750 ml bottle (batch 6 from 6-6-13)into snifter courtesy of lucas1801

Pours a nice pinkish with very little haziness and a one inch head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is strawberry and kiwi, some lactic sourness and hint of the hibiscus. Taste is pretty tart and dry. I get some of the strawberry and kiwi, a little lemon. Mouthfeel is lighter with medium to high amount of carbonation. Overall a great beer, very clean and refreshing.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

750ml, Batch 5 6/1/13
Night Shift baby TEKU

A: Pours very pretty pinkish orange color. High carbonation. Slight pinkish bright white layer of head. Leaves some lacing bits.

S: Tons of fruit on nose. Definitely getting the strawberry. Tartness. Sour. Lactic notes.

T: Prickly tartness up front. It's almost more of a full on Lambic than Weisse IMO. Just not as funky. Lots of kiwi and strawberry coming through. Very floral in flavor. It is almost like drinking perfume in a good way. Finish is bone dry. Refreshing as hell.

M: Light bodied. High carbonation clears palate.

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!

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.

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.
