Anova167 (379) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - OCT 17, 2017
beautiful pink pour with a fizzy white head. Big aroma of raspberries and some lactic sourness. Flavor is tart without being overwhelming with raspberries at the fore and coffee in the finish. the coffee gives it almost a chocolatey note at the end that is quite pleasant. thin watery mouth feel, but a good beer.

On tap at CBC Boston 2017. Comes pale red with a decent pinkish head. Aroma and taste of tart raspberries and coffee. Interesting in a good way.

jbruner (5123) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Pours a hazy pink from the can with bubbly pink white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big raspberry notes with a mild fruity coffee tone underneath. Taste is lactic acidity and tart raspberry up front, with just a touch of coffee on the back end. Interesting, pretty good.

emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2017
Cloudy/hazy pinkish pour with two fingers of pink head. Nose shows tannic raspberry and sweet java coffee. Some raspberry seed and a light acidity. Nice flavor but simple and not dynamic. Mouthfeel is lacking structure and body. Lean and dry with a thin feel and lacks carbonation. Light acidity and tannic raspberry seed quality. Coffee on the finish. Nice but not great.

Boston CBC: pours pale red with a white head. Aroma is funk and light raspberry. Taste is light bits of coffee and dry raspberry. Some sour. Kind of interesting.

Sampler at Copenhagen Boston. Pours red with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of raspberry and coffee notes on the nose and tongue. It's hella tart. Finished clean. Nice.

chucklemation (1747) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Pours a bright pink/red with a pink foam head. Aroma is raspberry, light coffee, and lactic acid. Flavor is lightly tart lactic with raspberry and coffee. Has some carbonation and a light body. This is an interesting, enjoyable beer.

Blind tasted with 3 other fruited berliner weisses, beers were: 1. Arcadia MI-Berry Vice 2. Mikkeller San Diego Fruit Face - Raspberry Coffee / Blush 3. Fordham The 11th Sour 4. The Dudes Juicebox Series: Peach Berliner Weisse. Rater 1 rated the beers 1342, Rater 2 (ME):3412, Rater 3: 4312.

473ml can. Berry pour. Aroma is berry and vegetal. Flavor is green pepper, sour berry, malty.

Post tasting thoughts:
As is the case in many coffee beers the green pepper aspect ruins this one.
