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.

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 (2191) - 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.

Bottle thanks to Dany and Jay for muling. Pours pink raspberry with pink head. Nose and taste of freshly ultra ripe raspberry, fresh ripe strawberry, lactose sourness, light funky acid and tart raspberry malt. Lighter bodied. Slightly dry on the palate.

thome50 (1181) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle from Kevin, thanks! Pours a deep wine like purple with very little head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is crazy ripe Raspberry’s with some slight strawberry. Taste is a light raspberry at first then goes to a more intense flavor of strawberry and raspberry and finishes off with a nice Berliner sour. Very nice beer.

Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tart berry & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & tart finish of moderate to long duration.
