fresh berry aroma with a touch of floral and wine-like notes, followed by a rich raspberry flavor. Reddish in hue with a pink foam appear upon pouring, with zesty amounts of carbonation. Finish is dry, with mouth-watering tanginess and raspberry flavor. (Old 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

Bottled. An unclear golden beer with the meat of lemons and oranges floating around and with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of citrusy fruits. The flavor has notes of lemons, sweet malt, and other fruits. Raspberries?

Leighton (22327) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 Bottle at Beerwarming Party. Pours a very cloudy gold with a filmy, white head. Tart berry aroma with light yeast. Flavor is sour throughout, lightly sweet, with berry notes, especially tart, bitter strawberry. Light to medium in body with high, fine carbonation. Finishes sour, clean and dry. Pretty nice. (August 2010, score 3.8)

Bottle shared at the Scopey 5K tasting. Cheers! Pours murky dark purple with a creamy, white head. Big acetic raspberry aroma. Very sour, quite cleansing, with moderate acidity and jammy raspberry. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with tart raspberries and acetic burn. Ballsy stuff. Enjoyable in small doses. (February 2014, score 3.5)

Koelschtrinker (21492) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Die Fruchtnoten wirken schon zu Beginn eher künstlich, immerhin nicht zu süß. Die Säuerlichkeit ist nur schwach ausgeprägt, geht aber gerade noch in Ordnung. Im Vergleich zu den anderen Upland Bieren vertragen sich Säure und Frucht hier aber weniger. Zum Ende eher herb als sauer, trocken. Gelungenes Bier, das aber durchaus noch Verbesserungspotential hat. 5/7/8/9/12/8
