Gorgeous bright pink, with a 1 finger light pink head. Nice fruity nose, which becomes a little more apparent as the beer warms a little. I usually think of Berliner Weiss as a style that should be consumed on the colder side, but this one really improved as it warmed. Straight out of the fridge there was a nice fruity tartness right at the front, but there was basically no aftertaste, and a very light watery mouthfeel. As it warmed though, the body filled out a little and more of the fruit flavors became apparent.

Overall, an enjoyable berliner, but the flavors are a little too subtle for my taste. If they could double the sourness and the fruit, it would be fantastic.

2.66/5  rDev -29.3%

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pretty deep pink body. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Wheaty grain. A faint berry aroma. Slight acidity. A bit musty.

Taste - Berry is more sustained throughout, but it's got an artificial sweetness too. Grain in the middle. Barely sour at all. Unpleasant soapy, almost bleachy flavor in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very light and crisp. Aside from that flavor, it's easy drinking. Very low body.

Overall - Too light, dare I say. Low in flavor and it allows that funny aftertaste to come through.

375ml split two ways into 6oz glasses.

Color is ruby grapefruit, light lacing, brite almost translucent. The aroma is outstanding with the plum dominating the front but the sour and blueberry coming through as well. Balanced, beautiful - but the taste and mouthfeel fall a bit short.

This only clocks in at 2.9% so you could forgive some omission in flavor, but ultimately there is a feeling that there should be more Berliner in there, somewhere. The body is a touch thin.

That said, this is very enjoyable, had a delicate flavor and is one of the prettiest and most uniquely aromatic brews I've had.

12.68 oz bottle courtesy of CooperEllis pours a reddish color with a pink head...lots of floaties. Not much for retention or lace.

Nose is more subdued than I would have thought...tart, fresh gooseberries, prickly pear cactus and..well...not much else really.

Hmmm, not much here really....tart berries is about all. No malt, no wheat, no sour. Just too simple and the low ABV is a bummer and gives the malt portion a flabbiness like no other. Fun to try but not very enjoyable compared to the majority of berliners.

Man, was really excited to get this beer! Pretty expensive ($8) for a 375 ml but I've fallen seriously in love with Berliners, FloridaWeisses and Goses.

Pouring out into my snifter it looked very promising. Dark purple plum hues with slight blue from the blueberries, oh boy, this is going to be good!

The smell is quite light, slight tartness, not too much fruit.

The taste is where I was really let down. It looks like it would slap yo mama with plum and blueberry fruit flavors. Nope. There's a wisp of plum, virtually no blueberry and a very slight tartness to it, dammit! I drink the entire glass trying and trying to find something more redeeming. Nope again. More tart press and fruit would have been appreciated in this beer. Glad to have tried but for the expense of getting it and shipping it to me, I won't be having this one again. Oh well...

Another thanks to Ricky for sharing a really interesting beer.

Nice foamy 1/2 finger purple head, rosy blue hazy.

Nose nice tart lactic funk, lactic acid, tart berry, yeasty bready funk, sour blueberry, sour wheat, soured malt mash.

Taste tart, wheat sour, soured mash, little flemmy and acidic bite, little metallic acid, tart blueberries and general berry, stem tannic, green blueberry, foamy and nice overall tartness. Creamy wheat and tart lactic acid. Finish is flemmy and tart, little dry bready.

Mouth is light bod, foamy carb, little flemmy nice acidic bite.

Overall nice, a little too tannic and yeasty but still a nice berry weisse.

12.68oz bottle poured into a Jester King Funk n Sour '13 tulip.

A - Pours a sparkling, crystal clear, pinkish read that almost matches the color on the bottle label exactly. A thick finger of fizzy pink foam caps the beer for a minute or so slowly diminishing to leave a skim coat of foam that persists.

S - Plums definitely come thru up front with the blueberries to a lesser degree. I think I am getting some light grapefruit also. Interesting fruity tartness with a little bit of a damp basement sorta funk there too. Lightly grainy and cereal-ly malt base.

T - Plums up front in the flavor too..quite juicy and fruity overall. A lemony tartness brings out the blueberry a bit more than I find in the aroma, but still plays second fiddle to the plums. Tartness grows as the glass progresses pushing the fruit towards the background a bit.

M - Rather thin and almost watery in feel. Potent, high level of carbonation brings on a fizzy and foamy explosion on the tongue with every sip. Nicely sour and tart, maybe even more than is typical of the style. Plummy fruit complements nicely here.

O - Interesting Berliner Weiss...a bit high on the tartness and light on the graininess for the style, but neither are distracting or seem at all negative. Plums make a very nice addition also. At only 2.9% ABV this could easily be had throughout a day...tastes good enough to make me wanna try doing this.
