4.05/5 rDev +2.5%
750ml bottle (batch 83) into a Maine Beer Company tumbler.
A: Pinkish-red grapefruit flesh colored body with a small white head.
S: Sweet raspberry flesh, light wheat, a bit of lactic acid in the nose.
T: Taste brings dry, tart raspberry, a quick wave of puckering lactic acidity, pleasant and slightly sweet cereal grain and wheat in the finish. The fruit is much drier and less sweet than it is in the nose.
M: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: I actually like Blue Lady a bit better than this, but this is still tasty and worth picking up when you can find it.

750ml, Batch 83
Hill Farmstead wine glass
A: Cloudy blush pink color. Basically no head. Just a collar of bright white that sticks around. Doesn't leave much lacing.
S: Smells I sweet tart raspberries. Some lactic yogurt notes. Smells light and fruity.
T: Nice light raspberry tartness on tip of tongue. Tickles the tongue. Lots of sweetness from those berries. Almost a creamy aspect. Finish is dry.
M: Light leading to medium due to malts sweetness.

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.

Very clear, vibrant pink with a big lightly pink-ish head. Lots of raspberry aroma and taste with light dry, earthy brett notes. Tart, but not excessively, despite the amount of raspberry flavor. Moderate carbonation, light and crisp. Easy to drink, a favorite of the day.
