2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours and orange-ish red color with a light pink head. Definite cherry on the nose, but sort of sweet and sugary. A bit on the candy/pie side of things. A bit of straw and light to moderate tartness. The nose is a touch metallic as well. The flavor is kind of bland and watery. Some cherry, notes of grape skin, and mild grass and straw. A hint of tartness, some cherry pie, and buttery pie crust. Really weird.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy red color with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of cherries and lightly tart malts. The taste is citrus, red wine, cherries. Lightly tart. Thin, watery and bland. Very disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Jack Rose thanks to Naheem. Cloudy orange to red pour with small white foam. Nose is sour Shorts style PB&J with odd acid and grape jam. Taste has an odd mix of acids. Small butyric, light lactic, light citric. Overall yogurty lactic. I'm enjoying this. Mild metallic flavors clean up. Decently successful for the Berliner Weisse category. Nose needs help. Served in a weizen glass. Okay.. Refreshing at the very least.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Beer Table, Brooklyn, NY.
Cloudy light red colour with tiny white head. Mild aroma of red berries. Flavour is also quite mild with fresh red berry juice and mild hints of cherry. It’s not sour but it’s not sweet either (which is good). Surprisingly mild flavour. Easy-to-drink and not that rewarding. Some maltiness on the back.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Craft. Poured dark straw with off-pinkish head. Nose was earthy and tart cherry. Tasted or earthy lactic tart cherry, with a bit more emerging sweetness as it warmed, and a rich palate. This one was much better than I had hoped.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Rattle N Hum prior to going to The Gate for a Carton event. Pours a hazed brown amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Cherry on the nose, medicinal, smells of cough drops. Medium bodied, sweet, cherry cough syrup. Malt, odd acid, grain. Dries out and gets a bit grainy. Lots of tart acid, drinks pretty well in spite of the shortcomings. Grainy cherries on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft with Dallas at Pony bar. Pours a thick hazy red body with thin white lacing. Aroma is sour cherry and light malt. Mouthfeel is more pleasant than the aroma leads you to believe - notes of sour cherry, light wood, grain, and malts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Alewife, Baltimore - this is a Berliner Weisse with cherries, so it should probably be listed as a Berliner - when taken as a fruit Berliner, this scores fairly high marks for me - the approach is all Berliner - moderate lactic tanginess - refreshing, light body - the cherry comes on strong through the middle first the earthy, mildly bitter notes of the peels and pits - then, the moderate sweetness of the meat of the fruit - lactic tartness returns in the finish, which is light and quenching - a solid fruit Berliner.
