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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5102) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a pale yellow color with a small foamy white head that faded and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy banana with a tart and chalky undertone. The flavor was tart, dry and chalky with some artificial banana and a bit of bread. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Pours pale yellow, small fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly tart citrus, a bit funky, very fruity and refreshing aroma. Taste is sweet and tart orange and grapefruit, slight bitterness, mouthfeel is a bit oily. pretty good.

Cristobal37 (278) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
Horrible. Smells like cat piss. Doesnt taste a whole lot better. Sour, carbonated, with a nasty stale finish. Yuzu tastes good on raw fish, but not in this weisse. Pass!

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
Hazy light tan colour, little bit of bubbly head. Aroma is a bit of footy yeast with a touch of indistinct fruitiness. The body is actually soft, sweet, with the lacto only showing up a bit late. The yuzu provides a nice little bit of refreshment as well. Not bad.

Pours a hazy gold with a nonexistent white head. Aroma of Granny Smith apples, olives and fruit. Flavour is light and of sour fruit and sweet. Body is medium and very refreshing. Finish is fruity apples and balanced.

Luvystypotables (806) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2014
A very mild aroma of citrus. A cloudy straw colour without much head. A peppery taste with a hint of fruit and citrus an oily feel with a spicy palate.

bluejacket74 (1398) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2014
22 ounce bottle, packaged June 2013. Served in a goblet, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a half inch white head. Head retention is good, and thereís a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is mostly fruity, thereís a citrus-like aroma that Iíll assume is from the yuzu juice. Thereís also some citrus peel and apple cider noticeable. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some wheat/bready malt and a bit of peppery spice. Mouthfeel/body is medium, with a moderate amount of carbonation. Itís also smooth and pretty easy to drink. I liked this brew, but I didnít think it was very tart at all. Still, itís worth a try if youíve never had it before. $8.99 a bomber.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Hazy orange pour with a white head. Straight up, this beer stinks. Like a sweaty gym bag. Flavor is nice with some citrus notes which was surprising considering how bad it smelled. It could have been more tart and I would have been fine with that. Ok, but this beer could have been so much better.

Cloudy glowing orange color. Smells fragrant like soap. Very citrus wheat taste missing some of the expected sour.

Bulk_Carrier (2281) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 7, 2014
The appearance has a super light golden yellow colored body with a thin half fingered white foamy head that dies within less than a minute. Lacing is somewhat light and clings in a speckled sort of a messiness around. The smell is basically soured grapefruit and light orange coming through in a sour/somewhat tart kind of way, yes my nose is bothered by this and though Iím not entirely into this style, I understand that my nose is supposed to be bothered or at least "annoyed" (sorry for lack of better words) by the style. The taste has a strong sour/tartness thing going on with a decent sweet fruity backing coming in to balance it a bit. There is a dry grapefruit/orange aftertaste with a super dry finish. On the palate, it sits light, fairly sessionable, with a nice refreshing quality to it (why am I having it this time of year, oh yeah, its from June 2013, ha, no worries). There is not as much sharpness or harshness as expected from other Berliner Weissbiers Iíve had, but am I complaining - heck no way - not from this guy. Overall, hmmm...to me I think I would have this one again, but Iím nowhere close to being someone who knows Berliner Weissbiers well. Unsure, but I am unsure if I would have this again.
