Bottle courtesy of Mike I believe...thanks so much buddy. 750 ml bottle, batch 4, bottled 5/6/13. Shared with the wife.

Pours a murky orange akin to nectar into my tiny little Night Shift Brewing glass....damn, thanks for that too Mike!

Strawberry is large on the nose along with biting sourness. I guess I could pull Kiwi, but it's likely just based on being told so. Smells of an aggressively sour strawberry.

The aggressive sourness explodes on the tongue. Again the seedy strawberry is most prevalent but it hangs on for dear life as the sour tsunami crashes and pummels into my tasting places. A sweet tart sugary finish lies shipwrecked and exhausted.

Snappy, light, and sour as hell.

A pretty good beer that could be better. The sourness becomes fatiguing and doesn't allow the fruits to showcase themselves nearly enough. I enjoyed this but I think it has the opportunity to be a pretty great beer...it's just not there now.

Bottled 7/2/13
In a snifter the beer was a beautiful clear ruby red color. There was a small pink head that dissipated quickly.

Mostly a strawberry aroma, as well as a floral/perfumey aroma. Sweet.

Strawberry and kiwi taste. Tart.

This was a great summer beer. Pleasantly tangy, sweet. I could drink a few of these.

Poured from the tap at the brewery on September 8th, 2012.

A very rich, hazy, blood-orange colour with minimal head. The smell was very refreshing and sweet with notes of kiwis, strawberries, and flowers. The taste is right in-line with the aromas. Very refreshing kiwi and strawberry, that isn't as sweet as the nose, with a nice floral aftertaste. Slightly tart, but very well balanced with the sweetness and overall very good.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A - Strawberry red with a good amount of carbonation trailing upwards. Rocky white head sits on top

S - Sweet strawberry and kiwi are up front. There is slight passion fruit as well. A light vinegar is in the nose that makes you expect a slight tartness in the taste. However, it's in the back of the nose and is just their slightly

T - Tart lemon and vinegar that gives it the tart sweetart bite you'd expect with a berliner. The strawberry and kiwi come up light near the back to give the beer a nice fruity presence. The fruit is also what lingers on in the finish

MF - Has a tart bite and a surprisingly low amount of carbonation. The finish is rather dry

O - This is a tart Berliner that has a nice sweet and fruit presence that balances, but does not diminish, the tartness you'd expect from a Berliner.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a Night Shift tulip.

A - Pours a deep and thick orange pink, almost like a less transparent pink lemonade. The thin white head dissipates quickly, but some lacing does stick around. All together a bright and pretty beer.

S - Tart and appetizing, almost reminiscent of a Rose or a sweeter Champagne. The aroma also hints at some sweet fruit.

T - Pleasantly sour at the beginning. It's strong but in no way cloying or overbearing. Emerging from the tartness is the Kiwi and Strawberry mentioned on the label. The two elements are balanced well.

M - Extraordinary. Not so thick as to be heavy but with enough of a body to coat the mouth and quench one's thirst. The flavor profile ends with an enticing juiciness that begs for another sip.

O - A great release from the upstart brewery. Apparently they only brewed one batch so I feel lucky to get my hands on a bottle (they were selling it at a local tasting event). Delicious and balanced. Complex enough to savor but refreshing enough to satisfy.

750ml capped bottle into Tired Hands stemware. Shared by schen9303.

Pours a foamy 1 finger light pink colored head with little retention. Beer is a clear orange tomato. No lacing. Average.

Nose is outstanding! Hints of kiwi, strawberry, foam, straw, yeast and a sprinkle of tartness. Very aromatic. I could smell it as I was pouring!

Opens tart strawberry, funk and yeast. Lemon zest mixed with floral notes and some kiwi appear in the middle. Intensely tart throughout. Finishes with an accented tartness. Clean, fruity aftertaste with a touch of sweetness. Really good.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes down foamy and aggressive. Crisp, puckering finish with a filmy, dry aftertaste that lingers. Real refreshing!

Really an outstanding beer that is top notch all the way through. Decent complexity and as drinkable as the style should be. Definitely worth seeking out!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 7, bottled 7/2/13.

Appearance - Bright pinkish red. Beautiful color. Pink head. Settles out quickly.

