Draft at liquor express. Pours cherry red with a thin white head. Smells like salt with a hint of cherry tint. Very tart with a hint of salt on the tongue. I get some traces of the cherry. Not my favorite example of the style.

growler fill @ Liqour express - pours clear dark red with a thin white head. Very tart cherries, sour burn on the finish. Palate is thin, but syrupy. I’m not feeling this one, but it’s a solid example of style.

Growler... Clear dirty-orange pour with flashes of ruby and no head. The nose is a nice marriage of raspberries and sharp acidity. I’m picking up no cherries here. Light-bodied and watery with tingly carbonation. The flavor is tart and lightly fruity, but also quite thin. Finishes tart and mildly fruity. I could drink a lot of this Florida weisse. A shout goes out to Elliesbrown for providing the growler!

Growler shared at Hunhapu day, poured a light pink color with aromas of light tart cherries, some raspberries, and a touch of light barnyard. Flavors are the same, light on the palate overall, a solid Berliner overall.

Pours a hazy pink on tap with thin pink-white head and light lacing. Aroma of sour cherries and a hint of wheat. Taste is tart fruit with a hint of medicinal cherry cough syrup. Interesting, well done.

Tap @ 33 Wine St. Louis. Pours a bit hazy, bright red appearance with a bubbly, pink head. Cherry soda-like, well carbonated aroma with some cool funky notes. Fairly tart, spritzy cherry, funky, light cheesy flavor. Cool brew!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8oz Draft A - Fizzy cherry koolaid with a pink head that diminishes fast S - Not an overwhelming nose, light funk, basment, tart, faint cherry T - Tart, weak cherry, bitter, wanted more cherries?! M - Light bodied, fizzy mouth, tart/sour watery finish O - If 1809 is the standard in Berliner Weisse this one falls short.
