Postmark Brewing Raspberry Session Ale ReviewPostmark Brewing – Raspberry Session Ale Review

Summer came early at Postmark Brewing with their release of their Raspberry Ale that the dub as “Wild, Summer, Tart”. The beer may have hit the shelves in February but who’s counting. Pouring the beer it has an orange hue with a finger’s worth of head that settles quickly leaving a very slight amount of lacing on the glass. From the beer comes a light aroma of pale malt and a slight raspberry aroma. The Raspberry is mellow and a nice combination of sweet and sour on the nose. Tasting the beer it has a bigger body than you may expect for its low alcohol and is beer first, raspberry second. First up on the flavour train comes a light Pale Ale like flavour that has a nice maltiness and slight hop to it. From here the raspberry grows into a lightly sweet and sour flavour. This beer is not sweet and it is definitely not a sour but the flavour is a delicate balance between each of the flavours. As someone that is not a big fan of most raspberry beers this one is pleasantly sessionable and balanced.
