This is really well done Berliner. Ranger Creek has a reputation for not making the best beer, but this one is good. Very crisp, tart and slightly fruity from the prickly pear. Really nice yogurt like finish. This comes in just behind RedBud as far as Berliners go.

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A - Light amber with a hint of pink/purple. The head is off white and dissipates quickly.

S - Sweet and tart. A lot of prickly pear in the aroma.

T - This is a tart bomb! Very puckering tartness and a good amount of sourness. The fruity prickly pear flavor comes through bright along with some sour citrus. Sweet with no hop presence or bitterness.

M - Thin body with moderate-to-high carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing.

O - A very unique beer. This is a good take on the berliner weisse style with a Texas twist.

Pours cloudy and smells of rich fruit. This was another great summer beer down here in smoking hot Texas. The sweet and tart flavors light up your tongue and offer a refreshing finish. Looking forward to more of these next summer.

Poured aggressively into tulip from bottle born on 08-25-15 (thanks for clearly printing that on the label) with about 2 fingers head. Dissipates quickly to minimal pool of foam, after about 4 min nothing left. Smell is tart with a little lacto funk going on. Someone that isn't stopped up could probably pick up some prickly pear but I am not. Taste is puckering acidic with a nice sweet/dry finish. You get the lemonish bite on the front end and the pp sweetens it up at the end. One of the things I like about Berliner Weissbier's is they remind me of a sour candy I had when I was a kid, lick your lips and you get that residual sour. I like this beer, it is not a slammer, it is a good beer to sit around and just work it down. Great job Ranger, I hope you keep this in your rotation.
