COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With late season access to some Maine wild blueberries, we capture a bit of "the way life should be" in this rich, full-flavored winter sour. Mainer Weisse has a nose of ripe berry and cinnamon spice, warming hints of the holidays. Its sips fruity, tart, and bold, finishing with a sweet and surely-sour bite. It is blue and it is beautiful.

bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Nose is very tart with a hint of cinnamon. Taste is puckering. Cinnamon comes through in the flavor. Light fruitiness. Much pucker as it warms.

Bottle at my pool. Pours a deep orange, almost amber. Aroma is tart, spicey, sharp. Taste is sour, tart, spicey, and again sharp. More lip puckering than the other variants. Think the cinamon gives it a spicey character. I find myself licking my lips a lot. Damn tasty. Think this is my favorite so far.

Bottle sample from "hannont". Colour...cloudy, light amber with a pinky hue. Nose...highly acetic with sweet spicy notes, esp. cinnamon. Palate...massively puckery with loads tart orchard fruits, lemon zest and underripe blueberries. The pucker affect fades at the back of the palate but a spicy blueberry pie flavour lingers.

Bottle @ His Great Return Tasting. Cheers to Leighton for providing this! Hazy deep gold pour with a small white head. Big unwashed rhubarb, notes of strawberry. A bit of sea salt and dirty root vegetables. Earthy spiced flavors. Canned plums and a bit of tart strawberry. Mild acid on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent.

Bottle courtesy of a recent Tampa Tasting. Pours a hazy purple color with an ephemeral white head. Nose is big tart berries, spice, yeast, and berry flesh. Flavor is similar with yeast, berry, berry flesh, and massive tartness. Light to medium in body and a nice berliner overall.

Bottle split at the Jack is back tasting, thanks once more to Leighton, 06/03/14. Orange amber with small off white edgeing. Nose is tarte fruit, ginger, rhubarb, bitter orange. Taste comprises tangy mixed fruit sherbet, light acid, peach, pithy orange, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, acidic pangs in a semi refreshing close. Ok ’Linner, not top draw but solid enough.

Bottle shred in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours hazy gold with a fine, foamy white head. The nose has some doughy malts, ripe blueberries. Light sweet flavor with assertive tart berries, mild sweat, some funk. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Tart finish, a bit of pale bread, some lightly plastic fruits, sweaty berries. Not bad.