Smell - Very lactic. Kinda funky. A little fruity. Harsh acidic aroma. Strawberry comes out a little, but not super distinct.

Taste - Much fruitier. Strawberry comes into play more, but I think I'd peg it as a raspberry without the aroma. Again, it's got a harsh sourness. Musty.

Mouthfeel - Very tart. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I don't love the sourness in this. Kinda weird. Decent fruit though.

My first Night Shift offering! Batch 6 bottled on 6/19/13.

A: Hazy burnt orange with maybe a touch of pink. Either way much darker than your typical Berliner, can only assume it's from the strawberries/hibiscus. Small white head fades quickly.

S: Tart lemon flesh, lactic acid, and slightly sweet strawberry. Potentially a hint of kiwi but probably wouldn't have picked it out if I wasn't looking for it. Reminiscent of overly tart strawberry lemonade. Smells like this is going to be a winner.

T: Bright lactic acidity dominates with hints of muddled strawberry flesh. A floral note emerges as the palate adjusts to the acidity, hibiscus maybe? Flavor is rounded out with a touch of sweet wheat.

M: Thin bodied, crisp, and refreshing. High carbonation.

O: Interesting take on a Berliner. Fruit was much more apparent in the nose than the taste, but was a welcome addition. Thinking that cellaring this one for almost a year maybe wasn't the best idea, was probably a bit more balanced when the fruit was a little more potent. Having said that, very good take on the style. Nice work Night Shift.

Bottle thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Nice big fizzy pink head fades fairly quickly with light spotty lacing, bright strawberry red colored beer very hazy.

Nose is very strawberry, fresh strawberry and straight up strawberry jam, very slight floral flowery like aroma and very very light wheat like, light earthy strawberry seed.

Taste stats quite tart, some soured strawberry and tons of fresh strawberry, strawberry jam, little sweet, nice acidic bite. There is a faint wheat but very light, soured wheat, flemmy too. I do get a faint kiwi but more earthy kiwi seed, actually I'm getting some nice kiwi flavor, but maybe no hibiscus. Finish is dry and flemmy, little sticky, tart, lots of strawberry lingering.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, lighter carb, sticky and light acidity.

Overall really good beer for a fruit sour, but as a Berliner Weiss it's not quite there... I'm all for pushing the bounds of styles but this is way too far out there, very very barely even resembling a Berliner Weiss, but as a sour strawberry beer it's awesome.

Appearance: pours straw to a cloudy milky color. A centimeter of white head. Some retention. Small lacing on the side. Hazy and opaque.

Smell: raspberry jam. Herbs. Funky. Earthy and vinegar.

Taste. Opens with vinegar and lemon juice. Herbaceous. Raspberry jam. Sour and funky.

Mouthfeel: Slight pucker. Lighter. Acidic.

Overall: a very nice and flavorful take on the berliner. Tastes quite similar to ng strawberry rhubarb but with a bit more funk, in a good way.

750ml C&C bottle (Batch #7, 7/2/13) poured into an Idle Hands tulip glass.

A - Pours a glowing, brilliant pink color that looks like a Berliner Weiss with the raspberry syrup already added, a shade paler than the Rubaeus I just consumed, with good clarity, plenty of bubble streams rising up the glass and a low finger pink tinted foam that recedes slowly to leave behind a clingy collar of bubbles. Sparse lacing left behind as the beer level drops.

S - Nice and tart base, lactic in nature. Quite floral, rose petal-y, perfumey. Fruity strawberry and kiwi add some nice complexity to the aroma, hints of cherries. Mild sugary sweetness.

T - Rather tart up front and quite dry. Lactic sourness is assertive and welcome. Quite sour overall for a Berliner Weiss. Fruity with cherry, strawberry and kiwi all showing strongly in the flavor profile. Floral presence also, assuming the hibiscus flowers. Hints of an earthy funkiness in the finish.

M - Fairly thin in body with a strong fizzy carbonation. Quite tart and sour...very dry and puckering. Lingering dryness after the swallow. Fruity and floral. Refreshing on a warm day, but a bit too tart to be one to put down quickly.

O - Very good and enjoyable sour beer. I would call this a bit too sour to fit well into the Berliner Weiss category. Nice fruity flavors to complement the sour, touch of funk. Just a very good sour beer.

