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.

Poured a cloudy pink with minimal head and lace but lots of carbonation. A strong blueberry aroma with some tart and sour notes as well. I find the beer to have a good balance between sharp sourness and lively carbonation and both funky and tart blueberries, although I must add the blueberries give off a touch of sweetness at times. Easy to drink with a light body, I've not had too many beers of this style but this one is a keeper.

650ml bottled poured into an Evil Twin Tørst Wine Glass.

The beer pours a light apricot color, hues of orange and light amber, hazy complexion with a fizzy head, pinkish white color, that rises about 2 fingers high out of the beer and dissipates quickly leaving no behind. The aroma is nice, lots of tart blueberry, a little funk, straw, lemons, and some lactic sour qualities. Nice blueberry character on the tongue, strawberries are there too, with some light funk, straw and mineral qualities with a bit of citrus that is tart and just a bit sour. The body is lively, lots of carbonation, a bit juicy, that finishes lightly dry.

Verdict: Very nice Berliner from Evil Twin, one of the better examples of a Berliner with fruit. The Blueberry comes across nicely, a great summer beer.

On tap at Appalachian Vintner, Asheville NC

A- pours a hazy peach color with a small rapidly vanishing head, that leaves just a ring around the edges

S- light and fruity with citrus notes and blueberry

T- light, tart and fruity, notes of peach and blueberry. Finish is astringent and bone dry, crisp wheat linger

M- light body with moderate, fizzy carbonation. Crisp and refreshing finish

O- my first of the style, very fruity and refreshing, just enough tartness to make it go down fast

A. It has a redish, orange color with a pinkish hue (looks like Iced Tea). It has a small white bubbly head with limited lacing. Opaque

S. Very mild malt and metallic scent.

T/M. It tastes like a lambic iced tea. It is quite carbonated and zesty, leaves a tingle on the tongue. Orange and grape with a hint of lemon. A good deal tart.

O. It's basically a beer version of grapefruit juice. I'ts descent, but you really have to be in the mood for it.
