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.

Countbeer (5505) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle: Thanks Gothgargoyle: Chouffe glass: Small lively pink head. Hazy red ish pink body. Looks delicious! Aroma has loads of raspberries with some funk and a light light leathery/smokey ish edge. Flavour is refreshing tart with raspberries, light butter ish tint which softens out the tartness but of course looses the battle quick, some funk and some crispy herbal tones with a citrussy edge. Aftertaste is light, mostly some tart tints with some tart fruit and light funk. Low carbo, watery (light light creamy tint) tart mouthfeel, medium bodied. Tasty and refreshing ad nothing crazy yet still beibg awesome!

Tap at Scheras for Zwanze day. Bright red pour with some pinkish head. Aroma is raspberry jam. Taste follows somewhat but not as strong as the aroma. Still really good.

11.5 oz bottle. Clear neon magenta with brief pink froth; surreal. Nose is raspberry jam and wheat with hints of vanilla yoghurt. Smooth and creamy with a dull sparkle growing acidic. Taste is sour raspberry, wheat and lime yoghurt. Quite the decadent Berliner.

Bottle. Haven’t been mentioning appearance lately but this one is awesome. Cherry red with a light purple tint and a perfect bubbly ring. Aroma is raspberry yogurt, flowers, and light grapefruit. Tastes lightly sour with a strong tart finish. Pureed raspberries mostly with some fleshy grapefruit and a hint of flowers. Some light funk to add some complexity. Moderately acidic. Great berliner.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel, Montreal. A candy red beer topped by a small, dense, pink head. There’s lots of raspberry on the nose, some lemon and not much regular beer aromas. It’s dry, smooth and full-bodied with a nice carbonation level. Raspberry dominates the flavor too, just some lemony notes showing up in addition, all lasting for a good while. A different beer, not much of the berliner weisse-ish base beer is detected, but it has the same refreshing qualities. 150612
