Bottle: Poured clear bright reddish color ale with a medium size foamy head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of fresh tart raspberry and cherry notes is quite pleasant. Taste is also a perfect mix of tart notes with some fresh raspberry and cherry notes with hints of residual sugar notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Nice mix of fresh fruit notes with lots of raspberry notes.

Pours a beautiful, mostly opaque, pinkish-orange red. Nice one centimetre raft of tight white bubbles. Visible carbonation. Good lacing.

Aroma smells a little like Rockets/Smarties fruit candy, cotton candy, some citrus and vague berry undertones.

Flavour is a mix of tart Berliner Weisse, lemon, orange, strawberry, with some almost tropical undertones, aftertaste is wheat and a pleasant sourness. Well carbonated, prickly texture. Would be a fine beer for sitting outdoors and enjoying in warm summer weather.

Overall, an interesting interpretation of the style. Would love to try again on draft sometime.

Didn't expect anything like that as far as the look! A beautiful pinkish-red beer that reminds me of a cherry-flavored beer. Delicate smell of citrus and raspberries, a little acidic too. Tastes amazing, like strawberry-flavored soda with a weak carbonation (good carbonation for a beer though, but for a soda it'd be weak.) I get some strawberry lemonade taste too, really a good one. I wish they would have released it in the summer in bigger quantities, I would've drank it all summer long!

A: gorgeous reddish orange color, capped by a fizzy rose coloured head of minimal retention and no lacing.
S: A touch acidic, but moderate raspberry presence.
T: starts with a touch of sweetish raspberry, before a lemon rind and raspberry tart finish, but none too sour, more like raspberry pie. There is, unfortunately, a bit of a soapy or medicinal quality in the finish too, though it fades before the linger, but it detracts slightly as does the low moderate sourness.
M: nice prickly effervescence with a light body.
O: decent but not stellar with some things in need of fine tuning.

Looks very nice, pale pink. It's a little soapy. Smells exactly like windex which is definitely not something I look for in a beer. Taste is quite unpleasant also. Bad keg ? Or bad beer? Either way, I will not spend another dime to find out.

Great beer! I discovered it at the Pub Brouhaha in Montréal. I'm not sure what that person is talking about with the reference to Windex. I love Berliner Weisses and this one is wonderful.

Hazy pink color with moderate activity. Foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of sour candies, medicinal, cherries, raspberries, cranberries, lemon, roasted malts, a little floral. Highly sugary while heavily pleasantly sour in a soft way, not too astringent. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Medium to strong strength finish, last a while, with a candy like feel of sour fruits, and a nice roasted feel with a dash of caramel. A little vinous and dry. Overall good quality craft. Nice flavors, feels like a cooler without the crappy ingredients, and it ends like a beer. Accessible if you can handle the sourness, more like a desert kind of beer you take after a meal. A funky berliner weissbier.

Pinkish red (my wife says the inside of a ripe papaya) slightly misty with a thinish head and no lacing. Aroma of strawberries with some funk. Flavour of an old fashioned sour fruit lollipop.
