Notes: Our award-winning Paradise Now Raspberry Berliner Weisse is a tart, refreshing wheat ale that is brewed with raspberry and tart cherry purée. Bready wheat notes provide a soft background and delicate mouthfeel, while the fruit and acidic flavors contrast to create a very refreshing, but undeniably unique summer style.

Whether you are a seasoned fan of sour beers, or a novice craft beer drinker, TrimTab Paradise Now is complex, yet light and accessible enough to be a rewarding beer for all.

Pours a hazy pink with a white sudsy head, pretty good retention.

Smells of raspberry, lemon, and light grassy malts.

Flavor is of tart berries, lemony citrus, and a light sugary malt with a dry fruity bite.

Light body with stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Very good BW with a nice fruit element, light and poppy. Very refreshing. Pretty good entry to this increasingly popular style.

12oz can from Toby at share. Medium golden pour with a small, tight foamy head. Light berries in the aroma, hint of tart. Taste is raspberries, and it finishes very dry.

Wow really liked this! Great flavor with a great smell and a pretty great feel as well. I got this in a mix pack and I’m glad I selected it. Definitely get it again.

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?"

Had on tap. Pours hazy, orange-red in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is bright raspberry and raspberry jam with some sour mix and light wheat. Bartender described it as an amped up Abita Purple Haze and I have to agree. The raspberries pop here. Excellent summer sipper. I would have this often if I had access to it. Favorite beer from Alabama to date.

The sample I had was on-tap.

Medium rose color. The head was minimal with light lacing.
The carbonation level was just right, not too much or too little.
Just the right amount of sweetness, without being overpowering.
I could not detect any "banana" I usually get from a weisse.
Really good, subtle nose.
Very clean mouth-feel, crisp.
Absolutely delicious!
Can't wait to get more!
