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.

Bottle. Haven’t been mentioning appearance lately but this one is awesome. Cherry red with a light purple tint and a perfect bubbly ring. Aroma is raspberry yogurt, flowers, and light grapefruit. Tastes lightly sour with a strong tart finish. Pureed raspberries mostly with some fleshy grapefruit and a hint of flowers. Some light funk to add some complexity. Moderately acidic. Great berliner.

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!
