First and perhaps best beer I had at this year’s Mondial du Biere in Montreal. Looks like a fresh raspberry cooler with aromas of yeast and raspberry and pies baking. Very tart and refreshing with a slight bitter finish. Nice. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 10, 2005
MIBF ’04 Red in color with a pinkish head,small medium lacing. Aroma of berries,tart raspeberries.Dry tannin like,acidic fruit, winey. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2005
Tap. Cherry-cranberry in colour with a pink coloured head. Aroma of raspberries, cherries, some wheat, quite sour and tart. The flavour was of a sour berry medley (mainly raspberries of course), very criap and refreshing. Puckering acidic mouthfeel, medium-light body, high carbonation. Finishes with a lingering raspberry sourness. A beautiful summer beer.

Pint at the brewpub, about three times in the last week. Oily cranberry with no head or lace (as desired)...fresh, somewhat green raspberry nose, a bit tart, vanilla and sourdough emerging with time...intensely sour, at times nearly vinegary mouthfeel, mouthpuckeringly intense with tart green fruit throughout, light and crisp, a bit cidery and peppery towards the finish...long, long every so long acidic finish.

Had a sample at the Mondial 2005, and went to the pub to explore further...Malicya (21) - Charny, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Appearance: Ruby red, with a pink head! My girlfriend loved it! Raspberry aromas, but with a concealed yeasty funk, and a catty, lactic twang to it.
It’s tart, but not as tart as last year’s Solstice d’été. The Amourette is more acidic and the taste and mouthfeel is reminiscent of raspberry seeds. Refreshing, but half a pint was sufficient for me.
Beautiful light pink color. Surprising sour-raspberry taste. A good refreshing summer beer ! beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2005
Sampled at le Mondial de la bière 2005. Pours a cranberry red color with a ring of white lace. Sour aroma of raspberries. The flavor is very sour with a lot of raspberries, it’s very refreshing. The mouthfeel is dry and the carbonation is moderate. Very good. ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 7, 2005
On draught at Dieu du Ciel with Muzzlehatch, Tiggmtl, Bret Kuhnhenn and his father and sister. 6/2/2005. Served in a weizen glass. Fantastic pink-tangerine-ruby red grapefruit sort of appearance, with different layers of colors, lightly hazy and having a large pink-yellow tinged-white head atop it, plenty of retention and lacing. Aroma is soft raspberries, tart wheat notes and a bit of lactic/sour yeast character. Vanilla and raspberry seeds as well. Flavor is immediately dry, lightly tart from the raspberry flavor and then quite full of wheat. Ends lightly sour, not overly so, not as much as you would expect a full-on b. weisse to be. Though aside from that, the balance and body are wonderful. Not watery, and nowhere near syrupy, cloying or candy-like, this is artfully and tastefully done, with just tart, fresh raspberry flavor. Creamy wheat, vanilla, bits of woody underbrush are lightly present aside from the lactic sourness and raspberries. Wonderfully refreshing and drinkable, with a medium to medium-light body, but no thinning. A real masterpiece, so I think. I have to give this a couple more points overall than normal, just because the execution on this must be so difficult.
