330 mL bottle at a restaurant in Berlin. Light yellow color with a 1-finger white head. Lightly estery aroma. Flavor was lightly sour with just enough wheat malt backbone to keep it enjoyable for me. Light on the palate and refreshing.

Bottle shared at the RBESG 2014, grand tasting. Pleased to have tried the archetype of the style. Pineapple juice like green / yellow coloured pour with a lasting white head. Aroma is doughy wheat, sharp lemon. Flavour is sharp lemon, grapefruit, puckering sour. Palate is crisp sharp, dry finish. I have no iea as to why people are bagging on this.

Zarkam (442) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2014
330ml bottle from gourmondo.de, hazy pale yellowish colour, medium fizzy mostly vanishing white head, hardly any lacing. Lightly malty aroma of grain and straw with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is initially somewhat sour, getting quickly overwhelmingly so and with a hint of bitterness in the astringent finish. Light body, dry mouthfeel, average carbonation. Almost like drinking carbonated lemon juice, quite refreshing but the overwhelming bitterness might be too much to most without some flavoured syrup added.

Pours fairly flat looking. Smells slightly of wild yeast fermentation. A good base for adding other flavours to but I wouldn't drink it by itself. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rotaman14 (106) - Potsdam, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2014
Pours a very cloudy, pale yellow colour, white head. Citrus on the nose, some grass. Quite a sour beer, but nice and refreshing. Good. Anyway, Berliner Weisse - Tick!

floydian1 (1002) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 25, 2014
330ml bottle in Berlin. Pours a hazy champagne pale yellow with a dense fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Nose has lactic lemony tartness and a light bready malts. Mouthfeel is tingly light and moussy with lemony sour flavours dominating that become quite nice and refreshing as you progress through the glass. Light bodied with a slick texture. An acquired taste for sure but one that I am receptive to.

Un gout aigre et salé vraiment affreux, je me suis demandé si elle n’avait pas mal vielli mais non c’est le goût original. Ah. C’est mon évier qui l’a bu surtout.
