Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Many thanks to the Cloin. Pours hazy pink-purple with a light pink foam head. Salty dried berries in the aroma, some underripe blueberries. Light sweet flavor with pleasant dry, airy berry character, some bitter berry skins, seeds. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Nicely drying to finish with more dried berries, pits. Very nice, very drinkable.

Bottle thanks to a trade. Nose is subtle fruit and lightly tart. Pour is bright red with a white head. Taste is only lightly tart. I was hoping for more sourness but still enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Glenwood Springs with my wife, courtesy of Lukaduke. Thanks!! Pour is hazy pink with a small white head and good lacing. Tangy, green apples, tart berries, some cheese, pears, and waxy aroma. Taste is stawberry skins, berries, lemony, some biscuit, pears, and vanilla with a lightly tart finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad but somewhat muted and may be past its prime.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 [ Bottle ][ ˝ of 37.5cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Snifter ][ 9.26.14 ]
Hazy ruby-tea, large bubbled white head clings to the glass. Stinging citric acid sourness in nose, plum rounds blueberry, light minerality with dusty cobbler notes. Fizzy body is very soda-like, front blurred by high co2, mid is blueberry skin sourness, stinging carbonation, lightly husky dough through the biting end. Bright but biting, sharp beer overall, sourness not an issue, thin body but well carbonated and jowls tingling from ultra high acid, citric, thin mineral qualities and a little green. Not enough grain to merit true berliner weisse, but nice fruit character and huge flavor for 2.9%.
