Another split with rudzud.
Decent fizzy semi thick head covering, nice lacing, hazy peach orange color.
Nose is nice and complex, light wheat aromas, nice wit and blond malts, light citrus and peel with light wit spices as well. Then fruit, bit of stone fruit, little juicy, light wine like aromas a light red wine not really vinous or huge dark red wine, light musty funk almost Brett but hard to tell, raspberry is there but faint and more like the seed bitterness.the more I nose the more the raspberry finally comes through more.
Taste is so so, big musty funk like, sour funk and wild Brett like flavours, tannic seed and stem, some grape skin must and light wine but barely, hint of toasted oak, and little buttery cracker and barrel. Raspberry is there but still light, more like seed and stem bitter tannic flavor. Finish is dry with more tannic bitter flavours, light sticky and syrupy, flemmy, light vinous must again and light raspberry.
Mouth is med bod, nice fluffy carb, little flemmy.
Overall meh, not nearly as great as I was expecting, raspberry is more of the tannic seed/stem and very little fruit, funk is muted too much, wit beer comes out too strong, the wine barrel is pretty nice but might be what's muting the other great flavors.

Reviewed from notes. On-tap for the 3rd Anniversary Party at the Phoenix Club. 5/29/11.
A: Pours a clear yellow under a huge 2-inch thick white head which quickly fades and leaves spots of lace.
N: Funky, wonderfully sour fresh raspberry, red wine, oak tannins, grass/hay.
T: Bite of astringency, tangy citrusy zest and sour with a wallop of sweet fruits, tannins and vinous notes.
M: Moderate body and semi-full carbonation. Finishes sour and tart, wheaty and fruity.
O: Very good. Went back for more.

A - Hazy golden yellow with a nice white head. Good looking sour
S - Light tart raspberries, lemon, sweet tarts, and oak
T - Soft Berliner Weiss with straw and a light earthy grassy up front. As it goes in there is a light tart presence, sweet tarts and raspberries. Nice soft and balanced
M - Soft mouth feel, light tart aspect, and slightly chalky like after you eat a sweet tart
O - Good sour that is well balanced with light tartness and some good fruit presence from the raspberries
