COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
a.k.a. Chris’s Summer Delight, an unfiltered, refreshingly tart small batch beer conceived by our own Chris Haveman from 50% wheat malt and just a touch of Hersbrucker hops.

BelgianBeerGal (3139) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Utah state liquor store bottle. Yep I bought it because it was a Berliner Weisse and not because of its ranking. A little grainy and thin for me. A little tartness but that is overpowered by some dustiness. Meh.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for the bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a white head. Zesty, lemon, honey, citrus aromas. Light, lemon, tart flavors. Nice, drinkable berliner weisse.

jkwood04 (3878) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 1, 2012
22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of tartness, some caramel and pale malts, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, with some light fruits too. Very carbonated. A decent beer of the style but not my favorite.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. A case study in low expectations. Having read some of my buds’ ratings, I was prepared to train-wreck. Not the most elegant vehicle, sure, but passable, at least more so than expected. Pour is fairly standard, cloudy gold with moderate carbonation. Nose a touch acrid and heavily citrusy. Mouthfeel a bit watery, not so puckering. Lemon drop and mildest funk to taste. Slightly dingy dishwater occasionally pokes its head out from the easy-drinking citrus, but thankfully not too prominently.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bomber marked down cheap. Like three bucks. Clear golden pour with a big pillowy white head. Nice cap of foam. Aroma was lemony with notes of honey and earthy malt. Slightly sweet. Flavors were lightly tart, mild lemon peel, touch of dusty cardboard. Nice carbonation, lively mouthfeel with a light bittersweet finish. Why the low ratings? I thought this was very refreshing and nice. I really like this style.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2012
22oz bottle $4.49. Bright yellow with a couple bubbles. Smell is a mix of cardboard and wheat. Flavor is the most subtle tarness, wheat, hint of lacto? Surely not. Extremely easy to drink but as far as the style this is disappointing overall. Oh well, at least it was cheap. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-28-2012 23:46:45

deyholla (6608) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Sampled from the bottle at the Cajun Cafe Fall Fest. Pours a near clear gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a pretty strong acidic note with some sour fruit (medicinal) and an underlying earthy wheat. Flavor is slightly more balance bu still a bit of medicinal sour fruit with musty wheat.

theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. Enjoy by 9.17.12 printed on label. The pour is a light haze golden copper, with a one inch slightly dirty white head. That head falls slow and rocky. The aroma is wheat grain, grass, and lemon citrus. The taste is the grain of the wheat, slightly tart lemon, and finishes with grass and lemon fruit. The palate is light to medium bodied, with soft carbonation, and the mild tart finish. Touch of diacetyl dirtiness present in the long aftertaste. More or less a wheat bear with a touch of tartness. Thanks Brandon.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Bomber from Oak Tree Buy Rite, S. Plainfield, NJ. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin tan head that fades quickly. Tart aroma with notes of apples, pale malts, faint toastiness. Tart tasted as well with tart lemons, pale malts, apple finish. Light-Medium bodied. Decent.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2012
22 oz. bottle from the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy light, bright yellow-gold with a big white head. Light aroma. White and doughy bread, apple, funk, and straw. Flavor of lemon, wheat, apple, and light dough. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a soft, lightly tart mouthfeel. Liked each sip more than the last. Not bad.
