Craft Brew Alliance’s Appalachian Mountain Brewery Releases Raspise Berliner Weiss

BOONE, N.C. Appalachian Mountain Brewery released the newest beer in their Sour Series: Raspise, a Berliner Weiss bursting with raspberry and mint flavors. Raspise is currently available on draft and in six packs of 12-ounce cans for a limited time across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

The beer, at 5.3% ABV, is a vibrant refresher made with warm late-summer days and nights in mind. Raspise features a perfect balance of flavors – a wheat kettle sour offset by a slight sweetness from added raspberry purée and fresh, whole leaf spearmint, which grows thick as weeds in the High Country.

“Our sour program has really ramped up over the last several years and we are happy to see the Sour Series roll on with the second canned release, Raspise,” said AMB Brewmaster Nathan Kelischek. “Raspberry and mint flavors go so well together and we wanted to capture that by adding them to a Berliner Weiss.”

Raspise is the second beer in AMB’s Sour Series, which is new for 2019. The first beer in the series was Margarita Gose and next up will be Slice of Paradise in the fall. Slice of Paradise is a kettle sour inspired by a Southern pie, made with raspberries, graham crackers, and cinnamon, available in time for the holiday season.
