So stood President John F. Kennedy at the steps of the Rathaus Schöneberg, preparing to deliver what would become his iconic speech in front of 450,000 free citizens of West Berlin. "Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is Ich bin ein Berliner!" A half-century later, our country embroiled in bitter political debate over the most trivial of ideals, we present this wood-aged Berliner Weisse as a tribute to the world of Freedom and an olive branch of collaboration to all those who can’t seem to get along. For those who wish to drink it, "Lass’ sie nach San Antonio kommen" – Let them come to San Antonio! Ingredients: Pilsen malt, malted wheat; traditional German hops; top-fermenting yeast; lactobacillus; natural, limestone-filtered, Edwards Aquifer H2O; jelly-filled donuts.

on tap at flying saucer in houston. did they really put jelly-filled doughnuts in this? pale dishwatery appearance with thin lacing; aroma of both soft cheese and cheesecake with hints of furry apple; very crisp with some appleskin and funky cheese lingering; weird and delicious

Can. Pours a hazy gold-yellow with a medium, fine-grained head. Nose is sharp with lemony overtones. More sweetness than some Berliners; definite sourness, quite clean, refreshing. Finish has a little funk to it. I like this; it’s a pretty straight-ahead example of the style.

mcberko (10071) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
12 oz. can, pours a cloudy dull yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of wheat and medium tartness. Flavour is tart, wheaty and lightly funky, with bright citrus, wheat and perfect tartness. There’s a lovely funky funky quality that amplifies the complexity.. Super refreshing and wonderfully balanced. Excellent berliner.

Poured from a 12 ounce can, thanks to Daniel. The aroma is dusty, doughy, soft lemon. The flavor is apple, lemony, doughy. Very refreshing. Very well balanced.

Can - Soapy, creamy wheat and a light citrus tang. Cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Tart soured wheat, citrus and a creamy mouthfeel. Nice clean finish. Quite nice.

kidmartinek (3979) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Pale cloudy yellow. Looks like a hefe. White fizzy head lasts a long time. Papery aroma. Light tart flavor with a surprising light malt finish a hint or sharpness in the aftertaste. A little bit of corn, sweetness peeks in here and there.

Tap at cottonwood. Pours a hazy yellow, little head. Aroma is gross. Vomit, trash, vinegar, fermenting bodily fluids. Wtf. Taste is slightly better, some wheat, light acidity, there is an always present vomit taste. Like bile. Not happy about it. Thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. Would not drink again.

JBPortland (1257) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 20, 2015
12oz can pours cloudy pale golden straw yellow with a finger of head. Right off the bat the nose on this is gross, rotten vomit, stale grain, old cheese and some traces of diacetyl. Tatse isn’t quite as bad with some decent lemony grain and cereal flakes, still get the weird off putting notes of butryic acid and butter though, just to a lesser extent. Not very tart at all for a berliner. Finishes with low acidity, some soggy flaked grain and light lacto lemon. Dumped.

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2015
12 oz. Can purchased at Jester King. Correct gold color with active carbonation level. Correct aroma of lemons, wheat, straw. Lactic acid is mild in both aroma and flavor. The wheat base supports this very well, straw and lemons on the finish. Very weak sourness in the back of the sip. Very approachable and easy to drink, I drained the 12 oz with speed.

Poured a light golden color with aromas of light wheat, some lactose aromas aromas touch of citrus. Flavors are light tart wheat with some citrus and a touch of funk. Solid overall thanks DJ for the bottle. Great beer to enjoy in the heat.
