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.

4/29/15. On tap at The Craft Bar, Destin. Nice red pink pour, pink head that lasts and laces well. Huge raspberry aroma, seems legit, light acidity. Huge raspberry flavor, dominates, nice acidity, lightly lactic. Tasty, fruity, refreshing.

On tap at the Craft Bar in Destin -- If this was Kool-Aid, it would be shitty Kool-Aid. This however is a beer and as such is pretty good. Pink, light, flavorful, delicate.

Red dried fruits. Tart sour raspberry and cherries. Belgian yeast character with loads of wheat and balanced tartness. Leave a lingering fruity tartness on backend.

Brewvival 2015 Trip #58. Keg at Edmund’s Oast. Clear, vibrant red with a large creamy pink head. Good head retention. Ravishing aroma of big jammy tart berries, raspberry seeds, pepper, mild lactic notes. The taste is dry, tart jammy raspberry, earth, pepper, Concord grape. Medium bodied, mildly tannic. Very dry and bright. Amazing beer.

On tap at Edmund’s oast. Bartender called it a "beautiful beer". Pours a really nice reddish/pink. Raspberry notes are pretty overpowering- lots going on beneath but flirts with being one-note. Definite red wine/ acidic/ lactic notes that appeal. Light bodied and crisp. Really drinkable.

Burgundy pour with a white wispy head with red tinges. Aroma is red raspberries. Taste is raspberries, little sour. Refreshing. Raspberry aftertaste. Not sweet but dry finish. So tasty. A wonderful drinking experience.

De loin la meilleur berliner weisse que j’ai bu de ma vie. Pas pour rien qu’elle est classée #1 sur ratebeer dans sa catégorie respective. Tout est beaucoup trop bien balancé, le goût des framboises nous rappelle que ce sont des vrais fruits qui sont utilisés et non des agents artificiels. Good carbonation, delicious tartness. A MUST !

Draft at the Brass Tap in Coral Springs. Snifter. Pours a beautiful reddish crimson with little head. Aroma is strong raspberries, merlot, and I also got a little banana. Taste is super raspberry and a very dry red wine grape. It really does take you to a different place than many Berliners. Super light body, full of raspberry flavors, slightly tart, and light carbonation. Very sessionable of course.

Robe d’un rouge intense légèrement trouble. Aucune mousse ne semble vouloir se former. Les arômes sont superbes, dominées par les framboises mures sucrées et une belle pointe d’acidité juste assez équilibrée. À l’aveugle, on aurait de la difficulté à dire que c’est une bière et non un jus de fruit. Au goût, le côté acide est plus présent et enveloppe une bonne partie des framboises qui se démarquent tout de même. C’est léger, aucunement sucré, désaltérant, fruité et très frais. Une bière d’été parfaite malgré son taux d’alcool un peu élevé.
