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

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 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.
