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.

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.

Pours with a very red color and a pink head that settles immediately. Aroma is fresh ripe raspberries and some tart. Flavor is more tart than ripe berries, and a bit shallow. Ditto the body. Not a bad drinking beer tho.

Countbeer (5584) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle: Thanks Gothgargoyle: Chouffe glass: Small lively pink head. Hazy red ish pink body. Looks delicious! Aroma has loads of raspberries with some funk and a light light leathery/smokey ish edge. Flavour is refreshing tart with raspberries, light butter ish tint which softens out the tartness but of course looses the battle quick, some funk and some crispy herbal tones with a citrussy edge. Aftertaste is light, mostly some tart tints with some tart fruit and light funk. Low carbo, watery (light light creamy tint) tart mouthfeel, medium bodied. Tasty and refreshing ad nothing crazy yet still beibg awesome!

Tap at Scheras for Zwanze day. Bright red pour with some pinkish head. Aroma is raspberry jam. Taste follows somewhat but not as strong as the aroma. Still really good.
