Ein wunderbares Bier mit einer feinen fruchtigen Note und einer tollen Ausgewogenheit in der herben Ecke nebst der Säure. Kirsche und Beeren wechseln sich hier ab mit einer leichten Getreidigkeit. Daneben mehr als süffig und wunderbar im Abgang.

Bottle from trade with HenrikO, many thanks! The beer has got a dark brown-ruby colour with a small head and medium body. Aroma of cherries, barrel and barley. Taste of mild acid, brown ale, cherries, unripeness, barrels, woods and citric. Well balanced sourness. Enjoyed it.

Pour out of bottle, thanks Jeff! Dark reddish brownish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of sour cherry, berry, vanilla, oak, lemon, slight acetic, hints of spice. Taste was a mix of cherry, oak, lemon, hints of spice, touch of slight funk, finishing slightly tart, slightly sweet.

Bottle at Bills. Pours a dceep murky body. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet cherries, vinegar, lots of acidity, sour wheat and spice. I don’t think I would label this a berliner on blind tasting.

Bottle: The aroma consists of mild cherry, cola, light vanilla, and oak. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a small off-white head that quickly fades to almost nothing. The flavor starts with cherry and light cola. The finish has mild lemon with a hint of vanilla, oak, and grain. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation.

Darker brown body, thin light tan head, spotty lacing. Cherry cola, light milk chocolate, lagery bread, some wheat, more acetic than lactic. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily, mild acidity. Not particularly pleasurable.

PhillyCraft (5229) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle shared by someone at Bills. Notes of cherry chocolate, acidic berries, dust, and all around weird notes. Nothing Berliner like about it. More of a bad dark saison that got somewhat infected.

Bottle. Aroma is a brown caramel malt. Taste is very medicinal. Cherry cough drops with a bit of sourness. Different but weird.

The beer is a brownish red color. It’s fairly hazy. The head is off white and fizzy. It fades quickly and no bubbles remain. The aroma is cherries, oak, mild bourbon and a healthy dose of lactic sour Berliner character. It smells a lot like a cherry cider. The flavor is moderately sour, pretty light before the beer warms up to room temp. The flavors from the barrel and the base beer are milder than expected. It has a fairly strong tannic quality from the oak, a drying wood bitterness. It could be a bit drier with sharper acidity. As is, the beer is somewhat lackluster. It’s an interesting idea and definitely not bad, but it just feels like the oak sapped the beer’s life somewhat.
