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.

Adamsville (41) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
Apparence : Rouge, semi-limpide, effervescence assez élevée, col blanc moyen, rétention faible. Nez : Framboises fraîches… et framboises! Goût : Framboises, acidité moyenne. Sensation : Effervescence moyenne-faible, corps moyen, petite chaleur, longueur moyenne (acidité de framboises). Bref : Bien bon breuvage aux framboises, difficile de détecter l’aspect bière en arrière-plan, extrêmement rafraîchissante, c’est une bière parfaite d’été! Plus ou moins complexe, son aspect intéressant est que les framboises ne sont pas du tout artificielles.

jaghana (5376) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle 341ml, a cloudy red beer with pink head. Nose is on strawberries and raspberries with the typical fresh yogurt touch in the background. Taste is quite acid, the acidity we can have in the skin of small berries, light sourness. Aroma is on red fruits, lactic, metallic, cooked vegetables. Very long acid / red berries aftertaste.

kraddel (5858) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2016
Pours clear, yet deep red. No head. Smell is very intense fruity. Taste is strong and sharp sour, with a very very dry mouthfeel, yet a bomb of fruityness. Talk about an explosive taste ! the beer ain’t balanced by far , as it builds up between extremes that are not extreme in a good way ( too sharp sourness, too dry, probably not that natural as I’d like to think it is ) yet the taste itself aint bad !

C'est une excellence Bière mais je crois qu'elle est trop acide pour moi. Mais elle est vraiment dans les standards de son style et très réussie...

La bière est rouge, presque bourgogne et présente beaucoup de résidus de framboise au fond du verre. L’effervescence est grande, à un point tel que les résidus non filtrés remontent à la surface telle une véritable fontaine de parc. Au nez, la framboise domine avec conviction. C’est la même chose en bouche, avec un côté surette et un côté framboise qui se marient à merveille. Pour moi, cette Solstice d’été est l’une de mes bières d’été favorites. Elle représente la balance parfaite entre le sucre et le surette. Grande, grande bière.

QcBeer (118) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
De couleur rouge framboise, très mince colle mousseux sur le rebord du verre. Beaucoup de particules de lie dans le verre. Au nez, ça sent les framboises sauvage fraîche, on y ressent un côté acidité, concentré. Dès l’ouverture en bouche, une poigné de framboises vient direct sur le palais. C’est très fruit, avec un petit coté acidulé qui fait de cette bière un chef d’œuvre de DDC. Sans réel arrière goût autre que la framboise. Miam un délice dans le verre!

Gluepot (392) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2016
An all-round party for the senses. The body colour is almost unbelievable, with a pure white well-laced head over an Incredible dense and shockingly bright raspberry body. The taste profile is powerful, refreshing and balanced, profiling a medium sour/tart raspberry core with some sweetness and acidity. Mid-range carbonation helps punch up the taste and keep it clean through a long tasty finish. Stupendous summer beer!

Smell is very nice heavy raspberry. Taste is super tart and rich raspberry with a mild sourness and a tiny touch of wheat in the aftertaste. Medium body with low carbonation and no foam.

Pours a bright pink with no head. Aroma of raspberries and sour wheat. Taste is sour raspberry jam. Wow this is delicious
