750mL bottle poured into a stemmed glass. Batch #83

(A)- Pours a pale rose red color. Some deeper ruby red hints here and there due to its slight haziness. Produced a nice cap of white froth with surprising retention.

(S)- A hugely juicy raspberry bush nose. Giant clumps of deep but tart raspberries meets some subtlely earthy biscuit-like earth. Quite dry on the finish.

(T)- Very dry. Extremely dry actually with subtle raspberry fruit acidity. The slightest hint of a stony biscuity wheat flavors.

(M)- A superb crispness and refreshing quality to it. The light fruity acidity adds well the the overall feel and flavor of the beer. Extremely dry on the finish.

(O)- I think I like this better than their blueberry berliner. The fruit is a bit better integrated and a more balanced yet refreshing profile overall. My only complaint is it borderlines as a fruit lambic versus a purer berliner weiss.

This poured out as a slightly pinkish golden color with white head on top. The smell of the beer has a nice raspberry aroma to it with a bit of lactic tartness in there too. The taste of the beer is has a nice tart blast of raspberry in it. The feel of the beer is light bodied, quite tart. Overall this beer is very nice.
