Lukaduke (2362) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge billowing white foam that rocks out and hangs like a true homie. Nose is fruity wheat, citrus, lots of tart lemon peel and some sweet citrus. Palate is punchy with nice acidity, round cereal grain backbone and some lingering layers of lemon yogurt, pomegranate and a hint of earthy floral hints on the finish. Delicious !

bytemesis (3486) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to JohnGalt1. Pours hazy pink, large puffy off-white head that dissipates fairly slowly leaving lots of residual and healthy clingy lacing. Aroma is floral lemony wheat, nice fruity notes, a bit of dust. Flavor has a bit of initial fruity sweetness, then moves into light plus tart, with a lovely fruity floral bouquet. Light body, high carbonation. Very nice and enjoyable beer.

This poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was of.pomegranite, lemony wheat, and light flowery notes. Flavor was similar, fairly tart but not tongue biting, definite pomegranite. Good stuff overall.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and straw-colored with a tint of rosé and a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is restrained, but floral and lightly spicy. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is acutely sour and mildly floral. Crisp, sour, dry finish. World class beer generously supplied by 50belair!

Bottle @ Pat’s. Thanks to Toby for sending this my way. Hazed pale golden color with excessive carbonation. Huge! white head. Nose is more typical berliner weisse than anything. A lot of straw, lemon, and cracker. Some hints of rhubarb and pomegranate. Slightly grassy. The flavor is super sour. Tons of lemon juice and pomegranate. Mild floral qualities. Banana candy, grass, and a hint of salt. Fairly zesty as it sits for a bit.

Bottle courtesy of JohnGalt1, thanks! Shared this with some friends that had no idea what a Berliner was, or is, and really made an impression. The citrus, floral, and sweet-tart nose sets the tone... good follow through into the taste. Lightly fruity, sweet-tart, and faintly floral. Wheat notes are there, tart, and soft. Pomegranate is nicely used. Very nice overall.

GABF 2014 Rating (Denver, CO). Pours a pinkish ruby red hazy hue, bubbky white head atop is a firmer layer, frothy with a decent stick around. Aromas are sour and fruity, pomegranate, lemon and citrus. A bit of flaked wheat, dry straw, yogurt. Some berry, cranberry and gentle dryness. Initial is lighter end of the fold, firm lactic sourness is punchy, lemony and citric without being overwhelming or acedic. Touches of pomegranate compliment well, a bit juicy, fruit. Faint cranberry, touch of straw, flaked wheat and bread. Lingering fruit, a touch of plum, pomegranate, lemon and nice sour character. Quenching, very drinkable. Tasty stuff and one of the best Berliners I found on the floor.

GABF 2014. Pours a hazy reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Light bodied. Moderately tart and dry. Clean. Tart berries, lemon, flowers, and yogurt. Pretty cool beer.

jredmond (5610) - Manhattan, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a hazy pinkish orange body with white lacing. Aroma is dumpy and fecal right off the bat (or is that just the GABF stadium filled with cropdusters?) Nose offers additional notes of yogurt and a pleasant sour tart character. Mouthfeel is medium to soft; the tart character comes through beautifully on the palate with notes of berries, flowers, cherries and additional fruits. Great berliner.

This beer had a very sweet and rich flavor to it. Not at all what I expected, but still enjoyable.
