Mother Earth Windowpane Series: Raspberries
Mother Earth Windowpane Series: Raspberries is the latest in their barrel aged fruit beer series. This time around I believe this is an American Pale Wheat Ale aged in both white and red wine barrels with raspberries. This really doesn’t drink like a wheat beer at all. It’s pretty sweet and kinda boozy to start, but not in a bad way. I’m getting lots of nice vanilla and dry oak, with a very mild raspberry tartness on the finish. I’m thinking some of the alcohol flavor might be being imparted by the wine barrels. I wish somebody could explain to me why this series seems to be received with some less than stellar reviews, I’ve really enjoyed the three I’ve had.
