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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of cream and and pineapple, some cheese and DMS. Milky yellow color, very thick white head, no lacing. Very sour lemon taste, with cardboard and rice at midpalate. The lemon grass finish sets it off nicely. I’m still a novice with this style, but I do enjoy sour beers. This one just seems one dimensional, but perhaps that is the style. I like it, but it doesn’t excite me that much.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a hazy yellow colour with a very active fizzy white head. Head instantly diminished to a ring. Aroma presents funky yeast, light fruit, citrus and spices. Initial taste is tangy, a salty wheat makes up the background character of this brew. Moving into a lightly spiced citrus. Palate duration cuts short and is slightly dry. A light body, but refreshing and enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer pours a cloudy orange, it almost looks like a grapefruit juice considering it has that nice citric and bitter aroma to it. The head foams up really nice and as fast as it foams up it fades to nothing. The initial taste is very salty and tangy but that fades as quick as the beer goes down your throat. the after taste on the palate is very smooth and toffee like with mild hints of melon.
