Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Tap at GD during GABF weekend. Pours a hazy straight yellow gold with moderate carbonation and a nice white head. Aroma is basic wheaty doughy notes, some citrus and floral notes, light lemon but nothing indicatng lots of sour or funk. Flavor verifies this as there is a severe lack of acidity- too young perhaps- still nothing wrong- no acetaldehyde or DMS or isovaleric which all pop up in other breweries attempts at the style- just straight pils and wheat malts, make it easy drinking, but nothing special here- perhaps needs more time with lacto at high temps to bring out acidity?

gkost (1711) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2009
On tap @ Great Divide. Pours a hazy straw yellow. Nose is semi sweet malt, bread, mild mild acid, hints of toast. Flavor is watery, not very much tartness, mild sourness, wheat, very little lactic acid. Needs more time fermenting. Watery. Not nearly enough clean sourness.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Tap at Great Divide, GABF ’09.
Pours a cloudy light yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is malty sour lemon tea leaves and weak pineapple. Flavor is pilsner-esque yeastiness with a nutty, buttery lemon finish. Tingly, adequate mouthfeel. Refreshing, but too malty.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2009
(Draught) Pours a cloudy yellow, nicely carbonated, body with a moderate white head. Aroma of lemon, mustiness, wheat, and some herbal notes. Flavor of yeast, lemon, and wheat with a light mouthfeel and refreshing finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Draught at Great Divide. Pours cloudy yellow with an average, frothy white head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, grain, hay, cereal), light hop (herbs), heavy yeast (earth) with notes of pear and ginger. Light bodied, gritty texture, average carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and sourness. I am glad another brewer is doing a berliner weisse, as it is hard to find them.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2009
On tap at Great Divide poured a cloudy yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast and lemon. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a lightly tart finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast and light lemon with a crisp dry lightly tart finish.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 28, 2009
12 oz tulip pour at the Great Divide tasting room - enjoyed with ratman197 and IrishBoy. Pour is a whitish yellow with a one inch pure white head. Aroma is mild lemon citrus and wheat sour. Also a metallic resin note in there way in the back. Overall, the nose is quite subdued for a Berliner Weisse. Taste follows the nose, less the metallic. Starts with the lemon citrus, turns over to the sourish wheat. Cleaner than the nose, but still quite faint. Palate is crisp, lighter bodied, easy drinking. Nice enough, though would have liked a bit more aggressiveness and bite.

elihapa (1525) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 28, 2009
9/25/09 notes: on tap, brewery. Pours cloudy white-pink. Aroma is wheaty, with light brett. Some citrus hints. Flavor is a bit indescript, even for the style. Wheat dominates, with light funk primarily. The main disappointment with this beer is that I just didn’t get any of that refreshing acidity that keeps Berlingers interesting.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Draft at great divide. Pours a pale opaque yellow with white head. Lightly citrus tart nose, some wheat, a little salt, and some metallic notes. Flat flavors, some graininess but not enough sourness to balance it. Watery texture...slightly wheaty with a touch of saltiness but desperately needs more sour twang to make it good.
