COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional German Berliner weisse beers are tart affairs, often sweetened by the addition of woodruff syrup. Brewed with white wheat malt and fermented with lactobacillus, our tart Berliner riffs on this popular German tradition with the inclusion of fresh raspberries. The delicate and mildly sweet notes of the rasberries offsets the inherent tartness of this weisse beer, making for a intoxicatingly fruity, yet refreshing experience.

Draft at Monks Cafe in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a deep dark red color that looks kind of like a mixture of fruit punch and fake blood from a 70s blacksploitation film. Minimal pinkish-white head that immediately fades. No lacing. The aroma of this beer is bursting with uber fresh, tart raspberry that overpowers almost everything else. Some lactic funk and acidity but the raspberry character is so promient that it doesnt smell(or taste) like a Berliner weiss. Really strong sweet raspberry presence that smells really nice but I wish that it was a bit truer to style. Medium bodied with a nice balance of raspberry sweetness and tart, puckering sourness. Again, the raspberries dominate but its a little more complex than the nose suggests. Very, very sweet with a rush of tart and sweet raspberry flavor that lingers over some lactic funk and citric acidity into a dry, tart finish. Its even a little bit seedy but after a while the raspberry flavor becomes a bit overwhelming. Like the other three Berliners from FB that Ive tried, the traditional characteristics are almost completely overshadowed. Could use more funk, citrus, bread and wheat. Definitely the sweetest of the four Ive tried so far but I did enjoy the fresh raspberry flavor.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2012 Way too tart and sour. Nice aroma but it ends there. Unless you like this tart style of beer, go with their hop gun.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is a gorgeous, radiant pink hue. A miniscule head fades entirely within a few moments. Both the aroma and flavor are dominated by raspberries and pie crust. Add a touch of brettanomyces and that about sums it up. Big pucker factor in the finish. Aggressively tart. Overall, this was enjoyable but not on the same level as the superb Passion Fruit Berliner.

On draft at the Sour Fest, poured a nice pink color, witha romas of fresh cut raspberries, tart raspberry puree, and light funk. Flavor is the same, not overly tart, very drinkable in the heat. Glad this one was here for me to try.

Pours a pink hued red, almost light cranberry in color. Nose is all sweet raspberry. Taste is tons of seedy, prickly raspberries, but a bit sweet. Could be a little more tart, but still refreshing nonetheless.

On tap Cajun sour fest. Fuzzy raspberry, like licking the berry right off the vine. Nice balance between tart and fruit.

6/16/12. On tap at the Cajun Sourfest. Nice pink pour with a good head. Fresh raspberry aroma with a bit of funk. Also a fresh raspberry flavor with a bit of funkiness and graininess. Tart as well. Nice!

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a bright pink color with a thin white head that recedes quite quickly. The nose carries a light bit of cheese, especially as it warms. Behind that is a strong scent of fresh raspberries. Bright and acidic as opposed to musty and earthy. Flavor has an underlying tartness to be paired with the strong raspberry presence. Moderate acidity. Light body. Very good and thirst quenching. Quite nice other than the cheesiness in the nose.
