3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Drank from a bomber. Rust in color, minimal white head. Starts off with a sweet almost fruit juice side to it and follows with a nice tart raspberry bite. The sweet berry flavors go great with the sour finish. Overall great light-bodied sour!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden straw color with a dissipating foam head that almost disappears. The aroma has a mild wheat scent, oak, yeast, minor sour notes, banana, and an herbal lemon raspberry scent. Tasting I noticed a sour lemon intensity, good malted wheat flavor, mild sweetness, and a good yeast taste. The sour and lemon dominate more than to my liking but this is still a fine beverage. I enjoyed the complexity of the two yeast strains of the lacto and brett. For me that blending of yeast strains makes it a tad different than a typical berliner weisse. Overall this was a drinkable and very refreshing brew.
