Beer guy! Stop taking yourself so serious, our Swill was designed to throw down. German Berliner Weiss with multiple layers of grapefruit - delicious, fun and easy to drink.

I had hopes for this radler. The aroma was very lemony--which is ok, not unpleasant. It was very clear with 1 finger head. The taste however was not so good. I would describe it as rotten lemon flavor with almost no malt taste at all. It is the first beer in my entire life that I have been unable to finish. In fact, the two of us that drank the beer both ended up dumping our bottles down the drain.

Bomber. Strong lemony aroma with slight wheat notes. Pours clear golden colored with a white head that is gone in an eye blink and definitely no lacing. Starts with a lot of lemon citrus with a touch of wheat malt. Finishes smooth with more lemon citrus and acidity. Pretty one dimensional as it mostly tastes like lemonade but I could see its appeal on a hot summer day.

Pours a clear golden color with minimal lacing. Aroma of apple and lemons and yeast. Taste is tart and biscuity. Mouthfeel is crisp with a little bit of syrup. I remember this being a bit more crisp (and much better) on tap. Still refreshing on a hot day, though.

Horrible, absolutely horrible. Undrinkable. I'm a big 10 Barrel fan, but this one falls woefully short of what I'd expect from this brand. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home, courtesy of Niko. Thanks man! Pour is clear golden with a small white head and decent lacing. Biscuity, fruity, somewhat lemony, doughy, yeasty, green apple, and floral aroma. Taste is lemons, doughy, pears, green apples, vanilla - super sweet - and uriney with a medium tart finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not good.

Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. This is an excellent lemon / citrus soda...but not a great beer / radler.

12 oz single bottle from Supermarket Liquors. Clear bronze appearance with active carbonation and a quickly diminishing head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. The flavor adds notes of grapefruit pith and a light tartness. A little syrupy, yet thin mouth experience. Just too sweet for me.

An interesting beer, more shandy or lambic. Pours a super ugly clear yellow. Smells of lemon. Taste is very sweet with white wine and fruit flavors. Had on tap at Bay Area Brew Fest 2015.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a minimal, poorly retained white head, over a clear dark yellow (SRM 4) body......nose is lemon, light dust, hints of malts, no hops......taste is lemon sweet, with layers of lemon, no grapefruit, with light cereal, minimal acid, no hops......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. The Berliner Weiss is totally hidden by the sweet lemon as there is no lactic acidity. Also the label now indicates the use of Natural Lemon Flavor. The Berliner needs more acid to balance the sweetness. The recipe has obviously been redone with the resulting poor outcome. BJCP 6/2/10/3/5

Smells like lemon in an unfragrant Apple juice. Looks like Apple juice too. Tastes like lemony slightly bitter Apple juice. Goes down easy a bit sweet.
