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.

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.

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.

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

Une bière de qualité, construite de façon judicieuse et qui saura en convaincre plus d’un. Au yeux, la mousse est rosée et tenace et la bière est d’un rouge éclatant. L’odeur de framboises prédomine et fait introduction à la sensation de boire le fruit lui-même. L’équilibre entre le côté fruité et acidulé demeure à mon avis parfait et c’est l’une des principales qualité de cette bière.

Raspberry, tart, lots of carbonation. Lovely summer tipple, though a slighlty short finish. Drinks like at 4% BW at 5.9%.

Lukaduke (2263) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a deep ruby red with a finger of pink foam. Nose is beautiful raspberry fruit, some basement funk and light foggy grain. The palate follows the nose with great layers of earthy raspberry funk, tart ripe fruit and lingering musk. Really enjoyable from beginning to end !

dandeman (531) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2014
Version 2014 Marqué de citron et de framboises, l’olfactif nous rappelles l’acidité de la framboise en début de période de cueillette. avant qu’elle ne devienne sucrée. Un olfactif puissant mais unidimensionnel. Le visuel est rosé / rouge, très flou, avec une mousse rose de bonne épaisseur, de bonne densité, ainsi que d’un maintient assez long. Elle laisse de légères traces sur le verre. L’acidité frappe les cotés de la langue dès l’entrée de bouche et s’installe pour laisser place à la framboise immature qui s’installe en douce saveurs citronnées avec une touche de salé. L’effervescence est très active, ce qui rend ce liquide très rafraichissant. La texture est moyenne et l’équilibre acidité / fruit est intéressant. Aux amateurs d’acidité tranchante. Par contre, elle présente un fruité adoucissant qui ravira les amateurs de bières de soif.

Explosion de framboises et de mineraux dans un liquide rosé vif qui rafraichit comme peu savent le faire.

4 pack of 341ml bottle at William J. Walter. Dark pink without head. Smell like a cooler !!! Taste better than a cooler, not too sweet, not to sour. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and long sweet small fruit finish. Like the name says, this beer is for hot summer days. Very good.
