COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an adaptation of a wheat beer brewed in Berlin known as a Berliner weiss. This is a cloudy blond coloured beer lightly tinted by the fruits which are steeped in it: either strawberry, raspberry or blueberry depending on the time of year. It is a highly acidic beer due to the lactic fermentation which takes place. Its aromas are acid, tart, and fruity.A light tasting beer, its acidity is quickly felt on each side of the tongue before leaving all the room for the wonderful fruity taste. 5.9% ABV on bottled version.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal. A candy red beer topped by a small, dense, pink head. There’s lots of raspberry on the nose, some lemon and not much regular beer aromas. It’s dry, smooth and full-bodied with a nice carbonation level. Raspberry dominates the flavor too, just some lemony notes showing up in addition, all lasting for a good while. A different beer, not much of the berliner weisse-ish base beer is detected, but it has the same refreshing qualities. 150612

12 oz. bottle. It pours a bright reddish purple color with a disappearing pink head. The aroma is full with seedy, fresh raspberries. Some raspberry preserves as well. Not much else going on. The flavor is very tart up front and lactic/lemony with powerful sweet/tart raspberries. Kind of simple and thin on the palate before a pleasant lactic sourness in the finish. The refreshing and lip smacking raspberry character is enjoyable, but the lack of depth keeps it from being great.

Bottle brought back by Heather and Adam on their recent trip to Quebec. Most recent Batch. The color is just nice, a nice shade of violet, thin white head. Wow, the aroma is big on raspberry and light cherry. Very juicy.

Flavor has a ton of fresh raspberries with a very pleasing tartness in the finish. As fresh as this is sample is it shows more tartness without any sourness. The tartness give the juice some pop. Yeast is only lightly noticeable and very refreshing finish. Perfect summer sipper if I could actual drink this on a regular basis. Very finely crafted, could sip this all day.

Bottle at Stillwell, Halifax. It pours crazy luminous bright red with a small white head. The nose is soft, so fruity, juicy raspberry, fresh tartness, sherbet and light jam. The taste is crisp, tart, fresh raspberry, crazy juicy, sherbet, tart green apple, mild acidity, minerals, lemon rind and berry skin with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Nice balance. Just what a needed....Refreshing and fucken delicious!

Bouteille de 341ml du brassin de l’été 2015. Couleur rouge avec légère mousse couleur rose. Laisse une fine dentelle résiduelle après chaque gorgée. Arômes de framboises fraiches. On sent l’acidité monter au nez. Goût encore bcp de framboises, acidité très relevé. Effervescence élevé avec fin de bouche très sec. Subtil goût malté/pain. Pas de goût d’houblon. Très rafraîchissante!

Appearance: cloudy red with a short, short-lived pink head, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: huge tart raspberry, suggestions of sour cherry, wheat. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, minimal bitter, strong tart. (9/10) Palate: light body, moderate to low carbonation, short duration intensely tart finish. (4/5) Well, damn. I was NOT expecting this sensory assault. Right off the hop, cracking it open releases room-filling aromas of tart raspberry. And pouring it is a blood-red torrent, topped by a delicate and short-lived frothy pink head. But, the taste? Oh, my, the taste. Intensely sour, like little I’ve ever had before. If you appreciate sours at all, you need to try this. (18/20)

UncleCrust (4) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015 does not count
’Kay, I’d pay the price just for that amazing color -- cloudy, raspberry with a fine cotton candy head! Then there’s the nose. I just wanted to stay with that *fresh* fruity nose. But nothing prepares for the taste. The thin,biting Berliner Weisse tartness with the freshest raspberry flavour. Delightful.

12oz bottle, as part of a share. Pours a murky reddish-pink with a light pink head. Nose of full-on raspberry and fruit; light and crisp on the palate with a very forward raspberry tartness, slightly sour finish. Perfect for the balcony.
