On tap at House of Brews, Jensen Beach. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange with a hint of peach when held up to the light. Nice white head. Retains pretty well.

Smell - Lots of raspberries. A little bit of grain behind it, but mostly raspberry.

Taste - Raspberry, but it's more blended into the grain. No sweetness. A tiny bit of acidity. Lingering raspberry flavor.

Mouthfeel - Heavy for a berliner and not sour at all.

Overall - Decent fruit flavor. Not a great berliner base.

Pours an orange color that has as light pinkish hue to it. Head was mostly white, but again with a slight pink hue. Aroma was slighty wheaty, with subtle raspberry sweetness, some funk and just a kiss of tartness. Taste is less tart, almost not tart at all, with hints of raspberry sweetness and grainy wheat notes. Body is light, crisp, clean, refreshing. Ample carbonation.

Overall, its just a boring interpretation of the style. There's nothing particularly bad a out it, but there's nothing overly good about it.
