3.1/5 rDev -5.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
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.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

A - The bottle gushes upon opening and pours with a three finger head of white foam on top of a clear, dark golden body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lace on the glass.
S - A musty, funky aroma with notes of dry raspberry.
T - Tart raspberry up front with a wave of acidity in the middle. A light musty note in the finish with just a hint of lingering dry fruit.
M - A moderately thick body, high carbonation, and a dry finish.
D - Not bad, it smells a bit more funky and interesting than it tastes, but it is about at the right level for a Berliner weisse. The fruit comes through more in the aroma than the flavor, but it adds just enough to keep things interesting. This was a real surprise as I expected something sweet and totally out of character for the style, and while it isn't as sour as many examples of the style, it is actually very nice.
