Notes / Commercial Description:
This 4.2% sessionable sour is truly a product of creativity, ingenuity, and luck. In the summer of 2013 we took a test batch of our sessional sour summer ale, Provincial, that didn’t quite hit gravity, and decided to have some fun with it! We added a heavy dose of raspberries. The end result was so delicious, we decided to recreate it! This delightfully tart fruit beer is refreshing, with a citrusy raspberry aroma which transitions to a subtlety sweet and tart finish.

Notes of lemon zest and tart raspberries.

Reddish violet in color with just a wisp of off white head. The nose is all raspberries and is very forward. I'm tasting plenty of raspberries, but it's not as tart as the nose implies. The mouth is acidic, crisp, and moderately carbonated.

This was seriously tart, with just a hint of the raspberry, more so in the smell than the taste. It's similar to the Apricot Provincial, but I think I like that one a little better. This one is very pink, so that may be offputting to some, but I didn't have a problem with it. I just liked the balance and taste of the Apricot version a bit more.

Pours dark pink with big, foamy head. Lots of carbonation. Smells like sweet tart. Light mouthfeel. Rasberry is suitable fruit for sour beer.

Bottled on...No date. Unlike the other Funkwerks beers I've had. Pours red, very little foam and no lacing. Smells of tart raspberries first and foremost. I get some wheat and a smidgen of funk. Tasting an abundance of tart raspberries, wheat, funk, other fruity notes. Reminiscent of New Glarus Raspberry Tart but not quite up to that level. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Excellent and my favourite of the fruity beers from Funkwerks so far.

This beer pours a murky reddish color from the tap. There is little head. What is there is off white.
The nose is very rich with raspberry.
Taste is a tart raspberry flavor. Some bitterness. Not much sweetness.
Feel is a bit watery, but not too bad.
Not a bad beer overall, but not something I would go out of my way for.

It pours a very light hue of pink with a huge head. The aroma is very typical of a berliner weissbier with the added hint of fruit. The taste is fairly tart and balanced by the raspberry. Lots of carbonation.

Poured from a single-serve into a tulip

Pours an unmistakable berry-red, with an interesting murky delivery and plenty of excellent lacing. The raspberry is stout on the nose, along with tart almost malic notes. The flavor is more complex than expected. Tart berry with subtle briny notes, and a touch of yeast. The mouthfeel/drinkability is excellent. Dry but not puckery, crisp but not overdone. Because the berry flavor is mild, it doesn't get old.

A nice brew.
