Framboise For A Cure

Sour beer, wild beer or whatever you want to call it, people are really passionate about the specifics of this style. Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus are mostly the usual suspects found in these beers, giving them their unique sour qualities. Russian River makes this little number and they have an outstanding track record for beer of this kind. Aged in Chardonnay Barrels and a ton of fresh raspberries (30 LBS per barrel!), its an all around flavor bomb.
Tart, puckery and sweet all at the same time, practically every taste bud is aroused.
This outstanding beer also serves a higher purpose as 100% of the profits go to Breast Cancer Awareness. It comes out once a year, so if ya see it give it a whirl!
