Standard Brewing Weeping Hand
What the brewers say
Wild ale aged on raspberries, bottle-conditioned.
What our panel thought
Deep raspberry aroma. Notes of blackberry and cherry. Light acidity. In the flavor, fruit is well represented and in the forefront. Very late in the retronasal, a bit of unexpected malty graham cracker gives a bit of a pie/cobbler character to the beer. Mild acid flavor. Very fruit-forward and drinkable.
What our editors thought
Big berry notes in the nose with just a touch of spicy cinnamon. The sip drops down an octave, transposing the typical berry notes and allowing them to echo through the hall. It's spacious, but a touch thin, with a drying minty herbal note that cleans up the finish.
