All revved up and ready to go, Blitz Cherry is the latest in our series of Berlinerweisse fruit beers. It’s taking it easy in terms of strength at a modest 2.1% ABV, but the 200kg of sour cherries will shoot you in the back. It has a real sour cherry kick, and is an incredible shade of red. It’s a complex tongue twisting beer, especially given the low ABV. Every Blitz we brew is different, due to the spontaneous souring process, and this particular version has a great blend of all the different flavours we look for in a Berlinerwiesse, and an effervescent champagne mouthfeel.

Beer5000 (5316) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2014
On tap @ Patricks. Unclear reddish golden body with a thin, lacing pale pink head. Light fruity aroma, mostly cherry I beleive. Flavor is light fruity, acidic and sweet. Quite sweet actually and the acidity barely manage to keep a certain balance, but after a while everything feels just too sticky sweet in my mouth. Thin body and sweet/acidic aftertaste. I normally appreciate a Berliner Weisse but this one is too sweet and unbalanced for me. Sure interesting, but one glass is more than enough.
