Episode #218: 2012 Weyerbacher Riserva

Dan and Dad On Tap sample the 2012 Weyerbacher Riserva in this quick little episode from the crypt recorded a while back.

2012 Weyerbacher Riserva

Weyerbacher’s limited release (once per year) wild ale with raspberry puree aged in oak barrels weighing in around 10% ABV. For the record, we may have served it on the upper end of the recommended temperature range from their website.

Appearance

Plenty of carbonation, forming a thin white head which dissipates quickly revealing a more tawny hue as opposed to the previous year’s pinkish color.

Aroma

Fruit-forward with a pleasant sour and funk note.

Taste

Sweet. Tart. Raspberries are sweet in the mid-palate, but it finishes tart and then dry to keep you sipping.

Mouthfeel

The light carbonation and tartness along with the dry finish provides for a delightful body that gently coats the tongue and mouth.

Overall

Excellent dessert sipper. We didn’t mention food pairings, but we obviously would like it with raspberry or some other fruit-based desserts.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
