Travlr (13233) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Draft at Peg’s. Cloudy yellow white, the color of Turkish Raki in water with a squeeze of lemon. Aroma of freshly baked pie crust, lime, armpits (in a good way). Taste is funky lime and biscuits. Very nice.

hopscotch (9499) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2012 Draft… This beer rocks!… Cloudy straw-colored ale with no head. The aroma is a fruity, acidic swirl of big key lime, faint cinnamon, mild vanilla and a trace of graham. Medium-bodied and very creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is fruity and as sour as Hell. Loads of delicious key lime and heavy, yeasty acidity. Crisp, tart, clean finish. God, I love key lime pie and this captures it with scary precision. World class Berliner weisse!

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Draft at Brewvival under "Ich Bin Lime Berliner." Pours a hazy straw yellow with not much of a head. Aroma of lime, bready malts and some grain. The taste is very tart limes with not much else. Medium bodied.

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Tap at Pegs for Berliner Bash. Full hazed white pour. Nose is rich, super tangy key lime, fresh and zippy, whipped cream and pie crust. Some dessert profile. Wow. Taste is super tart, whoa, key lime pulp and peel. Super tart. Big tartaric/mallic acid. Big lactic acid. Absolutely delicious.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On tap at Monk’s. Pours a hazed yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Cinnamon, lime peel, graham cracker crust. Medium bodied, lime and light acid. Toast, faint lactic acid. Bright acid with lingering lime zest and another helping of cinnamon. I liked this, but it was probably my least favorite of the four Berliner Weisses they had at the event, and solely because of the cinnamon overpowering things.

jredmond (5624) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 Draft at Pegs during the Berliner Bash 2012. Pours a creamy, beige body with thin white lacing. Aroma is fresh key lime, crust, and funk. Mouthfeel is tart and mouthpuckering with notes of key lime pie, fresh delicious limes, funky fruit, and a nice aggressive tartness. Amazing.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2012
On tap at the Peg’s Berliner Bash. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a light Ecto Cooler color with a short white head. Nose has a good dose of sour lime and accompanying peel. Nice wheat in the background of the flavor. Lime element is really nice and fits the style quite well. Light and dry with slight acidity. Really pleasant.

markwise (4543) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2012
On draft at Funky Buddha. Pours a white grapefruit juice color with a white head. Nose is prickly- key lime juice with a slight fruit sweetness in an ocean of tartness. Flavor does not disappoint either- tartness, all of the tart and citric tartness of a berliner with slight sweetness and key lime juice to prop it up. Full in body for a berliner, and all around a thing of beauty.

burg326 (3877) - Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2011
On draft at the Funky Buddha, pours a pale key lime color with virtually no head what so ever. Aromas of tart limes, vanilla, gramcracker, and a smidge of spice. As soon as I had the first sip it tasted like the key lime pie my fiance makes. The second sip was more keylime and noticed the gramcraker flavoring, and more key lime. I normally do not like berliner due to the sourness of the beer, however this one was simply amazing, and out of this world. Really wish I could get a growler of this to bring back to the Tampa crew.

PhillyCraft (3433) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2012 Glass from James during the shit show that was Funky Buddha at Monks this year. Thanks for passsing this one back to me brah. Pours hazy golden straw color with massive fluffy white head that dissipated quickly. Aromas and taste started out with mostly tart lime and alot of cinnamon, other notes of vanilla cream, lemonade, sour berliner yeasts. Such a unique and cool beer, thanks for bringing it to Philly Ryan.
