COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very crisp, tart wheat beer typically brewed in Berlin and perfect for Spring’s impending warm weather. Notes of fresh tropical fruit and citrus zest up front with light bread-like malt notes in the finish. Effervescent and light in body with a snappy finish, to be enjoyed on its own or with a shot of one of our house made woodruff or raspberry syrups. OG 1.038, FG 1.005, ABV 4.2%, pH 3.5

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2009
(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy straw body with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, musty basement, delicate lemon, and grain. Flavor of grain, nicely tart lemon, wheat, and light grass with a dry finish.

auerbrau (3152) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 10, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Straight, no syrup. Pours a opalescent translucent pale golden, with a crisp, clean white rim. Unique tart green olive aroma. Distinctly olive-like, thatís for sure. Flavor develops with kalamata olive bread. Very bready, doughy, and yeasty. Some distinctly medicinal band-aid character right up front. Foamy, seltzer quality. Acetate finish. Not nearly tart enough for the style. Not much unboiled malt character. Weak. Slightly stinging in the nose. This is a very poor rendition. Hard to finish.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2009
UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 On tap at CBC (250909). Authentic looking hazy straw/pale yellow colour. Aroma of sour mash dough. Just a whiff of something a bit chemical like drain cleaner too. Fairly sharp and lemony on the palate. Slight astringence on the finish. I know this is a rare style and all, and of interest for that reason, but I find it tough to get much more from Berliner Weisses other than a sharp, tart, refreshing character. I’m not sure there is really supposed to be much more than that. So, although this is certainly pretty close to style, it didn’t really hit the spot for me. Might have been different, of course, if it was my first beer of the day and I wanted something thirst quenching to knock back.

TURDFERGUSON (3943) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Draught at CBC. Hazy straw with a small ring of white lace. Nose of wheat, some very light tartness, olives. Nice, slightly tart flavor. Refreshing if nothing else.

FlyingTaco (112) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 9, 2009
Originally reviewed 8/19/2008... Clean and crisp honey-lemon-pineapple color. Thin soap sud head goes quickly. Mild scent with even a little Pilsener texture, some yeast/wheat electricity and slight citrus sourness. The sour texture here is enjoyable. Strong wheat backbone with good yeast component. Crisp and fresh. Carbonation makes this nice and light - sour citrus pucker on back of palate expands to whole mouth on finish. Tart and tingly. Very drinkable and enjoyable - clean and good for hot summer day.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear gold color. The head was white with good retention and lacing. Not much aroma other than whiffs of apple and caramel. Light bodied with only minimal acidity up front that faded quickly. Dryish finish with tart apple and pale malt flavors. Refreshing, but not the best Iíve had as far as the style goes.
