Thanks to John11486 for sharing this one at my tasting.

Bottled 9/5/12.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some berry and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with fruity and acidic finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and super easy to drink.

Bottled on: 4/28/14

Appearance: Pours a cloudy lemon/honey color with a modest head that fritters away quickly

Smell: Lactic strawberry and floral hibiscus tones; the tartness tingles

Taste: The wheat bread underpins the lactic sourness that builds through the middle, bringing strawberry and hibiscus; if you think hard about it, you can find the kiwi but it certainly doesn't jump out like the other flavors do; tart and puckery through the finish

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with prickly carbonation

Overall: A very nice Berliner that integrates the fruit like a champ

Thanks, Deltoro, for the opportunity

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.

Bottle shared by someone at the Prairie night at West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a wine glass.

A - Transparent strawberry-colored body topped by a partial cap of white foam, a thick collar, and specks of lacing.

S - Great mix of strawberry and kiwi, with lactic sourness, tart lemon, and perhaps a touch of hibiscus; guessing the latter was more for color than flavor. Not a ton of the malt character, and quite sour and tart.

T - The taste is even more sour and puckering than the aroma; this is more of a sour ale than a Berliner. Perhaps a Florida Weisse if you will. Kiwi tartness and lactic acidity dominate, with some sweet strawberry creeping onto the palate late. Not a ton of hibiscus character here either.

M - Medium-light body, with a bit of lingering fruit stickiness that persists through an otherwise dry and crisp finish. Pleasant active carbonation that is style appropriate.

D - This was quite enjoyable and I could imagine having many a glass on a hot summer day. Perhaps a bit too sour for stylistic authenticity, but a very nice fruited American sour ale otherwise. Will have to keep Night Shift on my radar, as this was a pleasant surprise.