Beer pours a beautiful reddish pink, almost like ruby red grapefruit juice. It pours with a fizzy, eggshell white head of big soapy bubbles that fades away slowly. The head leaves a very light lacing of thin sticky bubbles that form clouds on the sides of the glass. The beer’s body seems clean of particles, but hazy with no site of the other side of the glass. On the nose the beer smells like ripe and jammy strawberry. It is thick on the nose, and beautifully fruity, and though it is one dimensional with pure strawberry and maybe just a kiss of citric kiwi, it is still a big and beautiful smell that is rich and complicated in its own right. On the tongue the beer tastes tartly acidic and then fruity sweet with a lingering pucker but no traces of bitterness. In flavor the beer begins as puckering citric sour but then blossoms into huge strawberry flavors with touches of fuzzy sweet kiwi fruit and a very faint hint of savory hibiscus. The finish and aftertaste bring more of the subtle hibiscus flavors into the mouth alongside ripe strawberry skin and acidic kiwi fruit. The malt in this, of course, is light, but does give a faint touch of grainy breadiness. The aftertaste softly rings with lingering hibiscus and even fainter touches of strawberry. In the mouth, the beer feels sharply citric, but on the light side of medium in body. The real weight in the beer’s body comes from the real fruit that was added to the beer, and which (oddly enough) can be felt as a slight graininess on the tongue. The carbonation is sharp and prickly on the tongue, working to keep in order the massive, ripe, and sweet fruit flavors of the beer, and it achieves this nicely. The mouth is left puckering from the sourness of the beer, and also begging for more beer. Overall this is a beautiful example of the burgeoning American Weisse style. It is fruity, sour, and very refreshing while still being puckeringly refreshing. This beer tastes great. It is what all fruit beers should be with its beautiful fresh fruit flavors and its thirst quenching beer touches. Try this beer for sure.

Drank from a 750 ml/1 pint, 9.4 fl. oz. corked and caged bottle purchased at Night Shift Brewing, Everett, MA
Batch #5
Bottled on: 6.1.13
Served in a goblet

Gorgeous, slightly hazed, magenta appearance. A small, crackly, bone white head capped the liquid, but it quickly dissipated to a lasting ring. Thin streaks of lacing stuck along the glass. The beer bore a striking resemblance to a sparkling Rosé wine.

The nose was remarkably interesting and complex. Super fruity and tart. Hibiscus tea notes and strawberry jam came through front and center. Lots of lemony tartness. Hints of kiwi. Yeasty, tangy and crisp. Slightly funky and musty with mild barrel notes.

The flavor profile was much more sour and acidic than the nose. Tons of lemony tartness. Crisp, dry and yeasty. Wheaty. Generic berry-like notes were apparent. Perhaps some under ripe strawberries. Subtle tea-like qualities. Hint of oak/barrel. Lemon and vinegar came through on the super acidic finish.

The beer was lighter bodied with a crisp, sprightly effervescence. Once the liquid settled on the palate, it felt surprisingly soft and creamy.

Ever Weisse is an amazingly interesting and complex Berliner weisse that makes terrific use of the added flavors. This brewery-only release is reason enough to make the trip to Night Shift.

On tap at Redbones
Comes to the table a light pink/amber color with an almost no existent head. The aroma is a little funky and a bit lactic with lots of strawberry dripping through my nose hairs. The flavor is lightly fruity with strawberries and hints of sour cherries poking through. Lightly sweet brown sugar and a whole lot of lactic flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a tart puckering mouthfeel. I typically don't enjoy a Berliner but gussied up with strawberry and kiwi and it works for me, I enjoyed this with some brisket and a vinegar sauce.

Served in a Berlinerweisse glass. Shout out to Merry for having it.

A - Deep ruby red looks like the ruby the monkey in the cave in Aladdin is holding. Not to much carbonation but this beer looks epic.

S - I smell some earthiness and kiwi but it isn't particularly strong.

T - Super sour at first dulls out as you drink it enough to actually continue. shockingly sour. Has a strong strawberry taste.

M - Has a nice bubbly feeling going down. a bit thin but not sticky for how sweet and sour the Everweisse is.

O - awesome. so sour and fresh and fruity. good for June, I like that it reflects the season for the ingredients.

