A: Pour is a cloudy orange with pink/reddish highlights: head length and retention are decent amid minimal lacing

S: Jolly ranger upfront with restraint acidity and delicacies of the cherries, raspberries, and lemons

T: A cherry tartness with yogurt, raspberry, and jolly rancher confines. Notes are somewhat earthy, wheat-y, and grainy, as the lactic funk, oak, and brett play around. Opens up really well, and has developed gracefully with time as hints of citrus, orange rind, vanilla, and slight cinnamon develop

M: Texture has a crisp, sweetness to it yet jammy and packed full of fruit with a light body, and high levels of carbonation

O: Aged fairly well, as more of the workings came through; nonetheless, refreshing and extremely drinkable

Appearance- The beer poured a deep magenta color with a white head that had hints of pink.

Smell - The nose was potent with tart cherry.

Taste - My initial impression is that of cherries that are quite tart. I do not get much of the promised raspberry. The sweetness gets swept away by the carbonation, leaving a tart oaky impression. The beer seems to get more tastier as it warms.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is fairly intense initially, but it does calm. Sweetness is more evident as the beer warms.

Overall - I am starting to warm up to Berliners as I have had some great ones.

Wow. Just wow. The color on this beer is beautiful and the taste matches its beauty. I wasn't sure what to expect with the combo of raspberries and cherries, but it was a great marriage and was very sour. Just perfect.
