Framboise Release - Barrel Aged Raspberry Sour
Boom Room Event
Another barrel is ready! This is the return of a very popular sour from our Spontaneous Series.
The Framboise is a tart and dry Belgian style beer, spontaneously fermented in oak casks with raspberries. The fruit was added to the red wine barrels, handpicked by brewer Kevin Welch, to restart an additional fermentation within each barrel. Belgian brewers have been brewing sours in various forms in the Brussels region of Belgium for over 400 years. Following in their footsteps here in Minneapolis, Boom Island has created an authentic take on this Belgian classic.
Boom Island’s Spontaneous Series pays homage to some of the most ancient of Belgian brewing traditions, dating back over 400 years.
Framboise – 4.8% ABV
Appearance – Red Rose to Ruby hue with a quickly dissipating head (due to the spontaneous fermentation)
Flavor – Slightly acidic and tart, with a lightly effervescent body and dry crown.
Limited 750 bottles.
