BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!
Quebec, Canada
dieuduciel.com

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.

Poured from the 11.5 oz bottle into a teku glass.
Pours incredibly beautiful bright glowing red. Lots of particulates in here though.
Aromas are tons of fruit and mellow sourness.
Flavor is wonderful. Not overly sour, allowing raspberries to really shine here.
Mouthfeel was very good. Clean.
Overall, a wonderful and delicious beer. Really showcased the raspberries perfectly.

Deep red with a light haze, lots of carbonation and 3 fingers of Pepto-bismol pink head.

Smells sour and of red berries. Slight hefe like plastic quality, and generally acidic.

Sour with an amazingly fresh bouquet of fruity orchards. Very acidic, like a Cantillon lambic in acidity almost, but it has a hint of sweet thats almost undetectable.

Medium body, lots of carbonation, generally dry but balanced finish.

Got at Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! brewery in Ste-Jerome, Quebec today. Drinking near a lake north of Montreal Sept 25th, 2016.
