Oregon is the United States’ largest producer of boysenberries, and while the parentage of this little mystery fruit is still unknown, it is believed to be a cross between a blackberry, raspberry, and a loganberry. This Boysenberry blend features sour blond and triple ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to two years with additions of fresh, Oregon-grown boysenberries and blackberries, offering intense flavors of fresh bramble fruit with hints of black currant, pomegranate, and mint.
