samples on a blind taste session, invite everyone to take part in tasting notes
on each beer, and at the end, reveal the beer they just enjoyed.
Our Raspberry Rhubarb features fresh locally grown raspberries harvested from Berry
Hill Farms in Aylmer and Rhubarb from Burke's Farms just south of St.Thomas. The
combination of fresh local fruit and vegetables have never tasted so good!
The Aroma is predominantly Caramel that hits hard initially, leading the way for
toasted and baked scents reminiscent of raspberry muffins, ending with earth and
herbal notes from the hops and rhubarb - a backwards trip from oven to field.
The flavour opens with a splash of sweet and tart moving into caramel and burnt
sugar. Rich and full body marries harmoniously with the tartness of the rhubarb,
making a smooth and silky mouth feel. Finishing finds the raspberry coming initially
as jam, but building to ripe fruit with a gentle warming as the pint goes on.
Pairing Suggestions: Beef/Duck, Feta cheese, esp with oil/ Sheep Cheeses, Figs.
Best use is with a main, or after, leading to dessert.
