4.1/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Tasted with the group, side-by-side with the other three Pipeworks Berliners. 3/4. Looking forward to this one the most, as I'm a huge raspberry fan. Pours a dull, grapefruit-tinted mixture of pink and red - the head is with with an ever-so-slight pink-ish hue. The smell is pretty great - fresh raspberries, lively and seemingly pretty tart on the nose alone. A bit of strawberry and cherry, too, but maybe I'm just pulling those out of my ass. The aroma is a bit one-dimensional, but it delivers what it said it would deliver - raspberries. So I'm a happy man.

The taste hits hard with a nice dose of sour raspberries - a sharp tartness attacks the tongue immediately, even enough so to cause a slight pucker and some extra salivation in your glands. This was definitely the most sour/tart of the four Pipeworks Berliners. The fruit has a nice juiciness to go along with the tart flavors, and it eventually fades into a more fruit "skin" type of flavor with a touch of sweetness and an overall dry finish. Again, lots of raspberries and some lighter "berry" fruit flavors in the aftertaste. Just as the rest, this one had a thin body with medium-high carbonation.

Pretty good, definitely my favorite of the four Berliners, but as already mentioned - I'm slightly biased towards raspberries. Nice fruity flavor, nice up-front tartness, and very easy to throw back. Refreshing, crispy, tasty.

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.
