If you love rosé for its coiffability but feel like a change, then opt for a refreshing Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse. This German style wheat beer is deliciously light and crisp with a pretty pink hue and comes in an eye-catching hot pink coloured can.
Brewed at The Mornington Peninsula Brewery in Victoria by Tribe Breweries, one of Australia's largest independent craft brewers, Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse is set to get tastebuds tingling for beer fans old and new.
"While brosé drinkers are on the rise (blokes drinking rosé), we are seeing many women switching onto craft beer for its great taste and variety of flavours," said George Stupart, senior brand manager, Culture House.
Beer lover Angie Hulme, from Sydney said she loves craft beer styles because they're fresh and tasty.
"Give me a nice refreshing beer any day over a glass of wine any day! My partner and I like to unwind with a craft beer of our own choosing, or we grab a selection with a snack platter and have a mini tasting to see which ones we like the best!"
Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse is part of the 'sour' variety of beer that is popular with craft beer lovers.
"As with sour foods such as sour lollies, citrus or pickles, many people develop a love of sour tasting foods once they have acquired the taste for them – the same goes for sour beer," said head brewer, Kristian Martin.
He said the addition of raspberries to Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse adds a beautiful flavour balance to counteract the traditional tartness.
"The flavour of the raspberries marries perfectly with the bright, clean acidity of the base beer to give a mouth-watering taste that is incredibly refreshing."
With a moderate 3.5 per cent alcohol level, Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse makes an easy-drinking alternative to cider and sparkling wine – perfect for enjoying at barbecues and picnics.
A fantastic palate cleanser, it pours pink with a foamy white head and a light haze and tastes great with cheese and complements fried or grilled meats such as sausages and steaks, making it perfect for barbecues. It also pairs nicely with deserts such as cheesecake and chocolate, as the cleansing acidity balances out the sweetness, making a great crowd-pleaser when entertaining.
