Light beer with a very fine head and almost no aroma. Very tart taste, like a champagne.

Very hazy yellow-orange, fine white cover. Aroma is light wheat, faint sour, lemon. Taste is just a mild lemon citric tartness, mostly wheaty, I didnít think it was very good as a Berliner Weisse, not tart enough, but as a light drinking summer wheat beer, it was fine.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Draft. Pours hazy yellow/white with a thin head. Slightly tart, finishes watery. Rather bland.
Re-rate: This beer has slowly become a staple in my household. Itís really easy to drink, refreshing, pairs nicely with warm nights, friends, cigarettes, ideally all together. It doesnít really stand out in any way but as a tart session beer for less than $10/sixer, I have to say, Bells really nailed it.

I think for a Berliner Weisse, that this is a really strong offering! The first time I had it, I was told it was a witbier and I was really confused. Lemon, citrus, lactic tartness, balanced, drinkable, refreshing. I really love this beer!!

Iím not sure what all the hub-bub was about with this beer. It was lemony and pretty weak. I was told by the bartender I absolutely had to have this beer. Had to! Trust me when I say, no you donít. If it wasnít for the the Bells name, I would have guessed it was a smaller brewery of no account.

on tap in a pint glass... I think this is the perfect hybrid between a wheat and a berliner. It pours a very hazy and cloudy yellowish orange. A good head to boot. A lightly tart wheat beer. very refreshing, a great summer session brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On-tap this afternoon at Mad Mex North Hills
A-Looks good-in check for a Berliner. Nice very uniformly hazy straw yellow body that is served with a 1/2 finger foamy white head. Head has really good retention and lacing is left most of the way down the glass.
S-Nose is pretty mild and quite grainy. A grainy wheat presence is the main character with a hint of sour overtones.
T-Flavor is only mild to moderate in strength and offers a big dose of wheat flavor and a hint of bready yeast upfront. The wheat flavor is quite grainy and the main character. A hint of sour overtones come through for the finish but nothing big.
P- Medium to high carbonation and light, drinkable, slightly grainy body.
O- This is a decent beer overall. Not as sour as most Berliners and a lot more wheat beer forward. Was happy to see this on the menu at Mad Mex today- you donít see this style around too often. I think there should be more examples!
Serving type: on-tap

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Finchís. Pours a thin, fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Hazy, light yellow body. Aroma is of sweet, bready pils with a light tanginess. Light, grainy cereal malt flavor with some sweet honeyish notes. No real sourness to speak of. Light bodied, highly carbonated and sweet with no bitterness. Overall a decent summer beer, but nothing special and definitely not a Berliner WeiŖe.

at Tylerís Apex. Good aroma, sour, citrus, lemonish. Little biscuity. Pale golden yellow color. Ok head, minor lace. Bitter sour flavor. Lite body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, sour dry finish. Nice sour streak about it, very drinkable, I enjoyed more than score indicates.
