2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The label says Sour Wheat ale and that it is. I've had sours before but this one will make you pucker.
A fair review is difficult since I don't drink many of this type. If "really sour" is a good thing then this beer is an A.
I'll always try any type of beer but this one I will respectfully leave on the shelf for someone else to enjoy.

Overall, a pretty basic berliner weiss but for the price, its decent enough for a basic berliner.

Bottle generously sent by IBrew2or3. Cheers, Dave! You know how I lover Berliners! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some lactic tartness, some bready wheat, and some tartness. Flavor is tart citrus, some breadiness, and some yeast. Light in body and nice overall.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a slight white head. Aroma is sourish - but not exactly citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is sour/tart and citric, but not exactly lemon. I think it fits the style well. Quite refreshing. Almost startling.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Anticipated this 22oz bomber so shared with kmweaver (local bottle shop who rarely steers me wrong gave high marks). Highly acedic sourness dominated this cloudy pour. Tart aroma and nose, with some hoisin sauce. That said, itís still one dimensional, not subtle. Mouthfeel was slightly oily, with perception of low carbonation. Call it a sour, but not what I expect in something labeled Berliner Weiss style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home with the wife. Pour is slightly hazy golden orange with a big white head and great lacing. Big wheat, almost skunky, sour grainy, doughy, fruit peel, and sweet aroma. Taste is big sour, lemon lime, vanilla, stale bread, citric acid, sweet malty, salty, and green apples with a huge sour finish. Light body with high carbonation. Way too sour and completely lacking any lactic notes; not a good Berliner.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Farmerís market tasting tick.) 22oz bottle, courtesy of mpersinger. Thanks, Mike! Pours a hazy, dulled golden color; modest off-white head; small bubbles. Some steak/Worcester-sauce notes in the aroma (best I can put my finger on it) in the aroma, particularly when cold; reminds me of the A-1 of my childhood; some toasty wheat, tart lemons, but odd overall. Medium-light body; lightened, loose CO2; soft bitterness and a saline feel at the front; soft citrus tartness; flabby and kind of lackluster.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden, decent sized head with some lace/retention. Aroma is lightly tart with lemon, grass, some yeast. Lighter bodied, but thereís a lot of sweetness here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours semi-clear pale yellow. Aromas of pickle juice and brine after its been used, along with some light lacto. Palate is sour, lemon juice, vegetal, and some yeast. Iím glad they tried to make this style but needs some work.
