Raspberry cherry weisse. So it's called pHuchsia, right? Because it's bright pink (fuchsia) coloured, but acidic, so pH. It's a me-calibre name and I like the baroqueness of it. Tried on tap at the Draft House in Fitzrovia.
Rude red, slightly pale pink at the edge. Head is virtually non-existent, just a rim of thin bubbles. Steady bead. Looks OK.
Smells fruity; raspberry tartness and a touch of sweetness. Fairly standard and non-descript but delivers what it promises.
Taste is refreshingly tart. Big dark cherry note and fair berry hint although no distinct raspberry. Slight lemony Berliner weisse character, puckering just a bit on the back. Quite crisp and refreshing though. Could be accused of being soft-drinky but for the sharp wild yeast note which is very pleasant.
Fairly thin, non-descript. Some pull on the back from the tartness.
Could use a bit more distinct fruity character. Nicely handled Berliner with good, whelming (in the sense of not over- or underwhelming) tartness but some more fruit character - especially raspberry - would really bring this to life.
