EdKing (2010) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from the brewery. Colour is hazy quite bright amber, initial white head which dissipates very quickly to nothing. Nose is very nice. First it’s lemon sherbert, sugar, and then the sour dominates. Urine, lime, funky, farmyard, citrous, barnyard, some freshly cut grass. Taste is nice and fruity and full flavoured for a BW. Lemon, lime, barnyard and funkiness, urine, sour and tart, tangy mustiness. There’s some of the freshly cut grass too. One of the better BW I’ve had. Finish is tangy, fruity and a little acidic.

imdownthepub (10753) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Bottled, 330ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Cloudy greenish gold with white head. There is a sharp, lemony nose, which is pleasant but on drinking the sourness is a little over the top for me, bitter unripe grape notes, tart lime. A challenge to my palate.

ElManana (543) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Pours pale yellow, big head which fades quickly. Aroma of yeast, bread, melon. Very high oxidation, starts of sour, grassy, earth notes which goes into taste of bread, yeast. Good Berliner although it’s not my style.

solidfunk (4539) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Strong raspberry element here. Some sense of raspberry seeds which is really nice. Tart finish. I really like this one - very drinkable and well-balanced, which is sometimes rare for a Berliner weisse. Tap at Churchkey.
