My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.41
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.2

Intro: A 375ml bottle, with a best before date of 15th February 2023. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A dark ruby reddish purple colour with a big four finger light purple head that had decent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, sour and sweet cherry, raspberry and a touch of raisin. Lightly jammy.
Taste: Sour, tart, cherry, almond, marzipan, yoghurt with a touch of oak.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Looks great, with good cherry plus marzipan aroma and flavours. There appears to be less funk coming from the Spontan base in this Spontanberliner versus the other Spontan ales, which is not a problem, but interesting to note. I also seem to like it whenever they add Frederiksdal cherries to their beers.

Brewski x Cycle 50 States Of Freedom

Brewery: Brewski x Cycle Brewing
Country: Sweden
ABV: 4%
Style: German Berliner Weisse
Other Notes: Berliner Weisse with Lime. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) When our dear beloved friends from Cycle – St. Pete, Murcia – stepped into our brewery for the first time, we knew that this relationship would turn into magical and wonderful beers in a heartbeat. Together we poured the Florida sun, the breath of Swedish nature and a shitload of lime into this bottle. The result is a very refreshing and smooth brew with hints of freedom, motorized scooters and bald eagles, all perfectly balanced for you to enjoy on a warm summer day.
