I was never much of a sour beer fan until trying TrimTab's Euphoria Now / Passion Fruit & Guava. That quickly became my go-to Summer beer which then opened my mind up to the Paradise Now. Now you won't ever find my fridge or beach cooler without this Summer staple. Easy drinking and extremely refreshing. Even better on draft.

12 ounce can - Charlie's Beer & Wine in Marietta, Georgia.

Best By 08/28/18.

Appearance: Pours a clouded, murky, reddish-pink body with a slim layer of white-tinged-with-pink foam.

Smell: Tart-scented, sweetenedly fruity, berry-forward aroma of raspberries and tart cherries awash in salty brine.

Taste: Brightly tart, poppingly acidic with a heavy-handed dose of purees, blending both cherries with raspberries. Imparts some spread-it-on-toast sweetness. A seemingly citrus accent. Finishes about the same.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Moderate carbonation.

Overall: Yeah. Sure. Enough puree surging within to leave you wondering, as I do often these days, full of cocktail hour sours and pastry stouts, "where's the beer?"

Just the right amount of tartness...very smooth going down. Perfect for summertime. So refreshing; not hoppy or too dry either.

Appearance - Pours semi transparent looks like dark tea. Light pink colored head settles to a 1/2" cap. No lacing.

Aroma- light raspberry, tart lemon, picking up another fruit I cannot quite put my finger on.

Taste - Lots of fresh raspberry up front along with lemon zest. Very light tartness.

Feel - Light tart and refreshing at the same time super easy drinking.

Overall - A really well done Berliner the raspberry is light slight tartness but very easy drinking and refreshing.

this is a quality berliner here, my first from these guys. the can feels a little under filled, squishy in a way it probably shouldnt be, but the beer seems unaffected. the color is a little strange, the berries color it a bit pink, but they also have an almost brown shade to them, its not that neon looking red you get in a lot of these, a little murkier, but a good head rises up on it. the aroma is dialed right in, tangy fresh berries and lots of them meet with an appropriately restrained but a very clean sourness, they enhance each other beautifully in the taste too. not getting a ton of wheat here, despite there being some body, its not flavorful on the grain side, which is quite alright because the berries taste very natural, and the lacto has a lemony zestiness to it, and it seems plenty flavorful even without much of that element. good carbonation, quick finish for how much fruit this has to it, and a freshness i really like and didnt expect from the color. no frills here, straight ahead stuff, but quite professionally done. a cool beer from a brewery that wasnt on my radar at all!
