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.

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.

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.

Bottle shared with Paul and a few others towards the end of Dadtoberfest 2012. Pours a bright, hazy pinkish red body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is puckering tart raspberries, funk and sweet strawberries. Mouthfeel is perfect for a Berliner - tart, funky, fruity and balanced. Awesome.

Courtesy of BOLTZ7555. 12oz bottle pours somewhat hazy reddish rose with tiny near white head of foam. The aroma is rich and robust with nectar like berry notes with some funk and wet horse blanket around the edges. The taste is tart and it quickly gets into berry notes. To midway and into the finish it slides into more and more dry tartness. Interesting stuff.

Trade with Steve Kim, thanks: Pours a reddish amber with an initial fizzy head which fades, no lace. The aroma is tart raspberries, lactic acid, white wine vinegar, biscuit malt and wheat husks. The taste is nicely acidic and the fruit complements the beer, not overpowering. A light wheat and biscuit malt notes is found on the aftertaste, mostly clean and very refreshing as should be the case with the genre. This beer lives up to the hype... hope the bottle the other versions soon!
