Pink Kool-Aid with no head retention.

Nose of tart berries and plums. Slightly lactic.

A bit thin on the flavor, but it's less than 3% ABV. Some lactic sourness and lingering tartness. Big fruit presence.

Overall a tasty, thirst quenching ale to chase away winter. Bring on the spring!

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.

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.

Figured I'd drink and review my last bottle after hearing that David no longer is the brewer at Blue Lobster.

Served from a 375ml bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Appearance- Beautiful reddish/pink with quick bubble white head that left some real nice lacing.

Smell- Plums, wheat, some sulfur, and mild blueberry. Plum stands out, but I'm getting this sulfur, that I don't remember having the first time I tried it.

Taste- Plum and blueberry foremost, some light yeast flavors and mild wheat. Fruit forward, with a backbone of wheat. Very very lightly tart.

Mouthfeel- Very bubbly and incredibly light with a light tartness. Could drink it all day.

Overall- A nice fruited berliner. Nothing crazy here, but very light and refreshing. Hope he brews more good stuff soon.

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.

Awesome pink color with a purple tint. Nose is tart berries and plum juice. Nice balance of tart berry and sweet plums. Light lactic notes with a mild puckering after the sip. The fruit, sour and tartness is in real nice harmony in this brew. Carbonation gives me a soda pop liveliness with a dry texture. Overall another nice Berliner Weisse
