Back in August 2016 we featured the Alvinne/Laugar collaborative brew Ich Bin Ein Berliner Weisse.  For those with a good memory, this is the same base beer, with the addition of raspberries.

The Berliner Weisse was made with 20% rye and 30% wheat, and then spends 8 months in oak barrels.  Raspberries are then added, and the beer left to infuse for a further 4 months.

The result is an attractive pinkish coloured beer, that gives off a massive nose of raspberry, a little citrus and a background full of subtle spikes from the amazing Morpheus yeast Alvinne use.

The taste is deceptively tart and a little sour, though you expect a sweeter beginning with that nose full of raspberries.  Allow three sips for the palate to adjust before you can start apprasing this beer (or screwing up your face for those not a fan of sour beers). 

A real thirst-quencher, this is a perfect afternoon beer.  Not really that sour, but tart enough to induce and eye-twinge right to the last sip.  I personally like this beer served a little cooler than most, perfect straight out the fridge.
