New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale expands “Tart” series

New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale

New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale leads off a new kettle soured series of ales in 2018. 

Some of this beer name should already be familiar to you – “Tartastic”. A year ago, New Belgium debuted Tartastic Lemon Ginger Sour. The brewery found success with this release among their fanbase, prompting the brewery to turn Tartastic into a full-on series. New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale takes the lead in the series this year, brewed with raspberry and lime purees.

Don’t let the beautiful color fool you, this beer isn’t heavy on the fruit. Each sip has a touch of tartness up front, that gives way to malty finish with just a drizzle of fresh raspberry. Intentionally restrained, Raspberry Lime Ale is better described as possessing “the essence” of the berries and citrus, instead of a face plant directly into a sweet pie.

Expect more “Tartastic” fruit-based releases in 2018.
