On tap at the brewery during their recent release event and anniversary party.

The beer pours a dark, nearly blue-ish purple color with sensational head retention and lacing. On the nose, it's almsot like sticking your face into a bowl of fruit. There's also some vanilla, lemon and light sour, but the fruit aroma really dominates (not sure I've ever encountered this level of fruit intensity in a beer before). On the palate, while there's still plenty of fruit, the sour component really dominates. Not being a huge sour fan, the sour component wore me out pretty quickly, and I was unable to finish my glass. The sour component really dries up the fruit on the finish, and there really isn't even a hint of sweetness in this beer (finish is very dry and sour). Mouthfeel is pretty full, and there's no doubt this beer delivers plenty of flavor. The finish is long, dry and intensely sour. Alcohol is barely noticeable in this beer.

An interesting beer and obviously an impressive effort. This was probably my favorite of all the imperial Bu Weisse fruit beers that were available at the event, but even so, the sour aspect of the flavor component was just too much for me. Once was enough for me, and no need to try this one again. (1,237 characters)

Dark pink, murky color with pink head. Nice berry aroma with a lactic note. Taste is quite sour with the fruit more in the background. Light body and very dry. Another good Berliner from De Garde. (196 characters)
