Great berliner, it's very tart with bold boysenberry flavour, and mild funkiness. Very good drinkability. Purple coloured body. Wegman's find. Worth seeking out.

750ml bottle - a boysenberry-flavoured, aged in oak foeders Berliner Weisse - relatively simple for this brewing concern.

This beer pours a clear, dark magenta colour, with four fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and fizzy pink head, which leaves very little in the way of remote islet dot lace around the glass as it quickly subsides.

It smells of tart black berry notes, further lemon/lime citrus sours, gritty and grainy wheat malt, a dry vanilla-flecked and red vinous woodsiness, some mildly funky yeast, and perhaps a touch of spoiled cream. The taste is tart blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and sure, boysenberries, a muddled citrus rind fruitiness, subtle grainy and crackery pale malt, a lesser edgy wheatiness, more woody red wine essences, lactic acid, and a mild earthy and gently funky yeastiness.

The carbonation is rather active in its palate-tingling frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and sort of smooth, that is once you ignore the swirling tart 'n sour esters. It finishes trending dry, the stripped-down fruitiness really running the lingering show.

Overall, this is a pleasant enough tart and fruity, oak-aged sour wheat ale, with the various flavour components well-meshed and distributed. And with the mit Schuss built right in, you are good to go for patio season with this one, as long as you bring yer wallet, and make sure that it's full.

100% on the looks factor. Looks like a thinner version of boysenberry syrup. Deep maroon to purple with a thin pink bubbly head that completely disappears. Smells of berry infused tartness. I haven't been up close and personal with crushed boysenberries, but if they smell like a blend of blackberry and raspberry then that's what I'm getting. Flavor bursts with tart berries and finishes with a light amount of sweet malt and earthiness. Feel is sour but not overpowering, mildly carbonated despite what the spritzy pop of the cap would indicate, and still maintains a softness before finishing totally dry. Overall, this is a fantastic fruited Berliner, very easy to drink, and my favorite of the Frucht line thus far. Cheers!

Pours a ruby red color with 1 finger of pink-tinged soda-like head that dissapited quickly. No lacing or alcohol legs present.

Aroma is not overly dominated by the berry but ample berry sweetness is present. A solid amount of funk on the nose mixed with some lactic acid.

Mouthfeel is thin with an almost soda-like forced carbonation. Start of the sip is some lactic acid and a touch of herbal hops. This quickly translates into the familiar berry flavors of raspberries, blackberries, and tart cherries. More lactic acid. A bit of wine character with oak on the finish. The sourness level is mild to moderate.

Overall, this is a pleasant beer that is perhaps a bit overpriced. I much prefer the barrel aged sours from firestone in comparison. This just lacks the depth and complexity, but good amount of the boasted berry character. I see it pairing well with richer foods, perhaps a duck liver or chicken liver mousse. It gets a 85/100.
