2015 Cascade Brewing "Framblanc" Ale Aged in Oak Barrels w/ White Raspberries, Oregon (750ml)

SKU #1281644

From the brewery: "Introducing the first-ever bottling of this new project, Framblanc is a blend of sour blond and triple ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 15 months with white raspberries. This blend begins by putting our base blond and triple ales into freshly emptied chardonnay barrels, where they undergo the souring process and pick up subtle flavors of chardonnay and white wine lees. After several months of aging, we add fresh white raspberries at the peak of ripeness from a farm located less than 10 miles from our Blending House facility. The fruit is fermented in the beer and allowed to age for several more months until complete maturity of flavor is achieved. We blend these fruited barrels with hand-selected barrels of sour triple (non-fruited) from our cellar to reach the ideal balance of fruit, oak, acidity and sweetness. We are proud to begin offering this once limited, draft-only project in bottle format! "

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

Oregon

- Highly touted for its Pinot Noirs, Oregon is part of the up-and-coming winemaking industry in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Most of Oregon is directly affected by the climate coming off of the Pacific Ocean, giving it mild winters and wet summers. This makes it a difficult place to ripen grapes, but some say that the harder grapes have to struggle, the more complex they will turn out to be. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are two important and successful grapes grown in Oregon.
