Theydon_Bois (9944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Keg at Fat Heads, PDX, 09/11/14. Lightly hazed pale golden with a decent off white covering. Nose is tangy citrics, light vinegar notes, straw, pissy, lemon jus. Taste comprises bitter citric rinds, damp straw, acidity is quite high approaching amber, tangy citric linger. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent ’Linner, not an entry level affair, carries quite the vinecidic wash.

Sarlacc83 (948) - Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Guest tap at Portland Fat Head’s A: Fluffy white head, cloudy gold color. N: Lemon, grass, lime, orange peel, grapefruit, cracker. T: Nicely sour, light sweetness. M: Good carbonation, very light body. O: A highly drinkable Berliner with a tart twist to it. I like the fruit editions better, but I think this one is highly enjoyable and reminiscent of New Glarus’s version.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a pale straw hue, decent haziness, creamy bright white head sticks atop, good lacing and stick around. Aromas are a bit dank, dusty, dry straw, touches of cobweb and yeasty spice. Dry flaked wheat, a bit of citrusy tart lemon, tart green grapes, earth, mellow yogurt. Initial is lighter end of the fold a bit sweet with touches of grape, some gentle lemon, pear and apple. Some gentle fruit, mellow bread. A touch of yogurt, earth. Middle is a bit sweet, moving into a more yogurty and dry backend, touches of lingering sweet fruit, the sourness isn’t as potent as expected and after the initial punchf alls behind a bit. Finish is a bit lactic, dry, lingering fruit and firm yogurty feel. Ok.

jcartamdg (2100) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2014
pours a translucent yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of sour wheat, lacto, citrus, and white wine. Taste is tart, sour wheat, semi dry white wine and lacto. Solid berliner, perfect base for fruited berliners

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2014

stevoj (2333) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Germans drink this flavored, so it seems wierd to me that the Americans drink it straight. Biting tartness and carbonation are there as needed, soem grain notes with lots of citrusy aroma and taste too. Just wish they’d serve some syrup with it.....

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at 10 Barrel brewpub in Bend. Clear, orange golden pour. Wispy white lacing. Nose is funky, lactic, footy. Taste is tart, big lemon lime acid, tangy, sharper, thick lactic, massive lime juice piles on. Palate is spot on for Berliner. Salty, clean, big yogurt.

On Tap at the Boise BP Clear bright golden with a small fleeting bright white head. Sour apple and lemon aroma and flavor. Very dry and tart but lots of sour flavor. Very good.
