3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from a bomber. Light golden pour with a white head. Slight lemon nose. Slightly sour. Soft. Not much going on. I prefer berliners with more complexity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a bomber at Where the Wild Beers Are. Hazy yellow pour. Nice flavor, but maybe a bit much body and not crisp enough. Decent enough.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle pours a slightly hazy bright yellow with a medium white head. Mellow sweet aroma, pretty dry, some lemon, with light lacto. A crisp tart lemon taste all the way through, with sour green apples and some earthy light grains. A very nice Berliner!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazed straw yellow color with a fluffy white head. Nice aroma of slight lemon but also has a sweet smell like carmel that throws me a little. Light mouthfeel. Melon, pineapple, green apple, and lemon zest. Maybe a light biscuti note as well. Overall pretty tasty but a touch sweeter than some other Berliners than I have had before.

750 ml bottle at Mad Capper, Stillwater. A rare Berliner Weiss sighting! My first Berliner Weiss (Schultheiss) was about 10 yrs ago in Berlin. I hated it. Although I know I’ve had considerable palate development since then, this is very drinkable on its own (unlike the Schultheiss). Afraid to even try the raspberry & blueberry syrup we were given. Quite good and sure to please sourheads. A gal from Alaska we’re with also really liked. Well done.
