2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A 12 fl oz bottle with a packaged date of 6th March 2015 and poured into a short stemmed wine glass. It poured a very cloudy light straw yellow colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly to nothing leaving minimal spotty lacing. Aromas are a tangy, lemon honey mix with a hint of apple and pear. Tastes a lightly sour lemon and sour green apple juice. Light bodied with high carbonation. Overall, this was a decent enough Berliner Weisse. It is easy to drink and refreshing but not my favourite for the style.

Bottle. Kind of cloudy, gold in color with a medium, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is a light tart fruit smell. The taste is lightly tart with a fruity finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pale gold with short-lived head. Mildly tart taste, along with some malt and wheat. Uninspiring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: faint aroma of cherry but not much else; Appearance: straw colored with lots of haze; minimal head; Taste: lager like with very faint tartness; not much personality at all; disappointing; Palate: light body with fizzy carbonation; short slightly tart finish; Overall: I think they were going for subtlety and ended up with a pretty boring beer. Would not buy again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy yellow with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus, grass, and bready notes. The flavor is not sour at all with some lemon and spices in the flavor. More like a pilsner than a berliner. Overall this is a decent summer session beer and not much else.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), with notes of sour apple, lemon zest.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Not bad, not great, kinda plain...starchy malt and sour fruit, as you might expect from the style. Sour but not overboard, nice quaffing balance, and it helps that there’s almost no bitterness to compete with that. It doesn’t say much, but it’s a pleasant version.

Part of a sampler at Jet Rock at PHL terminal B. Hazy light yellow with retained, pure white head. Wheaty malt, and a lemon scent and taste in the background. Very thin mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap. Hazy golden with a ring of foam. Mild nose of wheat, dry grass and caramel. Tastes of stone fruit, earthy dried grass and a touch of sourish sweat. Light body has a sessionable balance and a smooth medium carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Has a moderate to heavy haze, medium straw yellow hue with darker breaks on the edge. Not much on the thin white head as it seems little under carbonated for what I prefer. Cereal notes dominate the faint citrus quality I usually enjoy with this style. Nice acidity and tartness still come through with lemon notes but lean more on the grassy and herbal side. Different but still enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Good wheat aroma with lemony citrus notes and a hint of funk. Pours cloudy golden colored with a thin white head with no retention or lacing. Starts with wheat malt flavors with a bit of lemon citrus. Finishes smooth with just a touch of sour funkiness to go with the lemony citrus acidity. Good, refreshing beer with a very high drinkability.
