Sampled and shared by Bacterial via 750 ml bottle. Pours a semi-clear golden straw colored brew with a fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lace but a thin film top. Aroma of tart funk, light hibiscus, tart lemon zest and a touch of kiwi. Taste is medium bodied, tart funkiness flavors with hibiscus and kiwi fruit. Finish is quite tart with a lingering kiwi fruit and lemon zest aftertaste.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, very hazy yellow-orange almost pink with thin white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, white fruit, kiwi, some strawberry, hints of very slight floral notes, hints of bready malts. Taste is a mix of nice orange, grass, kiwi, strawberry, hints of peach, lemon, slight yeast, finishing tart, dry. Pretty nice.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle share: Pretty beer with a rose colored hue but after that things went downhill. Most noticeable was the big yogurt vapour and cheesy taste that when paired with the hibiscus drowns out almost all of the fruit flavors and there was not a lot of tartness to counteract. In fact the bit of fruit I did get was sweet strawberry jam that seemed out of place too. I drank a lot of great beer on this day, so having one or two bomb is not so bad. The lactic acid sour mash did not work properly... much like the failed (for almost everyone) Pipeworks Blue Lady 1st batch

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pinkish gold color with tons of carbonation but a fairly subdued white head. Lots of sour and strawberry aromas wafting up, but also some sort of synthetic aroma I canít quite put my finger on, reminds me of a hospital. More sour, more strawberries on the tongue. Also a floral note in the taste, but very distinct from the floral flavors you get from hops. Iíve never tried hibiscus but I guess thatís what that is. Light and fizzy mouthfeel that sort of foams up as you drink it and is amazing on a sticky summer evening. Great summer beer and another good Berliner out of Night Shift, I bought this in June or July for about $10 at the brewery.

Shared at the Batch 600 release in the Swamp Head parking lot. Pours orangish red colored with a fluffy white head. Aroma of some strawberry and floral notes, wheaty berliner and yeasty sour notes. Flavor follows with lightly tart notes and strawberry, floral flavors, wheaty berliner finish is there but subdued. Light bodied and high carbonation. Though Iím not a huge fan of the style, this was pretty solid. I wouldnít turn it down if offered again. Thanks for the share!
