COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our refreshingly tart Leuven and added a heavy dose of raspberries, about 16 pounds per barrel. The result is a deliciously floral fruit beer that is dry and crisp. Cheers to summer!

Pour on tap at Astoria bar, clear pinkish pour with thin off white head, aroma brought slight lemon, biscuit, touch of yeasty notes with a slight hint of raspberry, touch of a jammy note as well. Taste is a mix of slight raspberry jam, kind of lacking in that with some hints of lemon, corn, slight biscuit in there with a touch of yeast, finishing fairly sweet, dry.

Bottle @ Aaron’s basement. Red-orange pour with a white head. Nose is sweet raspberry, nice funk, and grass. Light herbs, lemon peel, and some tartness. Grass, raspberry, and some earthy funk on the palate. Lemon peel, light tartness, and some herbs. Just a bit of yeast.

Lukaduke (2184) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a hazy pinkish blonde color with a finger or two of fizzy foam. Lots of earthy raspberry, grainy wheat, touches of tartness and funk. Dusty raspberries really hold this beer together... Refreshingly easy to drink... full yet light mouthfeel is strange but enjoyable.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Tap at Funkwerks - how can this be 4%when the base beer is 5.7%? - anyway, we have quite a tart and refreshing fruit berliner here - strongly tart aroma of pronounced natural raspberry (flesh, skins and all), lactic acidity, light.wheat - full but soft carbonation - moderate tart raspberry, moderate lactic notes, light savoriness, even a touch of funk - light, crisp, refreshing - excellent beer.

Ratman197 (9797) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2013
On tap at Hops and Pie poured a hazy reddish amber with a small lingering pink head. Aromas of raspberry, straw and light grassiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, raspberrey and light yeast with a crisp dry lingering raspberry finish.

bubbleflubber (1826) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery, this pours pinkish with a wispy head that leaves sudsy lace. The nose is of citrus and light must. Flavors of tart raspberries, yeasty esters and finishes with a moderate funkiness. Light and crisp mouthfeel, this is a great summer brew that quenches the thirst white remaining sessionable.

Tap @ Funkwerks. Pours a hazy bright orange appearance with a cream colored head. Lightly tart raspberry, tangerine, light lactic, somewhat funky aroma. Slightly tart, light lactic, a bit grassy, wheat, refreshing flavor with a dry finish. Fun beer.
