The nose immediately gives away the style, as you can smell the tartness. This one is pretty intensely sour, dry, and easy drinking. I should have brought back a few of these from my trip to Bend.

rosenbergh (8081) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Draught at the Bend Brewing Co, Bend, OR.
Slightly cloudy brown red colour with a tiny white head. Sour and tart aroma with some grapefruit notes. Nice. Berliner Weisse... and a good one. Tartness, sourness, some fruits in the flavour. Amazingly tasty brew after couple of boring BBC brews.

Bottle. Pink-salmon color, cloudy, with a fine, high head. Nose of grapefruit, hibiscus. Soft fruit flavors, sweet at first, then lacto sour. Fine fizz. Nicely tart with good fruit and high drinkability.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2746) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 27, 2015
Bend brewing a pomegranate & hibiscus sour. A soft light gold with a pinkish tinge. Prickly pear/guava/guanabana fruity nose - fantastic nose. Tart, soft, wheaty, woodsy, fruity pomegranate. Great stuff.

callmemickey (3422) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Lightly hazy straw colored body, medium to thin white head, modest lacing. Bright lacto-wheat with juicy pomegranate, lemons, and vibrant floral qualities. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, assertive acidity, lightly sweet, and a refreshing finish.

I was pleasantly suprised by this one. Sweet and fruity yet still a Berliner style sour. A refreshing palate pleaser, oh I wish I lived in Bend.

cpetrone84 (1605) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pour is darker amber, lightly hazed, tons of bubbly white head that sits forever. Nose is very little grain, heavy lacto, a bit of dusty brett, lots of lemon, a bit sugary. Flavor is also too sweet, again virtually no grain, not as lacto/brett heavy, but becomes even sweeter lemon and candied sugar. Body isn’t super light, carb is pretty spot on, gets a little juicy.

Bacterial (1981) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from my sister who lives near Bend. I suspect this is a bottle from the first release because it gushed like a mofo. Despite lots and lots of foam, still a good amount of carbonation. Hazy very light pink / yellow pour. Floral nose. Big sour taste. Lemon and floral.

Lukaduke (2549) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge billowing white foam that rocks out and hangs like a true homie. Nose is fruity wheat, citrus, lots of tart lemon peel and some sweet citrus. Palate is punchy with nice acidity, round cereal grain backbone and some lingering layers of lemon yogurt, pomegranate and a hint of earthy floral hints on the finish. Delicious !

bytemesis (4136) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to JohnGalt1. Pours hazy pink, large puffy off-white head that dissipates fairly slowly leaving lots of residual and healthy clingy lacing. Aroma is floral lemony wheat, nice fruity notes, a bit of dust. Flavor has a bit of initial fruity sweetness, then moves into light plus tart, with a lovely fruity floral bouquet. Light body, high carbonation. Very nice and enjoyable beer.
