Pour is a dark ruby in color with a light pink head. Nose has a ton of juicy raspberry with notes of lactic acid. Very simple. Taste has a bit more going on. Raspberry’s aren’t as seedy, some leathery brett, lactic acid mid to back palate and faint tartness in the finish. Softer creamy body, moderate carb and quite a dry finish.

I could go on and on about appearance, aroma, taste, etc. But why? All you need to know is that this is a fucking explosion of raspberry deliciousness all up in your dome piece. And I need a few cases of this shit, STAT. Imminently sessionable, and somehow pushes 6% as a berliner. GET IN MAH BELLY!

Bottle. Pours hazy cranberry red with tiny head if anything. Aromas and flavor are pronounced raspberry and raspberry jam, lactic funk, lemons, wheat, and strawberry candy. Light and refreshing palate with a puckery close on the tongue. Great

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 [ Bottle ][ ˝ of 34.1cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Snifter ][ 9.24.14 ]
Heavy ruby, strawberry head fizzes out quickly. Lightly syrupy raspberry nose, sugary, faintly seedy with green vegetal accents and more-than-enough dusty playdoh. Biting sourness up front, stinging citric with raspberry flesh, low seed qualities, no arsenic, decent raspberry that grows with warmth, more seed as well. Mid is coating, waxy and muted compared to the nose, high co2 effervescence drains the finish by comparison, syrupy sweet by contrast, high acid in the watery finish burns and its oily slick all over, not enough effervescence. More vegetal aspects in the end as it warms.

Bright neon red glow, thin white small bubbled ring. Raspberry pith nose dominated by synthetic sweet feel, syrupy with stinging arsenic. High bitterness in flavor, tons of co2, low citric acid stings front palate, berry growing mid in sticky body, less synthetic than nose before a lingering lactic note, fruit is the highlight of the beer-the mid-to-finish.

Thanks tommy for this. Nice bright red body and pink head, though not much of it and quickly fading, no lacing. Aroma of lemons and milk and a touch of raspberry. Taste is quite dry, almost sandy in a sense as it tends to kind of dry out the palate in a literal sense. Tart, with some raspberry elements. Decent fruit berliner weisse.
