Backlog from EBF. Pours out a cranberry juice color with a small off white head. Aroma is of berries, tart/sweet, funk, lactose. Taste is solid, tart and sweet blueberries, light cinnamon sugar, some funky tartness, light vinous notes. Nice balance between tart and sweet.

Sampled at the Societe Party 2016. It poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma was of blueberries, cinnamon, malts and some funk. The taste was similar with more blueberries, cinnamon, fruits, sourness and tarts. Quite tasty.

Sampled at a fest. A lot going on for a Berliner Weiss. Berries and spices, mildly tart but rich, too. Complex goodness. Not a style I usually get, but I do get this one.

Pours ruby-tinged violet into a tulip. White head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sour blueberry and balsamic aromas. Sweet and sour lactic blueberry upfront turning cinnamon and marshmallow before the lasting dry tart skin finish.

Thanks to callmemickey for sharing.
Pours a hazy pink grapefruit color with a one finger white head that slowly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind.
Strong cinnamon component in the nose but I’m not picking up much blueberry. Slightly solvent/acetic but not too harsh with some citrus acidity, sourdough bread and wheat character. Truer to style than the other two I’ve tried(Somer and Ever). Some darker fruit comes out as it warms but the aroma is still dominated by spice and citrus.
Tart and puckering with strong sour acidity and slight acetone character. Not too harsh or solvent like though. Spicy cinnamon adds a nice touch to the bread/yeast, wheat and acidic flavors . Slight mineral quality in the finish but again, I’m not picking up much blueberry. A bit one dimensional but the cinnamon is a nice touch and a unique take on the style. Slightly harsh but decently drinkable.

Draft @ Babba in Boston. Dark brown to black with noticeable purple hue. Very tart, juicy red grapes, fairly acidic. A little astringent. Almost grape juice, not a ton to note beyond the fruit and sour. Still liked.

75cl bottle via trade. It pours a rich dark ruby color with few fizzy pink bubbles that dissipate quickly. Aroma is intense fruity and lactic sour, with lemon juice, yoghurt, blueberries, cranberries and light cinnamon and spices. Taste is tart and acidic, with lemon juice, blueberries, cranberries, cinnamon, Greek yoghurt. Light bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, incredibly tasty, excellent

The beer light amber orangey color. Fairly cloudy. Small to medium white head, dissipates pretty quickly. The aroma is an interesting mix. Tart bluberries, lemons, some woodsy cinnamon. Some yogurty flavor and a pretty good vinegar kick. Mild funk. Taste is medium to strongly sour. Big lemon juice note. Some blueberry flavor. Cinnamon is pretty mild. It’s just a bit too acidic for my taste. Pretty big vinegar note. The feel is light but a bit bracing. Lots of pucker.

Bottle share @ Cycle, St. Pete, thanks Glen. Bottled 12/05/2014.
Couleur pourpre, col fin blanc.
Arôme au bouquet fruité agréable avec une impression de jus de tomate et ce côté persistant de légume. Peut-être l’effet de purée de myrtilles couplé à la cannelle?
Palais est légèrement aigre, fruité de myrtilles, fini sec avec ce côté sour mash de Berliner. Fini de grains et tjrs ce côté renforcé de jus de tomate et je note pas grand chose venant de la cannelle.
