Day 162 Drink: Weyerbacher Riserva
Weyerbacher Brewing Co. was founded in 1995 by Dan and Sue Weirback in a former livery stable in Easton, PA.
Riserva is Weyerbacher's first American wild ale, aged in Oak barrels with red raspberry puree and Brettanomyces yeast.
Weyerbacher Riserva pours a bright red color with a thin head. The aroma is a full round berry. The flavor of this 11.4 percent alcohol by volume ale has a great sour base, but plenty of raspberry comes through to balance the ale. The large format bottle is perfect for sharing with several people.
