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.

had this months ago. Pours totally red, a bit of thin foam. Nose has tons of raspberries, not sweet but pure berry essence. Nice. Taste has raspberries too but also a lot of sourness. Mouth-drying, citric powder. Very refreshing.

HonusWagner (1632) - Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Beautiful beer. Colorwise, it’s the kind of glistening ruby red you’d dream of. Aroma is nice and lively with the berries. Flavor is berry-centric and less towards the kind of wheaty/grainy end of the spectrum, but the tartness works nicely and feels natural for the berries rather than like some acid reflux tester like CERTAIN AMERICAN BERLINER WEISSE PRODUCERS WHICH SHALL NOT BE NAMED. But yeah, this one is truly incredible.

Reddish salmon colored hazy pour with a pink head. Funky raspberry aroma. Very fresh and fruity. Notes of candy. Flavor is lightly sweet with lots of raspberry. Moderate sour finish. Lots of barnyard funk.
