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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
