4.16/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed out of a brown 22 oz bomber with no dating to be found anywhere on the bottle or label. Poured into a Boulevard Smokestack chalice glass with a thin, wine glass-like bowl sitting atop a sturdy stem and base, like a goblet.

Appearance - Pours a deep ruby pink hue with magenta undertones and a cloudy density that obscures light. The very edges reveal a lighter, lavender colored shade. Head fizzes up to about a half finger of powder white microbubbles, very much like sparkling wine carbonation. Dissipates almost immediately , but leaves a rim of foam around the edge, as well as a moderate film across the surface.

Smell - Tart, lemon notes, and wheaty biscuit with underlying notes of sourdough. The blueberry is present, but surprisingly the grain comes through more along with that lactic sour essence. The blueberry is an accent, an overtone that lends a complexity to the otherwise very straightforward berliner weissebier. Although, I suppose blueberries aren't the most aromatic berries, so perhaps that makes a difference.

Taste - Wonderful mouth-puckering tartness right up front, which then gains depth with a faintly rich (contradictory sounding, I know) fruitiness from the blueberries. Blackberry, lemon juice, blueberry vinaigrette all make appearances along with the sour wheat base. Lingering acidity and dry finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied and light, but prickly carbonation lending to an effervescent mouthfeel.

Overall, this might be my favorite BW style that has fruit added within the brewing process (rather than as a syrup afterwards). I like the fact that it is fruity, but maintains that tart, biting mouthfeel that wakes up your palate. It's probably also my favorite beer out of the few I've had from Evil Twin.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: This poured a nearly opaque pinkish gold (like a pink grapefruit), with lots of fizzy white head.
S: It smelled like wet cardboard and copper hops and vinegar and funky sour yeast.
T: It tasted like white wine vinegar and metallic hops, with some sour yeast and a little unripe apricot. It had a crisp tart aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Bubbly body.
D: This was an ok berliner weisse, but no blueberry was noticeable. It was more like a subpar gueuze, with an uninteresting scent and taste and body. The finish was a bit harsh too, so must be sipped. Age may help, but this was really not worth buying in the first place.

Pours a blueberry almost blood orange hue with a creamy three finger and some considerable clingy lacing very nice looking,the smell is like blueberry pie with a nice sourness aswell,the feel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation and has tastes of sour blueberries,tart wheat and finished like a sour ribena just full of blueberries and overall yes I love this and would buy again.
