brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2012
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.

Draft. Murky pink color, small white head. Aroma of lemons and sour cherries. Taste is softly sour fruIt and feet. Nice.

GT2 (8267) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 23, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2012
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.

BMan1113VR (7833) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 27, 2013
On tap. Pours with a clear pinkish-golden hued body with minimal head. Aromas are grainy, wheat, cranberry, red wine (cheap), apple cider, lightly lactic and malic cherries. Flavors are of lactic acid, dry, grainy, artificial cherry. Bland. Lively bubbles, dry and a bit vinous.

DocLock (7727) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
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.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2012
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.

rosenbergh (6530) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2012
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. Itís not sour but itís not sweet either (which is good). Surprisingly mild flavour. Easy-to-drink and not that rewarding. Some maltiness on the back.

jredmond (5250) - Manhattan, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2012
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.

notalush (4788) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2012
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.
