pFriem Family Brewers New Avenues Blend #1
What the brewers say
"Offers notes of Riesling, pine, marzipan, and blackberry jam."
What our panel thought
"Fruit character pops out of the glass. Grapes just balance the strong berry notes. Light funk, medium acidity. The marionberry and Riesling play off each other, and the raspberry doesn’t overpower. Approachable and drinkable."
What our editors thought
"Rich dark raspberry and a light vinous note combine for a light red-wine note in the nose backed by just a touch of lambic-style funk. The sip is dark, rich, savory, umami, and slightly sweet—a textural experience on top of the rich taste."
