My second beer of the night. This is also beer number 364 for the year. This is from the growler that my sister picked up at Triumph last week. I tasted hers at the restaurant and I was pretty impressed. I wasn’t aware of how high alcohol it was though. Anyways, I figure that this will really hit the spot while I watch Food Network. My sister and I are now obsessed with the Food Network. I’m also going to be making pulled pork this weekend (using the new smoker) and I’m very excited. So, onto the brew…
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: Here are some interesting facts about raspberries, “The medical benefits of raspberries include: They do not have any fat, saturated fat, sodium or cholesterol, they are high in fiber, vitamin C, potassium and folate, they can help lower high blood pressure and raspberries have an anti-inflammatory property that may help to reduce inflammation of the joints.”
Random: I love watching any sort of competition food show. I love watching how people cook under pressure.
The brew poured with almost no head, except for a hint of white on top of the cloudy reddish body. Due to the color, there was no visible carbonation. This looked like a liquid raspberry. The nose was just some tart raspberries. I didn’t get much else. The taste was a lot of raspberries, but mostly tart at the start and then with a hint of sweetness. I think that some of the carbonation dissipated from the age of the growler. I remember this being much more fresh and carbonated and I definitely enjoyed it more when I first had it. The brew was also a touch thicker than one would expect from a fruit beer. The booze was very hidden and the finish was all raspberry. I definitely enjoyed the beer when I first had it, although the flavor has definitely decreased in satisfaction since sitting in the fridge. I would definitely get this again and kill it while it was fresh. If you find yourself at Triumph, grab one of these.
