3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bordering a Belgian witbier, this is a decent approximation of the Berliner weisse style. The tartness is there, in the background, not upfront like a Kindl Weisse. I’d like to try this with some of the German flavor syrups. Pale golden with thin foamy head (short-lived). Body is light, flavor is wheat bread with some citrusy tartness. Finish is slightly dry. Refreshing on a hot day.

Pours a golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma it’s sour wheat, grass, and old hay. The taste is slightly sour, very thin, and ends with a little funky wheat, barnyard taste. Interesting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent rail thin yellow color, solid medium high carbonation, a few whisps of white upon the liquid surface for a head with a few frog eyes for good measure. Aroma of dusty and musty wheat, and maybe some lemon. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tries to tastes like pure sunshine but it got lost even before it hit the atmosphere, finish is tart, slightly sweet, and a fart worth of sour. It’s ok- nothing worth getting naked about.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle from Sparky, thanks E!) Pours a clear light gold color with streams of carbonation and thin white head which retains well. Aroma holds plenty of wheat, light funk, must, and apples. Flavor holds some light lemon zest, white wine-esque acidity mixed with mineral water, Granny Smith apple skin, and a healthy dose of wheat on the end which gets slightly buttery in the far finish. Mouthfeel is light and spritzy. This beer was pleasant to drink on what’s been a quite hot and humid day.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy pale golden with one finger of white head. Nose is tart and apple-y with some grainy notes. A hint of wet hay and feet/socks comes through but very subdued (compared to others I’ve had....). Very light and dry with a sessionable tartness on the finish. Interesting flavor. Hard to describe, some raw noodle character and a bright apple skin acidity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Slightly hazy yellow with a small, fizzy, white head. Aroma of wheat, lemon, peach and light lactic acid. Flavor is tart lemon, lactic, with a light malt sweetness and faint bitterness. Light body with a crisp finish. Pretty nice beer, very light like it should be but with a good amount of flavor.

22 oz bottle- Pours pale golden with a one finger head that reduces to a thin blanket. Aroma is lemony, grassy, some spice. The taste is thirst quenching, lemon lime, slightly tart, grassy, bread. Body is thin and carbonation is medium. Overall nice summer thirst quencher, nothing much more.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle, BB Sept 2013. Pours a hazy straw colour, large white head quickly fades to nothing. Aroma is mainly bread, wheat, slight hint of toast, and lemon. Clean lactic refreshing sourness, sweet with hints of wheat & a hint of saltiness. Light body, thin feel, fizzy, lively carbonation. Very dry finish, leaving hints of bready wheat on the aftertaste. Very refreshing Berliner Weiss.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. I picked up a bomber at the full sail brewery in hood river. I am not well seasoned in the style having only tried a few previously. This had all of the nice dry sourness I expected but it had a faintly metallic taste I found off putting.
