3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2007 3rd LCRBM. This will get a re-rate soon, because of a trade with Der Doppelbock, but first impressions are these: yoghurt and, surprisingly, some hops in the aroma. Very modestly sour flavor with yoghurt, fresh cheese and traubenzucker. Citrus. Thin, but complex and delicious.
Re-rate: First rating was fairly accurate. Lychee in the somewhat citric aroma. A slight lemony sourness with tropical fruit added. pineapple, lychee, traubenzucker. Good complexity is this delicious and characterful beer, that is way less sour as the Berliner Weisse from Schultheiss or Kindl.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The 16.9 ounce bottle poured a cloudy light golden yellow colored beverage with a modest sized white fizzy head that was completely gone in 2 minutes and left no lacing on the glass. The aroma was slightly sweet with notes of lemon and grasses. The body was medium-light with lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor starts out sour and stays that way throughout the medium length finish.

Bottle, 50 cl. yesterday @ ratebeer meeting, Kulminator.
Very cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma full off yeast, hops, fruits. Medium body. Taste is good citrus, yeast, hops and a fruity touch. Not so bad.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours beautifully with an ultra-smooth head of foam, like watching a waterfall of cascading white sand. Wheaty and quite sour, but not in a funky sort of way, more sour mash and wheat sour. A nice change-up from the usual suspects. Would try again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thick white creamy head. Man this thing has monster carbonation. Looks like a storm inside the glass. The aroma is sour, wheaty, tart apples, yeasty. Mmmm mmmm. Tastes very tart, like sour apples, has a sour acidic and wheaty, shares definite similarities to other wheat beers but allows itself to stand out in a great way.

Available at the Cellar’s Lex/Larp. pours a super cloudy straw like deep yellow, with a massive creamy white head. Nice biscuity sweet malt as well as some citrus rind and banana. Super tart lemony sweetness with a great creamy body that almost finishes with a wine like acidity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Head quickly collapses on top of a cloudy orange body. Aroma is more malty than tart. You can clearly taste the banana like yeast of Weihenstephan. Theres some sour (sour may be a reach) orange flavor but this doesn’t resemble any berliner weiss I’ve ever had. Just too sewwt for me.
