On Saturday, March 31, join us at the tasting room for the release of Spontané Framboise, a coolship-fermented sour ale bursting with fresh raspberry flavor. More than 700 pounds of raspberries were added to a blend of 18 month old spontaneously-fermented wild ales, resulting in a funky, sour, jammy, truly wild ale that will continue to age well for years to come.
A framboise is a traditional Belgian lambic-style sour that is fermented using raspberries. The style takes a great deal of time and patience to create as the mixed-fermentation base beer needs to develop a great depth of flavor to accompany the natural fruit flavor of the raspberries. Spontané Framboise pours deep red, smells of spring and tastes like you’re biting into a freshly picked raspberry.
We’ll have 300 bottles available starting Saturday at noon for $20 a piece; limit 6. Any Wild Mind branded 750ml bottles are eligible for a fill after bottles have sold out. Forgotten Barrel Society members can get in early to buy bottles starting at 11:30. Two kegs of the framboise will be on tap, as well as a special firkin aged on blackberries, marionberries, vanilla, and cinnamon. It won’t last long though, so hurry in this weekend!
