3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is my favorite Berliner beer. While the alcohol content is very low, the overall flavor and taste are so unique that I always look forward to buying one of these during my trip to the beer shop. I like the sour taste Of this beer. Perfect for an early spring Night with a a big bowl of salty boiled peanuts!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 50CL from . Thanks, !
Look: dirty pale golden, almost beige body, small white head.
Aroma: wheat bran, yeast, light fruit, white grapes, some malt sweetness even.
Taste: quite aggressive prickly lactic sourness, bran/husk, light body.
Light and refreshing but a bit too „dirty”.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle as shown thanks to Rainer. Pours a cloudy pink beige with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong lacto, oak, horse blanket. Thin mouthfeel and warhead like sourness with strong tart finish. SO sour, really enjoyed this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz bottle poured out into a tulip. No syrup around, don’t even know what a woodruff is. It pours out a hazy yellow/white with a big white head that quickly fades away. Tangy aroma halfway between a wheat beer and a run of the mill German lager. Flavor obviously dominated by the sour lactic flavor, reminds me of the juice from those plastic squeeze lemons. There’s a little funk hiding in both the flavor and the aroma. The light and fizzy mouthfeel enhances the flavor. Good and fairly easy to find representation of the style, I appreciate being able to find a sour that’s not in a giant 750 ml bottle! That said it’s pretty pricey for what you get.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 My first "real" Berliner Weisse. Nice, sour, crisp, bubble gum flavour, lime and bakery by-products. Thick on the palate. Lovely with raspberry cordial.

Bottle. Pours golden yellow, fairly hazy, likely due to recent transport. White head, settles quickly with no lace. Aroma is wheat, mildly tart, citrus. Flavor is orange, lemon, mildly tart, sugary sweet, hint of orange soda, with a mild, sweet wheat finish. Light and mild for the style, quaffable and pleasant.

Fizzy lemony tart and lightly sweet. Nothing remarkable but something that i wish i could get a 12 pack of on a hot summer day. Refreshing crisp and good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330 ml). Clear yellow/golden with a small mostly lasting white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is of hay, lemon, light tartness, light yogurt and wheat. Taste is slightly tart with lemony notes, yogurt and light hay. Light body. Fizzy carbonation. Crisp. This one isn’t complex by any mean, but it’s heavily drinkable and quite refreshing. I would drink this on a regular basis.

12oz bottle pours semi-clear pale yellow with small head. Nose is tart lemon juice, grains, wheat. Taste is cereal grains and acidic tart lemon, citrus, lacto, salt, almost closer to a gose. Finish is salty tart lemon with lasting cereal, however there is a faint unpleasant bile and moldy cheese note as the finish trails off.
