COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer needs a siren, so we brewed this beer to ring in another toasty Los Angeles summer. This bright, refreshingly tart wheat beer is our ode to the traditional German Berliner Weisse, which boasts some substantial pucker power. Take much to tradition? Ask for yours served with Woodruff or raspberry syrup. You may call this beer “Summer in a Glass” if you’d like.

"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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at Public beer & wine shop, Long Beach, 17/04/14. Clear pale golden witha moderate off white swirl atop the glass. Nose is lemon rind, straw, light spice. Taste comprises citric peels, grass, lemon sherbet, pinch of spice. Light in body, fine carbonation, crisp clean refreshing close. Simple refreshing ’linner.

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.
<br > 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.

Cloudy pale yellow with limited head. Lacto aroma. Taste is pretty tart with a wheaty finish. Pretty good one and I have had some bad ones recently.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy yellowish pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of slight corn, grain, vanilla notes, hints of grass in there as well, slight earthy tones, pretty lemon forward as well. Taste is big tart lemon, grass and vanilla, slight biscuit, bread in there with a touch of earthy tones, finishing sour, slightly dry.

Growler picked up at GRB today. Drank without any syrup. I haven’t had many of Golden Road’s newer brews but I’ve always thought this was one of their best offerings. It really delivers the tart, lemon-y flavor that I look for in this style. Full-bodied for its low ABV with a pretty long finish. A strong Berliner Weisse.
