COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michael Jackson describes “Berlin White Beer” as having an “insistent sparkle, a fragrant fruitiness in the nose, a sharp, dry palate, and a frisson of quenching, sour acidity in the finish.”

North Coast Tart Cherry Berliner Weisse is made with the juice of Michigan Montmorency cherries, whose addition softens the lactic finish of the beer and gives it a springtime blush.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8362) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark red color with a small foamy white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was tart and sour cherries and cinnamon. The flavor was tart and sourish with a cherry pie presence. Long cherry pie finish. Medium body. Interesting.

Pinkish copper pour with minimal white fizzy head. Tart cherry, Light hay, light yeast, sweet fruit. Gets close to candy-like but the sharpness backs it off. Bright. Medium thin body. Rocking.

Poured a pinkish red color from the bottle with aromas of tart cherries, light tart wheat, some light hay. Flavors are the same, light cherry skin with some tartness, light wheat and grainy aftertaste, solid.

Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a hazy pinkish orange with very fine fizzy white head that has a slightly pink hue to it. Smells and tastes tart, wheaty, and biscuity with a well-balanced cherry presence. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied and a touch syrupy. Still, enjoyable.

ctipping (2299) - Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2017
650 mL clear bottle. Bold move, North Coast. Light reddish clear body. Smells of cherry, a touch of funk and yeast. Tastes very lightly tart. Cherry flavor is pretty sweet. Grainy and mineral back end, but mostly sweet. Medium light. Decent, if a little too sweet.

On draft at HopCat. The pour is a pale light pink with a thin light white/gray head and no lace. The aroma is sweet cherry juice through and through. The tart cherry must have been forgotten here. The Berliner offers a wheatiness but this is not my fave. The flavor leaves a lot to be desired. Sweet fruit juice and a light wheatiness. This not anything like a tart cherry or a good Berliner. Ugh. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied with a softer carbonation and a syrupy cherry finish without a lot of the tartness. Bummer.
