3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a pale unclear gold yellow with a soapy white head that settles to a thin film. Aroma is lightly tart lemon citrus wheat and grassy. Taste is soft lightly tart with some lemon malt and subtle spice and yeast. Palate is thin fizzy and drying. Pretty nice, and very drinkable! I like, but little expensive.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
