Bottle from premier. Pours light gold, haze, slim white head. Light must nose. Taste is slightly tart, lemons, lime. Water body. It’s decent, it would be amazeballed if the body was fuller.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy very pale yellow-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma starts not quite on style (to me) with some grain, pale malt, light vegetal notes and after a bit, some light sourness and citrus comes through. Flavour is better, with some lightly sour citrus along with grain, yeast and malt in the back. Average bodied. The more I drink this the more I like it but it’s still just good, we have better Berliner Weisse’s here in Ontario.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a fairly undistinguished clear yellow with a white head. Fairly generic German-American nose, unblemished by any faults but pretty damn close to some of the better macro lagers. Sour and tart as all Berliners should be, undertones of grassy hops and mineral water. They nailed the mouthfeel, super fizzy but with a feather-light body. Decent Berliner, and I gotta bump it up a point or two for how it is a) cheap, and b) available in 12 oz bottles.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Funky citrus and grass with a salty sourness. Cloudy pale yellow with a thin almost nonexistent head. Very light citrus, funk and a slight sour finish. Very light, but refreshing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a pale hazy yellow. Taste of lemon zest. With a tart and bitter mix to finish
Almost like a sparkling white wine.

Draft. Pours pale gold with a white head. Wheaty and tart base, with light lemony citrusy notes, moderate acidity, and a nice tart finish. Very drinkable.

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks to Boost for sending this garbage. Yellow pour with lots of haze and a white head. Smells of popcorn, lemon juice, and sour apple. Some yeast and straw, too. Kind of irony. Flavor has a lot of bread and cracker to it. Popcorn, sour lemons, and green apple. Notes of yogurt and yeast. Not great.

Pours a light yellow with no head. Aroma of sour wheat, lacto, lemon and sweet malt. Taste follows, tart up front and slightly sweet finish. Basic but good

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle sent by BoostIPA and shared in the RBSG post-grand tasting hotel room share. Pours a pale, clear yellow with a white head. Mostly minerals and sourdough, but also wheat, lemon, and funk. Light-bodied, with a tart, wheaty, dry mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Not much to this one, just a sub-par take on a Berliner.
