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.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1248) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Bottle at Fortnight in downtown Providence, RI. Magenta, lightly cloudy with a cm of light-pink head, moderate-poor retention. Aroma is big raspberry, grasses, touch of neutral dry grain dust, bit of hay field underneath, substantial raspberry pith in there too. Body is medium-light weight, oily-watery, bit starchy, medium-light carbonation, medium coarseness, light burn, somewhat creamy, somewhat frothy. Flavor is tart raspberry, some nutty pithy, some drying dead grasses, bit of hay and lake vegetation, very lightly bitter, just a bit of fruit sweetness comes through. This is nice, although I'm not sure if I buy into the super-high ratings of this beer. It's a nice Berliner.

HULK777 (802) - - OCT 6, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2019 Lots of raspberries in the nose. Taste is slightly sour raspberries. As you might guess, the predominant judgement is... raspberries!

pictoman (1570) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2019 Poured from the tap. Cloudy red (like Clamato juice) with almost no pinkish head. (real) Raspberry with light tartness, mild lactose. Great blend with a fitting texture.

JStax (10299) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2019 11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear red with a pink head of foam. Jammy berry aroma with a bit of oaky character. Lactic tartness. Lighter body and medium carbonation.

Marduk (12745) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2019 Tap (Die du Ciel! brewery, Montreal). Amber red color. Small size, fluffy pinkish-white head, stays. Sour, acidic, raspberries, fruity in aroma/taste. Not bad, but way too acidic for me.

HippyHop (1168) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2019 Not sure how I never rated this. Beautiful red pour with a short-lived pink cap. Somehow this manages to smell like fresh raspberries, raspberry jam, raspberry yogurt, raspberry vinegar - it basically smells like everything good you can do with a raspberry. While the nose is quite sweet, the taste is deliciously tart and fruity. Dry fruity finish leaves lingering notes of raspberry and lemon juice. The dichotomy of the sweet aroma and mouth puckering taste really works for me.
