Captain Lawrence Barrel Select Raspberry
From Captain Lawrence – A Brown ale aged in oak barrels with Brettanomyces and Raspberries. This beer uses the same base beer as the Cherry version, creating a refreshing sour ale, with an intense Raspberry aroma. This version has much more upfront fruit flavors than the milder Cherry version.
Captain Lawrence Brewing – Captain Lawrence Barrel Select Raspberry – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet.
Appearance: Pours a dark tea brown. No head.
Aroma: Fresh raspberry, funk.
Taste: Raspberries, modest toasted malt. Finishes tart.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Well done. I like this and the cherry, but probably this a bit more than the cherry. It wasn’t super complex or overly funky, but very enjoyable.
