3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml Bottle as a gift from Virginia, USA:
I quite enjoyed this one from Dogfish Head, it definitely wasn’t the classic that I was hoping for but it had enough going for it to keep things interesting & enjoyable, particularly because I’ve frequently found Berliner Weisse beers a little too strong & overpowering at times. The beer had a pleasant citrus & peach taste to it that went down relatively easily, particularly after it settled down & opened up some; it’s one well worth trying but I’d probably opt for something else over this one if I ever came across it in future.

Slight peach in the nose. Crisp on the pallet with an earthy peach after taste. Not overly sweet. Overall a very drinkable beer in the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy pale gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is tart white peach, lemon, floury wheat, a little cereal and a hint of sharp cheesiness. Flavor is surprisingly sweet peach up front, then some cereal, floury wheat, sharp lemon, surprisingly strong lactic notes, then stone fruit coming through more tart, and a nice, crisp tart finish. Light body, fairly strong, spritzy carbonation that suit the beer well, dry, slightly chalky, but crisp feel throughout with a decent acidic tingle. Really tasty stuff overall, maybe not too complex behind the tart peach notes, but it all comes together pretty well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy golden with a thin filmy off-white head. Nose is dry white grape, stone fruit, and a lightly tart wheat base. Pretty dry, with some mineral notes. Taste is much the same--peaches, dry white grape, mineral, aspirin, and a bit of lightly soured/tart wheat. Crisp, refreshing, quenching. It’s light and fluffy in the mouth with lots of carbonation. Puzzled as to the low rankings on this one. A fruited berliner for $7.99 a 4-pack that tastes like this? Yes, please. I’ve given DFH my share of crap over the years, but not for this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale golden, thin white lacing. Yeasty, doughy, fruity aroma. Taste is very sweet. Light body, thin texture, very bubbly, light tart & sweet finish. Not my favorite style but good for an American Berliner Weisse.
