The Well Read Temptress is the second of our sour and seductive ladies. This ravishing raspberry Berliner style weisse knows how to read between the lines with her cheeky tartness and crisp finish.

Bottle. Gorgeous rose color, large pink head. Aroma of softly sour raspberry, citrus. Taste is softly sour fruit. Doesn’t taste very berliner weissey, but more like a very nice lambic. Reminds me of Rose de Gambrinus. Delicious. Nice to see this one in DC!

Thanks, Adam! Hazy dark pink pour with a light pink head. Huge raspberry aroma. Lots of grass, straw, and wheat. Some hints of candied fruit sweetness, lemon zest, and a bit of yeast. Slight mineral quality to the flavor. Really nice fruit character, tons of fresh raspberry, tart lemon, and quite a bit of grass. A bit of malt, fruit, and sugar sweetness, to balance things out.

madvike (2658) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle - Pours pinkish with a thin pinkish-white head. Nose is seedy raspberry, really jammy with a bit of plastic and a touch of mineral. Taste is a nice lightly soured wheat with a bit of mineral, nice raspberry, all seedy and jammy. Finishes with a nice citric tang. Smooth and fluffy in the mouth. Tits.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby pinkish red with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of tart raspberries with a hint of sweetness and a nice crispness. Flavor has more of a reserved tartness from the raspberries that have a bit of an earthy note but the tartness does grow through the finish.

Pours a bright pink with no head. Aroma of berries, sweet fruit. Taste is tart, fruity and a little funky. Decent Berliner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pailhead (4574) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of heavy raspberry with a touch of lemon and a hint of vanilla. It pours a cloudy pinkish-orange with a two finger pinkish head that has decent retention. Pouring out of the bottle, it basically looks like pink lemonade with some carbonation. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy tart raspberry. The finish has a moderate lemon with a hint of vanilla. It’s light bodied with lively, but not prickly, carbonation. Overall, this is what Blue Lady probably strives to be...only with raspberries.

crossovert (6928) - Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Amazing reddish pour with a rose-tinged head. Smell is sour with a hint of berries and cream. Flavor is a mix of wheat, berry, and lemon. It is extremely tart and dry and there are no wierd off-flavors. In the same school as say a Tartare.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle from Binny’s. Pours a cloudy Pepto-pink with a thin head. Nose is bright raspberry lemonade, faint yogurt and CLEAN! Nice acidity here to go with the fruit. On tasting, very quenching and light bodied. Raspberry skins/tannins balancing the big acidity. Quite tart and fresh. Pink lemonade notes persist here. What more can I say? A really nice and rounded fruit Berliner.

Pours light red with raspberry notes. Light mouthfeel shows a sweet but lightly sour ale that gives a nice backbone of the grains.
