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.

Shared at Ale Alpharetta. Cloudy red color, with no head. Strong raspberry, spice, lots of hard cheese, and white sugar. Tart, with some fruity sweetness. Light to medium body, very acidic, crisp, and lively. This is a very nice, fruity beer. Balanced tartness.

Cybercat (3986) - Georgia, USA - JUN 18, 2015
Pours hazy bluish brown with a thin buff head. Malty aroma has a strong blueberry overtone, sweet but not cloying. Fruity flVor is just a little sour, with a malty undertone. Mouthfeel has thin body and not much fizz, but a nice sour berry finish. Give a hoot.

ineedbeer (1166) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Aroma is fruity with a fairly strong blueberry character. Some medium cinnamon notes actually work well with the blueberry. Light lemon acidity. Pours a fairly clear, purple red with a medium small, somewhat thin pink head that recedes quickly to the edges. Flavor has a medium strong acidity with a moderate cinnamon note that balances the moderate blueberry character. Some light citrus notes. Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer. I think the cinnamon adds some nice complexity and helps the beer not fall short when the blueberry leaves. Good flavor and aroma. I didn?t realize the blueberry and cinnamon would work so well.

Sample @ EBF.

Appearance: Dark reddish purple with a small purple-ish head and little lacing.

Aroma: Berries (blackberries, blueberries), quite fruity, lactic/yogurt notes, leafy notes and mild spiciness.

Taste: Mild. Quite fruity. Berries forward. Lactic, mild spiciness and herbal/leafy presence.

Palate: Light to medium body. Medium to good carbonation. Fruity and slightly spicy finish. Quite lactic. A tad oaky too.

Overall: Very good fruited berliner. A bit acidic, but it’s still quite drinkable and well balanced. Quenching. Tasty. Loved it.
