Love Potion Pale Ale

Brewed during the end of raspberry season and during a time in my life where there was a _lot_ of love going around. My experiment with fresh fruit in the secondary imparted a lot of scent and a little tartness, it also made for over carbonated bottles. That being said, the result was great, nice taste, great pink color. If I brew again with raspberries, I’d drop them in at the last five minutes of the boil instead.

Crisp, tart, solid hop flavor with a nice clean finish, leaving a hint of raspberry flavor in the decay. Very tasty. I was afraid of the tart raspberry flavor conflicting with my hop choice, but it worked out really well.
