look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Canned 2/25/19. Consumed from a 16oz tulip glass.
L: Cloudy, hazy, opaque and muddy purplish red in color. A straight-centered pour yielded about a finger and a half of a bubbly reddish-colored cap that decided to skip on the party. No residual lacing, but damn dat color.
S: Tart blackberry and acidic orange are both present and in equal abundance. Vanilla also present, but in reserved amounts. Not as sweet smelling as others in the series.
T: Orange is the dominant adjunct, shortly followed by blackberry. The orange is rather zesty while the blackberry is tart, providing a unique flavor profile. 'Nilla wants in on the party, and quickly forms a ménage à trois with orange and blackberry. The lactose is also there but not overpowering, being most noticeable on the finish. It is rather tart, which seems to elevate the orange presence in an obscure way.
F: Per usual, this is a good feeling beer. Medium bodied with a smooth and creamy texture. Grimm executes the feel well.
O: An enjoyable and unique offering. I think it is a worthy component of the Pop! series. It might not be my favorite, but I think it is one of the more unique experiences the Pop! series has to offer. I am very grateful to have tried. Cheers!

A: The beer is very hazy to cloudy purple in color. It poured with a quarter finger high pink colored head that left a large patch of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of oranges are present in the nose along with strong notes of blackberries.
T: The taste has flavors of blackberries with notes of vanilla with hints of oranges. The milk sugar contributes a light amount of sweetness and bits of lactose.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, a little tart, and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed the taste of this Berliner Weisse as it did a good job at allowing all of the flavors (blackberry, vanilla, and orange) to shine through.

Pours a cloudy reddish color, looks like it is glowing! Minimal head that quickly fizzes to nothing. Aroma is confusing. Hoppy, vanilla, orange. Has a big sour punch up front, berries and orange are there but dominated by the vanilla and lactose, which do not mix well with the hops and fruit, IMO. I was hoping for something more like New Park Blender.

Bottle to stange, the appearance was a semi-hazy amber to pink color with a finger’s worth of sustaining white foamy head. Adequate dissipation that left some stringy lace. The aroma had some sweet to tart blackberries, some orange sweet pulp, light grassiness and a little pop from some zesty lemon sweet to sourness. The flavor was moderately sweet with the zestiness from the lemon and orange flowing up tightly to penetrate the overall flavor of blackberries. Aftertaste was more lactic and the vanilla showed up here. Finish was stringy between the blackberries and orange. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sipping sort of quality about it. Carbonation felt low but fine with me. ABV felt as projected. Not that much sour harshness - seemed like the vanilla may have covered that up a little bit. Overall, if this is a Berliner Weisse than I am Mickey Mouse. However, I would say this is a pretty good American Sour ale that has some awesome nuances that could make this do-able again for me.
