3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from a trade with jdb288. This beer is very clear and white gold. A white fluffy head. Visible carbonation is moderate. Lacto, spice, and fruit are smelled. Some unique fruit in the flavor. It is passion in front with some citrus. Malts here are pale and are surprisingly big and smooth. Somehow I taste oranges and peaches but honestly, the fruit is all over the place. This is quite different and could almost be a Dogfish beer.

Tap - fair size foamy head, medium clear straw color, citrusy tart aroma and flavor, light bodied, very refreshing, very good for this style

22 oz bomber. Hazy pale gold with a decent sized white head. Aroma is of peach juice, peach skin, pineapple, light tartness, and grain. Taste is of lemons, herbs, tea, a hint of tart, and grain. I would not guess that this is a Berliner Weiss...too sweet and not very tart at all.

Bottle. The look is a whitish head, hazy, and golden in color. The smell is fruity, pears, flowers, cactus, and tart. The taste is sweet, too sweet for style, fruits, tea, Arnold Palmer, kool aid.

A high alcohol berliner with lots of citrus. Hazy yellow. Nose was very lemony, grassy, and tart. The taste was had a wheat base that is both sweet and sour.. Very juicy and soft mouthfeel. Still kind of disappointed.

Tasting at Bruce’ s pad. Hazy gold beer with a small white head. Palate is soft and airy and a little dry. Sweetish candy citrus with a little lemon and mandarin. Mild floralness. Light crisp finish. Not as bad as people would have you believe! A nice fruity zing, just a little too sweet for the style.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: very hazy gold, has a small white head that dissipates very fast to nothing
Aroma: barnyard funk, yeast, pungent, sour, faint
Taste: sour, tart, has that wild kind of barnyard taste to it, but not too much of it, lite citrus to it too
Palate: average c02, leaves a wild aftertaste, dry, some froth to it
Overall: this is really good I'm impressed, very light barnyard taste to it and also a light citrus to it, easily drinkable

Not a great beer. The Berliner Weisse designation made me hope for some sourness, but this was all juicy, citrusy sweetness.

22oz bottle, shared with friends over a game of Catan. Clear golden color. Little, bubbly off-white head. Little reaches of lace. Not as sour as expected, only light tart - much more sweet than is typical for the style. Good funky lemony and orange citrus aroma. Reminds me of a sort of soda... Mello Yello? Friends offer "Surge", that sounds closer... Bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Kind of slick in the finish. Not a great berliner weisse, but a pretty refreshing and easy drinking beer for 8%. Friends say it reminds them of white wine up front, but with a "not overwhelmingly sour" finish. Good, refreshing, easy drinking stronger beer. Besides the bigger body and light to moderate sweetness, it hides the alcohol well.
