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.

Une bonne "sour"! Belle couleur framboise avec un léger collet rosé. Très rafraîchissante avec un goût naturel de framboises, ce qui est tres rare.

Bottle from Depanneur Peluso in a tulip glass. Bright pink-red color with a nice pink frothy head. The nose is pure intense homemade raspberry jam and raspberry sorbet. Foremost sour with a light sweetness in the background. In the mouth it’s a strong lasting lactic sourness like fresh raspberries with a hint of fruity sweetness. Very refreshing but extremely sour. But that comes with the style. Great mouthfeel! Perfect for a hot summer day!

Holy crap. Thanks alehunter for this liquid gold. Pours the most brilliant ruby red with bright pink head. The aromas are out of this world. Amazing fresh raspberry and raspberry jam. This tastes like a handful of fresh raspberries. Sour and juicy. Man is this amazing on a hot summer day. So damn good.

341 ml bottle from a trade, shared two ways. Pours a dark pink with a pinkish head. Aroma is tart, lots of raspberries and some sour cherries. Taste is really sour upfront, followed by sweet raspberries. Nicely balanced between the sweets and tartness. Long raspberry aftertaste.

Dark reddish purple pour, floating raspberry seeds. Nose is huge raspberry jam, some grains. Taste is raspberry jam, a touch of bitterness and full-on sticks and seeds of the raspberry, then very tart and some sweet raspberries. A bit fuller mouthfeel for the style. Gotta hunt down some more bottles of this delicious berliner.

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours garnet/ruby with a very quickly fading head. Nose shows massive raspberry with soft confectionery notes. Lovely stuff despite being so focussed on the one aspect. Amazing flavours, heaps of tart raspberry with a great acidic hit. Some gooseberry notes too and a port note. Nice moderately high carbonation.

Bottle at Zwanze Day 2013. Really excellent raspberry character with beautiful lactic acidity. Mild backing grain. Excellent, albeit a bit strong for the style.

Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Tinus. Bottled on 05/2013. Acajou sur une fine opacité, col fin rosé. Arôme est très plaisant donnant un bouquet somptueux de framboise avec ce caractère typique terreux. Palais est à fond sur les framboises, touche finement sucrée avec ce profil typique de Berliner légèrement suret. Non seulement du brassin mais aussi des framboises. On voit de suite que les gars de DDC ont mis le paquet au niveau des fruits. Note ce fini grains qui se combine très bien au fruité de la bière.
