A Note on This Beer
Funkwerks from Fort Collins, CO makes any night of the week feel like a celebration (yes, even Mondays). This is because of beers like their GABF gold medalist Raspberry Provincial, a Belgian-style fruit Sour with 160 pounds of real raspberry puree that tastes like a glass of raspberry champagne – crisp, fruity, and oh-so bubbly.
And we’re not the only ones swooning over our new replacement for fruity fancy drinks – the BeerAdvocate Bros say that “This is Funkwerks putting magic cards in a bottle.”
Like putting an actual raspberry under your tongue and letting it dissolve, the real fruit character takes over the palate with each effervescent sip. Aromas of sweet raspberry jam fill your senses before diving into a rose-tinted glass of sparkling berry lemonade. Soft wheat biscuit notes and citrus juice provide a playground for the tangy and sweet sides of fresh raspberries. A floral hint of rose petals round out the zesty lemon berry notes, finishing ultra-dry.
So next time you’re breaking out the flutes for a celebratory “cheers” to Monday night, skip the champagne with fruit combo – you can have it all in one glass with Raspberry Provincial. Sip at 45 degrees with your pinky out – the higher you hold it, the fancier you are.
