The latest release in Bruery Terreux's Frucht lineup is this tart Berlin-style wheat beer that's aged in oak foeders with boysenberries. Balanced, complex and immensely enjoyable, it pours a gorgeous purple-ruby color, with a fluffy light-pink head that lingers. The bouquet is massively fruity, but cleanly and attractively so, boasting intense fruit aromas of mixed berries, plum and vinous grape tones, with additional notes of oak spice, leather, barnyard funk and dried grass. The light-bodied palate offers more of the same, with vibrant fruit flavors that are lifted by high carbonation and a bright, tart acidic seam.
