Review: New Belgium Tartastic Raspberry Lime Ale

New Belgium’s latest into its semi-sour fruit beer line, Tartastic, turns to that trusty combination of raspberries and lime. The results are short of impressive, though those looking for an alternative to, say, sangria, might find this combination of flavors enticing. Think earthy notes mixed with malty sweetness, layered with relatively restrained fruit notes — heavy on the lime — on top. This edition of Tartastic is not nearly as sour as some of its predecessors, particularly on the finish. That’s probably a good thing, although it also means the beer isn’t really able to showcase the fruit that makes this otherwise tame brew unique.
