German inspired sour wheat beer. The sourness, which is quite obvious and dominant in this beer, is obtained by letting the unboiled wort go sour for several days. The end result is a refreshing beer where the sourness is the domineering flavour. This beer is only available once a year in very limited quantities on our anniversary day in September.

Cloudy honey gold hue, with a thick white head, with a wheaty malty, citrusy nose, with some lemony acidic fruitiness, with a subtle tartness in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a zesty, lime, fruity, wheaty character, with a spicy floral hop mintiness, with some fruity, citrusy acidic flavors, giving a faint tartness accent,with a subtle anise spiciness, quite stange!, leading towards a lemony acidic, mild tartness and sourness finish.

aerosol999 (113) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
9mo aged cask at the brewpub, DDC 9th anniversary Appearance: Hazy yeelow gold with a goodly amount of thick white head. Aroma: Sharp and acidic, but clean acidic smooth and lemony. Very appealing. Flavour: Zap! Clean and smooth sourness which doesn’t hide the wheat character of the beer. Lots of citrus peel. No bitterness, no hop flavour. Lemon yogurt. Mouthfeel: Light bodied acid and smooth. Overall: Clean and refreshing very nice a great berliner weisse (but more alcohol) smooth citrusy and lactobacillus or sour mash probably.

Quevillon (3036) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2007
Bu en fut à leur party du 9e anniversaire (12 oz). Blonde semi-blanchie et vaseuse, un peu de collet. Arome semi-sûrette de blé malté, d’épice sucré et d’agrumes légères. Goût sûrette atténué, un peu de blé malté et peu fruité. Un peu déçu!

draught. light white-golden body with no head. aroma has some tart apple wheat properties. body is soft and thin with lemon tartness. it’s mediocre and I’d much rather have one of their other berliner weisses.

Fruity, apple? aroma, hazy yellow/brown, almost no head. Tastes like non-alcoholized cider. Sweet. Ordinary.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2005
Robe blonde voilée surmontée d’une mousse blanche persistente en dentelle. Arômes sures de vin blanc. Saveurs acides de citron balancée par l’amertume du houblon. Léger goût de liège en réchauffant. Intéressant!

Radek Kliber (7301) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 13, 2005
Almost non present crown, hazy gold ash below. Sweet grape, sour nose, late sugar finish. Medium, light bodied, sour but rather flat and gives impression of being a bit simplistic. Late sweet grape accent won’t save this beer.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2005
Not the most pleasant beer to look at, it pours an apparently flat muddy golden color, headless. Upon smelling, it is immediately juicy, tart and lemony with obvious wheat, graham crackers and white pineapple juice reminiscent. It is fairly sour, lactic though definitely not as much as it could be and the complexity seems a bit underdone. Hay-like, dry, quenching, but still leaving me hoping for more. Maybe next year.
