"glad i got to try all 3 hopfenstark brews. if i’d only had one, this would have been it, and it was BY FAR the least impressive of the 3. not really working well as a sour or a fruit beer. the raspberry is understated, as is the sourness. it’s kinda like Fort without the abv and the body. not was i was hoping for. a bit muddled, but still decent, just not in comparison to their other brews or to others in this style."

Spab (2573) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
750 ml bottle at Volo. Pours a hazy pinkish orange with white head (maybe a hint pf pink) and tiny floaties. Aroma is dry, tart raspberries, light sour tree fruit and wheat. Flavour is dry, tart raspberries, effervescent white wine character and wheat. Tart raspberries in finish. Lively carbonation. Quite refreshing and nice.

sudomorph (711) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle at Barvolo. 5.5%. Pours a pale, golden/peach with a thin, white head. Aroma is a nice, semi-sweet raspberry. Taste is very slightly bitter/tart with smooth notes of raspberry. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Dry finish. Overall a really nice fruit beer. Smooth raspberry for sure.

Elle est blonde-rosée et limpide ayant un mince voile à sa surface. Des arômes de papier mouillé et de framboises qui semblent trop mûres. En bouche, c’est acidulé et suret sur les bords. Des épices mêlées à une effervescence prononcée semblent brouiller les cartes. Par moment, une impression de blé courtise les papilles. Légère déception quand même.(860-181013)

Plutôt pâle, couleur or blanc, elle laisse échapper des notes assez puissantes de framboises, tel que prévu. Douce en bouche malgré une petite pointe acidulée, elle n'envahit pas avec ses fruits, et si elle a un petit côté aqueux, elle emploie bien ce fait en étant désaltérante. Pas mal du tout pour uke fruitée, mais elle ne soulève pas les passions.

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a pinkish whitish orange with a short lasting white head. Aroma is sugar, field berry, but mostly, raspberry. Flavor is raspberry, tropical fruits (pineapple, oranges), but generally feels like a regular witbier...Some tartness, unripe, wild fruit flavor, with a touch of herbal bitterness. Light body, watery mouthfeel, weak to medium carbonation. Okay, I guess.

Light head. Notes of yeast and cereal medium fruitiness. Really nice light body. Solid summer beer.

Part of the easter Hopfenstark cellar purge since im visiting quebec very soon. Blonde pour, pink hues. Decent carbonation despite sitting in the basement for a while. Sour raspberry in the aroma, barnyard funk, yeast. Lots of funk up front, hints of fresh raspberry, wheat, fairly tart. Refreshing, lighter body. Age did this one some favours. Very drinkable.

On tap at Prohibition Pig last weekend. Pours golden with a slight pink hue. The nose is full of earthy raspberries, a bit of spice, and mild acidity. Flavor balances the base with underlying raspberry flavor and acidity quite well. Light body with crisp carbonation. Very easy drinking. Excellent beer.

Lightly tart and a bit artificially sweet and fruity. Interesting saison like elements add to the beer with esters and a bit of peppery bite. The raspberries are big in this and overall pretty nice.
