Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle: Poured a hazy pale yellow ale with a large pure white bubbly head with strong carbonation but not much retention or lacing. Aroma of funky barnyard notes and sour notes are more dominant then expected. Taste is a complex mix between loads of Brett with some tart and sour notes with a dry finish. Body is about average with strong carbonation. Interesting though maybe a tad too sour to be an everyday type of beer.

Draft. Cloudy straw yellow. Nose is lemon juice, white grape juice, funk. Taste is sour lemon, Brett, fresh water, and light grains. Really crisp and easy drinking.

Bottle (330 ml) 2011. Traded by SlovakSniper, thanks Patrick! Hazy and "milky" pale yellow with a medium quickly diminishing white head and no lacing. Aroma of brettanomyces, wheat, hints of fruits and slight herbal/vegetable notes. Taste is of brettanomyces, wheat sourness, fruits and slight citrus. Mouthfeel is slightly dry. Fizzy. Very good brett beer. A bit thin, but it’s expected from a 3% abv beer. Extremely refreshing and drinkable. I would drink this on a regular basis if it was easily available here.

kramer (5005) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours a cloudy gold body with a few small chunkies churning about. Very fizzy short lived head, looked more like a soda being poured than a beer. The nose is very funky with some slight cheesy notes, a little lactic acid, and some expressive brett. The flavor is quite tart and biting with more sourness up front than I was expecting, it’s much more sour and lactic than the average Berliner. It’s almost bordering on a little too much cheesy flavor, not crazy blue cheese/aged parmesan intense, but not like the good cheesy notes in some Gueuzes. Finishes quite dry with a vinous quality. Lots of very prickly and fizzy carbonation that enhances the sourness. This was OK, but I think that I prefer the regular version, but by just a little.

davey101 (693) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Stubby 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass. Kept the sediment in the glass until the second pour. A - Hazy light yellow/white body. Looks like peach juice. A massive white head forms and instantly fizzles away like a soda. Leaves behind no bubbles or head at all. Lots of rising carbonation. S - Funky in the best way possible. Huge notes of brettanomyces. Dirty socks, wet and moldy hay, lemons, wheat, and a touch of oxidation. No idea how old this is (bottle is dusty) but this aroma is frickin intense! T - Wet hay, lemon juice, wheat, and a touch of oxidized wet cardboard. Liquid funk with a nice mouth puckering sourness. The finish is very dry and spritzy, very seltzer like with lingering lactic acid. O - Probably the best commercial berliner I’ve tried. Since the brett was so prominent I’m pretty sure this has a bit of age on it. Not as drinkable as others of the style though due to the intense sourness.

Beerman6686 (4370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
This poured a hazy straw yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was of lemon juice, brett, spicey yeast, and very light funk. Flavor was fairly tart, definitely the most sour berliner i’ve had, again lemon flavor, grainy, and lots of brett. Very nice stuff!

radagast83 (4676) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2012
On tap at Churchkey’s Night of the Living Ales event. This one poured a clear, plae color with a slightly yellow hue - kind of reminds me of the palest of pale lagers. Aroma was slightly sour, touch of medicinal notes, sour apples. Taste was mild tart funk, with some balanced sweetness. Perhaps a little thin, but hard to really expect otherwise with the ABV being only 3.0%. Very drinkable.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Draft at The Monk’s Kettle in San Francisco. Pours incredibly light straw gold, with a slightly greenish tint. Slightly hazy with a white head. Nose of green apples, lemon, brett, and taste is dry, tart, and slightly funky. Really good, but expensive as shit. Also, what is that rating from SlovakSniper alll about? Awesome.

rederic (2960) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
330ml bottle, slightly hazy pale white hue, with a small bubbly white head, mild bretty, funky yeastiness nose, with some light lactic, lemony sour, wheat malt notes, and with some faint barnyard, sour plain yogurt milkyness accent in the aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a very dry acidic lemon juice, sour green apple, lactic, bretty yeasty, tartness character, with a rhubarb, grapefruit, wheat malt, bread doughy, milky sourness backbone, leading towards a citric, zesty lemony, acidic, sourness finish.
