Beer review: Tuatara Tart

IMG_9880_crop.jpg

A limited release from Tuatara this beer is reminiscent of the Framboise Lambic style. While some Framboise Lambic beers can be too sweet and somewhat over-bearing, this beer, as the name suggests, has a tartness to the flavor. The sweet raspberry flavor on the nose hides the tart aftertaste to the beer. The two flavors complement each other and makes the beer crisp and enjoyable.

This beer goes well as an evening drink on its own or with dessert, especially over the festive season.
