Extremely sour, seems to soak up any accompanying flavor. This was served with a lemon wedge which complemented the flavor to the point of replacing the flavor. An adventurous beer for a person used to taking chances. I didnít like this particular variety.

Cloudy straw color with good head and lacing. Grat sour doug bread nose. Sour blue cheese flavor with some floral notes.. Silky texture. Very drinkable with or without syrup. Some people donít get it, but I really like sour beers.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 This is my first experience with a Berliner weisse, so I wasnít sure what to expect. It poured a pale yellow color with a fizzy head (soon dissipated) and lots of lively carbonation. Itís got a sour, earthy aroma and a very sour flavor with a grassy, grainy wheatiness. Tart dry finish. Iíd be interested in trying others of this style.

footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2004
bottled 330 ml. Light yellow. Sweet/Sour aroma. Sour Dry lip puckering taste. Appropriate light bodied. Dry finish. Good Berliner weisse. Címon guys every beer doesnít need to be a belgian strong ale. Good when mixed with Bar Harbor Brewing Blueberry soda syrup . A nice sweet/sour taste. Great summer beer. Multiple tastings.

Light gold and well carbonated with a slightly floral/grapefruity aroma. Very sour citrus flavor with a lactic note and a short finish. Light mouthfeel.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Very light golden color with amazing lacing. Strange and unique aroma: sour, slightly grainy, a little funky, pretty subtle. The flavor is extremely sour with a noticable wheat presence. Refreshing, complex, but not highly appealing to me. Effervescent and light on the tongue. Watery. Would be enjoyable on a hot summer day.

After choking down a Schultheiss Berliner Weiss a couple of years ago while in Germany, I never thought Iíd find myself drinking another beer in this style. But, it was featured in the Belgian beer tasting event I attended last night (yeah, I know; whatís a German beer doing at a Belgian beer tasting?). Anyway, this wasnít nearly as overtly tart as the Schultheiss. But, strangely enough, I found myself not as put off by the style as I was the first time. I see this style as being somewhat related to non-fruit lambics, which have their time and place. Lager aroma. Lively visible carbonation. Pale yellow with a white head and excellent lace. Sour mouthfeel with an aftertaste not unlike MGD. Not as god awful and I suspected. Still not much of a drinker.

Reminds me of spakling water. A bit of sour citrus in the aftertaste. It has a pretty mild carbonated flavour with a tart finsih. Iím pretty impartial to this beer, I can understand why most wouldnít like it, but it was very interesting to try.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2007 Aroma of citrus and hops. Smells like a high quality pilsner, and looks like one as well. There are three flavors. The first is very light citrus. The next is sour, and the finish is a heavy with yeast. Not nearly as sour as I expected, and not even close to a gueze. Aftertaste of baguette. Light palate. I should be drinking this on a hot day in the summer, but at the price of this beer I wonít buy it again.
