Thanks to Chris F. for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Bottled on: 3/10/14.

Pours a murky honey orange-brown with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour grain, fruit, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is a nice blend of different beers that create solid sour fruit qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

This beer is juicy, tart, and funky. It is the best beer I've had from NS. It takes all the best qualities of their Berliner series, smooths them out a bit, and adds a pop with the Brett. I got nice well rounded fresh raspberry flavors with a tartness and light lemony quality from the Somer, but the blending with the Brett base really makes this beer almost sparkling in mouthfeel. The carb really helps the flavors pop. Just delicious.
