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.

From a can. Pinkish color with a half inch of white head. Tart raspberry smell. Light body. Tastes of tart raspberries with a touch of lemon. Well done!

Appearance: Pours a berry juice color with a two finger head that slowly fades to a film; shards and spots are left behind

Smell: Slightly sweet and slightly tart raspberry and cherry with sour wheat tones

Taste: Light raspberry and cherry notes with hints of both the sweet and tart elements; the finish is slightly sour

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A light and refreshing Berliner; I could drink this all afternoon

Thanks, NolaHopHead, for the opportunity

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.

May 19th, 2016 - A bright and fruit forward Berliner Weisse, the Paradise Now has a lot to like, and works actively against my discriminatory attitude towards fruit beers. The smell is definitely on the sweeter side, but the flavor permits a healthier balance, with a watery touch and some passion fruit. There's also watermelon in abundance, but not overwhelming. Quite tasty!

Poured from 12-ounce can into a glass tumbler. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange, with reddish-orange highlights and a thick, billowy white head that left some spotty lacing as it settled. Aromas and flavors of raspberry and sour cherry dominate. This is light-to-medium in body, with an understated bitterness (7 IBU) and a mostly dry finish with some tart fruit lingering on the palate. The fruit contributes a pleasant dimension of flavor complexity to this beer. Overall, this is an outstanding beer and well worth seeking out.

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.

Brewery pour.

Pink-red blush with a creamy pink head.

Aroma is full of ripe raspberries. Actually more like raspberry sorbet. A hint of mint. Wonderful.

Flavor is decidedly sour instead of sweet, but really brings those raspberries. Holy cow. If you like raspberries, you will LOVE this beer. Incredible. Raspberry - earthy, dirty, seeds, sherbet, following with slight vinegar, slight salt, and slight yeast cake.

Feel sticks to the palate and tongue, has an acidic quality, perfect carbonation, no alcohol heat, and brings joy.

Overall, a really tasty raspberry sour, a bit quiet on the sweet end but sour dirty raspberries is the name of the game here. Very well done.

Edit : Better on tap than in the can, but the can is still great. Buy this beer.

All time favorite beer. It's sour and sweet while being light. Just good to drink.

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.
