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.

wedgie9 (1794) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Tasted on 9/15/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours clear straw with an average white head that recedes rather quickly to thin lace. The nose is lightly sweet tropical fruit and nicely tart with an interesting citrus aroma, and a touch of sour mash wheat malt as well. The flavor is the same, starting off with a sweet, tropical fruit note, moving to the tartness that comes from both the strange citrus fruit and the sour wheat malt. The body is almost full and somewhat sticky, with lively, stinging carbonation and a long fruity and tart finish.

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 (2356) - 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.

maddmatt639 (167) - Belmont, California, USA - APR 10, 2014
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 (465) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - 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.

Cristobal37 (230) - 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 (11866) - 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.
