COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A terrifically tart and refreshing ale, brewed with Pilsner and Wheat malt. An addition of lacto and extra aging time gives this ale a distinct tartness, which elevates the beer to a complex and interesting beverage with notes of lemon and a very dry finish.

Pours thick unclear lemonade with a small white head. Aroma brings lemon tart yeast, refreshing in the nose. Flavors of lemony yeast not too tart or dry, but thirst quenching with the yeast forward.

Location: Draft at the Wrigleyville location, 7/6/14

Aroma: This one has a nice tart, clean aroma, citric, some champagne yeast
Appearance: This one pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a bubbly white head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, tart, a little sweet, citric and yeast flavors
Palate: This one is very easy drinking, crisp and clean on the mouth, and fairly refreshing
Overall Impression: I thought this was a nice, light, refreshing low alcohol beer. On a rather hot afternoon I found it quite tasty and refreshing.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Tap @ Goose Island: An almost fully opaque, dense yellow with no head as it arrives. The thinnest white collar is gone in moments. Aroma has mild sour wheat, some funky hay notes, a slight touch of musty barn, & a tiny kick of lemon & stone fruit towards the finish, just outside of acidic. Taste is quite mild, even within the style, but it works. Refreshing tart zing, but far from sour. Tart wheat, lemon, a touch of citrus, some grainy must, dry yeast in the finish. A little hay/straw & some very timid stone fruit. Not acidic, overly sour, overly funky... Just a solid, drinkable brew with no qualms. Quite nice.

Not the best Belinner Weisse Iíve had, but still a tasty refreshing beer. If your a Berlinner Weisse fan you might find this interesting as it has quite a lot of body for a Berlinner Weisse, almost like itís brewed with marris otter.

At Clybourn brewpub. It was too orange and too cloudy and the carbonation wasnít the fine champaign like bubbles of other Berliner Weiss beers. However it was a wonderful tart funky delicious beer. Serving: Tap

At the brewery with cherry syrup added. Lots of barnyard smell and a bit tart in the nose. The cherry is nice to add and the Berliner is well rounded...not too tart with lemon and citrus and isnít too sour or pucker enducing.

Nice tart and zippy Berliner weisse. Tiny abv makes it really easy to session. If only it was priced lower

Beerman6686 (4676) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2013
This poured a semi cloudy very light yellow with a white head. Aroma was of mild band aid, brett, and oak and lemon. Flavor was mainly oaky lemon water. Pretty straight forward.
