Cheers to Goblinmunkey7 for sharing this

Consumed 2/17/14

Appearance: Hazy, cloudy pink - the color vaguely reminds me of penicillin - pours with a big, frothy head - retains some wisps of a cap - decent head, but doesn't leave much lacing

Smell: Lots of weird, but good stuff going on - tart cranberries, cranberry flesh, and wood - some funk, a touch of vinegar, and a very light touch of acetone - some citrus, like oranges or grapefruits (but definitely not in a hoppy way)

Taste: More or less follows the aroma, with some charmingly weird flavors - cranberry flesh and some tart notes - some funk, with some light notes of vinegar - some wood, some citrus, and some general sourness - some Berliner/wheat strangeness, nicely refreshing

Mouthfeel: Light body, nicely carbonated, finishes tart and lightly sour

Overall: Made with real cod

This is a great Berliner weiss to start, and the cranberries adds some nice flavor. This is nicely tart and nicely refreshing. Definitely worth a try if you can find a bottle.

Looks like cheap flavored vodka, but tastes great. Tart, clean, wonderful.

750 received in trade... Pours a hazy pink... Sorta looks like watered down Strawberry Quik... Not necessarily a bad think. Pretty traditional Berliner qualities, tart lemon, lightly bready.. the cranberry IMO almost softens the Berliner notes and adds to the drinkability... there is a hint of orange zest that adds to the overall complexity and makes me appreciate it that much more.
