At Cajun sour fest. Not my favorite of the day from CCB. Get some pear in the nose, rather one-dimensional.

6/16/12. On tap at the Cajun Sourfest. Nice pinkish pour with a small head. Light aroma with definite prickly pear and just a touch of funk. Light grainy flavor with plenty of prickly pear. Not bad.

Another awesome Berliner from CCB. Beautiful color and appearance. Hazy ruby red color with a fantastic nose of light tartness and prickly Lear. Very noticeable fruit up front on the flavor with citrus notes and tartness. Light grassiness follows with barnyard notes. Body is light to medium and lingers lightly. A great Berliner, that I can happily say is from Tampa.

I am not a fan of Berliner Weisse offerings per se, however this particular one was amazing. It was refreshing, balanced, and tart. It was not over powered by sour notes, rather it offered a unique balance that allowed the prickly pear flavor to flourish very forward in its profile. This is one Berliner that I would love to enjoy time and time again without any trepidations! Wish I could get a growler of it!

On draft at CCB. Yowza! Pours a beautiful shade of orange-red with some red highlights. Nose is a blend of prickly pear, acid, and some light straw, and some tart fruit. Flavor is similar- the prickly and tart citrus is a toned down a hair and the fruit has a bit more room to shine. Palate blends all of the flavors very well. Not overly tart, but a well-blended fruit berliner. It is excellent!

Pours deep pink with white head. Little lacing, thin body, low carbonation, and light prickly pear aroma. Taste is sour prickly pear (strawberry and pear), and some sour banana. Okay.

The best thing about this brew was the hazy ruby body. Among that was the strange aroma... it was like pears and bile! As it warmed up there was a slight fruit-punch flavor mixed in the with the sour esters. Not bad and at 4% a very drinkable brew.
