In celebration of the end of summer (just a bit warm for me) I thought I’d celebrate the beer I drunk the most this summer, @waywardbrewing Raspberry Berliner Weisse. Once known as Sour Puss (I loved that name), Wayward changed their core range around slightly in October 2018, putting it in cans, renaming them and adding a couple. I’m glad this beauty stayed. A constant in my fridge over the warmer months, it is exactly what a Berliner Weisse should be. Tart, fizzy, light (but with enough complexity to make it interesting) and slammable. Perfect after the beach or mowing the lawn!! Pours a cloudy rose pink, with frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Strong raspberry fruit aromas, with spicy wheat and a lick of vinegar. Immediate, puckering tartness, full of raspberry, sour Granny Smith apples, spicy wheat, back end raspberry sweetness and a long dry finish. Great interplay between the sour/sweet fruit. High carbonation.

3.9/5. Trent.
