Wow! 1st to review this one. Part of a swap with @Davidstan. Thank you!
Pouring a cold 12 oz can into my chalice. 21147 datestamp on can...not sure what that means.
The beer exudes a strawberry pink and amber color with fizzy eggshell white head of .5 cm. Clarity is fairly hazy.
This fades to a surface layer quickly, but remains there throughout sampling.
Aroma is mild overall but dominated by raspberries and hints of wheat bread. The berry is both sweet and tart, but tart is more assertive. No hop presence. Do they even use hops in this beer?
First sip reveals a light crisp beer with a bit of sticky mouthfeel. Maybe from fruit. Not a common combo of physical feels, but it works here.
Flavor is what I expect from style and nose. I get sweet berry up front then some wheat bread notes, maybe more crackery than bread. Rolls to some tart berry on the finish. This tartness lingers a bit after the swallow. Not really acidic or heavy sour, no hop presence and of course ABV hidden.
Quite a nice berliner. Not something I normally drink, but glad I have a second can in the fridge.
