look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. A little hazy. Small white head.

Smell - Vinegary acidity. Very sharp. A little fruity, but not what I'd called blueberries. Faint cinnamon.

Taste - Very sharp sourness. Vinegar. Again a faint berry flavor that isn't overtly blueberry. Cinnamon is strong in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very sour. Unpleasant at points. I don't love the Night Shift berliner profiles.

Overall - Too intense in the wrong areas for me.

In-between my dog's paw pads fleshy pink color beer with a bone China white head. Foam dissipates as quickly as is typical for these types of beers.

Smells like all encompassing tartness. Some cinnamon and blueberry too. Not too much blueberry though.

Tart, tart Warhead sour with some emerging cinnamon in back. I guess I can find some blueberry if I search. Maybe Night Shift was going for more of a tart wild blueberry effect.

Berliners are Night Shift doing what they do best and this is no exception. Despite the lack of blueberries the play between tart and cinnamon was unique and pleasant.

Sampled from a 750ml in a Duvel glass. Batch #4, 10/10/13. Thanks surge1311.

A - Orange and hazy with a small head of large white bubbles that dissipates quickly.

S - Tart, lemony, wonderful! Some cinnamon comes through with a hint of blueberries.

T - A wonderful sour and tart bite! Again, the blueberries are faint but there are rich fruit flavors of lemon, blueberry and cherry under the sourness.

M - A moderate consistency and carbonation with a huge pucker factor.

O - This is the second Berliner Weiss of theirs that I've tried and I really, really like them. An outstanding New England beer!
