From Preismj in a blind 12 bottle shipper (which showed up w/ 13 selections) filled with a number of excellent Pipeworks bottles! 750ml split two-ways, into wine glasses.
So much of this is amazing. The brite, vibrant color; fluorescent raspberry capped with egg-white head. The aroma is robust and faintly sour.
The flavor, in comparison, is flat. There is a strong raspberry flavor that muddles anything else. I'm a huge fan of berliner-style thanks to healthy doses of advocacy from StakeM and crew and having had a better than decent sampling of the styleI would say this is better than average but not top-tier.
Excellent mouthfeel but the one-dimensional flavor negates all of the other excellent qualities.

4.05/5 rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
750mL bottle poured into a stemmed glass. Batch #83
(A)- Pours a pale rose red color. Some deeper ruby red hints here and there due to its slight haziness. Produced a nice cap of white froth with surprising retention.
(S)- A hugely juicy raspberry bush nose. Giant clumps of deep but tart raspberries meets some subtlely earthy biscuit-like earth. Quite dry on the finish.
(T)- Very dry. Extremely dry actually with subtle raspberry fruit acidity. The slightest hint of a stony biscuity wheat flavors.
(M)- A superb crispness and refreshing quality to it. The light fruity acidity adds well the the overall feel and flavor of the beer. Extremely dry on the finish.
(O)- I think I like this better than their blueberry berliner. The fruit is a bit better integrated and a more balanced yet refreshing profile overall. My only complaint is it borderlines as a fruit lambic versus a purer berliner weiss.
