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.

On draft at the brewpub in Frederick, MD.
The beer appears a light shade of ruby red with a small, pink head. The nose brings a mild lactic presence along with, you guessed it folks, sour cherries. Lightly tart, with a nice showing from the cherries. A creamy mouthfeel and mildly acetic in the finish. A touch of funk in there as well. A bit unrefined, but this beer has potential. I found this to be rather bland, though not bad a first attempt in this genre. Cheers to Flying Dog for branching out.

On tap at World of Beer at North Hills
A - light reddish amber, a bit pink; no head
S - faint cherry, oddly sour, lactic
T - cherry, tart, sweet, odd corn flake-like finish
M - tart, crisp, medium bodied
This doesn't have the same sour, mouth puckering affect that many other Berliner's have but this isn't bad. It has decent flavor and solid drinkability. It's worth trying.

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.

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.

Served on draft into a tulip at the Drafting Room
A- pours a cloudy shade of red with a one finger white head that sticks around for a little bit. Eh
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
