Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse launches
Culture House has launched its ‘Raspberry Berliner Weisse,’ brewed by Tribe Breweries, one of Australia’s largest independent craft brewers, at The Mornington Peninsula Brewery in Victoria.
“We have harnessed the much-loved characteristics of Berliner Weisse and used our carefully curated house culture to bring the yeast to the fore, giving it a deliciously moorish taste that puts a modern Australian twist on a German classic,” said Kristian Martin, head brewer.
Culture House is a new Australian label putting a fresh spin on some of the old world’s most intriguing beer styles.
“While many celebrated beers owe their predominate flavours to malt or hops, Culture House beers feature a distinctive fermentation-driven style that is approachable and refreshing and set to appeal to beer lovers old and new,” said Kristian.
Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse is made with a combination of premium malts and Australian raspberries to produce a deliciously delicate beer that is bursting with zingy, zesty flavours, yet is easy going with a cleansing acidity and a dry spritzy finish.
“The addition of raspberries blends perfectly with the bright, clean acidity of the base beer to give a mouth-wateringly crisp, clean flavour,“ said Kristian.
It pours pink with a foamy white head and a light haze and has a moderate 3.5 per cent alcohol level. A great palate cleanser, it 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, making a great crowd-pleaser when entertaining.
“Culture House Raspberry Berliner Weisse will appeal to beer lovers as well as those looking for an easy-drinking, great tasting alternative to cider and wine,” he said.
Available from BWS and Dan Murphy’s, RRP $20 (4-pack); $5 (single); $75 (24-pack).
