On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Bright pale red. Light pink head that doesn't last.

Smell - Raspberry, but it isn't strong or distinctive. Grainy. Herbal aroma.

Taste - Sour raspberry flavor. Very grainy. Grain takes over the midrange flavor. StandardBuddha berliner flavors come back with that lemony TheraFlu taste.

Mouthfeel - Sour but not overly. Medium carbonation. Light.

Overall - Never loved these berliners, but this is pretty good.

On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a bright pink color with a thin white head that recedes quite quickly. The nose carries a light bit of cheese, especially as it warms. Behind that is a strong scent of fresh raspberries. Bright and acidic as opposed to musty and earthy. Flavor has an underlying tartness to be paired with the strong raspberry presence. Moderate acidity. Light body. Very good and thirst quenching. Quite nice other than the cheesiness in the nose.

Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a deep dark red color that looks kind of like a mixture of fruit punch and fake blood from a '70s blacksploitation film. Minimal pinkish-white head that immediately fades. No lacing.

The aroma of this beer is bursting with uber fresh, tart raspberry that overpowers almost everything else. Some lactic funk and acidity but the raspberry character is so promient that it doesn't smell(or taste) like a Berliner weiss. Really strong sweet raspberry presence that smells really nice but I wish that it was a bit truer to style.

Medium bodied with a nice balance of raspberry sweetness and tart, puckering sourness. Again, the raspberries dominate but it's a little more complex than the nose suggests. Very, very sweet with a rush of tart and sweet raspberry flavor that lingers over some lactic funk and citric acidity into a dry, tart finish. It's even a little bit seedy but after a while the raspberry flavor becomes a bit overwhelming. Like the other three Berliners from FB that I've tried, the traditional characteristics are almost completely overshadowed. Could use more funk, citrus, bread and wheat. Definitely the sweetest of the four I've tried so far but I did enjoy the fresh raspberry flavor.

Serving type: on-tap
