Barrel aged Berliner Weiss with blueberry
| Show Hads:
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
On-tap at Tørst in NYC, served in a large wine glass.
A- Pours a dark, opaque blueberry/purple color, has a nice inch of pinkish head, which has great retention and leaves a lot of delicate lacing. It looks awesome.
S- Has a subtle aroma of blueberry flesh, which really starts to come out as the beer warms, there's also a very nice earthy funk, oak and wheat. The aroma is very nice and pretty complex for a Berliner.
T- Tastes great, the tartness is moderate to high, spot-on for a Berliner, mostly lactic acid with a hint of acetic, finishes with a lingering flavor of blueberry skins and juice.
M- Light-bodied, with a tart, dry feel.
O- I was really impressed by this. I had this just a few days after Hunahpu Day, where I tried a lot of great Berliners from Funky Buddha, and this beer is definitely on par with a lot of the best Florida Berliners. I had only had big stouts from Evil Twin before, so it was also cool to see Jeppe do such a different style and to totally nail it. This is a great beer, definitely seek this out.

From 06/01/13 notes. Bought a bottle of this at Tørst in Brooklyn, NY, had about 8oz of the bottle. I previously had 2 sample of this up at EBF in March, but glad to have it again and give it a proper review.
a - Pours a deep reddish-brown color with one inch of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of sour blueberries, vinegar, sour red wine, sour dark fruits, berries, oak, fruity malts, and some light funk in the end. The nose is fantastic on this beer; very fresh and strong, and a ton of awesome sour blueberries and dark fruit. The light funk also adds to it. Top notch.
t - Tastes same sour blueberries, vinegar, tannic, oak, musty notes, earthy notes, and sour red wine. I like the taste, but it is much weaker than the nose and seems like a watered down version of what the nose promised. Still a good taste, it's just that the nose is great.
m - Lighter bodied beer and low carbonation. A little acedic, and pretty easy to drink.
o - Overall this is certainly a good berliner, and one of the better Evil Twin beers that I've had. I think the nose is fantastic; super sour, super fresh, and some light funk adding complexity. It might sound like I didn't like the taste which is not the case; the taste is good, it's just that after the nose this beer had I was hoping for it to be a little more flavorful. Easy to drink, definitely worth checking out if you can get a bottle, and I'd certainly have it again.

Bottle at torst
Light pink head. Color is a red grape purple. Very nice.
Flavors of tart blueberries and light acidity. Wine barrel flavors. Sour and tart. A bit funky. Ends with a touch of medicinal flavor.
Mouthfeel: bubbly and clean. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends very clean.
Overall, this was a really great Berliner. Very easy to drink with the right amount of tartness.
