5.7% ABV | 750ml | Aged Saison on Raspberries
How sweet the barbed harvest, thorny barbs cross our skin, and trade blood for sweet ichor, signed gladly in red, the raspberry pact.
Process & tasting notes: This saison is aged in wine barrels for over one year, and refermented on local, whole raspberries grown in the Twenty Valley.
We chose these raspberries from a single farm for their intensity and depth of flavour. The berries not only showed excellent acidity and quintessential raspberry taste, but also something indescribably and pleasantly earthy of which we can't get enough.
We selected some of our funkier barrels to referment this fruit. The combination of aged saison and raspberries brings big aromas of fruit, with underlying notes of barnyard earth, vanilla oak, mineral lime, and bloomy rind. The Raspberry Pact (2021) has a tart but restrained acidity, and a bone-dry finish.
We are happy to have preserved such excellent raspberries in this form, and hope you will enjoy this beer as much as we do in laughter and in stillness.
Serving suggestions: Enjoy in a white wine glass.
