4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Tap at Funky Buddha’s 2nd year anniversary. Bright hazy yellow, no head. Nose and taste are tart sticky peach, skin and all. Not as mind-numbing as the star fruit berliner, but still something i could drink all day in the Florida heat.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a cloudy pale golden orange color with golden yellow edges and a half finger white head that immediately fades, leaving no lacing behind.
Sweet, tropical fruit aroma with a strong peach juice character but less fruit forward than the other FB Berliners I’ve tried. Subtle lactic funk and citrus acidity as well as some bready yeast, banana and other light fruit.
Medium bodied with some tart, puckering acidity and lactic funk that counters the promient peach/tropical fruit sweetness. Again, less fruit forward than their other Berliners and a bit truer to to style. Although sweet peach juice and tropical fruit is the promient flavor, there are some wheat beer characteristics with citrus acidity, lactic funk, lift fruit and sourdough bread notes. Well balanced, refreshing and easier to drink than the others(except passion fruit).

On tap. Aroma had only slight apricot, sour yeast, and sour dough. Taste was a little fruity but mostly sour. Missing the peach? The weakest of the berliners.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Funky Buddha. It pours cloudy, very pale light orange, with pretty much no head. The nose is tart, wheat, hint of peach, sweat and some feta cheese. The taste is tart, mouth-puckering peach, lemon, pineapple (akin to pineapple chunk sweets), feta cheese, Granny Smith apple and cloudy lemonade, with a tart finish. Medium body, fine, prickly carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Medium-high acidity. A delicious neo-Berliner Weisse.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft… This beer rocks!… Pours a cloudy straw-color with no head. The aroma furnishes lots of acidity, an understated peach nuance and modest wheat character with a mild tinge of fresh rubber or latex - too faint to be unpleasant, but detectable nonetheless. Light to medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Even once warm, the flavor is super acidic with the slightest trace of peach. Finishes tart and semi-dry. Other than the negligible off-aroma, this is a world class Berliner weisse!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Buddha. These treatments of Berliner are rapidly becoming my new favorite go to beer at the Buddha. This doesn’t have a ton of peach in the aroma, but it still holds a good amount of sour tart funk in the flavor and aroma. Definitely another home run from the Buddha.
