Notes / Commercial Description:
Believe it. J. Wakefield Brewing has taken its talents to Anaheim to collaborate on a winning recipe with Bruery Terreux. While the distance from Miami to Anaheim could seem fairly restricting, the decision to brew an imperial Berliener Weisse was low hanging fruit. And of fruits in this beer, which are representative of our hometown cultures and favorite flavors, there are many - including dragonfruit, passion fruit, lime juice and Minneola tangerines. It’s a tart, tropical combination that gives your palate the best opportunity to win.

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Almost neon magenta with a fuzzy neon white blanket--Bruery seems to have learned every lesson JWB could give in this department.

Aroma has a lighter airiness to it than the Miami version, with noticeably contrasting orange and herbal notes, as well as cracker and seedy sesame.

Taste seems to be more sour than the Miami version as well, to the point of almost giving a barrel element, with hints of lime peel and vinous raspberry.

An airy froth lifts the light body with a semi-dry chew.

Appearance is a hazy ruby red and poured with a half finger of bubbly pink head. Head receded into a thin ring very quickly.

Aroma is all tart exotic fruit with some citrus lingering.

Taste follows nose. Huge tart exotic fruits and some lingering citrus like lemon/grapefruit.

Feel is crisp and somehow finishes slightly dry while being incredibly juicy.

Overall a fantastic fruited Berliner. My first from the Bruery and JWB. Love it!

Easily one of the most attractive beers I've ever had the pleasure of pouring. A mixture of purple and pink, leaning more to the purple side, this one looks regal like Harley Race at the end of his career. Light pink head on top, 1/3" range. Aroma hit the sour and purple tropical fruit feels.

I was worried about the taste on paper. An imperial berliner weisse? That makes as much sense as a session barleywine. Nonetheless, wow, this was delicious stuff. I dunno if I've ever had dragonfruit before, but it seems to rock. Its like there is this purple berry like flavor, but without the feet smells and funk that usually goes with it. Good tropical and citrus sour feelz. Carbonation on point. Sure, the sourness and abv (which is actually very well hidden) are pumped up for style, but most importantly, the beer tastes really good. I wouldn't hesitate to call it one of the best fruited berliners out there. Amazingly finishes dry despite all the fruity and sour aspects.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery’s Society. Bottled 3/13/17. Served in a Bruery snifter. Enjoyed 1/31/18.

Pours a vibrant, opaque hot pink with a little over two fingers of pink head. The pastel bubbles fade, leaving some surface wisps and a fairly consistent thin band but no lacing.

The nose is lively and tart. Bright tropical fruit, lime, sour wheat and citrus.

Powerfully sour flavors, beginning with a distinctive note of what I assume to be seedy dragon fruit followed by lime, oranges, kiwi, passion fruit, stale wheat and some vague earthy yeast. Excellent fruit notes with a potent zing.

Medium body with an occasional almost graininess and zesty carbonation. The tart aftertaste continues to burst with tropical and citrus fruit.

Here’s a brew that can be added to the relatively short list of collaboration successes. Great work from The Bruery and J Wakefield and perhaps the most flavorful Berliner I’ve tried. Certainly one I’d grab again if they decided to make more.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear ruby hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of good passion fruit and dragon fruit, light orange and lime juice, nice tartness.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice light tropical fruits, good lime citrus notes. Bright oranges as well. Very nice tartness.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, solid flemmy finish.

O - Overall this was a very solid Berliner with pleasant fruit notes. Would like the tropical aspect to be a bit more prominent.

A- Red with thin fading head and some floaties
S- Citrus, cherries, tropical fruit... tart nose
T- Like tart Hawaiian punch. Tons of tropical fruits going on here. Oranges, cherry, pear, stone fruits
F- Medium, nice carb
O- Good... super fruity fruit punch. Only odd thing is the high ABV for a berliner, but that is the Bruery for you.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a bright ruby color with a one-finger foamy white head that has decent retention

S- tart and fruit with plenty of tropical fruit notes; passionfruit and a hint of citrus. Undertones of wheat and a lacto tartness

T- tropical fruit tartness up front gives notes of passionfruit and dragonfruit, as well as some citric acidic notes of tangerine and lime. Mid-palate brings out a lacto tartness that enhances the fruit notes. The finish is dry and lingers of tangerine and wheat

M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a spritzy mouthfeel and a tart dry finish

O- outstanding tropical fruit notes throughout and remarkably drinkable, delicious

750 ml bottle. Deep pink. Smells very exotic and complex. Dragon fruit might be the dominant aroma. Explodes with complex fruity flavors and aftertaste of citrus. Definitely an Imperial version of this style. Full of tropical flavors. All 4 fruits play off each other and finish in perfect ballence! One of the tastiest Florida Weisse’s I’ve tried.

this is a cool beer, i like a berliner with this much flavor being a little stronger, although i suppose its no more wheat malty than any normal berliner, it just has a bit more structure to it, which i think all the fruit demands. this is very wakefield too in my experience, their fruited stuff is so over the top, and this one certainly is too. it looks like the juice in the pickled beet jar, deeply purple, neon, almost unnatural, obviously the dragonfruit. the aroma is clean citrusy lacto sourness, limey for sure, i get that right away in nose and taste, zesty and clean, but then its also sweet from the fruit. dragonfruit flavor is there giving it a fruit punch vibe, the passion fruit is behind that, perhaps lost a little bit to the tartness, it doesnt jump out at me. the orange element is even further back, but nice with the lime and the acid, and coming out more as this warms up a little bit. not too sour to drink a good amount of, and really pretty tidy in that regard. tons of fruit, you have to like that sort of thing, but this is well made beer, intense in a good way, and one i really enjoyed. always nice when a collaboration lives up the quality of the beers made independently by its participants, and this one did!

750 mL bottle. Deep pink body. Smells of passion fruit and lime acidity. Tastes intensely sour. Strong passion fruit sourness. Lime. A little bit of green vegetal flavor, but it's fleeting. Really sour, but medium light bodied. Far too sour to be drinkable.
