Oh, not my style guys. This was sour, and that is all I can say. Sour and looked like ginger ale.

Bottle at Andyís, served in a proper Kindl Weiss glass. Golden, with a white head, and almost clear. A refreshing soured banana and fruit aroma. Flavor is crisp light and refreshing. Slightly sour. Dry, tart, and thirst quenching. A little fizzy and pop like. This is a fantastic substitute for soft drinks. Maybe kids should be given this instead of Coke, eh?

first berliner weisse, out of the bottle. salty malty aroma, smells more like ocean water than beer. very acidic and salty flavor, nearly fishy but definitely not bad. what the hell kind of beer is this anyway? not much wheat character, but i can detect some hefeweizen-ness in there. definitely not a style for the faint-of-heart.

This is my first berliner weisse, and i donít know about that syrup thing, so iíll just try it by itself. Pours a orange/yellow with a quick falling white head, very light beer. Aroma is lightly wheaty, more dominating aroma of honey and slight cider apple or pear. It almost seems like this beer will start with some sweetness, but none what so ever. Very mild sourness, very refreshing. More of the apple tastes comes through, at the front of the palate while a wheatiness stays back with the sourness and into the aftertaste. The honey from the nose had me hoping for more sweetness and body to this brew, but it was much lighter and more of a refreshing brew. This really wasnít extremely sour as the discription above states, very moderate sourness in fact.

Great glass! A new style for me. Clear golden colour with a large thin white head. Aroma is wheaty and so is the flavour with a unique sourness. An interesting style.

This is strange stuff...Weird rotting grass aroma, fizzy-fizzy body, rocky head that disappears as quickly as it came, and the sourest-mouth-puckering flavor (tasted straight- no fruit or herbal additions) Kind of a lot of effort to finish, but by the end, I was thinking about trying another one of this type.

My first berliner weisse. Clear deep yellow-golden colour. Thick white, but dissipating head. Light wheaty aroma with a prominent lactic character. Flavour is slightly tart, but has a yogourty edge. Palate seems a bit cardboardy however. Refreshing beer. Iíll definitely be wanting more of these.

Interesting beer. I had this one with an accompaniment of Rasberry syrup which livened the beer up quite nicely. Very sour and watery in taste but worth a try for anyone wanting to try something different.

Although I have little to compare it to -- this being my first Berliner Weisse -- I found this beer very enjoyable. Nice and sour, acidic, and some light spiciness. Very refreshing. I will admit, I enjoyed it even more with the accompanying cherry syrup. But I could drink this happily with or without.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2010 I really enjoyed this beer(Thanks Dortmunder) the sourness was a bit of a shock at first, but it really grew on me, light flavorful, large, quickly dissapaiting head. I will have this beer again!
