Raspberry beer has a vibrant red colour and a fine white head. The beer has a full raspberry fruit nose, a balance of sweet and sour fruit on the palate and a wildly refreshing zesty finish. The beer is brewed with malted barley and malted wheat, and is fermented with a rare warmth loving yeast.
Secondary fermentation of sugars in the raspberries promote a shrill acidity on the palate giving the beer a refreshing tang that makes it an ideal cleansing digestif, and which has won it a dedicated fan base.
Raspberry beer is good with chocolate based sweets, fresh fruits, soft cheeses or with spiced curries. Whilst the fruit means this beer actually gets better with age.
