Thanks to Panny for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.
Pours a murky light orange-red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, blueberry, and other fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with only slightly sour blueberry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the blueberry presence is fairly subdued all around.

A: The beer looks like peach juice and is very hazy pinkish yellow in color with a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that quickly died down, leaving a collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass and some patches on the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sour berries are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has some flavors of lactic acid sourness with hints of blueberries towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't as sour and tart compared to some of the other beers in this style, which makes it very easy to drink. This would probably make for a good introduction to a Berliner Weissbier for someone who is trying the style for the first time.

Appearance: An impressive head caps the mauve-tinted amber liquid; the lacing slips down the side of the tulip rather quickly
Smell: Grainy bread with lactic lemon and blueberry elements
Taste: The grainy bread flavors underpin, up front; lactic fruit (lemon and blueberry) build through the middle and linger with the bready malts rejoining in the finish
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation
Overall: I wouldn't know Justin Timberlake from the Back Street Boys (nor do I want to) but this is one enjoyable beer

Perverted to the core, the marketeering of this beer is simply not right. Its all of what's wrong with the world as I feel ashamed simply looking at its label. Excuse me while I go shower...
Hazy mauve in color, the ale releases a delicate lacy creme that slowly recedes but regenerates easily with a swirl of the glass. Light on lace, the ales acidity gets the better of its foam character, but that's to be expected.
Lemony to the scent, a musty tartness wafts about with complementary notes of dry cider and white wine vinegar. But then an even more sturdy fruit note emerges- its the unmistakable blueberry notes, and not the artificial candy blueberry flavor but true vine-picked blueberries in all its musty tartness and and robust earthiness.
Its taste is highly lemony, but lightly salty, cork-like and sour with the taste of white grapes, light vinegar, wine and crab apples. Its lemon and lime-type sourness folds in a bright blueberry taste with all its tart citric acidity and little of the fruictose- keeping the beer clean, crisp and dedicated to the taste of Berlinerweiss first.
Light bodied throughout, the beer's sheer sourness causes a lightness on the palate, aided with the bold spritzy texture of champagne. Thinning late, the would-be astringency of blueberry skins is buffered nicely by the light bready after texture of wheat.
After the bottle is forcefully discarded, what remains in the beer is outstanding. The beer doesn't get in the fruit's way and the fruit doesn't get in the ale's way and this creates a harmonious blend and is still well-infused.

This beer was brewed twice although they are different. One batch at Evil Twin and a second batch in collaboration with Westbrook.
No head really on a murky pink, really grapefruit meat colored body. No lacing. Aroma is of musty strawberry, blueberry and lemon citrus. The nose is strong and tart overall. Flavor is as tart as you would expect for the style with more of what was encountered in the aroma with citrus, blueberry and strawberry on a wheat base. Perfect degree of tartness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Flavorful beer, I am very interested in trying the original Evil Twin version for comparison.

22 ounce bottle - Hop City in Birmingham, Alabama.
Appearance: A softly hazed, orangey body hit with a little tinge of rosiness. A white head foams up and drops out of sight just as fast.
Smell: Though distinctive, the blueberry scent isn't altogether effusive, but does stand out against the modestly scented wheat malt base.
Taste: Lightly sweet, lightly sourish blueberry countered by a puckering punch of citric lemon and give a sprinkling of table salt. Faint straw-like wheat well washed with sparkling mineral water. Tart, lemony, acetic finish
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Amply carbonated, fine in texture, a bit like a champagne.
Overall: Simply dreadful packaging, but the beer was fairly nice.

Murky rosy orange body, rosy pinkish toned foam. Quick finger of foam rises and settles in a couple of minutes.
Flinty minerals from the wheat, distinctive fresh blueberry aroma, very slight sweetness.
Tart blueberry taste, some crisp lactic sourness, clean finish with a little bit of residual fruit skins. Moderate carbonation, a little bit gassy. A quick swirl brings back a finger of foam right away. Minerally wheat, crisp, fruity. Blueberry is distinctive and a clear common thread from the color, to the aroma, and the taste (even the lulzy goofball label). I was sold when I saw Westbrook on the label, and this one is legit.

Pours cloudy a bit. Nose is very mild on blueberries. Flavor is kind of a sour blueberry thing. The blueberries are definitely dominant, and any berliner weisse character that might otherwise be here is blown out by the fruit. It's always nice to pick up a new berliner weisse. I wouldn't mind one with a bit more punch on it though.

Pours an effervescent pinkish hued orange with a pinky of pearl colored head. No head retention or lacing
S: Grassyness, a little berry tartness
T: Serious tartness, a little blueberry, some lemongrass up front. Tart blueberries, a slight touch of lemon & a hint tangerine peel as this warms, a little wheatyness there as well. Finishes with very tart blueberry, & a touch of lemon
MF: Light bodied, delicate carbonation
Super drinkability, if this wasn't so bloody expensive, I'd drink this all summer. Not 100% married to the style, but this is a damn good beer
