Beautiful hazy pink body that had loads of head as this bottle was a gusher like so many from the 2014 batch have been. The smell is pretty yogurty with a hint of citrus. The taste is fairly one note. Loads of lactic tartness and yogurty flavor. You get a slight hint of cranberry at the very back end when this warms a bit. The tartness is dialed back a bit this season from NS on this berliner, but there are just so many better berliners on the market. I wanted something beyond lactic tartness and a bit more fruit. There are a lot of great non-fruited berliners available, so the fruit really needs to shine in my opinion.

Pours a clear reddish wood color, like an herbal tea or something, has a thin head to start with and it fades to just the rim pretty quickly.

Smells of tart fruit, some kind of berry, hints of citrus too, something acidic like orange juice maybe. Mild vinegar note too.

Pretty damn tart up front, some lightly sweet vinegary flavor buried under there, good amount of dry berry fruit character that is now more recognizable as cranberry, oranges noticeable too, the fruit doesn't exactly jump our but it's definitely the dominant flavor. Puckering sour.

Carbonation is too low and sourness too high for this to be as refreshing as a berlinerweiss should be, but if you think of it more as a still cranberry lambic it's not so bad. :)

Appearance: Completely cloudy/light pink. Starts with a big pillowy bright-white head. Minimal retention leaves a small collar and wisps of a cap. Slight pop of the cap makes me believe there's a moderate carbonation.

Smell: Funky. Oak, lactic, almost stomach acid level of tartness. Tart cranberry flesh. Slightly juicy push of fruit. A blend of sour and tart buggy goodness. A touch of eartht and powdery yeast. Slightly sweet with some bready undertones. Woody. A touch floral as well.

Taste: Burst of tart and juicy cranberry. Nice hint of orange zest on the finish. Tart citric acid, like straight. A touch if citrus and some lightly powdery yeast. Mildly earthy and woody. Oak adds some dimension. Warming pushes the cranberry flesh and tartness up a notch. Very slight bready sweetness. Super clean.

Mouthfeel: Light and wet. Slightly dry. Relatively clean with a light to moderate carbonation.

Overall: About as exciting as Cape Cod.

Easy drinking and light. Closer to a real Berliner than the other Night Shift Weisses. Soft and solid.

Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Batch # 2. Bottled on 1/20/14.

Pours a murky light red with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, cranberry, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain and cranberry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid slightly sour cranberry aspect in the aroma and flavor.
