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.

Tasting at Matt’s; 5.9% ABV
Hazy dark red color with pinkish aroma. Real and fantastic raspberry aroma; raspberry tart. Dry and tart mouthfeel, with raspberry flavor, although a bit too weak and empty in the final.
Very nice beer.

Bootle. Deep red liquid with a small pink head. Aroma of raspberries, lemon, lacto, light stone fruit and light grain. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of raspberries, lemon and light grain. Light to medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Really good stuff. Balanced acid without any vinegar notes. Lots of raspberries. A real treat.

Smell is very intense raspberry, with some lacto and acidity. Taste is upfront quite sour, very fruity, super raspberry forward, with a nice tart finish. Super drinkable and very refreshing.

Draft at Mikkeller Bar. Beautiful clear medium red color with a small pinkish head. Amazing intense raspberry aroma, fresh as hell. Great flavor as well, like what Lindemans Framboise would be it’d it were better. Dry and mildly tart with lasting flavor. Dry with a tangy acidity to it. Lively carbonation. Really like this one.

cpetrone84 (1434) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Pour is a dark ruby in color with a light pink head. Nose has a ton of juicy raspberry with notes of lactic acid. Very simple. Taste has a bit more going on. Raspberry’s aren’t as seedy, some leathery brett, lactic acid mid to back palate and faint tartness in the finish. Softer creamy body, moderate carb and quite a dry finish.

I could go on and on about appearance, aroma, taste, etc. But why? All you need to know is that this is a fucking explosion of raspberry deliciousness all up in your dome piece. And I need a few cases of this shit, STAT. Imminently sessionable, and somehow pushes 6% as a berliner. GET IN MAH BELLY!

On tap at Avenue. Pours a nice clear ruby red with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong raspberry, wheat, oak. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart raspberry, light funk, wheat, with lingering dryness. Very nice.
