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.

Tap at BarHop. Pink-red pour with a thin white head. Intensely tart and raspberry seed bitterness. Sour and tart but quite nice. Light bodied and acidic. Okay - but I’d actually prefer some more body in this. Very refreshing though.

Appearance: cloudy red with a short, short-lived pink head, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: huge tart raspberry, suggestions of sour cherry, wheat. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, minimal bitter, strong tart. (9/10) Palate: light body, moderate to low carbonation, short duration intensely tart finish. (4/5) Well, damn. I was NOT expecting this sensory assault. Right off the hop, cracking it open releases room-filling aromas of tart raspberry. And pouring it is a blood-red torrent, topped by a delicate and short-lived frothy pink head. But, the taste? Oh, my, the taste. Intensely sour, like little I’ve ever had before. If you appreciate sours at all, you need to try this. (18/20)

’Kay, I’d pay the price just for that amazing color -- cloudy, raspberry with a fine cotton candy head! Then there’s the nose. I just wanted to stay with that *fresh* fruity nose. But nothing prepares for the taste. The thin,biting Berliner Weisse tartness with the freshest raspberry flavour. Delightful.

12oz bottle, as part of a share. Pours a murky reddish-pink with a light pink head. Nose of full-on raspberry and fruit; light and crisp on the palate with a very forward raspberry tartness, slightly sour finish. Perfect for the balcony.

This pink/red rasberry beer kept its taste from the last two years. The smell stays the same, strong notes of fruits and sugar. Its sour taste makes it one of a kind. Drink it while you can! Cheers.

Draught @ Dieu Du Ciel, Montréal, QC
Pours murky purple with a pink head. Aroma has notes of malt, raspberry, lactic acid, tartness and berries. Taste is light sweet and medium sour with a long dry, sour and raspberry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Una berliner Weisse dal sapore molto deciso di lampone, colore rosso rubino scuro, molto. Frizzante, non amo la tipologia ma un piccolo assaggio si può fare

Bouteille de 341ml au Marché des Brasseurs. Couleur = framboise, mousse = framboise, arôme = framboise. goût = framboise... la bière on la cherche dans ce breuvage. C’est plus un punch à la framboise qu’une bière... c’est fruité, c’est surette, y’a un petit côté funky assez surprenant, mais c’est tout sauf une biere...

Ce commentaire se veut descriptif d’une boisson à la framboise, non pas d’une bière car mis à part l’alcool et l’effervescence, je peine à voir de la bière dans ce produit. Liquide rouge clair, translucide et éclatant de fraîcheur, la bière affiche une tête mousseuse mais très éphémère de couleur rose bonbon. Des effluves surettes de framboises et même citronnées montent au nez dans un élan d’enthousiasme estival! Inutile de mentionner qu’en bouche, c’est de la framboise mais non pas une framboise sucrée, sirupeuse ou artificielle, mais une framboise des champs jeune, fraîche et bien acidulée. La bière offre un pétillement énergique et croustillant. Chaque partie de la bouche est sollicitée; de la langue à l’intérieur des joues qui crispées tant c’est sûr et peu sucré. Une bele petite levure fait également son travail. Au niveau de l’amertume et/ou de la présence de malts, il ne faut pas s’attendre à grand chose. Je ne sens aucun houblon, mais avec beaucoup d’efforts, je ressens un peu d’un malt très léger qui n’apporte pas de réelles saveurs, mais une structure à ce liquide qui doit bien reposer sur quelque-chose! Attention lors de la dégustation de cette bière, il n’est que trop facile de la boire d’un trait!

Draft pour at the chucks hop shop sour event. Pours a dark cherry red with a sweet red raspberry aroma. Huge pucker up sour red raspberry flavor with a melowing berry finish. Like raspberry candy. Big flavor, huge sour. Very tasty stuff. Loved it.
