czar (5258) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
sample @ EBF 2015. unclear pale golden pour with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. obvious lime and other citrus - perfumey bergamot perhaps, hint of sweetness - ripened green apples and floral honey, light acidity - mainly lactic but not really supporting enough sweetness. average carboantion, light body - oily; lightly tart and herbal-grassy-lime-y finish. nice bit borderline artificial.

Minderbinder (2349) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
EBF Pours hazy blond with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of fruits, weird vanilla, spices, candies. Taste is of sourness, fruits, citrus, salt. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Quite good. Maybe too spicy?

tom10101 (3614) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Sample @ EBF.

Appearance: Hazy pale yellow golden with a small white head and little lacing.

Aroma: Lime and lemon forward with nice spicy features, meringue and lactic notes.

Taste: Lime and lemon and spices/cinnamon, mild tartness, lactic notes and meringue sweetness/sugary presence.

Palate: Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Never watery. Lingering lime and spicy (mild to moderate) finish.

Overall: Super tasty Berliner Weisse, maybe even a tad too flavorful. It’s still quite drinkable despite all the flavors. Like many Funky Buddha beers, it’s so close to the real taste they are trying to reproduce that it feels borderline artificial, but again here it stays acceptable... and so damn tasty.

JulienHuxley (3937) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
Sample at EBF. Hazy white gold pour with almost no head. Aroma has lots of lemon, lime, citrusy and citric, nothing really showcasing lime per se, pretty standard berliner aroma, that being said it smells really nice, a bit of spice, maybe a hint of curry. Flavor is tart, lemony, very nice, lime, coconut. Palate is light, dry, light carbonation. Good stuff.

HonusWagner (1692) - Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Really awesome. Light and drinkable for the high abv (within style) and tastes just like key lime pie without the bracing sourness of some fruited berliners.

pineypower (2668) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Draft at EBf, great call Erin. Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of tart/sweet key lime pie, straight up right down to the Graham cracker crust. Taste is the same, great balance of tart and sweet key lime pie, pie crust, Sweet. This was a standout!
