Thanks to kappldav123 for this hard-to-get-in-germany bottle. Pale yellow and unclear in the glass, small fine white head. Sour citrus fruity on the nose. Starts sweetsour and fresh, low flat bitterness. Thinner ending. Not bad for that kind of beer.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Bjorn. I dunno, I found this beer to fall flat, just wasn’t much going on with it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle from ’Dranken Geers’, no bb date. Very pale yellow with a thin, fluffy, quickly diminishing, white head. Sourish-fruity aroma of lemon peel, gooseberry, rhubarb and wheat. Moderately sour, quite fruity taste of lemon peel, rhubarb, gooseberry and wheat, followed by a short, moderately tart, quite dry finish. Thin body, moderately astringent and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Not too sour, enough taste for that abv (although very simple), quite refreshing. Still a bit bland, just average for the style.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml. bottle. No BBF. Extremely pale citrus beer, looks a bit like a cheap macro cider, head is instantly gone,… Nose is heavy rotting lemon, rotting soapy wheat, spoiled, sour, too much,… Taste on the other hand is strangely palatable, briefly fizzy, sour soap, bit watery, strongly mineral oddly, coriander, lemon juice, lingering sour lemon soap mineral finish, bit salty,… Watery, massively chugable, crazily so,… Nose is a bit off-putting,… Taste isn’t optimal but it is crazily drinkable,…. Very refreshing actually, massively drinkable,… Not really a beer geek beer, it isn’t the base tasting but its got massive drinkability, its refreshing,… Quite different from the common everyday slur of USA styled Berliners. Interesting beer, I dig it oddly despite the watery lemon, sour, overly mineral & almost vegetable aftertaste, strangely lightly salty,… Strange stuff. I guess drinkability really counts for something,…

Giallo paglierino, limpidissima con buon perlage. Schiuma sottile frizzantina. Al naso bella acidula con qualche sentore agrumato. Anche al palato molto acidula, note di limone, carbonazione media e corpo medio. Birra di buon livello, rinfrescante.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours straw yellow with a white head. Taste citrus, sour, fruity. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle, from trade with Erzengel. Many thanks! Pours cloudy gold with receding white head. Aroma is tart lemon, giving way to some oxidised cobwebs, leading me to look for the Best Before date, which is nowhere to be found but I assume its past its best. Refreshing, lightly tart Berliner character but the off-putting oxidisation just makes it difficult to finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle share on the 42nd as ’Bayerischer Bahnhof Berliner Style Weisse’, 3.0%. Many thanks to Scopey. Very pale yellow, clear, lightly sparkling, foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is apple peel, papery, some toffee. Body is light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is thin apple, salt water, some citrus peel, cracker malts, soft sourness, a little oxidised. Not great. (2.5)

Straw blond with no head. This one has a weird taste. Soapy. Salty. Really thin and watery texture.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ LIBF’16. Shared with the RB Belgian team.
Couleur dorée, persque transparente, birch sap water, col minime blanc.
Arôme au nez fin de céréales, léger fruité citrique.
Palais est finement suret axé sur un fini grains-céréales, citrique bien là sans pour cela en être trop agressif. Râpeux en fin de bouche, léger malt pils. Trompeur vis-à-vis de l’apparence.
