Perverted to the core, the marketeering of this beer is simply not right. Its all of what's wrong with the world as I feel ashamed simply looking at its label. Excuse me while I go shower...

Hazy mauve in color, the ale releases a delicate lacy creme that slowly recedes but regenerates easily with a swirl of the glass. Light on lace, the ales acidity gets the better of its foam character, but that's to be expected.

Lemony to the scent, a musty tartness wafts about with complementary notes of dry cider and white wine vinegar. But then an even more sturdy fruit note emerges- its the unmistakable blueberry notes, and not the artificial candy blueberry flavor but true vine-picked blueberries in all its musty tartness and and robust earthiness.

Its taste is highly lemony, but lightly salty, cork-like and sour with the taste of white grapes, light vinegar, wine and crab apples. Its lemon and lime-type sourness folds in a bright blueberry taste with all its tart citric acidity and little of the fruictose- keeping the beer clean, crisp and dedicated to the taste of Berlinerweiss first.

Light bodied throughout, the beer's sheer sourness causes a lightness on the palate, aided with the bold spritzy texture of champagne. Thinning late, the would-be astringency of blueberry skins is buffered nicely by the light bready after texture of wheat.

After the bottle is forcefully discarded, what remains in the beer is outstanding. The beer doesn't get in the fruit's way and the fruit doesn't get in the ale's way and this creates a harmonious blend and is still well-infused.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a deep burgundy-brown color with a one inch white cap, good carbonation, decent lacing

S: Immediate wine barrel with fresh blueberries, dark fruits, musty and a little sour tinge.

T: Initial mixture of fresh and tart blueberries backed up some red wine, like deep red wine, Merlot , earthy notes, and some lacto like sourness. The finish is rather dry, lingering berries and a moderate sourness

M: Lighter bodied beer with ample carbonation for the style, perhaps a tad bit low. A little acidic, dry with a little sweetness and pretty easy to drink.

O: A pretty good Berliner. I honestly thought it tasted more like a straight-up fruit beer.
