The Twitter Chat


This beer is designed to replicate the flavors of rhubarb raspberry pie. The recipe encourages sweetness balanced by tartness, intense fruit character, and a “graham cracker-like crust” flavor. The high gravity, high mash temperature and choice of specialty malts encourages residual sweetness, while the rhubarb and semi-wild wood fermentation will encourage tartness. The yeast selection will also add other fruit-like elements, and the esters will add to the perception of sweetness. Additional blending may occur prior to packaging to either encourage additional sweetness or tartness.
