03.13.05 330ml bottle. Thanks to Jimmack for this surprise! Pale yellow-gold pour is lightly hazed and littered with just a few strand-like bits. Slight head fades quickly to a thin white ring. Funny aromas of raw apples and white grapes but very light. Also a hint of sourness almost as if the glass was near the yellow mustard in the cupboard. Flavor is bitter, tart, and crazily astringent. A major shock to the buds. Acetic as can be. Itís like a bad dry cider that forgot the fruit. I can see why they sweeten the stuff and yet Iím left wildly craving more!? What a massive beer for such a low ABV. FUN FUN FUN!!

On tap at Maders. Mirky, near transparent. Watery and light, like a summer spritzer but lacking carbonation. Glad I was able to try this one out, but Iím even happier that I didnít get it in the 32-oz. boot.

Light blond color; big head, fizzy, disappears quickly. Very light aroma, with some lemon (and light plastic). Watery and sour. Tastes like a weak beer and soda water. Harmless.

lovely citrusy tart sourness. very refreshing and lively. I much prefer straight without the Woodruff or Himbeer syrups.

12oz bottle at Cafe Brucke, served in the funny bowl glass. It had a golden body under a thin white head. Light, airy lemony aroma with white grape juice notes. Light wheatiness in the flavorís base layered with a simplistic lemon citrus and green grape skins. A watery version of the flavor is in the finish. Simple but clean and enjoyable flavor. This stuff would be wonderful on a hot summer day.

Had ~6oz pour at KC Bier Meisters meeting in my NB worthy glass. Clear, golden yellow, white head. Aroma is similar to white wine with notes of apples, pears, and lemon. Taste is tart; lemons, apple, and pears. Interesting flavor! Mouthfeel is puckering and thin. This beer is very, very tart. I can see why they sometimes add fruits syrups to them. My first of the style.

I found the aroma to be quite daunting, and never really got used to it. However, once you quit sniffing and start drinking, you forget about the initial olfactory asault. Sure it was sour...that was the best part of this beer. I am glad I tried this beer, but I donít think it is a style that greatly appeals to me.

Beige yellow with thin head. Hazy. Malty aroma with notes of pears, white bread and cellar. A bit acidic. Somewhat hoppy and fruity. Fruity flavor with notes of bread, mŁsli and cornflakes. Acidic finish.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2006 Figured this deserved a re-rate. Lucky guess. Very tart/sour aroma, mostly lemon-like citrus, some hay/farmhouse mustiness in the background. Flavor hits with a quick sour kick up front, quickly fades to a farmhouse funk, slighty skunk like middle, then dissapears to nothing. Almost no aftertaste, only some sweet wheat characteristics. Very crisp and clean. Mouthfeel is a tad thin, but probably true to style, (only my second berliner). Bet the overall would improve significantly for most re-rates, just MO. 3.6 and thatís with app and palate killing the score.

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