3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle from Binnys Marcy (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich glowing golden orange hue, healthy glow and lively carbonation. A cakey whitish head sits atop, sticks around as a layer and laces ok overall. Lively carbonation, firm haze and inviting glow. Aromas are tart sour mash, lactobacillus, lemons and dust. Flaked wheat, bready malts, and touches of yogurt. A more vibrant lemony and orange aroma starts to grow as it warms, firm sourness on the front. Lactic, yogurt, and dry bready grainy malts, mellow sweetness swept up into a sufficiently citrusy sour nose. Simple yet inviting. Initial is medium bodied, a bit thicker and sweeter up front presenting some estery fruit, apple and touches of banana. A yeasty dryness, grainy bready, straw and dry grass. Mellow spice, gentle pear, light touches of tartness hit the palate, a firm kick of sweetness, straw, and estery fruit. Middle is a bit thick and more in line with a wheaty beer, lacking a stronger tart kick, remaining a bit sweet, malty, with some flashes of dryness. Backend offers yogurt, spicy yeast, and flaked wheat and estery fruit. Lacks the refreshing sourness and lighter easily drinkable body I’d want. Perhaps some time will do it good, but it shouldn’t be drank right now.. It’s mildy tart with more defining bigger wheat ale characterstics, estery fruit, spice, and dryness, flaked wheat elements and some thicker body in there. Nose wasn’t bad, but the beer falls well short of the goal it set for itself. It’s not a bad beer, but it’s just much different than expected.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber. Aroma is wheat with tart, citrus notes. Pours golden, straw colored with a decent, white head excellent lacing. Taste is a lot like a wheat beer to start. Finishes dry, with the citrus notes coming through strong on the finish. Not bad, but just a little tart for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
he 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.

Poured a golden color from the bottle with aromas of wheat, light lemon, and some fruit. Flavors were wheat, and light tart lemon, not the best beer to style, but ok overall.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750ml bottle. 2012 Vintage. Poured a cloudy golden color with an averaged sized head. Would not have guessed this was a Berliner Weisse ... fruity with lighter citrus. Had an over carbonated and somewhat fizzy body that drowned everything out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle at RBAG 2013. Gold pour, hazy, small swirl of white cap on top. Nose has spices, yeast and bread with slight citrus and fruit. Taste is bready, yeasty with lemon. Some spice at the end with dough and yeast. Not very traditional, but a decent summer beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Lightly hazy yellowish gold with a creamy white head. Not much lacing present. Aroma is sweet, some lemon grass, wheat with just a touch of underlying citrus. The palate is much the same, but comes over far too sweet for the style, very little salty/citric/sharp/refreshing tangyness one would expect. And at 7.5%, way too high in alcohol. Not very subtle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Lightly hazy yellow-gold topped by a creamy white head; spare lacing. Aroma is sweet and wheat with an underlying tanginess. The palate is much the same, quite sweet though, not quite syrupy but certainly stickier than a Berliner weisse should be in my mind. Not bad, but not what I had hoped for I guess.
