2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Avery Sour Ale Fest. Nose offers some nice, tart, acidic character that kinda made my mouth water. Flavor has nothing to offer really. Bready and wheaty with no character or complexity whatsoever. Bummer.

Draught from Avery Sour Fest. Piss yellow with no head. Lemon and lime with yeast. Flavor is mild citrus and wheat. lightly biting finish. Easy and somewhat of a relief from the other big bad brews of SOur fest

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap @ Rattle n’ Hum. Poured a hazy pale light yellow color. Some wheaty citrus aroma. Light hops come through. Very light citrus tartness makes up the flavor. Some hops in the finish. Light dull body.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Rattle n Hum: Very cloudy pour with a light yellow color and a fading white head. Bright citric/lactic aroma- wheaty and crisp. Has a very light body- slightly lacking even for this style. Not enough acidity at all. The lactic qualities this style demands are not there. . Has a clean wheaty tartness. Sessionable and goes down easy- gets extra points for that. But it’s lacking the lactic acidity.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly cloudy, yellow-golden pour. The nose is softly wheaty with a little bit of faintly acetic character. Fairly bland beer… a bit of light doughy maltiness and a pronounced pear flavour with very little in the way of lactic character. Meh… it’s actually a pretty poor interpretation of the style. It’s basically a thin wheat beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Rattle’n’Hum. To call this a berliner weisse is an insult to the name. This is just a cheap wheat overloaded with diacetyl with no lactic acid in site. My notes describe the aroma as "chicken kiev." Just a total mess in every regard, and nearly undrinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ GD taproom. Nose is prettty light on sourness/acidity for the style, shows some lemon and dusty wheat. Flavor is lemon zest and wheat with just a hint of that tart classic BW flavor. All in all, I didn’t think it was a great BW, but very quenching after the 35 mile haul from the office, and I finished it pretty damn fast and wanted another, so points for that.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Pours a pale golden body with a white head. Some dingy grape notes, white grapes with a hint of lemon. Dully dingy body with no acidity or much else to stand out. More like a lemony pils.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a lightly milky yellow with a thin white head. Very faint mustard, light acid, and a hint of sourness. Creamy mouthfeel due to the ample carbonation. Light straw and a slightly chalky acid. Really missing the sourness that makes this style stand out, but definitely something drinkable.
