Pinky Swear, a Berliner Weisse by Coppertail Brewing Co.

Share This Review

Pinky Swear is a Berliner Weisse brewed by Coppertail Brewing Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from bottle.


The Berliner pours a clear, rosy pink with a thin white head of bubbly froth that fizzes away rapidly.


A tart aroma mixes lemon and raspberry, backed by a hint of musty wheat.

Palate follows the nose with sour notes of lemon and raspberry. Flavor is clean and tangy; somewhat akin to a Jolly Rancher. Finishes dryly with a lingering bite of lemon juice. Taste is rounded out with an undercurrent of doughy white bread.


A crisp mouthfeel has a nice, light body but could use a little more carbonation.


Coppertail has dubbed the Pinky Swear as a “Florida Weisse”—a more flavorful rendition of a traditional Berliner. Is that accurate? Seems I’ve had other Berliners that were just as flavorful. And that isn’t to take anything away from this brew. It’s a fine beer and its low ABV, refreshing tartness suits these hot summer days.
