From a growler into a stemmed glass.

Pours a beautiful dull, reddish purple, with a light white head that dissipates rather quickly. Doesn't leave a ton of lacing, but I feel this is normal for a berliner.

The smell is outstanding. Tons of raspberries with a bit of cranberry.

The taste is not as in your face fruit as the smell. I get a cranberry/raspberry profile along with a great traditional berliner base.

The feel is perfectly tart. Not so tart that you loose the beer, but enough where you get it on the back of your tongue. You get some mild carbonation. Fairly dry.

Overall this is a solid beer and I like the change of pace versus many of the popular berliners to tone down the fruit a bit and showcase both the fruit and the beer itself. If you are a fan of the style I suggest you give this a try.

Growler from the brewery filled yesterday.
Brilliant amber with red pink hues and a decent sized bubbly white head with hints of pink in it. Big raspberry and passion fruit on the nose with plenty of lemony lactic bite and a touch of saline. The flavor is full of tart fruit with a hint of lemony lactic bite to it. Light earthy and salt round the flavor out quite nicely. Pretty damn good tart wine cooler. :) I enjoyed the hell out of this beer!

Thanks to Kyle.

Light fizzy head fades quickly, no lacing, bright reddish pinkish.

Nose lots of passion fruit, little berry, tart funk notes, touch doughy malt, little mineral.

Taste tart flemmy notes, thin but creamy, doughy notes, nice big passion fruit, nice raspberry tart berry, bright fruit, touch dank. Little flemmy touch minerality.

Mouth is thinner bod, decent but lighter carb.

Thanks to Kyle for sharing.

A - Poured into a hill farmstead tulip with a thin wispy head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of light creamy wheat, great sour and tartness, great raspberry, Very nice passionfruit as well.

T - Taste is similar to the nose The raspberry is nicely tart, good passionfruit notes. Nice creamy wheat, little thin.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, a bit thin.

O - Overall this beer was rather tasty, good raspberry and light passionfruit. Little thin though

Love this take on the American Berliner Weiss. Had on tap at pai men miyake. Beautiful looking pinkish/red color. Taste is crisp/tart with subtle hints of raspberry, cran and passion fruit. nice carbonation that produces decent head. Crusher!

On tap at Novare Res.

Almost no head, pretty purple red. served in a tulip.

Huge aromatics. Deep, heavy red fruit. Smells pleasantly of cough syrup.

Taste? Delightful contrast. Crisp, clean raspberry/cherry flavor. Not cloying at all. Refreshing, a little funk.

Really, really nice beer.
