2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazy light golden with an active head. Nose is sour, lemon, barnyard, funky, wheat. Taste is lemony, barnyard, funk, grains but not bready, a little orangy, smells much more sour than it is, aftertaste is not great and lingers. Neither dry not sweet, in the middle. Has some decent body, pretty smooth. Don't love it. It's not a crisp or fresh, granted this is kinda an old bottle.

Bottle: cloudy golden color. Smell of citrus and herbs, but a little bit wired. Taste is very fruity of grapefruit and citrus an honey. Interesting beer but not my kid if taste.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle courtesy of Neils.... yikes. Pours out into a hazy yellow color with no visible bubbles. Nose is straight up faded mouthwash, mint, pine sol, herbal weirdness and a touch of lacto. Palate is garbage juice... eck, took two glasses of water to get this mess of my tongue. Slick almost slimey mouthfeel with strange minty herbal notes and dirty grain.

Draft pour at the Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. Came in the glass a hazy gold color with a white head. Nose is citrus. Some funk. Medium in body. The flavor is just slightly sour and there is that citrus. Finish is like the beginning and middle which is to say sour and citrus. But not a lot of sour. Good drink.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 It took quite a bit of courage to order this beer. Man, I must really enjoy ticking beers. I typically loathe New Belgium beers, and this one is no exception. At least it’s overpriced. The beer is pale yellow with a small white head. Aromas of lemon, hay, sweet lemon cookies, alcohol, grain. The flavor and the feel are poor. Out of balance, overly sweet, artificial tasting. Too much alcohol for a Berliner, lacking all of the qualities that can make this style so delectable. Another gimicky, bullshit beer from New Belgium, where sales take precedence over quality.

On tap at Duke st whole foods. Pours a clear dishwater yellow with quicu fading head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is sweet yeast, corn and slight tang. Fire alarm went off at this point. Flavor is mild and overall out of balance.

Draft at ChurchKey, thanks solidfunk! Hazy yellow color with off-white head. Aromas of lemon, herbs, floral notes. Tasting notes of lemon and herbs mostly, some floral notes and citrus, very light tartness. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

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.
