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.

New Year's Eve on-site flight of 4 of Night Shift weisses, 2.5oz each.

Nice blue/purple hue coming from the added blueberries. I thought this had a nice level of tart/sourness to it. Didn't really get a ton of blueberry or cinnamon smell though. However I get what they were going for on this one and or mostly delivers on all fronts.


I try to review every beer I drink. I like to think it forces me to objectively improve my sense of taste over time, helps me understand styles and flavors I like, and most importantly the BeerAdvocate weighted ranking system depends on reviews.
