lethe (177) - New York, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle bought at Ambrosetti in Berlin. Based on the score and multiple ’you can no longer get good Berliner Weisse in Berlin’ statements I thought this was going to be crap. Pour is hazy, thick straw yellow with a wispy foam on top. Nose is a little doughy with some definite lively tartness in back. Palate actually has a fair amount of body and is alive with astringency. Flavor is quite solid with some doughy maltiness up front followed by intense, lasting sourness. This is actually damn good. I’m no sour or Berliner Weisse aficionado but I think this has the style fairly well down, is intensely sour, and is excellent value (I think it was1.5 Euro). This will be a staple for me in Berlin. Who says you can’t get decent Berliner Weisse in Berlin?

Also ich hab nix gutes über dieses Bier gehört, aber trotzdem probier ich es, es ist sauer doch irgendwie gefällt mir das, es ist ohne zweifel gewöhnungsbedürftig aber mir gefällt dieses säuerliche, vor allem da es auch ein wenig fruchtig schmeckt, gut gekühlt ist es ein top Dutstlöscher, also ganz gutes Bier!

a_cross (593) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Pale milky gold, moderate frothy white head; aroma is clean wheat, pepper and tingly fruit; taste is slight sour and sharp tart lemon and lime fruit; it has a certain acidic bite which is not unpleasant; basically it’s more like a liquefied sherbet lemon than a beer - I can’t decide if that’s a good thing or not.

BOTTLE 33CL from Erzengel. Thanks, Gabriel! Look: clear golden with yeast sediment, small white head. Aroma: stale malts, husk. Taste: ultra-dry, zero sweetness, clean lactic acidity, some yeast/dough in the finish.

StilleStorm (633) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
DWGIB; Bottle 0,33 L. Pours light hazy straw with a creamy, moderate lasting, lacing white to off-white head. Shy nose of wheat, yeast, citrus, light honey, green apples and spice. Taste is moderate sweet, sour, citrus and bitter with a lasting, mostly citrus, finish. Body is light, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft to avarage.

Moravius (381) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2014
Flasche (33 cl) aus einem Berliner Edeka-Markt. - Hellgelb, leicht trüb, wenig Schaum. - Eher unangenehmer Geruch: muffig, halb künstlich, halb verrottet, nach Urin. - Im Antrunk sehr trocken aber wenig aromatisch. Muffig-holzig, säuerliche Herbe (oder ist es herbe Säure), Gurkenschale; irgendwie matt und leblos. Trockener Abgang, nicht nennenswert bitter. Zurück bleibt ein recht ekliger, undefinierbarer Nachgeschmack. - Auch (und gerade) wenn man Berliner Weiße kennt und schätzt, ist diese kein großer Genuß; vor allem der üble Geruch schreckt ab. Zum Glück wird gleich nebenan in Potsdam eine weit bessere Weiße gebraut ...

Calisky (443) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2014
Couleur dorée, très légère mousse. Nez très leger (sucré citron). Gout amer-acide du jus de citron a peine pressé, avec un peu d’eau. Pas si mauvais mais pas une bière§.

alexsdad06 (5234) - Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had tart/sour apples and berry notes, pale wheat malt, thin watery mouthfeel, dry, just ok and I probably won’t revisit.

venom666 (296) - Alicante, SPAIN - JUN 29, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Murky yellow color with white short-lasting head. Fruity aroma, with lots of citrus. Very sour taste, seems like a Weissbier with tones of lemon, which is not good at all. It is like a low-alcoholic lemon juice. Dry finish. Very refreshing.
