4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle, bottled 28-8-13 : Hazy straw color with about 3 inches of off white foam, slow to settle. Aromas of lemon, banana, light yeastiness, barnyard funk. Gentle tart/sour flavor with slightly syrupy banana, a bit acidic.The carbonation is fairly lively, it’s got a nice sparkling quality. Super yummy. Finishes sour with just a touch of bread crust bitterness I read that traditionally raspberry syrup was added to the Berliner Weisse. I drank half of it straight, then since it’s Thanksgiving weekend, I muddled it with some leftover homemade cranberry sauce. Fantastic.

Very happy to get my hands on a traditional Berliner weisse. Aroma is mild, hint of lemon, hint of sour. Pour slightly cloudy with soft white head. Taste is tart, dry, mildly citrusy. No hops. Finish is dry and refreshing.

I love this beer, it is simple yet full of flavor. The open air fermenting really lends to a unique and tasty beer, that leans to a sour but is not overpowered with unnecessary fruits or off flavors. A true blast from the past!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas of wheat with hints of citrus sourness waft up from a cloudy straw pour which provides no head or lacing. Tart/sour flavors on the palate with notes of wheat, citrus, and fruit. A welcomed bit of barnyard/funk in the aftertaste. Light body and crisp carbonation. Fizzy mouthfeel. Overall, a good example of a Berliner Weisse; pleasingly tart and extremely refreshing. Would buy again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde pâle trouble, belle mousse blanche bulleuse, effervescence à faire palir un efferalgan. Nez de citron, malt, blé, iode. Bouche légèrement acide, iodée et salée. Saveur sur le citron et le froment. Peu de corps. Bonne carbo. Très bonne bière de soif.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into lager glass as I don’t own a bowl glass. It’s yellow with haze and a big white head that dissipates quickly to the sides of glass. Starts bubbley and seems to go flat but there is plenty of co2 here. It is light bodied. Aroma is sour lemon and wheat. Taste is lemon, wheat, hay. Sour note but in no way overwhelming turns a bit sweet in the early sip with a lemon aftertaste. Sharp and crisp and a refresher for sure. Enjoyed but I wish I had it on a hot summer day as opposed to this cool fall day but very nice.
