Birrificio Del Ducato "Frambozschella" Saison w/ Raspberries, Italy (750ml)

SKU #1199260

From the brewery: "The idea of this beer comes from a previous collaboration with Sebastian Sauer (Braustelle, Freigeist, The Monarchy) during a visit to our brewery in October 2013. Sebastian is a young brewer Cologne, eclectic and imaginative. Since both go crazy for sour beers, our partnership could only go in that direction. Both wanted to use raspberries: as a basis Sebastian had assumed a sort of Berliner Weiss fermented with lactic acid bacteria, but I wanted to ferment the juice directly into the wood (as I do for Chrysopolis). In the end we decided to opt for a compromise: direct fermentation in barrel with a small addition of lactic acid bacteria. The inoculum of lactic acid bacteria was done after a few days, just when the fermentation was starting spontaneously. After 6 months, the beer was extracted from the barrel and put to mature in a vat where were added raspberries and green beer. These additions promote a second fermentation, the convection currents that are generated increase exchanges between fruit and liquid, also raspberries make a characteristic sourness."

Additional Information:



- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
