2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big bottle in a stemless bulb. Pours golden with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, spices, hints of tartness but very little. Flavor the same. Agree with adamjackson’s rating, not a Berliner Weisse

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: hazy golden yellow with virtually no head. Aroma is tart grass and funky yeasy on the nose. Flavor is mostly lemony tart with a punch of sweetness, grassy wheat, and a yeast funk. Unusual flavor, would have more pop with greater carbonation, would make for a nice hot weather refresher.

750 ml bottle from Red Stone Liquors. Nose is apricots, candy sugar and over ripe fruit. Flavor is lemons, clove like notes and again dried fruit. It has a solid wheat back one which I enjoy. The beer itself is pretty good. It is nowhere near a Berliner Weisse, more like a Belgian ale. No sour or tart notes anywhere here. I understand raters being angry with what is advertised. Because if you want sour or tart you are not going to find it in this brew. Still all in all not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- filtered straw yellow with a decent off white half finger of head. S- strong ripe banana and yeast, with a dose of malts and dough to make a healthy banana bread aroma. Plums and strawberries also present and once again mix with the banana to create a hint of Yoplait strawberry banana yogurt. M- Effervescent, and mildly tart with a medium palate. T- Tease of sour at first that heads towards heavy malts and phony berry flavor. "Runts" banana follows and like the aroma, mingles with the doughy malts to simulate a packaged, truck stop banana bread. The ending is relatively quick with a flat soda water, generic berries and weak astringent/alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at Alchemy. Unfiltered golden-tan body. No real head, thin micro-residue. Sweet and sugary, think Tripel. Cloying and rich, with a candy sugar feel. Brutal, a pint of this is way too much. A touch of honey orange alcohol laced twang. Pretty decent, but awkwardly styled. Clove. Big, but grows on you by the end. Mead-like honey tones.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25. This one was a nice surprise. I was a little worried about a 7.5% berliner, but this drinks more like a sour thankfully. It pours a cloudy yellow/orange with a white head. The aroma is tangerines, lemon, wheat and a touch of lactic yogurt. The flavor is nicely tart with tangerines, lighter notes of lemon and yogurt. Pretty easy drinking and approachable for a big sour. Worth seeking out.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a golden color with a finger of fizzy foam that settles out quickly. On the nose there is a light lemon tartness and lots of belgian yeast ester... hmmm not really the aromas Id expect from a berliner weisse. The palate unfortunately follows the nose with a big sticky belgian ester that reads nothing like a berliner. Not sure what happened here as the beer in it finishing stages shows glimpses of lactic and lemony tartness but the majority of the beers flavor profile read like a Belgian golden and not a berliner. Poopy

On tap at burger. in Santa Cruz. Uhhhhh. Pours like orange juice. Huge banana wheat stuff going on, a lot like a hefeweizen, with maybe a mild tartness. Heavy and gross from the laughable ABV. Skip this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[ Courtesy of jackl ]. Unclear medium yellow colour with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is light to moderate malty, pale malt, moderate hoppy, grass, citrus, moderate yeasty, tart citrus, funky, lactic notes. Flavour is moderate sweet and light acidic - sour milk with a long duration, tart citrus, citrus peel, hoppy, yeasty, citrus. IMO. quit fresh. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
