On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Pours cloudy deep red with small off-white head. Fruity, raspberry, citric, bit sweetish and moderate tartness. Light bodied, easy drinkable and refreshing. Nice.

20/VIII/16 - 33cl bottle @ Gents Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2016-898)

Little hazy bright red beer, no head. Aroma: lots of raspberries, no head. Aroma: lots of raspberries, indeed, bit funky, sourish, metallic. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots and lots of raspberries, nice acidity, lovely beer. Aftertaste: more real raspberries, sourish, lemony touch, lovely sour beer!

Alengrin (4467) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2016
Kernel’s take on the present craze surrounding Berliner Weisses flavored with actual fruit, this one with raspberry. At GBF. Loose and unstable, bubbly head quickly dissipating, ruby red colour with pinkish hue. Aroma of fresh red sweet raspberry, tomato juice (as usual in a raspberry beer), violets, roses, lemon zest; vivid fruity, sour onset, red raspberry in full glory with a lemony acidic edge, softish carbo, supple mouthfeel, very lightly bready and a tad soapy, fruit and lactic tartness persisting and cutting through it all, aftertaste has again that tomato-like quality often found in beers made with actual raspberry. In the same league as the raspberry version of Ich Bin Ein Berliner made by Alvinne and Laugar, both in terms of content and quality.

Smell of straight raspberry spritzer. No head, somewhat dull sour taste, is this beer? A bit watery. I love this brewery, but I would not say this is a good take on a Berliner Weisse.

Unde (859) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2016
Reddish juice looks with not much head. Aroma has lots of sweet raspberries, sour berries. Taste is sour at first then raspberries pop up with sweet notes. Lightish body and medium carbonation.

Saeglopur (1668) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 30, 2016
330 ml bottle, bottled 08.05.15
Red, hazy body, with a small, frothy, off-white head.
Aroma of funk, barnyard, sour berries, red apples, sugar.
Taste follows this, with some more ripe pears.
Medium to light slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium sour, a bit dry, fruity, a bit funky.

Very nice. Easy and fresh, but also really aromatic and diverse for the ABV. Very fruity and with just the right amount of sourness. Perfect summer beer.

butelka, warka do 27.08.2017 (dwa lata waznosci). Czerwoniutkie landrynkowo piwo ze szczatkowa piana ktora i tak zaraz znika. aromaty... no maliny, maliny, maliny.. do tego troche cytryny. co ciekawsze, te maliny w aromacie wcale nie sa jednoznacznie kwasne. sa i kwasne i slodkie - fajny efekt. W ustach kwasnosc dosc wysoka o nieco mlecznno-kefirowo-cytrynowym charakterze. nieco dretwieje jezyk. pozniej ciut ciut chlebowych. mam wrazenie, ze w posmakach sol, ale nie wiem, czy to nie jakas zmylka percepcyjna. Bardzo malo zlozone prawde powiedziawszy ale zarazem bardzo intensywne. niskie+ wysycenie, malo ciala, praktycznie brak goryczki, oczywiscie brak czegokolwiek z alko sie kojarzacego. Na sniadanie jak znalazl. az szkoda, ze nie ma upalu, jeszcze lepiej by pasowalo. bdb
