Bonus beer at BJCP study group, 3 oz pour
Aroma: sour, tad funkiness
Appearance: yellow, pale, white head
Palate: light body, average carbonation
Overall: A really great Berliner Weisse. Textbook example. Light and effervescent. Sour, but not overly done. Nice balance yet complex with some fruit and tartiness. One that I’ll definitely buy, if I see the bottle.

Pint 9 bottle poured a slightly cloudy yellow aroma of straw citrus and funk. Love this beer. Tart and dour one the tongue but not over powering. Nice fruit tartness throughout. Excellent example of the style.

Pours straw with bubbly head. Nose is wheat, lemon, tart. Taste matches, very bubbly, a bit tart, lemon, lot of hefe character. Like a cross between a hefe and a gose. Good.

From the bottle. First pour is clear apple-juice appearance, turning cloudy and straw colored by the second. Aroma is lemony tartness. Great carbonation. Head is fluffy white and fine, with minimal lacing. Taste is tart with lemon balanced by the wheat/malt sweetness. Like a clean lager, light hefeweiss, and mild sour rolled into one. Very crisp, balanced, and delicious.

C’est comme un Hefeweisse mais en version acide. L’acidité est très modéré, petite arôme de banane. Bien!

BOD 7/25/14. Pours a clear golden. Massive World Class head volume, retention and lacing.
Light, but nice, nose of tart lemon, coupled with a touch of vinegar and funk, over biscuit.
Almost light medium body with just a hint of creaminess over a smooth texture. Well carbonated with effervescence from the onset.
The outstanding flavor profile is reasonably intense, not very complex but is perfectly balanced and allows the effervescence to showcase the flavor. It begins with a burst of tart lemon that coats the tongue until the middle where a light biscuit sweetness creeps in underneath. Hops make a slightly bitter appearance as the middle ends. The finish is slightly sour at first, then fades into a slight tart sweetness and finishes dry.
