3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2012 Bottle ahared at Craft, thanks to Jack. Pours lightly hazy gold with a small, creamy white foam head. Nose holds some doughy malts, light lemon. Medium sweet flavor with tons of doughy malts, hints of lemony citrus, bread. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet, doughy malt finish, very light lemon tang. Does not have the tartness I would expect from a Berliner weisse. Tasty beer, though.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy blonde colour with a decent white head. Aroma of peach, banana, cloves, wheat, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle $10.49 Bright orange color, hazy and cloudy, foamy head. Smell is wheat and a bit of tartness, not bad. Taste is more wheat, hint of citrus and a lactic quality, just slightly tart. Overall not bad but not one that I would revisit for the price.

Bottle. Poured hazy light yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, alcohol and sour aroma. Medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet & sour flavor with a medium sour & sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poor execution. I would expect more of a sourness and lower abv from the style. Yeasty and some sour fruit aroma. Cloudy deep yellow. Boozy. Only a little sour. So-so drinkability.Medium mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml Bottle. The pour was a light hazy orange with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that was mostly diminishing, down to a thin puddled film with a small collar and had really good sheeting of lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty Belgian Brett yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple and a hint of coriander.
The taste was sweetly tart with a good strong dose of citrus from the onset, becoming rather yeasty and bit fruity with a tart and mildly spicy finish. The flavor lasted and average duration following the swallow with a nice sour citrusy flavor left behind.
Mouthfeel was right in between light and medium in body with a creamy and slightly dry texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall this was a really flavorful brew with lots of sweet fruitiness and a bold yeasty tart ending...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a perfect pint. 2012 vintage.
3.5 A: Moderately hazed dark yellow color. Two fingers of frothy/fizzy white head that falls quickly and leaves just a few whisps of lacing.
3.0 S: It doesnít smell bad, but itís missing many of the things I love about the style. Foremost, it isnít tart in the nose at all. It smells more like an APWA. Secondarily, itís got a lot of bready yeastiness which prevents it from smelling refreshing if that makes sense. Peppery spiciness, surprisingly potent wheat, and bready yeastiness.
3.0 T: Like the nose, the taste is muddled by yeast. Thereís a bit of funk, but again lacking tartness. Spicy peppery yeastiness, breadiness, and wheat. Again it tastes like an APWA.
3.0 M: Medium body. Not light and refreshing, which is something I like about the style. Rather, itís dense and chewy. I canít ding it too much though as it goes down easy enough.
2.5 D: They need to rethink this beer or stop calling it a BW. Itís not bad (itís not good either), but itís not what I wanted.
