Pour is completely transparent orangish ruby with a white head. Nose is slightly unripened plum, blueberries, creamy lacto and faint notes of grain. Taste is a bit less fruit, the plum is there, blueberries, light sourness, a bit thin in the flavor, lacto is lighter, high carbonation, light body, moderate acidity, soft body.

Pink Kool-Aid with no head retention.

Nose of tart berries and plums. Slightly lactic.

A bit thin on the flavor, but it's less than 3% ABV. Some lactic sourness and lingering tartness. Big fruit presence.

Overall a tasty, thirst quenching ale to chase away winter. Bring on the spring!

12.68 oz bottle courtesy of CooperEllis pours a reddish color with a pink head...lots of floaties. Not much for retention or lace.

Nose is more subdued than I would have thought...tart, fresh gooseberries, prickly pear cactus and..well...not much else really.

Hmmm, not much here really....tart berries is about all. No malt, no wheat, no sour. Just too simple and the low ABV is a bummer and gives the malt portion a flabbiness like no other. Fun to try but not very enjoyable compared to the majority of berliners.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pretty deep pink body. Small white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Wheaty grain. A faint berry aroma. Slight acidity. A bit musty.

Taste - Berry is more sustained throughout, but it's got an artificial sweetness too. Grain in the middle. Barely sour at all. Unpleasant soapy, almost bleachy flavor in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very light and crisp. Aside from that flavor, it's easy drinking. Very low body.

Overall - Too light, dare I say. Low in flavor and it allows that funny aftertaste to come through.

Figured I'd drink and review my last bottle after hearing that David no longer is the brewer at Blue Lobster.

Served from a 375ml bottle into a Crooked Stave tulip.

Appearance- Beautiful reddish/pink with quick bubble white head that left some real nice lacing.

Smell- Plums, wheat, some sulfur, and mild blueberry. Plum stands out, but I'm getting this sulfur, that I don't remember having the first time I tried it.

Taste- Plum and blueberry foremost, some light yeast flavors and mild wheat. Fruit forward, with a backbone of wheat. Very very lightly tart.

Mouthfeel- Very bubbly and incredibly light with a light tartness. Could drink it all day.

Overall- A nice fruited berliner. Nothing crazy here, but very light and refreshing. Hope he brews more good stuff soon.
