4.3/5  rDev +2.1%

A: A dark pinkish-red hue that is completely opaque, its a very pretty beer to say the least. A modest pour gives about a finger of head that went away instantly. No lacing or foam to be seen once the initial layer of foam dissipates.

S: Immediately I get a mixture of vanilla and blueberry that lead into a doughy smell probably from the graham crackers. I also get a slight butter/greek yogurt flavor, not super sure where that comes from, could be the milk sugar.

T: This is a very fun beer to drink. The nose is closely aligned with the taste but the blueberry comes through much more tart. The butter/greek yogurt flavor is much more muted as well, thankfully. I also get a bready flavor near the back of the palate that compliments the tart flavor well.

M: To me, the mouthfeel compliments the style very well. There is a medium body that reminds me of letting a fruit smoothie melt for an hour or so and giving it a drink.

O: We know coming into this beer its meant to be sweet and candy-like, and thats exactly whats delivered. At 4.5%, its an easy and fun beer to have at the end of the day. My only gripe may be the slight butter/yogurt flavor that sits in the profile, but it exists second to everything else going on in the beer. I’ll definitely look for more weldworks berliner weisses to try.

Canned 2 weeks ago.

Pours deep purple with a ring of off-white head.

The nose is blueberry yogurt and sugar cookie.

The taste is like a blueberry lollipop with balancing tart complexity. Blueberry, blackberry, grape, and Greek yogurt. Hints of vanilla and bread. Medium tartness lingers.

The mouthfeel is medium+ for the style. Lush and juicy up-front.

Overall, delicious.

Pinkish blue beer with a head that has a purplish, blueberry skin tint to it. Smells amazing with a ton of blueberry. There are some floral notes and a bit of sweet and tart aspects in the aroma. Lightly sweet and moderately tart with lots of blueberry and a graham cracker that adds the flavor of pie crust. Great beer.

a really awesome can of beer, weldwerks penchant for dessert beers is now spreading beyond stouts apparently, which in this case is pretty righteous. its a neat brew, hazy purple to pink in color, with a fizzy sort of soda looking head that doesnt last long after the initial pour. the color is pretty and the beer looks alive even without much head on it. the aroma is nice, tart skinny blueberries and a little fleshy sweetness, natural to me but robust right away, supported by some light lactic acidity, much less than is usually there in this style, and some faint honey and bread elements, definitely from the graham crackers! lemony acid in the front of the taste, not where it usually shows up in a berliner, but i welcome it early, its tidy and not much more than tart, it sets the stage nicely for the blueberries which are still natural but kind of baked to me now, a little sweeter, very true to the dessert, but not overdone. faint vanilla and honey too unites the fruit with the malt really well. finally, i get a bran or cakey element from the graham cracker which seriously does taste like pie crust when i let it. a quick wash of acid again at the end keeps it from being too sweet for too long, but its never too sour to drink on, i could have had a few cans of this happily, believe it or not. i have been critical of these guys for doing too much of this sort of thing, turning every beer into a milk sugar dessert of one persuasion or another, but this really is quite good, truly original, and about as good as it could possibly be done. killer job on it, ill have to source some more!

Pours a purplish copper capped with a slim layer of soapy bubbles. Soft blueberry, light lactic acid, and cream. Lovely bright juicy blueberry flavor...vanilla bean, lime-like acidity, just a hint of graham cracker. Very juicy, clean, and tart. Delightful.

What a pleasant little treat this beverage is. Pours a nice pink purple. Soft salty darkness on the nose with obvious blueberry. ..some graham cracker in there too. Taste is real nice. Blueberry pie for sure. What a tasty little ditty.
