UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 33 cL bottle. I can't say I liked what I found. I thought perhaps this bottle had gone south as it was freshness dated for 4/02, but I see by the deScription that the style is exactly as I experienced. Thin head dwindles to nothing over a pale yellow beer. Spritzy, with a very sour lemonade and grapefruit taste. Sourness overcomes any malts or hop impression. It was worth it to experience the style, but this won't become one of my favorites. I have a second bottle that I'll try with a syrup (or maybe a peach schnapps or Frango liquer?).
Re-sampled, Nov. 15, '03. This time I was prepared with a bottle of raspberry flavoring syrup. Just a little splash made it nice and smooth. Though pinkish, of course, the tartness remaining gave it an edge over most raspberry beers. Probably might even be well matched with a 7-up.

Has none of the complexity of the lambrics being lighter and weaker. Nothing at all special. Really made to go with some syrup. Still it aint half bad and makes a decent cheap sour beer. Is a bit thin and watery in the end though.

Bardzo przyjemne. Delikatne, kwaśne, orzeźwiające i o solidnym nasyceniu. Piwo wspaniale pije się przy jedzeniu - pobudza apetyt, a nie zostawia intensywnego posmaku na języku.

Più che una birra, una bevanda gasata estiva. Acidula, sentori di frutta, più adatta a un caldo dopocena o anche un aperitivo.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ van Rooij, Culemborg. My first Berliner weisse and boy it’s really sour. Hazy light yellow with a white head. Sour wheat aroma. Sour taste with a thin watery slightly wheaty finish. Nice to try again but this will not be a regular for me.
