500 ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Sampled previously at brewery. This bottle was very fresh - consumed within a week of bottling.

This is an attractive beer to me - a raisin brown color with some reddish tints to it. Head was pretty lively but short-lived. It looks "pretty" - it almost glows ruby-like under the light.

The aroma struck me as very wine-like and very juicy in the fruit juice sense. It is a very inviting and enticing - seems to promise a refreshing brew.

The smell in no way prepared me for the taste. The sourness is prevalent to say the least, but was a very enjoyable taste sensation. But it gets quickly overshadowed by the fruit components - Granny Smith type apple, grape/raisin/white wine, more of a cranberry tartness than citrusy. A nice intrusion of malt at the finish with some nuttiness.

Mouthfeel - this was light, tingly, refreshing. Clean tasting, not much if an aftertaste. Reminded me of a spritzer type soft drink.

I really enjoyed this beer and have several to experience as they age. I don't know if it is "authentic" in terms of the style, but it tastes great to me. The brewery says they are aging some on cherries - that should be outstanding as well. It would add another layer of flavor to a brew that already has plenty of flavor going down.

A- 500ml bottle poured to a pint glass with a crimson red, light brown body. A fizzy head rises to perhaps half a finger at the max but dies down to literally nothing after only a few moments. None of this is out of style. Lacing is out of the question.

S- Does not scream sour but lactic tart and fruit notes come to mind. The base brown beer lends hints of toast, graininess, brown sugar and raisin.

T- Follows the aroma with a balance struck between lactic sour mash and a brown lager base. Notes of lactic fruits, bitter lemon zest, cherry flesh and pits, yeast bread, toasted grains, brown sugar and spiced raisins.

MF- Light end body with a fizzy texture. Carbonation is lacking a bit for this style and it would probably be medium-low as far as Berliners go.

Lightly sour with a nice brown ale base that provides a good malt and yeast influence.
