Ocean Reach Raspberry Saison

Given some of the Crafty team tasted an array of core range and limited release beers from Ocean Reach at the same time while preparing this listing, there was a temptation to see Strawberry Gose and Raspberry Saison as something of a twin set. But, aside from the at times intense way in which those fruits come across, they're pretty darn distinct.

Here, there's heaps of lolly like berries on the nose with a growing, funky, almost rubbery farmhouse underbelly. The yeast does more than that too, with elements of spiced banana – cloves stuck in a banana, perhaps – and maybe even a dash of cinnamon.
