3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy light straw color with a big bubbled, somewhat fluffy white head that diminishes somewhat quickly in the bowl. Hugh wheat and light banana aromas. A light lactic scent, but not that strong compared to some of the other Berliners. Full wheat sweetness that does not last long with the tartness. Some white grapes and and lemon oil wander about in the middle. Dry tart finish that has some tart cherries and slight return of wheat. Respectable. Wouldn’t mild trying with woodruff or raspberry syrup.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a pale, cloudy gold with quickly receding white head. Aroma of lactic sourness, citrus, and yeastiness. Upon tasting, the sourness immediately comes into play, followed by lemon tartness. Then it beautifully segues into typical wheat/yeasty flavors. The finish is pretty yeasty as well. At one point after having taken a sip, I could still taste lemons in the corner of my mouth. Pretty awesome. Lively/carbonated mouthfeel. Definitely an awesome session brew. I should stock up on more of these as soon as I finish all the other stuff in the fridge.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy golden but very bright. Huge white head, fades, returns with a quick swirl. Lactis sourness up front, lemongrass, and faint yeasty wheat character. Flavor pretty much on par with aroma. Lactic tartness, sour lemon, light yeasty/wheat. Very soft mouthfeel, clean. Can see where people might mistake this for watered down. Very easy drink. Perfect summer session.

500ml. bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Cloudy pale yellow color with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of wheat malt, citrus, light clove and banana. Fruity flavor of biscuity malts with a light lactic tartness. Some citrus and clove as well.
Nice clean refreshing beer, I just wished it was more tart like Kindl.

Bottle from Capone’s sampled with Mad_Indian. Pours hazy yellow /pale golden with a decent size white head. Aroma of wheat, tart fruit, and citrus. The flavor is tart, citrus, fruit, wheat, refreshing. I don’t really care for the style, but this brew was great for a berliner weisse.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml Bottle, poured in to my Orval glass. Hay yellow with a big, fizzy white head. A soft wheaty aroma, with plenty of fruity citrus acidic notes. To me, that flavor is not much different that your average weissbier, then you get to the ultra refreshing tartness. Super dry finish. Really glad I picked this one up today.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m pretty sure that this is my first Berliner Weisse, at least one that I’m sitting down and trying to enjoy. Very cloudy, dark golden colored, slight head around the sides of the glass. Aroma is very wheaty and lemony. Full aroma, and very pleasant. The flavor is quite good - full wheatiness and refreshing lemony tartness. Crisp. Tasty. Nice.
