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.

On tap @ the Pine Box, Seattle. Hazy orange gold, low white head. Sweaty, unripened berry aroma and flavour, crisp and wheaty, lightly sour/tart. Very authentic. Quenching. Excellent.

Tap at Tap and Bottle in Tucson. Little head and low carbonation but perfectly tart and overall an excellent representation of the style. Highly recommended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at NW Cap N Taps Bonney Lake. Wafts of wheat and slight barnyard on the nose. Nice cloudy hazed golden pour. Flavors of orange citrus, notes of hay, a tiny barnyard hint, and some lemon. Itís all there for a Berliner, but itís just a bit too clean for me - not used to my Berlinerís being so clean. Nice flavors on the finish though!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an opaque yellow color with a fruity aroma. Taste is bubbly and champagne like with a melon flavor. A very easy drinking beer with little to no bitterness and a quickly disappearing aftertaste. The tart taste is very evident at first and then disappears to a cool refreshing beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber pours with a nearly clear copper to gold body that supports a weak off white head. The mild aroma offers up wheat, lemon, lime tartness and then a mild sort of funky sort of sourness. The taste starts with a balanced mix of lemon and lime tartness and sort of wheat that is faintly malt sweetened. This is light and refreshing but could be less tart and more sour and funky for my taste.
