2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Light, bubbly, almost cider like. Would be completely boring if not for a somewhat interesting tart, lemon finish. Quaffable on a hot summer day. Otherwise not enough going on here to warrant a higher score.

As pale and fizzy as any adjunct lager. The aroma is slightly bitter, and the flavor is really tart. Not bitter, but tart. Like pickle juice and beer mixed together. This was pretty bad.

Hazy pale yellow with a spritzy champagne like head. Light grain aroma, with some lemony notes.<,br>

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.
