Easton, PA — On Saturday, March 11th, Weyerbacher Brewing will be releasing their 2016 Riserva, an American Wild Ale.

Riserva, 10% ABV, is an American Wild Ale fermented on red raspberries. Riserva is fermented with a blend of Saccharomyces yeast, Brettanomyces yeast and lactic acid bacteria that produce funky, sour and fruity flavors and aromas.

Riserva is aged for more than a year in oak barrels with raspberries, giving the beer a pungent raspberry aroma, a lovely red color and a balancing wood character. The microflora responsible for giving Riserva its character reside in the wood barrels and change somewhat over time depending upon factors such as the age of the barrel and the ambient temperature at which the barrels are stored. New barrels are rotated into the mix as old barrels are rotated out and as such, Riserva varies somewhat in color and tartness from year to year. Riserva is much higher in alcohol than its Belgian lambic framboise cousins and is a true treat to experience. Each year, the microflora produce a slightly different beer so we vintage date them.

Riserva will be released to the public on Saturday, March 11th at The Tap Room at Weyerbacher Brewing beginning at 12 pm. It will also be available throughout the distribution area.
