Draft at EBF, went back for multiples, my second favorite beer of the festival. Excellent rich fruitiness, nice lactic tartness, great flavors, extremely drinkable, vibrant. The real deal.

mabel (8537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2016
[8122-20160401] 750mL bottle. Soured fruity yeasty bread aroma has a hint of ravioli pasta thing. Hazy, orange pink body with no lasting head. Super soured fruity kiwi and melon flavour just melts away the insides of my mouth. Medium body is super, super sour. Almost as sour as the kiwi Upland brew, and fairly enjoyable. (8-/3/8/5/15) 3.9

jercraigs (9722) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
2016-04-01. Lightly hazy golden peach body with a small frothy head which fades quickly. Aroma of sour and funky fruit. Flavour is pretty sour and acidic, fruity melange, berry, melon and kiwi notes. Lingering sourness grabs at the throat in the finish. Average bodied palate, moderate eff carbonation. Pretty interesting, really nice, a delicious kick in the balls that is a little intense at times. 7/3/7-8/3/16-17 Bottle from Boston Wine Exchange, Boston.

blankboy (7180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
[Bottle (750ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a hazy golden-peach with a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma is really sour and acidic along with grain, wheat, vinegar and some fruit. Flavour is mouth-puckeringly sour and tart -- it’s good but it’s hard to drink. Medium bodied. Like I said, it’s good but hard to drink much of it.

popery (1976) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Bottled 8/21/2015. 3.3% abv version. The beer is a fleshy pinkish orange color. Off white head, fairly fizzy. No bubbles after a few seconds. The aroma has a great juicy combination of strawberry and kiwi. Very little plastic as you find in a lot of strawberry sours. Mild but firm yoguty lacto flavor. Sort of a floral sweetness in the background. Some lemon and tart tangerine. Taste is tart citrus with mostly strawberries but there’s also a good hit of delicate kiwi sweetness. Medium tart. Doesn’t overwhelm. Quite refreshing. Light feel - a bit of body from the fruit - with sparkly carbonation. Maybe a touch of butter in the aftertaste. Very solid fruited Berliner.

bellco33 (698) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours pink with a tiny white head. Aroma of tart, berries, funk. Taste is very tart with some nice berry juice, a little funky, and a nice dry finish. Light to medium body, excellent Berliner.

yourilevesque (1291) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 30, 2015
Version à 3,3% d’alcool en fût à Boston. La bière est rosée, peu mousseuse et illumine la table de son look rafraîchissant et estival! Une forte effervescence provient du fond de mon verre d’où s’impatiente ce liquide vif et excité. Nez d’une magnifique complexité d’où émanent des arômes naturels de kiwi, de fraise, de pêche, de melon, du citron, de banane... un magnifique cocktail tropical! En bouche ce liquide marqué par une belle acidité affiche également une belle effervescence et des notes sûrettes qui piquent mes joues et activent mes glandes salivaires. Les saveurs demeurent longtemps en bouche, supportées par un corps étonnement souple pour une bière à 3% d’alcool. Un profond sentiment de fraîcheur en bouche avant de m’envoyer une Bourbon County Rye en fût au même endroit!

Sampled at esbls. golden with just a little foam. Nice crispness and tartness here. Moderate sourness. Gentle fruit is complex. It builds as it warms. Nice.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Pours a very hazy grapefruit cocktail color with a one finger, off-white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Musty, funky aroma with some faint light fruit sweetness nicely integrated into the Berliner notes. Dank and sweaty with plenty of funky lactic cheesiness complimented by a subtle floral presence, some sourdough bread and sweet, slightly vinous light fruit notes. Strong musty bug/wild yeast character along with some strawberry and cream, raspberry, currant and other sweet berries. Floral notes comes on stronger as it warms. Complex with nice balance in the nose. Medium body with a lot of harsh acidity and slight acetone/solvent character. Very sour with lots of funky bugs, citric acidity and lactic funk along with some dry toothpick-y oak and light fruit sweetness. Hints of strawbery and cream with some cherry and other sweet berries. Well integrated sweetness and a decent amount of sourness but this beer is a bit harsh with too sting of a solvent presence for my preference.

DuffMan (9505) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle, sent to me by b3shine (thanks Beau!). Very hazy bright orange, brisk carbonation, short lived white head. Unripened strawberries, tart/lightly sour rhubarb, nuances of green kiwi. The floral hibiscus shows up later on, as my palate adjusts to the acidity. Tart/lightly sour, quenching, and very nicely flavoured.
