3.9/5  rDev -12.2%

500 mL growler poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Pink and hazy. No head. Bright color, but kinda lifeless.

Smell - Great raspberry aroma. A little bit musty and lemony behind it. Simple.

Taste - Intense raspberry. Sweet raspberry juice up front. Lemon lime flavor after the sweet raspberry dies down. Tartness builds into the finish with a bit of grain.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Dichotomous sweet and sour flavors.

Overall - Very nice fruit. I feel like it could have been a bit more sour, though.

From swing-top growler acquired at the brewery during their Mayan Holiday event in December 2012...

Poured into my Great Lakes 25th Anniversary bruges hybrid...

A. Nooner pours a very attractive blood orange. Dark pink/red in hue, very cloudy, it practically glows in the glass. A half finger of bubbly white head emerges but quickly dissipates to a faint trace. A few scant bubbles line the glass. For as long as this has spent in the back of my fridge, it looks very nice. I love the coloring on this.

S. Very fruity and bright. Lots of cherry, strawberry, even hints of raspberry. Mildly tart and funky, a little bit of vinegar. The graininess from the wheat adds a little sweetness. Smells fantastic.

T. Sweet cherry, strawberry, a good bit of tartness, funk, some wet hay, vinegar, grainy wheat. Very very fruity, juicy, and plush. Fairly acidic and funky as well, but balanced nicely with the sweetness. Top notch Berliner here.

M. Moderate-light carbonation that has held up well over the past 9 months. Very nice balance all around. Tarter than the average Berliner, but still light and refreshing.

O. This is an excellent Berliner, and a great example of the quality beers Florida breweries are producing in this style. It held up extremely well for nearly a year in my fridge. It's fruity, tart, refreshing, and ultimately very complex. It's a brilliant beer, and I'm extremely hopeful that I can hit up another one of these releases.

Growler was several months ago (filled December 2012 and tasted June 2013); poured a dark pink color. The nose picked up muddled tart raspberries, strawberry, and some light lactic acid. The flavors picked up the same attributes, not overly tart aftertaste, light vinegar, slight curd, but a really nice tart raspberry flavor overall. Mouthfeel was out of the question since the growler was from the End of the World Party last December held at the brewery where I also got to try the RareR D.O.S. growler as well. I have never been a big fan of tarty beer and drinking from a growler several months old doesn’t do justice for me.

**REVIEW NUMBER 300**

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 500 mL growler into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a pinkish red over tints of copper. Quite hazy. Forms a big fluffy white head on top of lots of visible carbonation.

S: Sour, funky. Cherry and raspberry and strawberry? That's what I'm getting. Maybe some rhubarb bite also. Either way, berry fruitiness, with apples, lemons and lactic tang.

T: Follows the nose. Sweet and tangy, fruity (strawberry/cherry/rhubarb again), lactic and funky.

M: Light body with a dry tangy finish. Tons of carbonation sensation - nearly champagne-like in the tingly mouthfeel. ABV, whatever it is, is well-hidden.

O: Wow. This is really, really good. I wish I had more information on this beer. The only description Doug gave was that it was a "blended berliner". Not sure what was blended into this beer, but the result is definitely a winner. Wish I had more.
