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.

Impressive red glow with a thin pink lace. Dissapating head. Pleasant raspberry aroma. Sharp texture. Bitter raspberry flavour. Salty, sour finish.

Metalchopz (2197) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2013
Pours a clean rich red colour with a fizzy pink head that disappears quickly, leaving no lace. Sweet cherry aromas with the raspberry in the background. Sour mouthfeel with just a tad of tart. Still, lots of cherries in the taste with a little raspberries and some notes of wheat in the finish with the yeast. For those who like Kriek lambic beers as quite intense on the sourness and cherries.

341ml bottle. Bright pink body, small pink head with poor retention, no lacing. Aroma of ripe raspberries, floral and slightly spicy. Taste is pungent sour: lemon juice, tart raspberries, green grapes, wheat, spices.

solidfunk (3567) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2013
This is a good beer. Integrates very well. Pours pink with good head and lacing. Raspberries put nice, appropriate sourness for style. Lots of wild wheat, funky aroma. Sour finish, pretty mouth-puckering. Bottle thanks to Fred82.

deekyn (1115) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 22, 2013
A - pours a hazy purple/pink with zero head. S - RASPBERRIES!!!! Well you get the idea. Aromas of fresh and jammy raspberries filled by an overly sweet cran cherry/raspberry. Quiet notes of wheat, must, and lemon juice. M - light drinkable body. Nice tartness leads to a dry but sweet sweet ending. Average palate. T - tart raspberries, white wine and cran grape lead to a musty, light lemon and vegetal notes palate. Lingering jammy sweetness. Simple sugars and berry skins and seeds linger. O - a nice simple but refreshing framboise. 3.5

BeerBeCue (97) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
341ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a nice purpleish burgundy with a minimal head which reduces to a small ring. Aroma is obviously of raspberry, and is also pretty lactic. Taste is intensively sour, but not over-the-top; this is really well-dosed. Texture is thin/slick with average carbonation. Overall, this was a nice surprise!!! Would definitely buy again! Well done!

pumpkinhead2 (289) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 Bière d’un rouge intense, bien voilée par une multitude de petites particules, effervescence difficile à observer au travers ce voile, mais qui semble moyenne-faible, col intensément rose qui se réduit tout de même assez rapidement pour ne laisser qu’une trace à la surface du liquide. Arômes dominant de framboises acidulées derrière lesquels on peut également percevoir certains effluves plus céréaliers (pain frais, foin, blé…). Nez bien agréable et bien intense, mais complexité faible cependant. En bouche, pétillement plutôt faible sur la langue, breuvage surtout mousseux, mais plutôt mince au palais. Au goût, l’acidité domine totalement, mais ça reste largement dans le domaine du tolérable, j’ai déjà goûté bien plus acide. Saveur surtout citronnée, les framboises sont moins présente au goût qu’anticipé, trame de fond de céréale et de foin. Bière bien intense en bouche, mais aucun sucré, aucune amertume, et faible complexité. Bière correcte, sans plus. Je ne comprends définitivement pas le «buzz» qui entoure la sortie de cette bière chaque année. La rareté probablement…

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2013
Pours a rather intense shade of...I don’t know what colour I’d call this. It’s a sort of red with purple leanings. Anyway, it looks great. Pretty clear with a quick pink head that’s there and gone in a second and a half. Really different on the nose. There’s some wild raspberry and lots of funkiness. There’s something vegetal in there too...I keep thinking cucumber plants but that’s not quite right. Very interesting on the palate too but in a slightly different way. Starts with a quick tart note that gives way to a big fresh raspberry fruitiness (real raspberries too, not that syrupy shit that basically every raspberry wheat uses) and then closes with a nice even sourness.

ChinoSkillzian (152) - The Hills, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle thanks to Andrew. Pours a hazy pinkish/red color with medium head. The nose is total fresh raspberry, lacto, bit of yeast, and some citrus. Palate is rich raspberry, acid, some wheat in the background, and lemonade. A bit of cream flavor also. Dry finish, excellent balance.
