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.

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.

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.

Poured from tap into pint glass at Nano-brew festival PDX.

Upon reading the description of this beer I was really very excited to try it out... Poured with a pink-tawny hue, good carbonation but light head and little lace. Smells of sweet tree fruit and citrus, not really much else, but not unpleasant. Doesn't really smell like a beer... more like a malt beverage (wine cooler). The palate is overly sweet and sour... exactly like a sweet tart (hence the description). The pomegranate and hibiscus never really come into play. The body is light with lots of acidity, limp texture.

I expect fruit infused beers to still have an authentic 'beer like' character. While I found this interesting, it reminded me more of a wine cooler and less of a fruit beer, and I am a fan of Berliner Weisse and a variety of fruit ales. Sorry, I really wanted to like it.
