3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Lemons and lactobacillus coalesce before crunchy wheat asserts itself in this lean and tart Berliner Weisse.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy pale beige.
-Carbonation could be more intense.
-Spicy (cinnamon-like?) phenols are tasted.
-Tartness is prominent, maybe more so than the average Berliner Weisse.
On tap at the brewery taproom.

Hazy yellow color with lemony, tart nose. Taste follows. Clean finish. Don’t know the style well so can’t say it compares.

Draft. Hazy light yellow. Minimal head. Nose of apples and slightly lactic. Flavor is slightly sharp and acidic. Falls flat immediately. Refreshing and quenching but not as sour as I’d like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy light golden color. Big wheat aroma up front and then the tart/lactic sourness follows. The flavor follows suit with the aroma. Big wheat flavor and a nice lactic sour finish. Very nice Berliner, a great example of the style.
