COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional German Berliner weisse beers are tart affairs, often sweetened by the addition of woodruff syrup. Brewed with white wheat malt and fermented with lactobacillus, our tart Berliner riffs on this popular German tradition with the inclusion of fresh raspberries. The delicate and mildly sweet notes of the rasberries offsets the inherent tartness of this weisse beer, making for a intoxicatingly fruity, yet refreshing experience.

On draft for the Funky Buddha 1 year anniversary. This beer stole the show that night. I had tasted previous treatments but this was just incredible. The red ruby color really gives insight to what the aroma and flavor hold. Raspberries all the way, along with a solid sour presence as well. This should be label a sour in my opinion but whatever they call it I’m just glad they made it.

PhillyCraft (5312) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at the Den. Pours resembles a grapefruit mimosa, with minimal head and lacing. Aromas of ultra funked and butted out sour dough, raspberry, tons of yeast, weird cheese, wet wood. Taste is the same with some grapefruit, raspberry jam, funky yeast, and wood complexity. Serious funk. Awesome

Draft at the Buddha. Nose is hugely sour with a good bit of tart raspberry. Raspberry hits you on the front of the palate, and then its fairly strong lactic sourness and a tart raspberry sour bite that finishes it off. Fantastic.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2015
Tap. This beer is beautiful! Pours blood orange hazy and milky with light pink creamy head. Aroma has tons of raspberries, ripe and un-ripe ones. Ice-cream, fruit, sherbet, juicy cranberries, sour, tart wheat un-ripe pear. Taste is sour and tart raspberries, that, lactic acidity, yoghurt, sweet berries, black berries. Super refreshing! Long lingering tart and dry raspberry finish. Very creamy full body for style with sparkling carbonation.

On draft. Pours a deep pink with a white head. Nose is some tartness along with big raspberries and a big tart character. Flavor follows: big tartness and some nice complimentary fruit flavor. Light to medium in body and lingering fruit and tart. An insanely good berliner.

wedgie9 (2585) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Tasted at a tasting in mid-2012 from a bottle shared by rustyham, big thanks. Pours bright red, almost pink, with a thin pink head that quickly disappears. The nose is straight fresh raspberry with some sour lemon underlying. The flavor is the opposite, with the sour lemon taking front seat and the fresh raspberry coming through as a secondary note. The body is very light with lively, nearly sparkling carbonation, and a long sour raspberry finish.

Draft at the Funky Buddha Lounge 3rd anniversary. Snifter. Awesome pink-red pour with a thin light pink head. No lacing. Aroma is very raspberry and an acidic funk. The taste is mostly raspberry, lemon and passionfruit. Acidic and tart. Very light and refreshing. Mild carbonation. Fruity, raspberry finish. Oh so damn good.

bottle thanks to Casey... beautiful beer, a bright pink body perfect color, light pink head... smells outstanding, totally true to fresh picked raspberries, sweet but a bit tart, most true raspberry aroma I’ve had... tasting is awesome, a bit down from the nose but still great, mostly fresh raspberries, great balance, could be a touch more sour... try this, best beer to date by FB

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Draft… This beer rocks!… Hazy pink/red ale with no head. The fruity, acidic aroma is bursting-at-the-seams with fresh raspberries – fruit, skins, tannins, the whole nine yards. Light to medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is fruity and quite tart – loads of fresh raspberries here as well. Tangy, fruity finish that dries out a touch. Nothing complex. Very drinkable and very refreshing. More, please! World class stuff.
