I know from first-hand sources that the berries are fresh ---- the pulp clogged the bottling filter lines the first few runs according to my source. Crisp and refreshing, even under the gray skies of Pittsburgh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 NEW: had again, not quite as good as the first but still pretty good. OLD RATING:Yes, this stuff is a vivid cluster when poured, pink almost gushing foaming little globules in cloudy pour, quite a sight! Clean berry aroma. For taste this stuff almost comes off as a wild yeast. Could almost say this is near lambic, berliner or sour. Tart backbone with a medium pleasannt fruity feel. Very interesting texture on the palate. Very good fine sizzle to the tongue. Much better than most fruit beers. May I say again this brew looks deliteful in the glass when poured, very active an asthetic. Well done, hope they can duplicate this in the next batch.

Hey! I expected ratings for this to be much higher. This is a tasty little weissbier, berried - but not buried - and sweet. Ain’t I funny. Almost no head, the color of fruit punch, plenty of wheaty residual goodness. It’s very enticing to look at. I like it!

I am typically not a fruit beer guy, but this one was delicious! The berry flavor is so fresh and blended perfectly with the hops and malts. Yum!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 11-11-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention fading to give a lighter level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is of sweet berries and a little bit of biscuit. The fruit is heaviest of a raspberry aroma with some lighter notes of blueberry and strawberry. Sweet and fruity.
Taste – The taste starts out of a wheaty and bready flavor mixed with some lighter berry sweetness. The sweetness gets stronger more towards the middle of the taste with the raspberry being he strongest. In the end a yeasty flavor joins the sweet and wheat and leave a lightly sweetened berry flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation that is average to above average. The lighter body is nice for the berry and wheat flavors of the beer with the carbonation level making it quite drinkable.
Overall – A refreshing berry brew. Very easy drinking, not too sweet and rather authentic fruit tasting. Not too bad.

I agree with others, interesting pour. It’s worth buying a bottle just for the pour. The aroma was pleasant, light berry. Interesting complexity going on with this brew. Some sour/tart and hints of yeast flavoring. Too much carbonation, looked liked a cherry ginger ale. Small head, but could be compared to a lambic Berliner or sour (good call cheapdark). Worth the try, it was fresh, clean and crisp.

On tap at a wedding. Pours a dark reddish hue, clear, with a thin tan head. The aroma is mostly sweet berries and some light grain. Quite a surprising flavor with tart fruit alongside more common light berries and earthy malts. Not sure what to make of this, it comes in between a Berliner and a light Hefe with fruit, very good. Lots of wheat.

Pink tinged copper in the glass with pinkish head. Slightly tart berry and grain aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel with a touch of berry sweetness. Nice. Great for the summer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Coney. Light berry aroma, mix of sweet and tart. Light hop note. Red amber hazy with light pink lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts medium dry with light tart berry flavor - can’t tell which berry is predominant. Medium bitter finish with fruity tart after. Watery but a nice summer quencher.
