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.

A: Sort of a peachy yellow in color. Mostly clear on the first pour. Mostly cloudy on the last pour. Forms a modest sized off white head that reduces to a thin, but stable, surface coating. Very light lacing.

S: Aroma is noticeably tart, though there is an underlying sweetness to the beer. Sour fruits, lemon, and berries. Slightly vinous in character. Light oak notes.

T: The first sip of this beer has an aggressive lactic sourness to it, but it seems to calm down on subsequent sips revealing a sweet-sour beer. Lemon and raspberry fruitiness with a light "grandma's basement" funk on the back end. Hints of wheat. Finish is sweet.

M: On the lighter side of medium. As noted above there is a distinct sourness to the beer, but there is also a sweetness that helps to tone down the sour quality. Medium-heavy carbonation. Slight bitterness on the back end.

O: A nice hybrid style offering up a range of complimenting flavors along with more than a just a bit of sweet and sour. Personally, I was hoping for more Brett character, but I'm not the brewer and this isn't my beer. Still, quite enjoyable.
