COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re totally Frucht around here. In fact, we may just be filled to the brim, with excitement, that is. Our threshold is 250 BBLs, to be more precise. That’s the total capacity of each oak foeder at Bruery Terreux. One is dedicated exclusively to Frucht, our series of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from its fermentation in the large oak foeder vessel. Each installment in the series will feature a new fruit, or Frucht, if we’re Sprechen sie Deutsch. This installment has yumberries added, which is our first time flirting with this funky fruit. Prost!

ClarkVV (6893) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 28, 2017
750mL bottled 2016, shared by AdamC on 7/7/17.
Light pink-straw golden with a moderately-high clarity and a tan-beige head showing moderate retention.
Nose is bright, lightly tart and acidic strawberry-raspberry fruit with lactic acid, not overdone, following up through the middle and biscuity wheat on the finish that softens the acidity. This must have been incredibly fruit-forward when young, but here the fruit and lactic acid are well-integrated with the beer, yet it seems to have lost no brightness, as the tannins and poignant acidity still keep it perky and light. Very authentic, well-expressed fruit and ample malt/wheat behind it with no flaw or alcohol.
Nicely dry and with surprisingly moderate acidity in the mouth. Yep, another hottenroth-based beer that tastes great. Juciy and good acidity but again it’s well-integrated with malt and wheat, as tight carbonation and a malty, well-attenuated body provide a comforting texture but allow the acidity and carbonation room to maneuver to a bright, bubbly, crisp finish replete with plentiful strawberry, cherry and raspberry notes. Very low oak/wood character; really just texture-forming tannin. No flaw or alcohol.

750 ml shared by AdamChandler, color is a lightly hazy orange / golden hue with small fizzy head. Aroma is lemon juice, strawberries, raspberry like. Flavor has a nice level of tartness, the berries is indescribable. Half raspberry / strawberry hybrids.

The berries and sour lemon is blended together pretty well, Light body with a effervescent tingle over the tongue. I drank an entire snifter and it was pretty easy going down.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a pink, straw color with a small white head. Aroma was incredibly tart sweet berries. Pixie stick sweet and sour notes, I love tart beers, but this was almost too tart. Serious acid/vinegar on this one. Even writing this review 20 hours after I had it and I think I still taste some of it. Finish was tart with the ever so light hint of vanilla and oak.

Mep3222 (1659) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Delicious sweet tart taste of the berry and sour. Lactic maybe 4 of 10. Slight sweet berry, almost like blueberry and raspberry. Really delicious.

olsvammel (7292) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Tart and fruity smell. Very tart taste, fruity. Strong tart bite in this. Would not peg it as a berliner weisse in a blind tasting. Nice though.

3.7
beer-yum (1900) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 24, 2017
Tart aroma in a golden pour. Big sour taste with hint of tart strawberry in the body. An excellent example of the style that only lacks a little of the subtlety of the Belgian masters.

3.7
Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Bardzo wytrawne i kwaśne, owocowe. Bardzo smaczne piwo, ale dość agresywne.
