3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another from the Thanksgiving bunch. Pours a light pink with a bubbling white head. Smells of tart rasberry and its got me salivating. Iíve had some weak berliners in my day but this one nails it. Not puckeringly tart but dont let that fool you there is some serious sour to this. The rasberry is refreshing and wonderfully present, and with the way this thing drys out i could drink it for days...weeks...or...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gorgeous rose color, large pink head. Aroma of softly sour raspberry, citrus. Taste is softly sour fruit. Doesnít 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!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. Itís light bodied with lively, but not prickly, carbonation. Overall, this is what Blue Lady probably strives to be...only with raspberries.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Bottle from Binnyís. 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.
