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.

I think Night Shift has found its niche. They brew some beautiful Berliner weissbiers.
This one was poured into a snifter and had the color of a slightly rose wine. There was no head or lace, but the color was striking.
Sweet, fruity aroma. A little spice. Funky oak.
Blueberry taste. Cinnamon, but not a lot of spice to it. Tannins.
Sweet and tart. To me, one of their tartest. I thought the cinnamon worked well.

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.

Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for picking this up at the brewery and now sharing it
Appearance: An interesting pink color - some interesting peach tones with some light purple - hazy - pours with a small, white head, fades to absolutely nothing, doesn't leave lacing (due to the lack of head)
Smell: Tart and funky - some big tart notes, blueberry flesh, and some vinegar - funkiness vividly reminds me of Somer Weisse (maybe the house yeast, maybe the house barrels) - definitely interesting, with some interesting fruit - some serious blueberry skin, with blueberry flesh, minus the fruity sweetness - some nice wood
Taste: Sour, tart, funky, and fruity - damp, wet lactic sour, and some more tart, bright acidic sour - some funky mustiness - the blueberries are very interesting here - some tartness from the sourness, and some berry tartness - some berry flesh as well, very fresh - cinnamon was not particularly notable in the aroma, but it's definitely in the taste - the cinnamon works very well with the blueberries and the tartness - some pale malts in the background, some light bread
Mouthfeel: Light, smooth, low carbonation actually works pretty well, finishes very tart
Overall: 1) Make blueberry pie; 2) abandon and let ferment; 3) ???; 4) Profit
This is quite a charming Berliner Weiss. It's tart and funky, with some nice blueberry notes. At times this kind of walks the line between a sour and a Berliner Weiss. And that's not a bad thing.
