Brainless Raspberries (Release #1) – Epic Brewing Company (Utah)

Limited Release

From Epic Brewing Company out of Salt Lake City, Utah (not to be confused with the brewery in New Zealand with the exact same name) comes their limited release bomber “Brainless Raspberries (Release #1)” a Belgian Style Golden Ale.  The ale pours a reddish/orange colour with a lightly pink head.  The aroma is basically just tart raspberry jam.  The flavour consists of tart raspberries, malty undertones with a decent sweetness and maybe a hint of yeast.  The alcohol content of this brew is 9.7% but you will not taste the alcohol or feel its warming effects.  This would be a great beer to have with your dinner but not one to drink larger quantities due to the sweetness.

Commercial Description:  We put our Brainless® Belgian-style golden ale into stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days with raspberry puree for a secondary fermentation.  Hints of raspberry bubble gum flavors from the Belgian yeast and fresh raspberries tease the pallet.  The raspberries give a generous color contribution including a trace of pink to the lacing, as well as a pleasant tartness that lasts until the final sip.


The Malts/Sugars/Fruits:  Premium Weyermann Pilsner, Ultra-Premium Muntons Maris Otter, Light Candy Sugar, Briess 2- Row Carapils Malt, Flaked Oats and Muntons Wheat Malt.
