Fort Collins, CO. – In early March, Odell Brewing will release Brazzle Sour Golden Raspberry Ale. Part of the brewery’s Cellar Series, Brazzle is an oak aged golden ale brewed with golden raspberries.
“We used golden raspberries to brew with, which gives this sour a touch of sweetness. There is also a bright, tart fruit and citrus flavor that comes through,” said Barrel Aging/Pilot System Manager, Brent Cordle. “The sour acidity plays well with the raspberry flavor. This is a very unique sour, and WELL worth the wait!”
The base beer in Brazzle is a crisp golden ale that was aged and soured in former Woodcut barrels for a little over two years. 300 pounds of raspberries were added before and after the barrel aging process, giving the beer both a puckering tartness and a hint of raspberry sweetness.
Brazzle is offered in 750 ml, cork and cage finished bottles, and will be available within the brewery’s eleven state distribution area this spring. Odell Brewing will celebrate the release of Brazzle in the Tap Room February 27th – March 1st. Guests can enjoy samples of the beer, and live music on Sunday afternoon. A special Welsh Rabbit cheese pairing plate will also be available for purchase (while supplies last). For more details on the beer and the Tap Room release party, please visit the brewery’s blog.
