3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is butterscotch/vanilla sweetness, tart/sour fruit and a slightly abrasive element. The flavor is bananas, pale malts, bread and a mildly tart finish. Decent as a whole although slightly bland.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of StefanSD. Tart lactic lemon and bready yeast aroma. Cloudy yellow with a small white head, poured very carefully due to the inch of heavy, chunky yeast sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Sweet lemon and bready yeasty wheat, light spice flavor with just a bare hint of tartness. Light body, moderate carbonation. Overall, not especially Berliner Weisse in style, but still pleasant and refreshing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Whole lemon, coriander underneath. Milky yellow, thin head. Dry, and lightly tart lemon flavor. Less coriander and more tartness, but far from being a berliner weiss. Much more like an unspiced or lightly spiced wit. Carbonation seems artificial. Nice but not very authentic.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber courtesy of Pete (non-RB) and to some extent GT2. Pours very hazy pale yellowish golden with a huge frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet, tiny sour and very phenolic with banana bread, lemon juice, plums, grapes, damp cellar, soda water, sheet metal, cloves, dry soil, white paper and plums. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly sour, fruity and phenolic with banana, lemon juice, mouldy bread, minerals, crackers, dry soil, cloves, green grapes, plums and hints of buttery wood. Mouthfeel is crisp, slightly dry, tiny tart and light bodied. Finish is slightly sour with banana bread, cloves, lemon juice, dry soil, sheet metal, buttery wood and hints of lemon zest and white pepper. Not what I expected and a disappointment considering the few Berliner Weisse I’ve tried so far.
