Served in a tulip glass at Bad Apple.

A draft-only cherry B-Weiss landing at one of my Chi-Town haunts? Right on. This stuff pours a clear rose topped by a half-finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose is a a study in black cherry, mostly sweet but with a twinge of almost tannic-like tartness in the background. The taste follows pretty closely, though things are just beginning to appear artificial, medicinal. Luckily, it stops there, but it's enough to notice. The body is a very light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a somewhat sticky finish. Overall, an okay beer, but there's hardly any tartness or even any wheat character whatsoever, making me wonder how anyone could mistake this for a good Berliner. I'd have another, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Serving type: on-tap

pour is hazed light ruby red grapefruit with thin white ring. Nose is faint, light cherry and a hint dusty. Taste is much of the same, cherry and light sawdust note with hig carb and light but present sourness. A touch syrupy for a Berliner and lacks depth of flavor.

Flying Dog Sour Cherry
Had on tap at the blind tiger
A: No head, red rose color.
S: Artificial cherries

M: There’s a lot of syrup and cherry not all that much hops or natural flavor.
O: not great, very contrived … 2.5 or 3 ish

S- light cherry aroma in the nose

T- sweet cherries, along with some very mild tartness

M- body is paper thin, as expected

O- it's not bad, but not nearly tart enough, even for a Berliner weisse

A simple and straightforward refresher. Pours ruby red with a small pink head that soon dissipates to a thin band. Lacing is minimal. Aroma of sweet and sour cherries, lemon, light funk, hay and grass.

Tasty and just what the doctor ordered after a long day in the summer heat. Sessionable strength and weight; crisp feel,
Tangy cherries, lemony acidity, mild sweet and sour flavors. A touch of the musty funkiness and horseblanket character you look for in a Berliner.

Body is light with fizzy carbonation and a soda like feel overall, which isn't exactly to style but makes for a quenching drink. Nothing profound but definitely enjoyable.

Had on tap into a pint glass at Overwood, Old Town Alexandria, VA

A: cloudy ruby red color, thin 1-finger head that didnt last long, no lacing at all

S: as advertised, overwhelming sour cherries

T: again strong taste of sour cherries and not much else, but very well done. No aftertaste at all.

M: Extremely thin, basically reminded me of carbonated water

O: It's definitely an easy-to-drink summer beer (given it really doesn't taste like a beer), and very unique. Can't see having a bunch of these, but for 1 or 2 of something different on a summer night, worth having.
