Thanks to Adam for sharing this bottle.

A - Translucent strawberry red with half an inch of white head

S - Fresh raspberry puree and some sweet bready aroma. Fairly one-dimensional nose but a very inviting nose.

T - Raspberry up front with a crisp tartness that completely falls off and finishes with a weak baking soda flavour. Very light overall. Not much character.

M - Light body. Slightly creamy. Light to moderate carbonation.

O - This was a bit of an odd beer. I descibed it as a good palate cleanser to the tasting group.

Thanks to DrAwkward82 for sharing this one at drewone's tasting.

Batch # 39.

Pours a murky light red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and raspberries. Taste is much the same with a mild vomit or bile note on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the flavor on the finish throws me off a bit.

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.
