Fruit Snack begins with our house lactobacillus culture for bright acidity. Then we age the beer on hundreds of freshly squeezed limes and tons of Blackberry purée which give the beer its beautiful colour.
Berliner Weisse is a sour wheat ale by style, nicknamed the Champagne of the North. And it dates back 500 years, originating in the region around Berlin, Germany. But today, only a handful of German breweries are left brewing Berliner’s. Now it’s heavily influenced by craft brewers around North America (and beyond) adding their own twists on the traditional style.
Weisse means wheat, and this beer uses a malt bill consisting of 50% Canadian grown wheat adding body and 50% German Pale malt. But what about all that fruit in the beer? Well, Germans often play with the character of a Berliner Weisse by adding one of two syrups, either rot oder grün (red or green). The red is usually a sweet raspberry syrup and the green is a more traditional grassy herb known as woodruff. Our BiG twist on the style uses blackberry purée and fresh squeezed limes to add body, flavour and take the beer to a galactic level of zippiness!
Fruit Snack is complex, fun and stirs conversation wherever it’s pouring.
