4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Freeman BBQ. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aromas of light fruitiness, light lemon juice. The taste is very mild, as it should be. Light on the sourness just a touch in the finish. It could bump up the sourness just a tad but I liked it right there. I would like some more grainy taste at the finish. Still solid showing.

Tap at the brewery. Pours clear light gold, fast dissipating head. Aroma is tart, wheat, grain, faint citrus. Taste is nice light pils base, with a bit of tartness, grass and grain. Light refreshing body. Good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is lemon, funk, and dough. Thin mouth, lemon, dough, very tart, clean, crushable, look forward to this release every year, such an amazing berliner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
GABF 2013. Pours a touch hazy light yellow appearance with a white head. A bit tangy, light barnyard, lemony aroma. Slightly watery but overall pretty tasty flavor with some lactic, vanilla, lemon, and a touch herbal notes. A touch watery but kind of chill.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 I have yet to taste a Berliner weiss that is quite up to the first one I had (that was an actual one from Berlin), but dang if this does not come closest. Think it has been developing and actually improving, but alas believe last time I was at the brewery it had just run out. Good job, buckos!
Damn this is an excellent choice for a day that was way too fucking hot. SO much flavor packed into what is now listed as 3.0%
Gotta see if I can get a growler fill of this somewhere in town...

This was my first experience with a Berliner Weisse and I am very early to the sour genre. That said, i really enjoyed exploring this beer with Tre Miner, the Certified Cicerone at Craft Pride in Austin.

Pale yellow with minimal white head. Lemony and lactic aroma. Likewise with the taste . Smooth sourness though.
