SAN MARCOS, Calif.–Most recently awarded a silver medal at the 2014 World Beer Cup (American Sour category), The Lost Abbey’s raspberry sour, Framboise de Amorosa, is making it’s return for 2015.
Starting with Lost Abbey’s Lost and Found (Abbey Dubbel w/ Raisins) as a base, then aged in Red Wine barrels with over 30lbs of Raspberry’s added per barrel, Framboise de Amorosa accentuates the tartness and richness of the berry while complimenting the sweetness with funk from the Brettanomyces.
