22oz bottle purchased from a friend who bought at Belmont Station. I have to admit it.. I am a huge sucker for good berliners... and boy does this deliver. Nice funky sour smell.. In the taste the fruit flavors of hibiscus and pomegranate blend beautifully with the funkiness and sour flavors. I absolutely adore this beer - especially for the price.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, tropical fruit and lactobacillus. Malty flavor giving way to tartness and tropical fruit before a sour citrus finish.

Pours a thin head on a hazy straw to red colored body.
The aroma is mildly sour strawberry and pomegranate.
The taste starts slow and builds to a nice tart pomegranate flavor, a little grain. Great balance.
The texture is crisp.
An outstanding beer. Perfect for hot days.

22 oz. bottle from Macboost shared with the group (from notes). Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have mildly tart fruits, pomegranate, apricot, floral notes, some lemon citrus, paper, doesn’t pop like most Berliners, I had the bottle for a few months, but didn’t think their would be age issues.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle shared by alexsdad06 - thanks again, Brad! Late 2014 bottling. Pours a hazy orange with just a bit of reddish hue and a small off-white ring for a head. Notes of overripe stone fruits (apricot, peach) and apples, sugars, straw, sweet malts, cardboard, pomegranate juice, and hibiscus flowers. The flavor is more tart and fruity; the nose is drier and dustier. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation. Nothing resembling a Berliner here. Seems at least a few years old but it isn’t. Really weird beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks solid; a cloudy caramelish orange with thin eggshell head that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells tart and floral with a notable pomegranate presence. Tastes like it smells, but more lactic, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but sharply lactic, especially on the tongue.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, shared by alexsdad06. Looks like he received this on 11/14 from MacBoost. Hazy orange color. Thin ring of white head. Leaves some loose bits of lace. Medium-plus body. Kind of mild slick, then dry in the finish. Lighter carbonation. A little bit of vinegar, touch of mild nail polish in the flavor. Some lemon citrus. Get the pomegranate. Moderate-plus sweet taste, very mild sour. An alright berliner. Not like your typical berliner. More like a mildly sour pomegranate wheat ale. Not bad though. I seem to be enjoying it more and more as I go. Upped it to a 3.2 from 3.0 towards the end.

oh man, more of that hibiscus flavors This was very tasty, the berliner was very well done and highly drinkable. Hibicus tartness in the finish.

Light pink with a small pale head. Looks like a rosé. Aroma is pomegranate, raspberry, hibiscus. Medium-light bodied, lightly syrupy mouthfeel, sweet and tart on the palate with a tangy finish. Taste is pomegranate, hibiscus, raspberry. Yummy.
