Raspbeery – Pale Ale – 4.5% – Bottle
This refreshing summer beer is late hopped for low bitterness, and unfined to maximise flavour and retain its deep reddish hue. It’s prime time for raspberry picking, but if foraging isn’t your thing, why not kick back with our fruit bomb, Raspberry! Made with real fruit and packed with fruity hops, this is a beer you could mistake for one of your 5-a-day.
Would be great on a summer’s day.
Look – hazy pink
Aroma – fruity and sour
Taste – tart, slight raspberry and blackcurrant.
Feel – medium body, quite lively
Finish – sour, light bitterness
£3.15 for 500ml from Eebria.
