750ml bottle, yet another fruited-up Yankee-made version of the style. What the hell is a 'yumberry'? Sounds like something off of South Park.

This beer pours a clear, bright pale copper amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, somewhat rocky, and bubbly dirty white head, which leaves absolutely zilch in the way of lace anywhere near the glass as it quickly sinks away.

It smells of some generic mixed tart black fruitiness, bready and doughy caramel malt, a touch of earthy yeastiness, subtle funky notes, those cheap vanilla cookies, and a hint of citrusy and green hop bitterness. The taste is uber-sour muddled dark fruit (yumberry? sure, why the fuck not?), gritty and grainy pale malt, a lesser crackery wheatiness, further indistinct tart citrus esters, a suggestion of spoiled milk, and more weak-ass leafy, floral and musty verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite aggressive in its forward-thinking frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and not all that smooth, for, well, all the reasons I have just recently elucidated here, for starters. It finishes quite dry, the overarching fruity tartness really striving to be the only game in this town.

Overall, this is a fairly agreeable tart and fruity 'old-school' brew, the emphasis definitely on the former. Once again, I have no freaking idea what a yumberry is (my Google isn't broken, but my will to use it certainly is, FWIW), so it just comes across as a dark fruity offset to all that extracted acetic acid floating around my molars, as such.

750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery's Society. Bottled 6/16/16. Served in a Bruery snifter.

Pours a clear, muted peach hue with two and a half fingers of fluffy white head. The froth dissipates quickly to nothing but a quick swirl revives a narrow, broken halo yet no lacing is left behind.

Smells of tart fruit, soured wheat and wet wood.

Tastes of strongly tart berries, an almost lactic sour twinge, wet oak and old wheat grain. Despite the slight puckering factor this goes down quite easily.

Light body with mildly tingling carbonation. Aftertaste of sour berries and wet oak.

I'm liking this Frucht series. The Bruery has done a fine job putting those foeders to work. Each release has that same strong sour but quenching base with hints of oak and featuring different delicious fruits.

split with the wife, perfect beer for a weeknight

into a bruery tulip

looks pretty good, was expecting pink but it's yellow. looks good tho nice fluffy head

aroma has the sour notes coming thru great. much more sour than hottenroth that's for sure. real nice fruit. haven't had a yumberry so it's hard to tell how it comes through but it's definitly nice

flavor is a fantastic balance of fruit sweetness and sour tartness. berliner base definitly comes through in the finish, it's a quality i don't really like in this style but it's easy to overlook with all that fruit and sourness.

body is good, definitly on the thicker side for the style, well carbed

overall i really didnt know what to expect, but this is great! definitly looking forward to the rest of the series and drinking this during the hot summer days

Bottle pour at The Bruery in Placentia, CA.

This one pours a light amber color, with a small fizzy head and a little bit of lacing.

This one smells quite fruity and quite sour. I don't know what a Yumberry is, or what aromas and flavors I should expect- I get guava, lemon and cranberry.

This is wonderfully tart and biting, with a lemony and generally berry like sourness. The base seems generally light and a little grainy.

This is pretty light bodied, with a crisp and snappy mouthfeel.

I didn't know what to expect with this, but it's still quite nice.

L - Pours a light golden amber body with a fizzy eggshell head.

S - A combination of berries and a grainy base. Somewhat muted.

T - Juicy & tart with that grainy frucht base.

F - Light bodied and medium to high carbonation. A dry and lingering tartness on the finish.

O - If you've had one Frucht beer with a variant, then you'll know what to expect with the rest. This series is solid.
