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.

Thanks to callmemickey for sharing.
Pours a hazy pink grapefruit color with a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind.
Strong cinnamon component in the nose but I'm not picking up much blueberry. Slightly solvent/acetic but not too harsh with some citrus acidity, sourdough bread and wheat character. Truer to style than the other two I've tried(Somer and Ever). Some darker fruit comes out as it warms but the aroma is still dominated by spice and citrus.
Tart and puckering with strong sour acidity and slight acetone character. Not too harsh or solvent like though. Spicy cinnamon adds a nice touch to the bread/yeast, wheat and acidic flavors . Slight mineral quality in the finish but again, I'm not picking up much blueberry. A bit one dimensional but the cinnamon is a nice touch and a unique take on the style. Slightly harsh but decently drinkable.
