Ninkasi Brewing Co. Brightberry

What the brewers say

“The smell of ripe berries in the air, the salty mist... Sweet and tangy with a tart finish.”

What our panel thought

“Fairly clean, almost soapy aroma gives subtle hints of lime and lemon citrus; lingering raspberry gives way to soft bready malt. Flavor is surprisingly malty with hints of pilsner, wheat, lemongrass, and earthy hops. Light sourness and mild tartness. Assertive acidity on the finish leaves the fruit as an afterthought.”

What our editors thought

“A murky nose hides potentially bright notes in the soft haze of refermented fruit. The sip is obscured by water chemistry, leaving a hint of defined fruit in your first breath afterward.”
