22 oz. bottle v.2 shared with neighborhood beer buddy watching epic World Series Game 6, 10.27.11.

One finger pinkish white head, fairly big bubbles, ultra-quick dissipation on top of lovely rouge colored hazy body (this beer just won't drop clear, I know this frustrated Tonya on v. 1), very little visible carbonation, just a few bubbles clinging to side of tulip glass, and once those were gone it was pretty flat. The floral notes from hops and hibiscus were prominent in the nose along with huge dose of pomegranate syrup. Taste is features the fruit up front, more tart than sour (to they make pomegranate sweet tarts?), and the hibiscus dried out the finish. Not a lot of effervescence present in the fairly light mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing, a fairly unique tasting experience. Not for pomegranate player-haters, a real sipper, refreshing. (849 characters)

Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, libbey!

Pretty pink/light orange color. Thin off-white head.

Lactic character with good amounts of fruit and a bit of grain. Lemon and grapefruit would be my guess if given this blind with a bit of berry juiciness. Nice.

Moderate sour character, grapefruit and lemon flavors, a bit of lactic. Incredibly drinkable. Nice combination of juicy fruits, lactic sour character, mild grain, and low bitterness.

Thin-medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation. I suppose it could have used a bit more carbonation.

Incredibly tasty fruited berliner. (589 characters)

Picked up a few of these bottles at Saraveza.

Pours a light apricot color with a very thin white head that leaves some light spotting.

Smells a for sure floral but I'm not really sure what else is going on there.

Tastes are only slightly tart. A little lemon shines through with a mild herbal quality shining through every once in a while. Has an almost cider like quality.

Mouthfeel is light to medium with lots of carbonation.

Overall is really good an excellent summer offering. Glad I have another one of these. (520 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange with a pinkish hue. Nice white head and a thick collar.

Smell - A little floral and a bit of cherry. Grainy. Light acidity.

Taste - Fruity. Not as distinctly cherry. Lemony tang. Very grainy.

Mouthfeel - Very light. Nice sourness.

Overall - This suffered from being late in a tasting but it's clean and tasty. (384 characters)
