3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy glowing orange-red-pink body, thin off white head that quickly receded, no lacing. Nose is full of jammy, seedy raspberries. Intense, but suggests an artificially sweetened construction. Flavor is similar, tasty, but somewhat unnatural. Light bodied, not particularly refreshing for a berliner, strongly acidic without a nice tartness, and moderately cloying toward the end of the full glass. Lacking the things that make berliners great.

On tap at the Den. Pours resembles a grapefruit mimosa, with minimal head and lacing. Aromas of ultra funked and butted out sour dough, raspberry, tons of yeast, weird cheese, wet wood. Taste is the same with some grapefruit, raspberry jam, funky yeast, and wood complexity. Serious funk. Awesome

Great glowing neon pink color. flavor is sour and bitter, Mouthfeel is very sour, feel it in the jaw. It’s not overly sweet, the fruity flavor does shine through. the malt is also present, giving this a depth that many other berliner weisse don’t have. Pretty darn good.
