This is a damn good berliner weisse. Much more controlled than the new hotness out of Florida, the fruit never overwhelms and the acidity stays in check. The fruit is present but not dominant, and there is a great wheatiness to it. Solid all around n

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden straw color with a half finger white foam head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind.
Slightly funky aroma with a faint lactic/cheesy presnce. Kind of bland really with subtle spice, citrus rind and bread. A bit sulfuric as well but the nose is kind of one dimensional and weak.
Medium bodid with some tart, puckering acidity up front that’s countered by citrus fruit and sourdough bread notes. Flavors fall off mid-palate and there is an odd metallic adjunct flavor that overpowers. Doesn’t have traditional characteristics associated with the style. Lacking in bready yeast, fullness in body, lactic funk and wheat beer notes. Kind of bland really with some lactic funk and sour lemon acidity up front.

Runder, deutlich saurer Antrunk. Dabei ist von den Maulbeeren wenig erkennbar. Die Säure steigert sich leicht, süffig, ab dem hinteren Mittelteil mit deutlich bitteren Noten. Säuerlicher, trocken herber Abgang. Gut! 2/11/11/11/5/11

Pours out a sunset pink orange with only the slightest hint of a white head. Sour with a little fruit and a little vinegar in the aroma. Tangy and sour are pretty much the only flavors I get here, pleasant but not very complex. If I try really hard I get a little bit of mulberry in the aftertaste. Effervescent and bubbly with a light watery mouthfeel, although the finish is quite dry. Decent -not great - Berliner.
