4.35/5 rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
The bottle art is very clever and seductive (an attractive red headed female holding a stack of books)... and I am generally a fan of a good Berliner Weiss, so I decided to pick up a bottle of this.
A - Poured from a 750ml bottle into a wine glass. Wow, this is a really visually appealing beer! It pours a bright redish pink color with a 1 finger white head that fades after about a minute. I couldn't get over how nice the color looks sitting in the glass though. Almost like a Rose champagne.
S - Like tart, fresh picked raspberries.
T - Plenty of sour tartness up front that makes your mouth water, but the fresh raspberries really shine through. The raspberry taste is much different and fresher tasting than any other framboise that I've had too. Very interesting and refreshing.
M - The mouth feel was light and refreshing. But I feel like it lacked the finer carbonation that is found in some of the other sour beers and Berliner Weissbier's out there. Nonetheless, this was an awesome beer.
O - Recommended. Especially if you are a raspberry fan... you won't be disappointed.

4.05/5 rDev +2.5%

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.
