TrimTab Brewing Raspberry Berliner Weisse
TrimTab Brewing Raspberry Berliner Weisse is brewed with raspberry and tart cherry puree, 5% ABV. Canned on 07/07/16, opened on 08/05/16. Thanks to Raymond for the can!
This beer pours with a bright cranberry red color and a fairly decent head for the style, the foam stuck around for a minute or so. The beer smells just about how I would expect it to; I’m getting some earthy but sweet raspberries and just a hint of Berliner tartness. I have to say I was a bit afraid of the oncoming raspberry flavor, but it isn’t really putting me off too much. It isn’t the intense, sugary sweet fruit flavor I’m not a huge fan of. More subtle in the raspberry, but there is absolutely enough there to know it is actual raspberries being used. The Berliner itself seems pretty solid, mildly tart and a touch grainy, it is perfect base for the sweet/tart fruit.
I might not have picked this up on my own accord, but I am sure glad I got a chance to try it.
