3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler fill at Growlers, Hilton Head SC. Wheat and clove aroma, subtle sour. Hazy golden body with thin dissipating head. The higher alcohol content of this beer makes it more like a strong ale. Wheat and clove favor, tartness over powered by yeast flavor. A tasty beer but not a traditional Berliner.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a golden-yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of peaches and wheat, with some light tartness. The flavor is very similar. There is quite a bit of fruit - mainly peaches and lemons - as well as some wheat. There is a good bit of flavor, but the tartness level is very light. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Bridge. Pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a small white head that vanishes almost immediately. Aroma of banana, sweet malts, wheat, clove, lemon citrus, grass, and herbs. The flavor follows those same notes closely, with sweet malts, banana, clove, wheat, lemon, herbs, and some floral soapiness. Medium-bodied, with a wheaty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The weisse yeast really comes through and overpowers the lighter Berliner character. Not sure about the the imperial Berliner weisse thing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at the brewery. Bright yellow as one would expect from a beer sold as a Berliner Weisse. But this drinks like a super sweet lemon-orange soda, more a amped American wheat than a Berliner. Too sweet, not tart enough for style. Drinkable, if that’s what you want. (#4634, 7/1/2012)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a somewhat hazy amber with a thick and fine-bubbled white head that leaves some generous lacing. Wheaty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone and hints of lemon and banana. Be careful when drinking it - this stuff foams like a mad dog - er, make that mad badger! Wheaty flavor has a firm yeasty note plus subtle fruity hints. Texture has firm body and plenty of fizz.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Bine & Vine. Pours cloudy orange gold with a slight layer of transient whitish bubbles. Aroma is very fresh - light notes of banana and spice. Near med body. Flavor starts banana, moves to clove. Lemon seems in it. It’s pretty tart. Berliner weisse? Why not. A very spicy one, and one that doesn’t have extreme tart/sour, but sure. Drinks real nice.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crushed at Fresh Craft. Cloudy orange pour. Not sure this fits style. Basically a tart wheat ale. A bit heavy and just tastes unintentionally infected and sold as something else.
