Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a clear pink hue with 1/4 inch bubbly white head that quickly dissipates. Interesting...kinda like a fizzy pink lemonade.
S: Tart blackberries, soda (sugary carbonation), hint of sour blueberry cream.
T: Tart blackberries and blueberries abound. Sour fruit notes less apparent than the tart ones. Fairly straightforward, but very well done.
M: Super light body. Some carbonated effervescence tickles the tongue. Tart, sour, with a dry finish.
D: An extremely drinkable/sessionable brew. Would love to have this at an early summer picnic. A focused beer in that it does not try to do too much and instead excels at what it does offer. Very enjoyable. Seek it out!

on-tap at the brewery
Served in a pint - pale body with rose hues, some fizzy carbonation. Definitely on the low-end of the tartness scale for the style, and especially given the 'tart attack' label. Some clear notes of raspberry and blackberry - would make a logical summer smasher, but as a berliner weiss, this kind of stinks.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Extremely pale and clear. Pinkish hue. No head.
Smell - Faintly acidic. Grainy and a slight fruit. Nothing that I'd call blackberry.
Taste - Grain more than anything. Minimal fruitiness. Slightly sour.
Mouthfeel - Very light. Minimal sourness and, really, flavor.
Overall - Not exciting, but not bad.

A: Pours a clear rosé/champagne in color with a moderate amount of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass rather quickly and some faint peach highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to a mottled very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus/lemon zest, light fruit/green apple, and lacto sourness over the top of very light aromas of wheat.
T: Upfront there is a very light flavor of slightly sour wheat with a light flavor of black raspberries/blackberries. That is followed by a light to moderate flavor of citrus/lemon zest and light fruit/green apple. Finally there is a light amount of lacto sourness that is very subtle but present.
M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness.
O: Very refreshing and super easy to drink - extremely enjoyable on this hot muggy summer evening. I wish there was a slightly stronger presence of blackberries/black raspberries but this was a great beer and I would gladly grab another if I could find it. Sessionable.

3.2/5 rDev -15.6%
Appearance: an orangish and strawy yellow color. quite hazy and with next to no head with nothing that sticks around
Smell: really wheaty, kind of musky wheat. some tartness. comes off in a bit of a weird musky fashion.
Taste: opens up with a wheat base that is blended with a tart green apples. some slight muskiness but nothing quite like the smell
Mouthfeel: tart and light. not quite refreshing
Overall: the muskiness is a bit off putting. but overall the flavor isn't too bad
