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.

341ml bottle. Pours a brilliant ruby red, with almost no head. Fruity, sour aroma, raspberries, citrus, cherries, malt, blackcurrant. Dry, light bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity, tart taste, loads of fresh raspberries, citrus peel and wheat. Not overly complex, but very refreshing and extremely well balanced. (2016-02-06)

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2016 No head, light carbonation. Waited a little longer than normal to drink this bottle so a little sediment is mixed in. Deep red. Overwhelming raspberry smell. Strong tartness, sour. Delicious.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks to TheEpeeist! Hazy pinkish red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of big tart raspberry, cherry, lemon, hints of funk, slight oak into a bit of musky, cheesy notes. Taste was acidic, lemon, some slight musty and cheesy notes with a big jammy, raspberry component, finishing tart, more berries. Very refreshing and tasty.

Aroma is raspberries, mild yeast and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is raspberries/almost like a candy syrup, malts, fruit, mild sweetness and a very tart finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of tart musty raspberries with some lemon. It pours a slightly hazy pinkish-amber with a small pink head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker. The flavor starts moderate tart raspberry and mild wheat. The finish has light-moderate lemon with a hint of must. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is super drinkable and refreshing.

tmrmwel (1524) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2015
On tap @ What’s Brewing 15. Pours hazy red, with a big airy, pink head. Aroma is nicely tart raspberries with lactic, earthy notes, and sweet raspberry candy, as well some funky notes. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sour raspberries, with lactic acid and musty bretty wood. As a Berliner Weisse this is just awesome, and rating just to style this would have been pretty close to top notch.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours ruby with a tiny pink head and a raspberry aroma. There is a delicious raspberry flavor that conceals a solid sour wheat base with an acidic finish. Looks good, smells nice and tastes great.

Bottle from Bine & Vine. Purs a light cherry read with no head. Aroma is strongly frsh raspberry. Near med body. Flavor is raspberry forward. It’s rather sweet/tart. Suggests a BW after the dollop of syrup is added.
