Pours the color of ruby grapefruit juice with a hazy clarity and a voluminous, pink-tinted head. Nose expresses yeast, bready notes and a suggestion of citrus. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of a tart cranberry. Mouthfeel is light and lively with quite a bit of astringency. Overall, a very good beer but I prefer my Berlinner-weissbiers a bit cleaner and lemony.

Thanks to pjl44 for this bottle!
750ml C&C bottle. batch 2. bottled on 1/20/2014.
poured into tulip glass,
Appearance: opaque beer that look like ruby red grafefruit juice or pink lemonade. One finger of white head.
Smell: most prominent aroma is the lacto cheesy/greek yogert funk. Moderately acetic notes and vinegar that leads me to think this is going to be fairly sour. Hints of cranberry add a tartness to the nose.
Taste: mild tartness with moderate cheesy and greek yogert funkiness. Hint of cranberries, green apples, and lemons. Simple, but this beer really tastes nice! I like that this beer still tastes like a Berlinner Weisse, but it has a hint of cranberries to accent the already great beer. I really would have liked to get some citrus out of this beers flavor profile, but it was mostly cranberries. Thats the only downfall of this beer, but I gotta say that its a minor thing to the big picture of this brew.
Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with almost moderate carbonation levels. Light, crisp, spritzy, and very refreshing beer. Very drinkable, but it should be at 4.8% ABV.
Overall: This is the final Nightshift berlinner weiss that I have yet to try out of these seasonal Nightshift brews. This is the 2nd best only behind Ever Weiss. Nightshift and made some unique berlinner weisse beer and it was an awesome ride getting to try all 4 of these seasonal beers by Nightshift. Nightshift is a great East coast brewery for sure. They make some of my favorite berlinner weisse beers brewed in the USA.
