mcberko (9223) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours an opaque pinkish orange amber with a small pink head. Aroma brings out loads of pithy blackberries, with medium tartness and light funk. Flavour is along the same lines, with super fruity, pithy blackberries, medium tartness and light oak. Not the most complex of the Bus, but very well-incorporated. Solid simple Berliner.

750. Glowing dark red. Amazing color. Sour bitter fruit. Has a lot of fruit skin, as opposed to the juicy fruit.

j12601 (7700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle at James’ 10k tasting. Pours a murky ruby amber with a thin white head. Musky with berries. Medium bodied, spicy berries, soft musk. Funky with tart citrus. Tangy, acid on the finish.

Ibrew2or3 (7423) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 3, 2015
750mL bottle pours with a sludgy looking opaque cherry juice throw-up sort of thing (but in the best possible way) and topped with a dark pink head of foam. The aroma offers up spikes of tartness, berry must tartness, some sweet berry odors and then faint funkiness. The taste delivers plenty of punchy sensations with a nice thick berry juice sweetness undercut by berry and other various tart notes. These flavors tug the experience in opposite directions but somehow maintain a tasty harmony that beckons further sips. Solid Berliner.
