Strange dull reddish brown look ... Crisp sour raspberry tart pleasantly jumpstarts tastebuds .refreshingly sour.

Bright red, with a hint of orange. Slight white head.

Smells like raspberry wine, but less strong.

The initial, and strongest, flavor is bread dough, followed by bread crust, and light dried raspberry/cranberry flavor. Some lingering tartness and bitterness on the finish.

Light, slightly oily, with fine, moderately prickly carbonation.

Overall, it gives the impression of some sort of raspberry pastry, but without the sweetness, nor with as much tartness as a typical Berliner. Takes a little getting used to, but not bad.

Thought I was going to get a nice sour ale. However this is like someone mixed candy raspberry flavor in and it tastes gross. I like sour beers, but this one came off as odd tasting.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an unusual, murky bronze color with violet highlights and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of raspberries, some wheat. Taste is tart, raspberries, wheat, light malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, I'll admit that I'm not a fan of this style, but this one is pretty good.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with no date that I can see. Sampled on August 19, 2017.

The color of the pour is a sort of purple-amber with a modest of-white head that fades eventually to a ring. No lacing.

I am a fan of raspberries and so the aroma is enticing in that the raspberry characters are big and forward. The white breadiness pales in comparison. I get no real spice or hop presence.

The body is light.

The sour and tart zestiness of the raspberries jump forward in the taste much as they do in the aroma. There is a mild sweetness but the finish is a berry-like fruitiness for only a moment. It does make me pucker up a bit I'll give it that.

Drank on tap, 4/26/17.

Look - cloudy reddish yellow. Fair amount of carbonation, but no head.
Smell - a pleasant aroma of raspberries and honey. No hops detected whatsoever.
Taste - fruity and tart, with a hint of sweetness. The flavors of the raspberries come through first, with a nice strong wheat finish.
Feel - light body, extremely easy to drink. Very refreshing.
Overall - I thought this was a great refreshing Berliner Weissbier that is packed with flavor. Really enjoyed the raspberry flavor. Some might find it a bit too sour, but hey, probably should have expected it when picking this up.

Reddish hue that reminds me of pink grapefruit. Cloudy. Minor head with minimal lace leaving only scattered spots on the glass.

Sour aroma with a very light wheat touch. Notable sweetness as well.

Very much a sour beer in the Berliner Weiss tradition. Thin compared to most beers but it's fairly accurate for this style. Long, subtle aftertaste that's similar to a SweetTart. Lip smacking finish.

On tap at Bukowski's Tavern in Boston.

Pours a nice, murky reddish orange.

Lovely fruity smel, with raspberries and a bit of sweetness.

Very nice and refreshing taste. Creamy and kind of sweet and sour, with a really great raspberry flavor.

Nice body on this one, has the creaminess I love in Berliner Weisses. Well carbonated, very sparkly.

Overall, an easy to drink, refreshing beer, with a bit of hidden depth to it.
