Hey! I expected ratings for this to be much higher. This is a tasty little weissbier, berried - but not buried - and sweet. Ain’t I funny. Almost no head, the color of fruit punch, plenty of wheaty residual goodness. It’s very enticing to look at. I like it!

Bottle. Pours a pinkish brown with a thin white head and leaves no lacing. Fairly big raspberry on the nose. Fruity taste. A bit dry. All and all a bit one note though not bad for the summer.

Pinkish purple, whitish cover. Aroma is mixed berries, very sweet. Taste is light caramelized malts, lots of blackberry, raspberry mix. Nice fruit beer.

Draft at the brewery. Poured a medium cherry color with a pink hue. Obviously filtered. Aroma was muted, not much at all really. Flavor, however, was excellent mild cherry and strawberry with some grassiness and slight citrus. Palate was almost perfect with a good amount of acidity, great carbonation, and nothing cloying about this beer at all. Surprisingly drinkable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark red-tan color with a large foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was light tangy sugar and vague berry. The flavor was tart and tangy with a vague berry and sugar presence. The finish was medium length berry and sugar. Medium body. Disappointing.

Pink tinged copper in the glass with pinkish head. Slightly tart berry and grain aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel with a touch of berry sweetness. Nice. Great for the summer.

On tap at the Coney. Light berry aroma, mix of sweet and tart. Light hop note. Red amber hazy with light pink lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts medium dry with light tart berry flavor - can’t tell which berry is predominant. Medium bitter finish with fruity tart after. Watery but a nice summer quencher.

I agree with others, interesting pour. It’s worth buying a bottle just for the pour. The aroma was pleasant, light berry. Interesting complexity going on with this brew. Some sour/tart and hints of yeast flavoring. Too much carbonation, looked liked a cherry ginger ale. Small head, but could be compared to a lambic Berliner or sour (good call cheapdark). Worth the try, it was fresh, clean and crisp.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2012 NEW: had again, not quite as good as the first but still pretty good. OLD RATING:Yes, this stuff is a vivid cluster when poured, pink almost gushing foaming little globules in cloudy pour, quite a sight! Clean berry aroma. For taste this stuff almost comes off as a wild yeast. Could almost say this is near lambic, berliner or sour. Tart backbone with a medium pleasannt fruity feel. Very interesting texture on the palate. Very good fine sizzle to the tongue. Much better than most fruit beers. May I say again this brew looks deliteful in the glass when poured, very active an asthetic. Well done, hope they can duplicate this in the next batch.

A refreshing lawnmower beer. Aroma was decent. Light berry flavor with hints of yeast. Pour was stunning. There was a ton of thick sediment floating around the light murky pink beer. Plenty of rising bubbles with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was a little thin and weak. Light berry flavor with hints of tart wheat and slight clove. Very strong biting carbonation makes this beer refreshing and crisp. Overall, it’s a very basic fruit/wheat beer
