From a 16oz can, undated. Purchased at the brewery 06/29/22. Served in a tulip.

Pours a thick and viscous raspberry sludge with a little fizzy pink foam which is gone before I can put the can down.

Nose is as advertised: sherbet. Aromas of pineapple and raspberry.

Taste is sugary-sweet and fruity with a strong floral character. Contrary to the nose, tasting predominantly orange zest upfront, strong raspberry throughout and then sort of feeling around for the pineapple. Sugar and lime… pixy stix! and a powerful flowery vapor in the sinuses.

Feel is thick and sludgy, gritty, full bodied with minimal carbonation. An acidic smolder in the gullet.

Overall, nothing remotely beer-like about it. Tasty and fun, and I feel a little ashamed of myself for enjoying it as much as I did.

Poured from a 32oz crowler into an angry chair glass.

Pours a cloudy maroon body with a big fizzy white head that reduces quickly leaving little retention.

Aromas of raspberry and blueberry purée, tart berries and lactic sourness maybe a bit of citrus.

Tastes like melted sherbet! The taste matches the label so I’ll give it points for that. Not getting a lot of pineapple but definitely the raspberry and some citrus in the background. Slightly grainy on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is fantastic - light and refreshing as a Berliner should be.

This is a great representation of the style without the typical kettle soured diacetyl taste, very easy to drink and perfect for a hot day.

Thanks to Todes for hooking me up with this bottle! Reviewed from (long-standing) notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into an El Catador Barrel-Aged glass.

A: Hazy to turbid orangish gold. Forms a two-finger white foamy head that fades fairly quickly. A good amount of visible carbonation - not a huge blush of carbonation at first, but there’s a long-lasting steady stream of bubbles up the sides and right through the center of the glass.

S: Lactic tart, lemon-lime citrus, and citric acid. Tropical fruits – pineapple, I guess, over a bit of underripe berry. A mild funk lurks under the light cracker malts. A nice aroma – it really does smell like you remember.

T: Lactic tart and citric acid again...I get mostly lime with a milder lemony bite. Some pineapple and accompanying acid. I'm not picking up much if any raspberry or strawberry here. Maybe a bit of tart raspberries as it sits and warms a bit. Light cracker malts underpinning. A dry lime citric acid and Lactobacillus tart in the hang. NOTE: I do think the raspberry flavors get more noticeable as the beer warms some.

M: A light body with good carbonation sensation for style. Minimal if any alcohol presence.

O: Tasty enough for sure, and with the power of suggestion it raises the reminiscence of rainbow sherbet. But it’s not a humongous difference from the (also excellent) Mojito Gose. But quite appealing and tasty and “Florida”.

On draft at Angry Chair. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a murky, pulpy watermelon-like colour, one finger white head, short retention. Not much lacing. Smell is berry, lactose, a bit of salt, lactic acid, a bit more fruit. Bits of orange and lemon as well. Interesting. Tons of fruit. Flavour follows, tons of fruit, a bit of lactic acid, pretty much following the rainbow. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, pulpy and creamy, nice body which doesn't quite make it to daiquiri level, thankfully.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2017, red session. Aroma is tart and floral, makes me think of jelly beans. Taste is sour, floral, fruity, dry, light bodied and easy drinking.

On tap at Angry Chair. Hazy pinkish body. Like pink grapefruit juice. Smells nice. Raspberry and pineapple. Grain and lemon acidity. Tastes of lemon lime sourness. A little raspberry. Grainy and tart, but never all that sour. Light body. Easy drinking and very tasty.

The color is a of rose - tawny look with the typical haze associated with weissebiers.

The aroma is bang on for what they were looking to achieve: It has that fruity smell with a lactic backing typical of a rainbow sherbet pop we remember as kids with no diacetyl, hop aroma or malt. For this reason, I give it 5 points.

The taste then takes you to that souring effect that's a classic component of a Berliner with the rainbow notes lingering.

The feel is light and a bit acidic which is again, a component of Berliners and it has a good bit of carbonation.

If you love Berliners, this beer is up your alley and should be on your list.

Muddled pastel red-orange with a thin white ring.

Smell is weird and kind of off-putting, like cleaning solution, with orange, and lemon-lime popsicle.

Taste is tart lemon-lime, orange, and Pixy Stix.

Light, crisp, and just weird overall. Not funky, just not developed. But yes, if you're looking for a sherbet-like beer, this is the one. I guess I never really liked sherbet, and, oh, by the way, it seems I also never realized there was no BERT in sherbet, so this was a valuable learning experience.
