Pours a cloudy raspberry red color with minimal fizzy head. Aroma is muted blueberry with faint cinnamon. Flavor is blueberry, raspberry, cinnamon is faint and works well in the background. Light bodied and crisp, has a touch of sour funk that blends in nicely. Overall a fun beer, not my favorite but pretty drinkable.

Pours a hazy cranberry juice color with a half finger fizzy head. Nose is mild funk with wet blueberry juice and maybe some raspberry. The cinnamon is lost on me in the aroma. Taste is similar. The fruit flavor is a bit muddled - hard to tell exactly what is in it - I suppose blueberry. However the cinnamon comes out better here and it is well balanced - actually really well done IMO. I was skeptical at first but am a believer now :) The fruit flavor is actually appealing, just a little muddled to the point I am unsure what it should be if I hadn't read the label. Feel is a little soft and lightly carbonated. Very little bitterness.

This is a good entry. The cinnamon is tempered well. The fruit takes a back seat for profile but it is pleasant. The funk is light, which I prefer.

A: The beer is hazy reddish purple in color. It poured with a collar of white bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of blueberries are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is a little sour with lots of flavors of blueberries along with faint bits of cinnamon spices.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't nearly as sour compared to other beers in the style but really exemplifies.

Serving type: can

16 oz can into pint glass. Dated 10/25/18.
look is blue-ish red cranberry. Nose is sour fruit and blueberry. Taste is same as nose with little cinnamon on top. Feel is light and fizzy. Overall, good for what it is is. Just not my cup of beer.

Canned on 9/20/18; drank on 10/28/18; I tried this several years ago when NS was bottling and corking their beers but remember it being cloying with cinnamon and not my thing; this recent canned version is nothing like my memory, fairly light and refreshing with a nice touch of cinnamon

Part of a flight of the four Weisse's on-tap at the brewery.

Thought it would be more red or bluish red, but it's a light pink! You get the blueberry and a hint of cinnamon but it's all subtle and tastes of extract. Not even that refreshing. Meh.
