2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cloudy, light yellow colour, a head is medium and white. The nose has malts, some sourness, lemon an dry grain. Taste is slightly different than aroma with a strong sourness, lemon, grain and some grass. More malts in the end. Refreshning, strong carbonation, light but not watery. This is the first Berliner Weisse for me. Weird combination of strong sourness and light malts with lemon and without wheat. Interesting and fresh.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Traditional Berlin ’Schankbier’ and the archetype of its style, light wheat beer with lactic acid infusion; yellowish white, loose and quickly dissolving head, colour a ’dirty’ straw yellow, equally misty. Wheaty aroma with soft pale malts, flowery hops, apple, hay and lemon juice. Quite pungent and surprisingly sharp taste, lemony sourish on a soft wheat basis, mineral-like thanks to strong carbonation, fruity accents, sourishness stays till the finish where apart from the citric acidity, a more mellow lactic acidity also appears, further adding to a dry, refreshing and thirst-quenching end. Body fuller than expected because of the strong carbonation - in spite of this basically being a low-alcohol beer. Very interesting tasting experience, very interesting style.

Bottle. Pale hay colour. Wheaty, bland, nose. Some rubbery notes. Light body, slight tart. Bland wheaty flavours. Bit dissapointing on its own. Nice with a dash of syrup.

Sour and tart wheat beer that is not really worth drinking as it is. on the back label recommends brewery also to pouring example. raspberry syrup in. No, I have not learned to drink this sour spray yet, nor added Berliner kindl sauerkirsche. I learn it enough one day. :-)
tastes like stomach acid
provides acid reflux, but ok fresh

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light yellow to straw colour, no head at all. Aroma non appealing, acidic and thats all. In taste purely sour. Could be drinkable and very refreshing if added some kind of fruit flavouring, than its perfect for summer (considering low ABV)

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.33L bottle. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head. Interesting, and different aromas. Apple, wood, dust. True to style, the beer is immediately sour. In fact, that’s about the only flavor there. A little bit of apple sweetness comes in at the end, but this may just be a reaction to the sourness. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, a fairly uni-dimensional beer: it’s just sour. Still, I could see how this could be refreshing in the summer if mixed with some fruit liquour.

Piwo butelkowe. Aromat szmaty i skarpety. Kolor bardzo jasny słomkowy, piany zero, wysycenie duże. W smaku mocno kwaśne i tyle na ten temat. Ciekawostka.

Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy golden colored brew with refreshing sour taste and drink this one pure if you an experienced Geuze drinker, its easier than an Giradin or Cantillon.
