Draft at Churchkey for the Bluejacket/Funky Buddha/Cigar City event during SAVOR week. Poured a vibrant red color, no head at all. Aroma was tart raspberries. Flavor was fantastic - tart raspberries. Nice! Got me in the jaw like a good sour, tart beer should. Really liked this one. Should have gotten this one a few times instead of some of the other ones I looked into.

Draft. Murky pinkish red color, off white edge head. Aroma of raspberry cheesecake. Taste is softly sour raspberries, cherries, lemons, subtle salt. Delicious. oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2012
On tap at Churckey for the Funky Buddha event. Pure raspberry seeds and hints of lactic funk lead to pronounced acidity and a super fleshy flavor. Light body with a dry finish. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 7, 2012

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Draft at monks during the funky Buddha. Pours a bright, glowing pinkish red body with no head. Aroma is vomit acidity and fresh, tart raspberries. Mouthfeel is tart with notes of funky raspberry and fresh tart fruit skins. callmemickey (4543) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Hazy glowing orange-red-pink body, thin off white head that quickly receded, no lacing. Nose is full of jammy, seedy raspberries. Intense, but suggests an artificially sweetened construction. Flavor is similar, tasty, but somewhat unnatural. Light bodied, not particularly refreshing for a berliner, strongly acidic without a nice tartness, and moderately cloying toward the end of the full glass. Lacking the things that make berliners great. PhillyCraft (7228) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at the Den. Pours resembles a grapefruit mimosa, with minimal head and lacing. Aromas of ultra funked and butted out sour dough, raspberry, tons of yeast, weird cheese, wet wood. Taste is the same with some grapefruit, raspberry jam, funky yeast, and wood complexity. Serious funk. Awesome Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2012
Great glowing neon pink color. flavor is sour and bitter, Mouthfeel is very sour, feel it in the jaw. It’s not overly sweet, the fruity flavor does shine through. the malt is also present, giving this a depth that many other berliner weisse don’t have. Pretty darn good. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle. Pours pink lemonade with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and no lacing. Aroma is sour fruit, cabbage, raspberry, toffee, and straw. Flavor is heavy fruit esters with some wheat/grassy supporting flavors; dry, tart finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.
