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.

750 of batch # 39 poured into Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: light cherry red almost pink bodied beer with a towering 3 fingers of head. Drops quickly to a thin cap. Almost no lacing sticks to the side of the glass, it just slides right down the glass.

Smell: fresh and juicy raspberries. A touch of musty funk.

Taste: moderately tart and fruit forward beer. Really fresh and juicy raspberries with a hint of cranberries and lemon. A grainy cereal note in the middle of the beer. Also a hint of musty hay noted in the aftertaste. Clean finish with a little touch of tart raspberries with a quick acidic bite.

Mouthfeel: light body and moderate carbonation. Crisp, refreshing, and prickley carbonation. Light and clean beer. A "seltzer like" and moderately dry mouthfeel to this beer.

Overall: This beer really surprised me and I enjoyed it quite a bit. The focus is definately on the raspberries. I would seriously consider this beer as an alternative to a table beer that would normally hold up to alot of different and deverse food pairings from appetizers, cheese, salads, light pasta dishes, sushi/seafood, and even some desserts. I dont know alot about a berliner wiess style beer, but this beer has captured my interest. Pipeworks did a good job with this beer. I would not hesitate to pick up another bottle of this beer. Its a creative concept that Pipeworks had here to just brew the berliner wiess with raspberries instead of serving it with the traditional raspberry syrup.
