PORTLAND, Ore. (September 3, 2015) – Ecliptic Brewing is releasing Electra Framboos, the newest addition to its specialty seasonal beer line. The full-flavored Belgian-style pale ale was brewed with raspberries and cacao nibs and will be available in limited edition 22 oz. bottles beginning Monday, September 7.
“Summer seasonals tend to be drinkable session beers, and we wanted to create something that people could enjoy as the hot weather begins to wane,” said owner and head brewmaster John Harris. “The flavors in Electra Framboos make it a perfect transitional beer.”
