Brewed in celebration of our 23rd Anniversary, this American Sour Ale bares a lambic malt base and Belgian yeast character. Raspberries intermingle adding sweet fruit aroma and au-naturale earthiness to this frisky, tart birthday ale.

The beer pours an appropriately hazy deep amber with rose highlights, and a beautiful light pink head that persists. A prominent raspberry aroma jumps from the glass, and is balanced by a light earthiness, a moderate level of bready malt and a light, tart acidity. The raspberry character is a bit tamer in the flavor, but still makes its presence felt. The complementary sharp, clean lactic acidity falls in behind with light bready malt and a hint of earthy character. The acidity is not over the top, but does help to push the beer to a drier finish. A suggestion of hop bitterness emerges behind the sourness to round out the flavor. This is a refreshing, well-brewed sour ale that offers just the right balance of raspberries and sourness.
