Draft at the Birch. Clear and golden. Pow! Super sweet tart, snapping the taste buds with a zowie. Really nice, interesting interpretation of the style. (#4457, 1/28/2012)

interesting brew. fluffy pillowy head vanishes quickly, minimal to no lacing on the glass. smells and tastes of lemon tartness. definitely a firm tart taste with a lingering lemon finish. my first sour ale. still working my way through it......

Pours hazy yellow into a bowl. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Mild lemony funk aromas. Crisp and tart with upfront lemon meringue and marshmallow turning to a dry, lasting lemon finish.

Atom (2043) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle pours pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma is funky, barnyard, brett, lemon zest, and grass. Taste is very tart lemon and just a touch of pepper and salt, light wheat, with a nice lactic quality. Very nice Berliner Weisse.

SrSilliGose (3327) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 17, 2012
bottle. pours a white wine yellow with a frothy white head that starts big but fades fast. initial aroma is bright lemon zest, creamed wheat, crisp herbs, and dry cracker malts. pleasant bretty sweat and dust cobweb basement funk. awesome. taste has a moderate-heavy lemony acidic bite, with a soft, delicate creamed wheat backing for balance. bone dry. super drinkable, complex, interesting tasty beer. more acidic than most all berliners ive had, and wouldnt mind if the lemon acidity was toned down slightly. really nice clean wet grass funk. super good. at $7 a bottle im still eager to buy a couple more, as this is right up my alley. if this were like $2 a bottle, id buy a truck load. amazing beer- surprised scores arent higher.

Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2012
Draught, Avenue Pub. Cloudy blond. The aroma is a bit spicy with coriander. The taste is spicy with light bretty influence and good spritzy carbonation. Both complex and refreshing, a great experiment.

blankboy (7054) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Draught at Blue Monk, Buffalo. Pours a hazy, very pale gold with a spare diminishing white head. Aroma of lemon tartness mostly followed by some funkiness, grain and herbs. Flavour: Whoa, thats tart! Tons of lemon juice along with some herbal notes, but mostly just tartness. Average bodied. This is an experience alright, great stuff if you like tartness.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Avenue Pub. Looks luminescent canary yellow, little head. Smells overtly like a wit, which is unexpected. All sorts of orange blossom peach basil and coriander seed. Super refreshing. Finishes dry but not at all sour, lactic or Bretty! Much more of a dry wit than a Berliner, although a slight saltiness makes it more gose like. Disappointing that is is not so sour but so refreshing! Lively carbo.

sloth (2756) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Large white head that fades quickly with little lace. Looks like murky lemonade. Nose of yeast, citrus, other fruits. Body is light, seriously tart on the palate, errrrf. Flavors of lemon, light grass, yeast, lil bready, lightly musty. Tart dry finish. May need aging to bring out some bretty notes?? Not sure what its all about? One tart pup! Bottle from statelineliquors.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Bottle. Clear, straw yellow color with a fluffy, and large, white head. Head quickly fades as you can hear the bubbles popping rather loudly. Pretty as a Berliner Weisse is going to get. Just seeing this makes me excited to drink it again. Funk, lemon, large amounts of acidity, and some grainy wheat are present in the aroma. If it was the summer Id likely rate the aroma even higher, but as it is winter in Minnesota this doesnt have quite the same refreshing quality. Still, its fucking great smelling. God this tastes good. Lemon, grains, wheat, lime, and a good dose of lactic acidity are all present here. Fucking incredible for a beer that is only 3% alcohol. Refreshing, crisp and bubbly carbonation, easy to drink, and overall very enjoyable. This would be a perfect summer beer for me.
