Poured from bomber into DL snifter... Opened at a Nashville tasting
A- Pours a deep, opaque, gorgeous pink color! Has nice head again pink, this time more neon; but it is an interesting sight in a glass.
S- Smells like fresh raspberry seeds and a bit of green pepper. Not super funky or acidic, but very fruity. Intriguing more than anything, because the pepper isnt a vegetal DMS, its a strong phenolic pepper kick! Not a very berliner-like aroma
T/M- Very good beer. Has a smooth fruity taste, dominated by raspberry and blackberries. Acidic and tart, but not fully sour. Just a ton of fresh berries reminiscent of when I was a boy working for my neighbors, picking raspberries... Light body, refreshing and well carbonated to almost have this be like a fruity spritzer.
O- A tad more sour and I'd be blown away. The raspberries were so fresh and natural tasting that I thought I had my daily dose of fruits for a week, all in this glass! Very enjoyable, I want more FB berliners!!

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.
