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.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place sur Laurier. de couleur rouge-rosée et voilée. Nez fruité moyennement sûr aux notes acides (framboises, petites notes de cerises sûres), moyen de blé sûr avec de faibles notes de levures fruitées. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et une texture légèrement sirupeuse. Goût de levures fruitées moyennement sûres et acides et légèrement sucrées (framboises, petites notes d’autres petits fruits rouges telles que des cerise sûres ainsi que des notes de lime, qui dure toute la gorgée) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de blé sûr et assez sec qui vient compléter la gorgée avec une très légère amertume de levure. Post-goût long et un peu sec, moyennement aigre de blé et de fruits (framboises). (2006)

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy bright red with pink head that falls quickly. Arroma is a big raspberry puree with some evidence of funk. Taste starts with a load of tart raspberrys, then some lactic sourness, a bit a of yougourt-like tartness, wheat malt. Medium-low mouthfeel with lively carbonation. Easy to drink and very refreshing. Can’t wait to buy load of this for this summer.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Hazy red pour with a pink-white head. Excellent raspberry aroma, grassy, and plenty of lemon and lactic tartness. Mild fruit sweetness and a little bit of grape/rose wine character. Excellent tartness all the way through the sip. Plenty of raspberry and red grape flavor. Nice grass, lots of lemon, some yogurt, and a light sweetness, but finishes dry.

drewbeerme (3869) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours bright red with foamy pink head that didn’t last. Aroma has bright fresh raspberry juice, seedy, nice tart character. Flavors are tart raspberries, jammy, lactic kick, really tight beer, acid finishes. Refreshing, sour. This brewery continues to do a lot styles very well.

bottle graciously provided by the always _______ glouglouburp, thanks dany. it’s official - they can no longer say you are good for nothing. initial aroma bursts forth from the glass with a wallop of fresh juicy raspberry jam, smashed sugared mixed berries, purple grapes, dole fruit juice berry popsicles. hints of vanilla, wet oak and soft leather come forth as it warms. taste is clean, crisp raspberry yogurt, moderate lactic sourness balanced nicely by the sweet berry jam. calm lactic wheat backing. pleasantly dry. this beer can be beer. bud light drinkability score of like 9 or so. quite good. Dieu du Ciel Solstice d’Été aux Framboises and norm macdonald: two great things to come out of canada. one i can pronounce, and one i can chug. boot ov niver bon boog en pruncuncing thangs. chuggin on the otter hend...
