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?

Bottle; pours gold with a thin white head; has a citrus and wheat aroma; taste is a tart citrus with some wheat in the background; finish dry and tart; not bad

floydian1 (978) - 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.

freretoc (716) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 12, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur jaune très très clair, peu de mousse, effervescence très importante, une bière avec une attaque sur le sel et accompagnée d’une pointe d’amertume sur l’endive....

Renobob (641) - Besançon, FRANCE - SEP 12, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Goût plutôt désagréable, salé et très acide. Couleur jaune pale, peu de CO2. Finale sèche. Plutôt mauvais.

Cunningham (4533) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2014
Hazy light yellow colour with a white head. Citric and sour aroma. I do understand why the germans put some sweet syrup in this beer. A bit sour with some wheat and citrus. Light body and rich carbonation.

Benzai (8395) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle shared at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. Cloudy white color, small white head. Smell and taste sourness, sour fruits, slightly plant like. Nice dry finish with some fruits. Decent body and carbonation.

Foffern (1248) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle at restaurant, Berlin. Has a hazy straw colour and a small, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pale malt and some clorine. Sour flavour of some apples, lime and hay. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A sour and fresh beer, nothing more.

Tried it with and without strawberry syrup. Pale yellow, champagne carbonation. Except for the sourness, there is nothing very interesting. I liked it more with syrup...
