2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 ounce bottle - $8.49 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a light, pale yellow body, lightly hazed, with a slim, white head.
Smell: Lightly sweet-scented, lemony nose with a vein of savory spice, it’s a bit perfumy like a scented bar of soap. Lacks the lactic, that much is certain.
Taste: Citrusy, lemony with a smooth tone of wheat malt. Mild sweetness. Savory, herbal quality throughout. Nil hop character, bitterness. A little tangy, acidic, but the anticipated, hoped for lactic element is absent.
Mouthfeel: Falls about medium-plus body, though barely. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: It totally forgoes all of the best attributes of a Berliner Weisse. Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining.

Wheaty, fruity, interesting. This beer is nice and light and a bit on the sour side. Its not really meant for me...

Looks and smells like perfume that doesn't go away. I've had good Berliners-this isn't one of them.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow-straw body, thin clumping off-white head. Tart, fruity, grassy nose with light clove notes. Tart, spicy, fruity body, estery; the delicate base beer is washed out by the additions and the overall effect is cloying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour with fair bright white head. Light citrus nose with faint breadiness. Flavor is quite sweet. Maybe the lacto hasn’t set in yet? Kinda like fruit juice. Didn’t really care for it all that much.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Crispy’s. Pours a light hazy gold with clingy white foam on top. Aroma is lemony and acidic. Flavor is unabashedly sour, tart, and fruity, but with a creaminess in the background that cuts some of the astringent character. I can see how this may not appeal to many folks but I really enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
9/25/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots. This comes highly recommended from womencantbrokensailwalezbro or something like that. Super clear dark golden pour, apple juice like, with a really nice off-white head that cuts in half but really sticks and laces really well. Creamy fruit smell with creamed corn - seem to be getting that from New Belgium beers lately - with a bit of orange peel and spice. Lightly tart, doughy flavor, hints at a berliner, but then sweetness, corn, and fruit takes over. Meh.
