Been holding onto this bottle for awhile as it was gifted to me and frankly I didnt want to open it because one of the other berliners ive had from this brewery was pretty bad. 750ml bottle into a matching Pipeworks berliner bowl. The brew appears a clear light peachy pink color with a white cap. A second pour looks like someone threw up cream corn in the glass.

The aroma has some lactic tang and pleasant fruitiness about it that isnt quite identifable but I assume it to be the cranberry inclusion.

The taste is tart with a bit of wheat and quite a bit of carbonic bite. As it warms up, it doesnt get any better, this tastes like club soda more than a berliner.

Light in body with modest carbonation. In comparison to the pipeworks blue lady berliner, this was ok. Im glad the experience is over, I dont need/want to have this again.
