3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour out of bottle, very hazy yellow pour with white head that dissipates fast, aroma brought notes of slight corn, nice lemon, lemon zest with hints of vanilla, slight cracker notes in there, touch of oak. Taste is a mix of lemon, grass, some biscuit, hints of vanilla, corn in there as well, finishing fairly tart, slightly funky.

Bottle thanks to Bobby. Pours a light straw with small head. Aromas of lime juice, margarita, lemon peel, and some barrel funk. Palate is limes, minimal wheat, medium tartness. Tart finish, quite nice.

Bottle thanks to my main man Josh. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Sour nose with a hint of burnt rubber. Tart and sour with lemon, lime, and light woody notes. Good mouthfeel and body. Not overly acidic.

Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a finger of fizz. On the nose its spot on berliner... tart lemon, round cheerio malts and a little dusty barrel funk. The palate follows the nose with great refreshing notes of lime, lemony funk, a little yogurt acidity and some lingering wood notes. Nice beer.

Bomber cortesy of Bu11zeye (thanks Markus!) poured a cloudy pale yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, barnyard funk, lemon zest, light vanilla and a hint of oak. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry tart finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast, lemon zest and barnyard funk with a crisp dry tart lingering lemon finish.

Pours a pale, hazy straw color with a thin white head of foam. Smells funky and wheaty. Mild tartness with a dry, wheaty finish. Pretty good Berliner in my book.

murky light gold, thin white ring with oily top. Sulfuric grain nose, light lactic and egg, really must. Flavor shows more grain, lemonade spritz, lightly thin in the finish, watery, could use more grain, lactic levels higher, carbonation appropriate, pleasant.

Bottle thanks to Huhzubendah. Poured a yellow color. I believe many of us agreed that this one smelled a little strange and funky, and perhaps not in the good way. However, the flavor was a lot better, some tart puckering sour notes in here.

Thanks, Geist. Nose is really odd. Some oxidized grain. Flavor is quite a bit better. Light acidity and some wheat.
