COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yuzu is a strange fruit- citrusy and bold. Those three words: strange, citrus and bold are the perfect beginnings for a great beer. So, our brewers paired yuzu with the sourness of a Berlinerweiss to create this beerlicious Yuzu Berlinerweiss. Brewed with pale malt and wheat this Berlinerwiess was acidified with Lactobacillus for a light, dry mouthfeel and tart refreshment. Hazy and straw-colored, the yuzu fruit brings a tropical charm to a traditional beer.

Doesn’t taste like a Berliner weisse. More like a said on with fruit juice. Pours golden with OK head and lacing. Finishes sweet and sour, though both are light. Tap at Churchkey.

Tried twice, both bottles poured into pint glasses. First bottle was amazingly crisp and citrusy with just enough sourness to make it interesting and different. Second bottle fell a bit flat and was more like an average unfiltered wheat. I suspect handling issues were at play with the second bottle.

On tap at New Belgium. Appearance: small white head, yellow color, cloudy, poor to moderate lacing. Aroma: light citrus, wheat, fruity. Palate: light body, average carbonation, sticky texture. Taste: sweet with very light tartness. Overall, nothing amazing, but unique and decent balance.

Bottle poured into pint glass. Pours a hazy light citrus yellow. Aromas of wheat , lacto and citrus. Flavor is muted but is akin to a lighter citrusier blue moon. Not awful. But not spectacular.

BVery (6270) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2014
Tap at Town Hall Lanes. Semi-hazy golden pour with a white head. Fruity sweet nose and taste. Slightly tart, slightly dry. Seems to take care of a salt craving too. Decent brew.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
One of the best of the series for me no doubt! Pours deep straw somewhat cloudy with a creamy white head. Aroma is awesome, tart and some green ale sweetness up front and then funk that blend so well. Flavor brings some tartness and light tang, but not big like the aroma. Lacto is much nice in the nose, underdeveloped in the body. The tang could have been enhanced by the yuzu.

Draught at Churchills Pub & Grille, San Marcos. Clear yellow beer with a decent white head. Sourish fruity aroma, salty, grass, citrus, grapefruit, some mango. Sweetish fruity aroma, grassy, oranges, some citrus. Rather sweet and thin.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of lemon zest, orange sour fruits. Tastes of grapefruit, tart lemon and citrus. No aftertaste. Do not like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JBPortland (779) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 10, 2014
22oz bottle pours cloudy pale brown orange with 2 finger head. Nose is musty lemony citrus, zest, grain. Taste is muddy overripe citrus fruit, faint cereal grain, a touch of bile. This has almost no tartness whatsoever, contrary to the intended style. Finish is weird rotten fruit, cereal. Strange.
