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.

A hazy pink beer with a small disappearing pink head. The aroma contains notes of wood, raspberries, and pink grapefruit. The flavor has a nice sourness with notes of wood and raspberries. They could learn something in Berlin from this brew!

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2012 Red, fruity with a big aroma. Tart and fruity, quite balanced but pulling some acetic as well as lactic. Juicy tart finish is refreshing. Yum. I have a long and storied history with this beer and I think I’ve finally found one that is fully realized.

(RBSG05) Cloudy red body with no head. Aroma is sweet, raspberry, raspberry, raspberry, some tart/sourness. Taste is sweet, tart, raspberry, light lemon. For some reason this does not wholly work for me -- first time I have had a Berliner Weisse accompanied by fruit.

brokensail (10527) - 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.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy berry and sour citrus aroma. 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. Interesting good beer.

Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2010
A reddish burgundy ale with a thin white pinkish head. A nice mix of caramel and cherries, berries, a bit muskey. In mouth, a nice smooth lightly acidic malt with grassy butterscotch notes, refreshing and smooth. On tap at DDC 12th Anniversary, Sept. 11 2010.
