FRAMBOISE DU NORD

BEER STYLE: Berliner Weisse

ALCOHOL BY VOLUME: 3.7%

CHARACTERISTICS: Neon red in color with a slight haze and a large creamy pink foam head. This beer is rather light on the palate and very dry. A lively carbonation accentuates the refreshingly tart acidity and a full raspberry flavor with a subtle hint of brett character.

A Berliner Weisse is often served with a shot of raspberry syrup stirred in – to cut down on the intense sourness – turning it into a refreshingly sweet-sour beverage. Framboise du Nord, the second release in the Noble Star Collection, puts a unique twist on this tradition by refermenting our Berliner Weisse with raspberries, similar to a Belgian fruit lambic. Five thousand pounds of raspberries were added to Star of the North, the first Berliner Weisse beer released in the Noble Star Collection. It then fermented for an additional four months. The result is a remarkably vibrant and flavorful beer, that is refreshingly tart, dry, and bursting with raspberry flavor.
