Just like you, but different
It’s the BeerJerkNZ beer of the week. Here we have: Boatrocker Miss Pinky Raspberry Berliner Weisse. I’d be expecting something light and easy going with a splash of Raspberry. Apparanty the beer is Pink. This shouldn’t be a spoiler alert.
Boatrocker Brewing Company make the Boatrocker Miss Pinky Raspberry Berliner Weisse in Braeside, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is in the style that is Berliner Weisse – Flavored / Catharina Sour and has an ABV of 3.4%, which is only 99 calories in the can. The slightly larger 375ml can makes this 1 standard drink unit in NZ.
Raspberry aroma is very strong in this one.
It’s Pink! It’s not been that long since I had a pink beer (The Kereru Sea of Pink) which was an IPA.
Looks lovely in the glass, and quite inviting.
The aroma is delightful, and that splash of Raspberry is a revelation, this indeed is both refreshing, with a little tartness and a nice sweetness that carries it.
A beer that says what it is, then it says what it says it does, and it does it really well. If only it was summer and not those weeks when it struggles into Summer, and a reminder that you need to start thinking about those days and evenings and how best to enjoy them, probably with. a beer like this.
The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. Its really quite nice drinking, and despite that sour and tartness is quite the cleanser, although there is a nagging dryness around the finish.

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.Philip himself.
Berliner Weisse style ale brewed with two strains of Lactobacillus using traditional German kettle fermentation, and then a special ale yeast for secondary fermentation. 100kg of fresh, locally sourced raspberries were then added to the fermenter to help give this beer it distinctive colour, aroma and flavour.Brewers Notes
The Flavoured Berliner Weisse is a refreshing, low-alcohol German wheat beer with a clean lactic sourness and a very high carbonation level. A light bread dough malt flavor supports the sourness, which shouldn’t seem artificial. Compared to a lambic, the berliner weisse is generally not as acidic and has a clean lactic sourness with restrained to below sensory threshold funk. Also lower in alcohol content. The beer is flavored with a particular ingredient and the union of the beer’s character with the flavoring element is a critical aspect of the beer (For example: fruits, spices, herbs, vegetables, coffee, honey, chocolate, maple sirup, chilies, nuts, vanilla, liquor – BUT not including Smoked malt, barrel-aging or a Sour element resulting from the brewing process). This style also includes the Catharina Sour beer style, which is basically like a stronger Berliner Weisse made with fresh fruit.
