COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abv varies from 5% to 6.5%.

German inspired sour wheat beer (based on our Été Indien). The obvious and domineering acidity of this beer is obtained by letting the unboiled wort go sour for several days. The Solstice d’Été is made complete by the addition, during the fermentation process, of a phenomenal quantity of whole fruit (raspberries or cherries) which compensate for the sourness of the beer. The result is a very refreshing beer where both acidity and fruity flavours dominate wholeheartedly.

Bottle 341ml. Pours pink/red with low-medium dark pink head (diminishing). Aroma is of cherries, fruits, sugar. Taste is of cherries, sourness, acidity, red fruits, tart, grapes. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Good balance. Overall: Pretty good. More reasonnable than raspberries version (wich is a tad too sour for me). Cherries balance well.

En bouteille 341 ml. Couleur rouge foncé, claire, mousse rose. Arôme de fruits qui explosent...ça sent le surette. En bouche, acidité du fruit, notes de cerises, l’entrée en bouche goûte la Kriek, beau petit pétillant. Acidité, amertume, maltage exemplaire. Acidulé et fruitée. Excellente.

veronneaupy (175) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Un nez discret de jus de cerises un peu acide/vin. En bouche, on goûte un jus de cerises juste assez acide et sucré. La finale est semblable a celle d'un vin fruité. Excellent pour l'été ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rouge écarlate et légèrement voilée, une mousse toute aussi rouge, mais assez mince, se pose sur la robe éclatante. On dirait que je m’apprête à boire une liqueur Maxi aux fraises, comme dans mon jeune temps. Au nez, les cerises sont présentes, mais ne sont pas tant explosives; elles partagent la scène avec les céréales également. Très similaire à la version à la framboise en bouche, bien acide et surette et très rafraîchissante. Mis à part le goût de cerises, la seule différence avec la version framboise est que celle-ci est un peu plus mince. La finale est toute en céréales. Délicieuse.

WOW, c’est vraiment délicieux. Moins surette que la Soltice d’été aux framboises, goût intense de cerises. Un autre chef d’oeuvre de Dieu du ciel.

Smells great, deep sour cherry aroma with extra sour/tart notes. All fruit and acid in the nose. Beautiful appearance too, ruby red and effervescent, with a quickly fading head however. Tastes great, upfront tart cherry and sweetness, finishes with a more malty and acetic note. Light bodied and average carbonation. Could be slightly more tart for my taste, but great tasting nonetheless.

Bottle. Aroma is potent sourness with potent cherry that is fresh. Slightly hazy red under a pinkish white ring. Clean lactic sourness with faintly sweet raspberry and very low to no bitterness. Very dry and high carbonation. Clean.
