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!

Tasting at Matt’s; 5.9% ABV
Hazy dark red color with pinkish aroma. Real and fantastic raspberry aroma; raspberry tart. Dry and tart mouthfeel, with raspberry flavor, although a bit too weak and empty in the final.
Very nice beer.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2008
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.
