3.59/5 rDev -10.7%
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.

750ml bottle cork and cage bottle. Batch #2, 4.8% ABV Bottled 1/17/2014
Appearance: Pours a dark pink color with 2 fingers of a very lightly pink head. Body is extremely hazy and just short of being opaque. Appearance wise, this looks almost exactly like a glass of ruby red grapefruit juice.
Smell: Lacto, slightly cheesy, tart berry and hints of wheat.
Taste: Medium, clean sourness with accompanied by a moderate cranberry tartness. Prominent flavors are cranberry and wheat with a slight citrus and green apple character in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel and medium levels of gentle carbonation. Finishes tart and just slightly dry. No alcohol presence at all.
Overall: Really good stuff. The cranberries are integrated very well with the base beer and add some additional complexity without overwhelming the base beer. Drinkability is insanely high as well. I could (and likely will) kill the entire 750ml in fairly short order.

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.

Batch 2 from January 2014, last years sour futures program. Enjoyed from a night shift wine glass.
a - brew pours an almost grapefruit pink. Really murky. Thin fizzy head that hung out for a while as new fizz bubbled up to the surface to replace the former, now dissolved fizziness.
s - nose is cranberry and lacto. Soft and crisp and focused.
t - really nice tart cranberry. Totally hits the spot on this wonderful spring afternoon. Great Berliner with really nice flavoring.
m - soft carb not nearly as fizzy as it looks. Easy drinking on a sunny afternoon.
o - overall, another winner in the Weisse category for night shift. These beers are all great.

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.
