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.

Thanks tommy for this. Nice bright red body and pink head, though not much of it and quickly fading, no lacing. Aroma of lemons and milk and a touch of raspberry. Taste is quite dry, almost sandy in a sense as it tends to kind of dry out the palate in a literal sense. Tart, with some raspberry elements. Decent fruit berliner weisse.

Säuerlicher, leicht herber Beginn, eher wässrig. Passend trocken, angenehme Himbeernoten. Rund fruchtig, ok. 9/10/10/9/8/10

Reimer96 (1201) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a pinkish red with a huge frothy pink head. Aroma of sweet raspberries, lactic and wheat. Taste is lactic, sour raspberries with a light sweetness, wheat and a nice dry sour finish. Body is remarkably light but tons of flavor and balance... Great for a hot summer day,

JBPortland (758) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 12, 2014
12oz bottle thanks to cparles! Pours hazy bright pink red with a finger of pink foam. Nose is unbelievably juicy smashed raspberries, pie, jam, with just a touch of shredded wheat. Smells simply amazing. Taste is a fresh raspberry explosion with a hint of tartness, subtle wheat grain undertones, sweet berry. Finish is a mix of sweet berry pie jam which trails off into a slightly dry cracker or pie crust on the very end of the finish. Best fruit beer I’ve ever had.

reebtogi (4155) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
341ml bottle pours red with a small pink head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is dominated by raspberries with some yeasty notes. Taste is tart raspberries with a fruity and malty sweetness finishing dry and yeasty. Light to medium bodied with abundant carbonation. Well done, tasty and recommended. Great for a hot summer day.

MunBro (337) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
A very respectable sour. Has a tart but not overly bitter flavour of yeast and raspberries. Crisp and refreshing, the raspberry flavour is very natural and not at all artificial which was nice as well.

Spab (2362) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
341 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a clearish ruby red with small pink head. Aroma is very tart with lots of raspberries and a little funkiness. Flavour has lovely tart raspberries with a hint of sweetness and a very subtle funky character. Carbonation a little above average. Just a lovely summerish beer.

L’arôme de cette bière est incroyable. Des framboises et encore des framboises. Très surette mais un vrai délice.

mathieuc (1264) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours a nice and bright raspberry red with a small pink head that disappears quite rapidly and leave only light lacing. Nose is of pure raspberry juice/purée, incredibly inviting. Taste is of pure raspberry juice, tart and all, but you lose much of the base berliner. It is lactic and moderately acid compared to last year’s edition, extremely refreshing. Body is light, carbonation somewhat low, enhancing the juicy feeling. Never for a moment it felt artificial, just plain natural raspberries. Overall a really satisfying drink, perfect fruit and acidity levels.

Godofthecellar (667) - NYC, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Wow bright pinkish red color. Smell bursts of raspberries, reminiscent of 2007 hommage but less funk. Taste of fresh juicy raspberry, tart blackberries, thin mouthfeel with a tart finish
