750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bright clear red body with a nice white head. Thin collar. Smells remarkably bad. Butterscotch really doesn't blend well with the rest of the aroma. Light berry and acidity for as long as I can keep my nose in it. The butterscotch doesn't come through quite as horribly in the taste, but it's still there. Sour cranberry. Butterscotch. Light body. Well carbonated. Pretty darned gross.

Beautiful looking beer, a jewel-like red color w light carbonation. Looks like a bubbly rose wine. But as soon as I took a sip, I was appalled. Way too tart and vinegary. Cranberry is naturally quite tart, but I don't taste anything the brewers have done to mitigate that quality with other flavors/notes that would have made the beer drinkable. Reminded me of a salad dressing that's past its expiration date.

Pour is insanely cloudy and murky dark peach with pale peach edges and a white head. Nose has a bit of lactic acid, musky fruits, light rubber, faint berry. Taste is cleaner, just a hint of lacto cream, lots of peach skin mixed with hint of tart cranberry. Creamy body, moderate carbonation. Not really dry, body is a bit creamy.

My least favorite of the Weisses from Night Shift, though I'm pretty sure this had some kind of infection issue. The cork flew out as soon as the cage was untied, and the bottle gushed quite a bit.

I'd like to try a non-infected bottle, as the beer still had a semi-decent taste, leading me to believe it would be pretty good under normal conditions.

Butter alert! Butter in the nose and butter in the taste. It is not a butter bomb, at least for us, as it was still drinkable and you could pickup some cranberry in the taste. But buttery none-the-less.
