Pours pale straw with a white head. Refreshing, but weak aroma of citrus notes. Some sourness. Enjoyed the sourness, but too weak for me. Not accustomed to this style yet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: cloudy yellow, with a short, fizzy white head shrinking to a thin collar, with minimal lacing. Aroma: bright, tart citrus, a bit of DMS skunk, some peppery grass. Taste: tart and slightly sour citrus, with some black pepper and cracked wheat. Finish: clean and crisp, with a bit of lingering peppery spice and some cracker notes. Notes: Not a huge fan of the berliner weisse style, but this was a well-executed take.

Pretty tasty but not initially as tart as I would like and Finish was pretty bland, but got little better as it went on. Really was a little different sip to sip. Pretty good attempt though.

Bottle bought at Bells. Very pale yellow pour with light light head. Minor aromas. Sour initial taste but finishes yeasty. I would say this was bad but since I got it directly from Kalamazoo it would be doubtful.

Jacksonville, Fl - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Light orange, slightly murky with nary a head. Aroma is pretty much neutral with just a touch of tart lemon. Flavor is rather bland with some tonic water notes, a hint of zesty lemon, some sour sweet tarts. Mouthfeel has a nice spritz to it. Probably true to style - just not my style.
