Bruery Terreux Frucht Yumberry (2016) Berliner Weisse at 4.7% ABV (C$16.13 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 750 ml, packaged on 16-Jun-2016, acquired 13-Dec-2016, reviewed 19-Jan-2018)

Appearance: clear medium gold with one finger of fizzy white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: tart red/black berries, wheat, oak, light funk. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high tart, low bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry tart lightly funky finish. (4/5)

It’s beers like this that are turning me off Bruery. Not that it isn’t good, because it is, but because it’s not good enough to maintain my interest in their continuing onslaught of large numbers of high-priced beers. If they were, say, half the price, I’d probably routinely buy everything they made, but as it is I find myself wondering which ones to bother with – and then wondering why I bother at all. Refreshing, though. (16/20)
