DrnkMcDermott (2748) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2011
From growler at Dark Lord Day. Growler was just labeled "Berlin," and this didn’t look quite a Berliner Weiss. Slightly cloudy yellow to brown color, thin ring of foam. Well, the smell does have some of the requisite tartness. Not like I’ve had more than 3 or 4 of these anyway. Taste proves the style, though. Nicely tart wheat beer, no brett at work, all acidulated malt. Very spritzy.

Light golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some nice tart wheat notes as well as some lemon. The flavor is more of the same. The lemon and wheat notes go very well together. There is a light bit of tartness. Very refreshing. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great Berliner.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Vintage 2013 Bottle 89/250 Blond colored ale with a little white foam. Smells of funk, some anooos, some lactic character. Nice nose. Funky with nice lactic character and a clean finish. Classic berliner flavor - really nice. Thin bodied with hi carb and a dry finish. A really well done berliner.

On tap at the brewpub
This was the second in a flight. A very easy going light sour tickles the senses and provides a nice transition from the sessionable offerings to the higher gravity stuff. If this were ever on the shelves in bombers up in northern Ohio I would likely grab a bottle.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden body is exactly what a good Beliner Weisse should be based on my limited experience. Flat with very little head it releases waves of peach, mango, lemon, and only enough tartness to hint at its origins.

Flavor / Palate - Lemons and mandarin oranges tickle the palate. The profile is light with a nice lactic baseline. A vinegary aspect sticks in the throat without being aggressive. The true definition of a sessionable sour ale this should be checked out by anyone who wants something that is great for all circumstances.

BeerandBlues2 (9071) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear gold with no head. Aroma is lactic grapes and lemon, spicy wheat malt and earthy hops. Flavor is tart, lactic grapes and citrus, light malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2013
Very drinkable Berliner. Well bugged to get a smooth sourness, without overwhelming the palate. Drinkable anytime. No head, deep yellow body.

markwise (4306) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On draft at Jackie O’s. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some lactic character and some prickly citrus with some wheat behind it. Flavor is similar- wheat, citrus, lemon, lactic, and a clean finish. A nice, light-bodied berliner overall.

czar (3784) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
pours hazy yellow with a small white cap, little retention. cheese and chlorine, celery, lemon, vinous, mineral and soapy - not the most enticing berliner aroma as you can read. also some nice lactic, bright lemon and white grapes notes. average to moderate carbonation, light body, lightly acidic and clean finish. decent berliner if not for minor but apparent defects.
