4.21/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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.

4.13/5 rDev -3.1%

A: sort of pinkish yellow in color. Cloudy. Forms a light white fizzy head that goes as quickly as it comes. No lacing.
S: well ther is a bit of a dual nature to the aroma. When I jam my nose in the bee, it is wonderful. Berries, strawberry, lychee, wonderful fruit flavors. But when I hold my nose about an inch from the glass, there is a quite distinct plastic aroma.
T: taste is quite pleasant. There is a nice balanced between fruity berry sweetness and fruity tartness. Berries, tart fruit, strawberry, kiwi. Quite nice.
M: lighter bodied. Tart. Lower than expected carbonation.
O: I quite liked this one. A nicely down fruited BW.
