Black Raven Brewery is releasing Corvus Frambicus, a raspberry sour, Saturday, November 7 at their taproom in Redmond. The tart sour is the newest addition to Black Raven’s Corbeaux Series, which also has La Petite Mort and La Mort in its catalog. The Corbeaux Series feature barrel-aged and funky beers that are most often bottle-conditioned and limited release. Corvus Frambicus will be available on draft at Black Raven Brewery’s taproom only.


“Here it is folks, our raspberry sour with all the soul we could squeeze into it. This pours bright and red with strong raspberry and mature soured notes on the nose. It drinks crisp and dry with a slight ‘raspberry hard candy’ note on the front. This soon gives way to a huge acid content which pushes the edge of comfort on the back of the palate. The finish is surprisingly clean and lingering.

The base was brewed back in 2012 and soured using one of our two house sour strains, “Angelica”, which we grew up from wild bacteria and yeasts native to the Skagit valley. Copious amounts of local, seasonal and farm direct raspberries were harmed year after year in the making of this beer.

ABV: 5.6%

Taproom draft release only”
