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.

Very interesting fruitiness. There’s something there reminiscent of a lambic, but mostly, it’s just the hefe fruit. There’s a green apple and lime tartness in the finish of this one. Not full on sourness, though. Almost a hint of mint in the aroma. Right now, it’s nicely balanced with a good wheat backbone. Very cloudy pour.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow pour, with a quickly diminishing head. Aroma is very spicy, with some banana and coriander in there. Sour taste, nothing crazy, but it’s sour. Citrus, coconut, coriander, zest. Warm, carbonated, and drinkable. It’s good.

Pours out a very light yellow color with a white head on it. Smell is fruity and sour with some lemons in it. Taste is fairly sour, but very refreshing. Probably the most refreshing beer I have ever drank. There isnt alot to say about the beer, but I just know its damn good.

Perfect hazy golden color with a large white head. Wheaty-citrusy aroma with a hint of bread dough. First sip is an explosion of pleasantly sour lemon that’s quite refreshing. Very smooth on the palate with great carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2009 A very drinkable berliner weisse. Still tart and tangy, but not overwhelmingly so. Serious lemon and lime notes, with a delightful effervescence. Top-notch stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2008 Bottle. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a bright white head. Aroma of lemon zest and bananas in milk with sugar on top. A pleasant lemony tartness with better than average carbonation on the palate. A hint of granny smith apple and wheat. Finishes fairly tart. What a great summer refresher.

Pours a hazy light gold with a two finger head of fine white bubbles that diminishes to a thin ring clinging to the sides of the glass. The aroma is of light apple and lemon with a backing of sour wheat. Light to medium bodied with thousands of tiny bubbles enveloping your tongue, it finishes somewhat tart and dry. The first Berliner Weisse that I’ve sampled, I found this beer quite refreshing. The flavor is a nice blend of effervescent wheat malt and citrus notes with a pleasantly tart and moderately dry finish. I’d be curious to see what this is like with the traditional syrup added, but it’s quite tasty in its pure form.
