look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Into a tumbler glass it pours pink, with a pastel pink foam. Can't look much better for a beer aged on fresh raspberries. Sticky foam texture, spotty lace, long lasting head. Slightly murky though the color is just gorgeous.

Raspberry aroma, not sweet, slightly veering into sourdough territory from the lactic acid bacteria.

Ample tartness, seedy raspberry tannin, dry finish. Middle is wheaty and clean but the feel is a little watery. Could be more crisp, it's a little thin bodied at first, but not out of place for the style. Tart raspberry through and through. Fruity and drinkable, some light minerals and sourdough from the yeast. A Berliner with the classic Himbeere flavor built right in.

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.
