ALLOVATE (2839) - Perth, - OCT 12, 2012
On draught @ Sail & Anchor, Fremantle.
Produced up a pastel, opaque yellow with a whispy head of white. Aroma is sour, hairy, Brettanomyces fuelled (?), fruitful but ill defined, acidic and quite lactic. A strange ride between Greek yoghurt and the white of the watermelon. Sour, tart, mildly hairy with supple citrus, and lactic, yoghurt notes. Spritzy and light but yet full in finish. A flavour of cucumber dominates – question mark. Lemon zest lingers amongst the yeasty yoghurt notes. This is strangely addictive stuff though my notes have very little positives. I liked it. It excites the taste buds. I give it two thumbs up and don’t know why!!

KeefOz (1463) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2016
Draught at archive Beer Boutique, West End, Brisbane. Poured a clouded dirty straw colour (looks like a ginger beer) with no head. Carbonation moderate to high and fine. Aroma very subtly of sour citrus and fermented watermelon. Taste of sour citrus and a hint of watermelon sweetness; a bit tart but flavoursome for a low alcohol beer. Quite light body. Smooth, slightly creamy, refreshing and with a fizzy mouthfeel and with a lingering slightly sour citrus finish. OK.

Pale golden yellow with no head to speak of. Slight citrus nose, nothing strong - additional straw and acidic aromas. Very light and refreshing. Watermelon is definitely present, slight citrus flavours and a wheaty/straw backbone. Light and clean to drink, a great refreshing beer.

DrNosha (1474) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2016
Vom Fass. Ganz helles Zitronengelb, dünner Schaum. Sehr saurer Duft mit einem Hauch Melone. Fast schon essigsauer! Frischer saurer Geschmack. Die Wassermelone kommt unreif aromatisch dazu. Spannende Berliner Weisse!

TedE (842) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2015
On tap at Local Taphouse. Distant citric nose. Hazy amber beer with no head. Classic Berliner Weisse with sour watermelon, almost creamy in the mouth. Nice but not outstanding.

fletchfighters (1382) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2015
On Tap at Welcome Hotel Cloudy straw yellow. Minimal head. Good strips of lacing through drinking. Nose is tart, kind of funky lemons and slight hints of watermelon. Very acidic nose. Taste is tart, lots of citrus, not a lot of watermelon but there is some. Crisp, clean and perky acid. Slightly sour but a fun beer and easy to drink and have multiples of. Easily best BW in OZ

ANZUShophunter (253) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2015
On tap at Archive. Pours cloudy and golden with fluffy white head. More tart than I was expecting and didn’t detect much remnant of watermelon. Once I got into it, I found it really quite refreshing.

Muggus69 (2000) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 14, 2015
Draught @ GABS Melbourne 2015 Pale looking cloudy thing Smelss sour, lactic, citrus, watermelon gone bad. Light, very tart/sour, lingering on the palate. Comparisons to sour Warhead candies are apt here - lightly acidic, odd candy (water)melon flavour in there. Bit hard to drink, intense!

Niksko (588) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2015
Cloudy light golden, a little fizzy white head. Nose lots of lactic tartness, slight grain, maybe a hint of aromatic melon. Flavor is really sharply tart, mouth puckering, a little watermelon. Light, medium carb. Really great and refreshing.

Looks like alkaline solution. Aroma is off cheese plus watermelon. Love the taste - watermelon subtlety and strong short sour hit. Good medium carbonation. Nice Berliner!
