Culminate: Raspberry

6.5% ABV

Culminate Raspberry is our first fruited blend of turbid mashed 1, 2, and 3 year old spontaneously fermented Lambic-inspired ales. Every year we put away wine barrels full of Lambic-inspired beer brewed as closely to Belgian tradition as possible. It involves a complex turbid mash process of Pilsner malt and unmalted wheat, a long boil with aged whole leaf hops(aged for over 5 years), natural cooling and inoculation in our rooftop koelschip, and barrel fermentation. The wort is fermented only with the natural yeast and bacteria that land on it overnight while cooling. A portion of the beer in this blend dates back to some of our first brews ever in 2016. Culminate: Raspberry was blended onto over 500 g/L of Virginia raspberries and later bottled on March 5, 2019 and conditioned only with the cultures present in the beer.⠀

We’ve been looking forward to releasing Culminate Raspberry since day one and Lambic-inspired beer is at the heart of what we do at The Veil. Even the name of our brewery is a romantic reference to the pellicle that forms on the top of this style of beer while it ages in the barrels and helps protect the beer from oxygen exposure. ⠀

We’re extremely happy with the results – Culminate tastes like fruited Lambic with its own Veil personality. The layered flavors of funky fruit, tart raspberry jam, musky hops, and a pleasant natural carbonation give this beer unrivaled complexity for its strength. ⠀