Served from a 750ml C&C bottle into a Crooked Stave Tulip. Batch #6.

Appearance- Clear pinkish/redwith quick bubbly white head. No lacing remains, but such a nice color.

Smell- Olives, kiwi, lemon, vinegar, something floral. Don't really get much fruit on this one and the smell is nothing to write home about.

Taste- Wheat, light hibiscus, mild strawberry, tons of fresh lemon, and a light vinegaryness to it. It might take on more fruit flavor as it warms up.

Mouthfeel- Super light and effervescent. Well carbonated. Nicely sour.

Overall- A nice beer, and close to home to boot. Nicely wheaty like a Berliner Weiss should be, but I don't get much of the fruit. Solid overall.

bottle (5/4/13 on 6/3/13) to night shift sniffer

A: It is bright red it could very well be mistaken for a strawberry-kwiwi mixed drink. It has little to no carbonation or head but it does leave a white lacing outside of the top of the glass. It is completely opaque which really rounds out a unique appearance.

S: Well the first smell that you get is very clearly, strawberries and they are quite pungent and distinguishable. There is some more fruitiness in there but my nose isn't good enough to define kiwi or hibiscus. There is definitely a little bit of funk in there that seems like it would come out more over time.

T: Initially it again has the distinctive taste of liquid strawberries but this is not as strong as the smell and is more subtile and very sweet. There is also come kiwi juiciness in there that clear adds to the strong sour flavor that is very vinegary and acidic but in a good way not like soy sauce though I am defiantly curious to see how this beer develops over time. The hibiscus flowers are actually present in the after taste and do seem to cut the heavy sour acidity.

M: There is a decent amount of light carbonation that helps cut into the sour. it is very light, crisp, tart and sweet all at the same time which makes it pretty drinkable even for its very strong sour taste. It goes down smooth with a very slimy vicious feel down the throat.

O: This is my first beer from Night Shift and I am really impressed I will definitely be back at this brewery as for their beer itself it does live up to my expections but it does not blow me away. The strawberry and kiwi flavors are there but I wish it was not so harsh and vinegary. With that being said I would definitely recommend this beer.

Ordered from the sour reserve program and.picked up by caguiar65 (thanks chris!), enjoyed from a night shift wine glass. Brew pours a majestic ruby with a nice fizzy head that fizzed away almost immediately leaving spotty lacing at best. Great pinkish orange color. Smell is soft soury egg with fruit. You definitely get the strawberry and kiwi with hints of floral notes. Subtle sourness. Flavor matches the nose with great fruitiness and just the right amount of eggy funk and floral, almost brett like sweetness. Super easy drinker and a.pleasure in this beautiful summer day. Really glad to have another bottle and can't wait to try more from this brewery, hopefully get a chance to get a few more of these to enjoy all summer. Cheers night shift, well done!

750ml bottle into stemmed Night Shift glass. Thanks AutumnBeerLove! Bottled 7/2/13.

A: Pours a beautiful clear pink punch color with two fingers of bubbly, very light pink, head that faded into a very faint collar. Minimal spotty lace.
S: Tart acidic notes of clean lactic acid and sweet fruits. I get hints of strawberry, lemon and faint hibiscus. Tart and bright nose overall.
T: Follows the nose with a dominating Berliner base of tart acid beneath sweet flavors of strawberry syrup, fuzzy kiwi, and hibiscus. Lemon zest, cranberry and tart berries come through as well. The finish is full of acid, but the aftertaste brings some sweet strawberry jam and fruit juice.
M: Fuzzy and fizzy active carbonation, light body, tart and very dry mouthfeel. Acid is tart but not biting. Mild kiss of balancing sweetness helps it out.
O: Bright and easy to drink. Kiwi is subtle but strawberry adds a nice sweetness. Delicious, thanks again Kevin.

Big thanks to Bilco for sharing the bottle.

Appearance: Hazed rose pink. Seriously looks like a cocktail. Bright-white collar fades quickly. Lively, but not effervescent carbonation. It's pretty.

Smell: Loaded with tart and funky. Fruit is nice and soft and sweet. Strawberry with a bit more edge (must be the kiwi). Very floral. Bright citric tartness. Something woody and earthy underneath all the fruit. Nicely lactic. Warming just blends it all together, cutting out a bit of the sweetness. Some lemon juice with a soft yeast in the back. So much strawberry.

