650ml bottle, poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a pale, pinkish straw color, hues of rose and taupe, very hazy and cloudy where a huge, billowy white head appears, 3 or 4 fingers high that recedes fairly quickly into nothingness, no lace to speak of. The aroma is pleasant, herbal hibiscus, wildflower, pomegranate, berry, lemon citrus, light must with soft cracked wheat. The flavors are nice, plenty of fruit, very tart and sour, pomegranate is light, berry fruits, strong acidic citrus, wildflower, lots of hibiscus, pale grain, mild funkiness. The mouthfeel is good, very vibrant and lively, very high carbonation, a bit of sharpness as this is quite sour, coats fairly well with a strong pucker at the finish.


Verdict: A nice berliner from Bend Brewing, perhaps a bit too sour for my tastes, but the hibiscus is showcased well, decently balanced, but I'd like to see a bit more pomegranate in this. All in all, this is quite a refreshing and enjoyable beer, definitely would be a go to if I was local for summer sessions.

On tap at Bend Brewing Company in Bend, Oregon. Served in a tulip glass.

Pours a beautiful ruby red body, slight orange-copper hue, but for the most part medium ruby red. Half finger white head that dies fairly quickly, becomes a mildly placid beer after the fact. Smells of pomegranate, lactic acid, wheat, a bit of lemon, red fruits, a bit of apple. Very good. Flavour is even better; a good amount of pomegranate flavour along with a bit of citrus, lemon, lactic acid, yogurt, wheat, oak. Not too funky. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp and perfect on a hot day like today. Good carbonation. Finish is pomegranate and lemon acidity. Overall, one of the best berliners I've had in a long time and that also includes De Garde.
