3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 500ml, Bottle conditioned, courtesy of Der Doppelbock (Sebastian). Cloudy gold with short lasting head. High in lactic acid flavours, it is sharp, lemony and tangy with a lingering sourness. Soft fruit and acidic apples also noted in the flavour a challenging and interesting beer. Good stuff.

Pale yellow with a cloudy head. Aroma is wheaty with bubble gum and banana only with some sourness in there as well. Flavor is tart and creamy. This is a good representative of the style.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden/straw color with a med-sized bubbly white head. Aroma is yeast, straw, sourness and some other funkiness. Somewhat dry and light, but very refreshing. Could probably drink this all day. Some fruity flavors, with some yeast and a little spice. Very glad I got to try this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours out a hazy pale yellow with a thick white head that dissapears almost instantly after foaming up. Smells slightly tart and sweet. Funny, this reminded me very much of the smell of apple juice. Yeast is also present. Tastes is tart and very acidic. Wheat is present but an apple flavor is still comming through. Very crisp and refreshing beer, one of the most refreshing I have ever had. I liked this one a lot, and excellent blend of fruity flavor and tart dryness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500ml). Cloudy yellow, huge foamy white lasting head. Sour fruit, yeast, funky spice, I get the lactic character. Oh, my that’s nice - light wheat beer, with mildly acidic fruit (strawberry!), and lemon sourness and yeast .... really pleasant. Light body, carbonation and acidity, quick finish, but while it’s on your palate it’s a nice ride.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pours a hazy golden with a fizzy fading head. (When you swirl the bottle and disturb the sediment it gets even more murky and cloudy) Tart, earthy aroma. Light hint of barnyard, sharp quality wheat malt, lactic notes, sour apple skins, and yeast. Lively, high volume carbonation. Crisp body with a nice wheat malt presence. Tart fruity notes of sour apple skins and a slightly vinous quality. Lactic hints, and light yeasty notes. This is a great thirst quencher and extremely well crafted example of the style.

quite nice, but not nearly as tart as i expected...but this is my first example of a true berliner weisse. ultimately to me, this tasted like a nice pilsner with some lactic tartness to it. could drink this everyday, though not a mindblower

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5L bottle. Unfiltered and yellow in color, white fizzy head. Aroma of peach, orange, and green banana. Flavor is of tartness and malt. Slight cereal flavors in the finish. A bit strong for this style but still refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured a clear pale golden color. Head was fluffy and white with good retention and lacing. Aroma was a combination of banana, orange, marmelade, peach, and sweaty arm pit. Tart acidity on the tongue with carbonation on the prickly end of the spectrum. Tasted of banana, lemon zest, and rhubarb with a pleasant cereal grain aftertaste.
