Taste, aroma even appearance all seem like lemons on wheat soaked water. I must admit this is my first time trying the style but holy nuts this was tough to get dow. Super puckering, not rewarding, not refreshing. I will say it looks good.

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.

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.

On draft at City Beer. It pours pale yellow with a lasting white head. The aroma has a lot of wheat, bread and a pleasantly mild lactic tartness. The flavor is more tart with lemon coming in on the back end. Surprisingly full bodied for a small beer and rather frothy with lasting tartness on the palate. Dry with a slightly astringent finish. Tasty.

Had a pint on tap at Mohawk Bend. Berliner weisse has been creeping up in abv lately, and it’s nice to see this under 3. Delicious, refreshing, lemony, but with decent body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy lemon yellow with low white head
Aromas of sour fruits - a lot of them
Very nice sour taste full of lemon and grapefruits
Being only 2.8% this is great! Good mouthfeel even if its a bit too sour.
