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.

olio (9941) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2016
341 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. BBE 29.04.2016.
Pours cloudy dark rose red color with no head, some sediment floats around. Very strong raspberry smacks you right to your face, hides all the wheat notes, some gooseberry bush and grapefruits follow. Flavor is also mostly tart raspberries, some grapefruits, mild rose hip and some faint blood orange. Tasty fruity palate, short dry finish. Excellent.

ClubGonzo (5647) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2016
Sample from bottle, shared with X random people in the Cantillon Blåbær 2016 line in Copenhagen. :-) Pours a hazy pinkish red body with a medium white head. Nose is bold raspberry notes, lemon juice, sawdust, wheat and hints of cherries, rose petals and pale malts. Taste is raspberries, lactic yogurt-like tones, lemon juice, red berries and hints of rose petals, wheat and tart cherries. Very refreshing and tasty.

Adamsville (301) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
Apparence : Rouge, semi-limpide, effervescence assez élevée, col blanc moyen, rétention faible. Nez : Framboises fraîches… et framboises! Goût : Framboises, acidité moyenne. Sensation : Effervescence moyenne-faible, corps moyen, petite chaleur, longueur moyenne (acidité de framboises). Bref : Bien bon breuvage aux framboises, difficile de détecter l’aspect bière en arrière-plan, extrêmement rafraîchissante, c’est une bière parfaite d’été! Plus ou moins complexe, son aspect intéressant est que les framboises ne sont pas du tout artificielles.

jaghana (5875) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle 341ml, a cloudy red beer with pink head. Nose is on strawberries and raspberries with the typical fresh yogurt touch in the background. Taste is quite acid, the acidity we can have in the skin of small berries, light sourness. Aroma is on red fruits, lactic, metallic, cooked vegetables. Very long acid / red berries aftertaste.

kraddel (7493) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2016
Pours clear, yet deep red. No head. Smell is very intense fruity. Taste is strong and sharp sour, with a very very dry mouthfeel, yet a bomb of fruityness. Talk about an explosive taste ! the beer ain’t balanced by far , as it builds up between extremes that are not extreme in a good way ( too sharp sourness, too dry, probably not that natural as I’d like to think it is ) yet the taste itself aint bad !

C'est une excellence Bière mais je crois qu'elle est trop acide pour moi. Mais elle est vraiment dans les standards de son style et très réussie...

La bière est rouge, presque bourgogne et présente beaucoup de résidus de framboise au fond du verre. L’effervescence est grande, à un point tel que les résidus non filtrés remontent à la surface telle une véritable fontaine de parc. Au nez, la framboise domine avec conviction. C’est la même chose en bouche, avec un côté surette et un côté framboise qui se marient à merveille. Pour moi, cette Solstice d’été est l’une de mes bières d’été favorites. Elle représente la balance parfaite entre le sucre et le surette. Grande, grande bière.
