Very Good
Notes: Brimming with tart cherries, sweet cherries, and creamy vanilla, Cherry Cobbler Berliner is the perfect pairing for your holiday feast. This pastry-style kettle sour starts similar to our other Berliner Weisse beers, soured with lactobacillus bacteria in the kettle, then fermented clean. We added lactose to enhance the creaminess and boost the body, then we fermented the beer on an absurd amount of both tart pie cherries and sweet black cherries. Finally, we added vanilla beans to contribute even more creaminess and complexity and to bring out more of the “cobbler” character, making this an essential “side dish” for any holiday feast.

16 oz can from Toby. Burgundy pour, pink ring of head. Aroma is cherry pie filling. Taste brings the cobbler topping for a full on dessert flavor, with a small amount of tart.

05/18/20 batch "with double the amount of whole fruit puree from previous iterations of this beer." It's still called the same thing, so I didn't create a new listing for it.

Pours deep purple-red with minimal head. Like cherry juice.

The nose is black cherry yogurt. No cinnamon. No graham cracker. Just cherry juice and vanilla.

The taste is similar. Whoa. The double fruit is immediately apparent and almost too much for me. For the third time in this review: cherry juice! Opens with the slightest tickle of carbonation before straight-up black cherry mid-palate. Vanilla is evident mostly as part of the general sweetness. No cinnamon. No graham cracker. Tartness is 1/10 if that. Sweetness is 8/10.

The mouthfeel is again, basically juice, but there's slight carb, and it isn't ridiculously thick.

Overall, this is good. It's undeniably tasty, but it's sweet and veering a tad towards 450 North territory. I sure hope WeldWerks doesn't dump "double fruit" into all of their Berliners now, because the "single fruit" ones like Blueberry Pie are notably better and more balanced.

L: Pours a bright clear cherry red, with a very small fizzy white head that dissipates very quickly and leaves a little lacing on the glass.

S: Sweet and tart cherry up front, mixed with a nice dose of vanilla and then the malt reminds me of cobbler crumble. Aroma is very reminiscent of cherry cobbler.

T: Sweet and tart cherry mixed with a good amount of vanilla, balanced out by malt that reminds me of the cobbler crumble, maybe a touch too sweet but other than that very nice tasting beer.

F: Light body and higher carbonation.

O: They nailed the cherry cobbler in this beer as that it is exactly what it reminds me of, very highly recommended.
