BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada

Style: Berliner Weissbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
German inspired sour wheat beer. The obvious and domineering acidity of this beer is obtained by letting the unboiled wort go sour for several days. The Solstice d’Été is made complete by the addition, during the fermentation process, of a phenomenal quantity of whole fruit (raspberries or mangos or cherries) which compensate for the sourness of the beer. The result is a very refreshing beer where both acidity and fruity flavours dominate wholeheartedly.

This one is surprisingly tart and a little acidic. Since it’s a sour wheat beer, I expected the sourness to be toned down, but I was wrong. haha. Luckily I really like sour, but I bet this one will upset the stomachs of a few people who aren’t expecting the Shock Tart quality.

Very bright red with a quickly dissipating head. Strong natural raspberry aromas. Very strong ripe natural raspberry flavours. Crisp,effervescent and dry, if a little thin. Enjoyable.

Pours with a very red color and a pink head that settles immediately. Aroma is fresh ripe raspberries and some tart. Flavor is more tart than ripe berries, and a bit shallow. Ditto the body. Not a bad drinking beer tho.
