Deep pink with a good white head. Aroma is cherry, strawberry, candy. Light-medium bodied, sweet on the palate with a subtle underlying tartness. Taste is cherry pie, cherry candy, fresh cherries. Yum

A wonderfully refreshing sour wheat beer with cherries. A big fruity punch from the fresh cherries and the high carbonation. A solid sour presence blends well with the fruit and a touch of acidity. Very clean finish. Not cloying at all thanks to a solid tartness. The liquidy body suits the style. Does Dieu du Ciel make a bad beer?

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and deeply red with a small, fleeting, pink head. I can only assume this smells like citric and lactic acids, grains and cherries, because I have a sinus infection. I can’t smell anything today and it’s frustrating. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is tart and fruity – so very nice. Tons of tart cherries and tannic cherry skins in both the flavor and the crisp, fruity finish. Another world-class beer brewed up by Jean-François Gravel! Best brewpub on the planet. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2015
I don’t rate berliners usually this high but man this one is exceptional. Poured a pinkish hue with ample head at the Shelton Fest in St. Pete. Aroma is BIG cherries and raspberries with a slight saltiness brine, tart wild yeasts, and acidity. The taste was delicious. Big fruit up front and center and then it transitions into the more tart and carbded finish. Fruit all the way (my two favs.) Moderate carb and tarness.

Pours a bright pinkish red with a thick, syrupy body and a pink white head a few fingers thick. The aroma is tart, fruity and acetic note underlying. Less tart tasting than the framboise. A light sweetness up front with a pinch of floral note, fresh, tart cherries and a finish of moderate sourness. A very easy sipping brew. kbudd19 (1019) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle. Appearance is light pink with minimal white head. Aroma is barnyard funk, tart fruit, and light sourness. Taste is sea salt, cherries and light sourness/acid. Crisp dry finish, watery mouthfeel. Very refreshing, I like the rasberry version better but this is still really good! Martinus (4686) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2015
Clear bright red colour, white head. Aroma of cherry, butter, buttermilk, hint of lemon. Sour flavour, cherries, cherry pips. Finish butter and cherry.

Bottle at THT tasting. Pink pour, no head. Aroma of butter, cherries and quite fruity. Flavor is quite sour, fruity and a bit thin. Refreshing. Benzai (16311) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2015
