I've had this numerous times on-tap and from the bottle. This review was from the Northdown Berliner event. Served in a tulip.

A - More foam here than the Banhof, and it eventually settles to a thin collar. Salmon-colored body.

S - The draft version seems to have blueberry presence than the bottles, but in general it's not the most expressive fruit. What's there is mostly blueberry skin rather than flesh. Tart, with some mild lemon character, but nowhere near as acidic as the Bahnhof.

T - The taste has a little more tartness to it, amid the berry skins, pale malts, and wheat flavors. Perhaps a tad simplistic, but largely enjoyable.

M - Medium-light body, with crisp, pleasant carbonation. Dry, with mild acidity. Pretty refreshing.

D - It's a well-crafted Berliner with a nice accent of blueberry to it. A tad expensive for what it is, but eminently drinkable and enjoyable. Looking forward to trying the wine barrel-aged version.

Arguably the funniest name and package in the beer game.

A-Pours a very murky, glowing orange with pink undertones. White foamy, sudsy head that fluffs away. Ringy lacing. The body's color is brilliant.

S-Blueberries and an assortment of other tart berries. Underripe raspberries, blackberries and obviously blueberries. A hint of vinous funkiness too.

T-Delectably tart with a very natural blueberry flavor. Fruity sweetness melds with the sourness to make a very yummy mixture of flavors. Wheaty and barnyardy as well. Blueberry, raspberry, strawberry and blackberry. A brilliant Berliner with berry highlights all over the place.

M-Light, crisp, natural and refreshing. Drinks perfectly. I could drink about 7 bombers of this.

O/D-Great name and label but boy, the beer is no slouch either. Not just a gimmick, this is one of the best Berliners I have had. Love the blueberry flavor. Must try.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.

L – Hazy deep amber color with a bit of a pinkish-blue hue and a 2-finger bubbly, fizzy, white head, also with a pinkish hue. Head fades relatively rapidly into a ring of white bubbles around the side of the glass. It’s tough to see through the beer, but it seems very effervescent from the surface.

S – Grainy wheat malt, earthy blueberries, a touch of lactic acid, and some musty yeasty aromas. It honestly kind of smells like a light blueberry cobbler or pie, still with the classic Berliner lactic notes. Really nice.

T – It starts off tart with lactic acidity and rapidly picks up a half-tart, half-earthy blueberry flavor. As the taste progresses, more of the grainy wheat and earthy, musty yeast flavor come through and pair well with the earthy blueberries.

F – Light-bodied, great carbonation, a tart, sticky, and crisp mouthfeel, and a mildly earthy, tart, and very dry finish. A little bit of the lactic tartness lingers for a while.

O – This is an awesome Berliner weissbier. It fits all the characteristics of a good Berliner, plus it has a nearly perfectly-done blueberry character. This is how I wish all fruit beers would be. You have a well-done base beer that is made better by the subtle addition of fresh fruit. Really tasty and extremely drinkable. I would recommend this to any beer drinker, but especially Berliner weissbier fans. Bonus points for the awesome label.

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.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance
Bright reddish/orange (and somewhat pinkish?) with with 3 fingers of tight, white head. Hazy with light carbonation.

Nose
Definite blueberry, raspberry, light grains and a touch of lactic sourness.

Taste
Light-medium lactic sourness (more than what I expected from the nose). Definite notes of blueberry along with raspberry and orange sour patch kids. Tangy wheat, light grains and lemon juice. Good.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, crisp and tart.

Overall
Easy drinking, tart and refreshing. The blueberries were a nice touch to balance everything out. A really nice Berliner.

22oz.

A: Pours a reddish purple with a nice white head.

S: Sweet blueberries in the nose, along with some mild lactic acidity and fresh wheat aroma.

T: Blueberry, lactic, rush of grain, drying berry skin tannins.

M: Light-bodied with frothy carbonation. Carbonation for the style should be high, but not quite this high.

O: Really awesome berry aroma here. The carbonation is a bit overly frothy and there could be more acidity though.

Thanks to AtlCarl, a man who schlepps beer around the country for me, for this one. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

Before the pour, one must admire the artwork on the label, which I'll admit made me smirk. The pour is a cloudy hybrid of peach & pink, with a lively amount of carbonation. Nose is weaker than expected, I have to inhale several units of oxygen to detect a vague fruitiness &, maybe, wheat. Not much coming on.

Justin Blaeber is as bright & bouncy as its namesake. The weiss is on top, a nice shiny, tartness driving the beer. The blueberries aren't overt, but hang around the middle, & they're muted by the tart bite. Fizzy & light on the tongue, & it's disappearing at a rapid rate from my glass.

I would have liked a bit more on the blueberry end; as is, this is a pretty standard berliner with a touch of berry added. Pretty good beer.
