3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice hazy pour with 1 finger quickly dissipating micro-bubbled head. Simple yeasty, lightly malty and citrus nose. Very light and clean. Light and tart with a thinner palate. Bright mouthfeel gives way to a slightly sticky end. The taste is dominated by lemon and orange juice. Citrusy to be sure. Palate is yeasty and crackery malts. End is yeasty and citrusy. Nice Berliner. A little too sweet and sticky.

"Straw yellow cloudy pour, light body and flavor even for the style. But what is there is good, tart lemo and wheat on the nose and palate. Finishese clean and tart. Refreshing."

Draft. Pours hazy yellow-ish with a white head. Moderately tart citric acidity, a light wheaty base, low sweetness, and a nice zippy lemony tart finish. A chugger, for sure.

Thanks to errl for sharing this growler. Straw-colored pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have some nice wheat and light lemon notes. The tartness makes the beer very easy to drink. Thin mouthful and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

Tap. Raspberry syrup? WTF?? Pours cloudy pale yellow, without the fucking syrup thank you. Small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is wheat, lemon, grain. Flavor is quite light tart, lightly sweet, notes of lemon and wheat. Pretty bland; now I see what the syrup is supposed to be for. Light body, high carbonation. Not a standout for the style.

Nice tart lactic aroma, some lemon in there. Flavor is full and nicely sour. Light and refreshing Berliner, but still full flavored. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in San Diego (CA)
Despite the fact there were a number of appealing house beers at Monkey Paw I started off with a pint of a low key session beer. This was a very nice berliner weiss with a slight West Coast twist to it. If somebody were to come to me saying "I do not like beer" I would offer them this and see if it changed their mind.
Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated golden base bubbles like a soft drink. Pillowy white head are fluffy clouds crowning the sky during a brilliant sunset. Lemons, tart notes, and sweet lend it the profile of a fresh ginger ale or carbonated lemonade with a spritz of hops.
Flavor / Palate - Carbonated lemonade best sums up a profile which lacks the urgent punch of some berliner weisses. On the other hand it still has that nice effervescence that belies a true session beer. Dry champagne caps off a nice finish that refreshes even without the addition of any syrup.
