3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up at BrewDog Clapham. It pours crazy bright red with a medium pink head. The nose is earthy, barnyard, mild sweetness, cherry, berry skin and candy cane. The taste is crisp, tart, dry, juicy cherry, sherbet, almond, marzipan undertones and light mouth-pucker with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Simple, tart and easy-going. Super drinkable stuff.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at Matt’s; 5.9% ABV
Bright blood and ruby color with pinkish color. Very nice aroma, lively, some cherry, but the mild acidity creates a berry impression. Dry, tart, light cherry flavor, but weak; light final astringency.
Simpler than expected; very nice aroma, but lacking in flavor.

Refreshing finish with more tart cherries, mild tannins, slight bitter grass. Lovely stuff. Supremely drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright red pour with a pink head. Aroma of cherries, tart lemon, wheat. Actually well balanced, with the sweet berry flavours complimenting rather than overpowering the lemon tartness of the Berliner. Not overly acidic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a deep red color Berliner with a bright pink foamy head with good retention and some light traces of lacing. Aroma of intense cherry notes with light tart notes clearly noticeable. Taste is a perfect balance between some intense cherry notes with almost no residual sugar and tart notes with almost no acidity detectable. Body is full for style with perfect carbonation. So good and I should have bought a ton more of these.

11.5 oz bottle courtesy of Raphael, served in a branded stem glass. Pours clear pinkish red with a small pink head that fades quickly to a few bubbles. The nose has big notes of cherry, tart fruit, berries, wheat, subtle hops and lactate. The flavour is moderately tart with big cherry notes, lactic acid, wheat and subtle hops. The finish is moderate in length, tart and fruity. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and almost no carbonation. Overall a nice sour wheat ale with big cherry notes. 2014-09-14

Another great Berliner by DDC. Thanks Dominic. Pours a deep red with pinkish red head. This smells like a piece of cherry pie. Awesome. Very sour cherry flavors, cherry yogurt, lemon, raspberry. Tart cherry throughout. So good.

Dégustée au Festibière de Chambly. Couleur rouge vin. Arômes de cerises sûres et de blé. Même chose pour les saveurs. Moins Sûre que celle aux framboises. Très bon!
