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.

Pouring out a beautiful glimmering pinkish colour evidence of raspberries. A nice tuft of pink foam on top with a solid bubble density caps off a glorious appearance. The aroma a beautiful sourness blended with fresh picked raspberries and a crisp clean wheat malt. The nose is rather sublime although the sourness is unlike most other sour/wild beers Ive encountered. Sweet raspberries and fruity flavors in the mid palate show like in the aroma with a mild crisp finish. Not until my second or third sip does the sourness creep up and linger into the finish and aftertaste. A beautiful balance and a crisp sourness blend well together in creating a refreshing sour brew.

Bottle - Thanks Hoser. Nice tart raspberry, like a good jam. Clear candy red with no head. Tart raspberry, no bitterness but a pleasant sourness. A great outdoor drink, but as my sister said ’doesn’t even taste like beer’.

To the eye, a very dark pink, viscous pour followed by a light, airy and pink head that dissipates quickly. A strong odor of tart raspberries. Sparkly feel in mouth and presence of raspberries that does not disappoint, along with a pleasant mouth-puckering sourness. An extremely well crafted Berliner, very enjoyable and refreshing on those hot, humid days! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2013 bottle brewed with raspberry’s. Thanks to Seb for the bottle. Bright ruby clear red pour with very little head, looks like cream soda. Smell is tart, with loads of raspberry and wine like notes. Wow, really sour up front, it will make you pucker for sure, dry but not bone dry like a lambic, highly carbonated, one dimensional but in a good way.

Tap at BarHop. Pink-red pour with a thin white head. Intensely tart and raspberry seed bitterness. Sour and tart but quite nice. Light bodied and acidic. Okay - but I’d actually prefer some more body in this. Very refreshing though.

Bottle split at CBC during the Martin T tasting, thanks to Martin himself, 06/06/13. Lightly hazed crimson with a thin pink head that dissipates edgeward. Nose is tarte raspberries, sugars, light funky notes, lactic, subtle sour notes. Taste comprises stewed raspeberries, tarte berry skins, light sugars. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dryish finale. Easy drinking BW, wuld prefer a little more puckerings at the business end though!

Bottle shared @ Craft. Light amber with a small head. The nose is light tart fruits, a bit of bread, citrus. Taste is nicely accented by red berries. Earthy sweetness. Light body, moderately tart. Overall, refreshing stuff.

HUGE thanks to mathieuc for this!

So, I’ve had fruit lambics in the past, but never anything that smells or looks like this. This is... surreal.

Pours a clear red with a small head that fades quickly. Aroma of pure, fresh raspberries. Like, you just picked a pint of raspberries and stick your nose in it, and thats exactly what this beer smells like. Unreal. Taste is sour, tangy raspberies with a healthy lactic sourness. Good carbonation, finishes dry with a slight pucker. Pretty fucking outstanding.

This beer is just about perfect.
