05.12.2015, tap @ Smelteverket:
Tiny shortlasting head, very light color. Aroma is mild sour-ish, unripe berries, soda powder, minerals, citrus, hay, raw rhubarb, citrus acid. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry, soda powder, hay, sorrel, citrus acid, grass, unripe berries. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and watery mouthfeel. Nice enough, very clean and easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, dark golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind.
Slightly must aroma with a decent balance of musty funk, sweet citrus and bready yeast. Smells a bit tame for the style with faint lactic funk countered by citrus peel, lemon juice, zesty spice, pale malt and sourdough bread.
Medium bodied and thankfully more interesting than the aroma suggests with a nice balance of funk and citric acidity. It’s still light and pretty tame for the style but you can at least pick up the wheat beer characteristics. Only slightly tart with more of a lactic presence than expected countered by sweet citrus, bready yeast and mild spicy. Faint peppery clove flavor countered by hints of lemon juice and sourdough bread. Not too exciting but well balance, clean, crisp and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Berliner Style Weisse has a thick, white, fizzy head, an initially clear, pale, straw appearance, with some lazy bubbles, that turns into a gray-lemon-yellow opaque number, once the caked sediment is swished loose and poured in. Lacing is practically non-existent. The aroma is of sweet, fruity, citrus wedding cake icing and cream. Taste is of tart Halloween semi-soft candy, cream, and sourdough bagel. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Berliner Style Weisse finishes crisp and lemony. RJT

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy straw yellow. Nose of wheat, lemon. Taste follows with light tart sour mash flavors and long wheat finish. Alright but too much wheat for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Nocturnem. Pours very pale with a thin white head. Not my favorite style but it hit the spot at the time. Lemon up front, very tart but the finish was a little dryer making it more drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz (really? looks alot smaller) from the Coop over the weekend for about $5. Poured into my New Belgium snifter.
1" head dies back to just a collar and no lacing atop a very clear wit colored brew... very light...
Aroma is "wheaty" with a little bit of sour.. more grainy than anything.
Flavor puts a couple punctuation marks on the aroma.. soft pale malts are punted through the uprights by the abundant lemon.
I don’t really know what to say about this brew.. reminds me of green tea and lemonade without the sweetness.... drinkability is off the charts especially when it is still hot as can be at 1:00 am in Boise. Drinkable without being watery.. Body is light as expected.. but I am still a huge fan.