Taste: Sharp lactic bite right up front gives way to a slower citric twang. Sweet and fruity with a bit hit from the strawberry. Hibiscus adds a distinct backing floral component. Some light barrel influence with a mildly earthy yeast. Nice and tart. Some wet funk pushes through. More tart than the nose. A bit of vinegar as it warms. Strikes a nice balance between puckering and sweet.

Mouthfeel: Nice and light with a solid carbonation. Incredibly refreshing. A bit astringent over the course of a full glass, but that's not entirely unexpected. Clean.

Overall: I'll make the trip to Night Shift for future releases of this and other weisse happenings.

My favorite weisse from Night Shift to date. Tart and funky, but uses fruit to great effect. Planning on cleaning up with a case on the next release. Could drink an entire bottle, but it would probably crack your tongue.

750ml corked and caged bottle into a matching Night Shift stemmed glass. The brew appears a clear ruby red to pink grapefruit juice color with a matching slight pink stained head. A full wall of stringy to patchy lace coats the glass.

The aroma is fruity like kiwi and strawberry. It is seedy and earthen with a little vinegar note to break things up. The fruity component of this smells wonderful. The way the kiwi and strawberry is captured is fantastic however the funk is strange and slightly off-putting.

The taste is lemony tart to almost acedic and seedy with both the advertised strawberry and kiwi inclusion. A little earthen with a strong greek yogurt sharpness to it underneath the fruitiness.

This is light bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. It is unique and quite tart but almost too bitey to the point where it hinders the overall drinkability. I think these guys are on the verge of greatness with their berliners. The fruit combinations are fantastic. It's just a little too sharp and the wild character doesnt always work.

A - Slightly murky, honey with pink champagne , not much head to ring fast, not much cling. Pretty color, though.

S - A little funky and a lot of sour. Can't detect much malt, but smells great. Very fruity but the sour prevents cloy.

T - Sour bomb! Remind me of my homebrew kriek in that way, but has more depth. A little funk, a lot of sour, malt is there but takes a back seat.

M - Light to medium body, good carb, nice balance.

D - Wish I had more than the one bottle.

Huge thanks to beersndrums for this one!

Mildly hazy pink color reminiscent of grapefruit juice with a frothy light pink head that dissipates relatively rapidly without much lace to speak of. The aroma is mostly strawberries with a lot of noticeable lactic sourness and a good amount of Brett mustiness. The flavor, on the other hand – look out. This thing is mouth-puckeringly sour. Strawberry and kiwi are prevalent with tons of sour acidity. At the finish, an earthy, floral taste comes out that may be the hibiscus and an earthy, musty, and funky flavor that has to be some Brett. The mouthfeel is tough to appreciate just because this thing is so sour but it’s light-medium-bodied with good carbonation. While this is too sour to fit into the Berliner weisse category, it is a delicious beer that is definitely worth a try if you can get ahold of it. Especially after seeing “brewery only” on the label, thank you so, so much for giving me a chance to try this beer, Jared! Cheers!

Pour is hazed golden amber with a tight fizzy white head. Nose is plastic, lemon, faint grain, and a hint of strawberry. Taste doesn't have the plastic, a bit sweet, no grain. Strawberry, faint kiwi. Light body, decent carb, very dry finish.

Batch #5, 5.3% ABV, bottled 5.6.13 (less than a month ago).

A: Pours a cloudy koolaid-pink with a big light fluffy white head (with pink hues). Head fizzes away pretty quickly, leaving only the most moderate of lacing. I gave it an extra .25 for the hot pink coloring.

S: Tart strawberry and kiwi. No noticeable floral notes from the hibiscus.

T: Tart strawberry and kiwi and lots of it. Not super sour, there is a lot of sweetness that helps balance it (but not totally, it's still quite tart). Nice transition of tart to sweet, reminds me of New Glarus' fruit beers. Like drinking liquid sour patch kids. Surprisingly nice for a berliner.

M: Medium bodied and smooth.

O: Huh, not what I was expecting. A great berliner. It's tart and funky but not horrifying. Has enough sweetness to balance it out somewhat but not completely. Strawberry and kiwi are great fruits for such a concoction I think. Great job Night Shift.
