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.

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.

Pours a beautiful pink grapefruit color. Thin white head that hangs around. Nice lacing.

Smells of Strawberry and a slight hint of sour with a lemon and vinegar scent. I think I can smell the kiwi but probably wouldn't if I didn't read the bottle.

Taste is strawberry goodness with a touch of tartness. I get a little corn chip flavor in the finish. Very dry. The bottle says notes of sour dough bread but for me it has that frito corn chip flavor.

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.

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.

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.
