3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
13th November 2013
Tasting at Bruce’ s pad. Hazy gold beer with a small white head. Palate is soft and airy and a little dry. Sweetish candy citrus with a little lemon and mandarin. Mild floralness. Light crisp finish. Not as bad as people would have you believe! A nice fruity zing, just a little too sweet for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Medium white head atop clear straw body, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, kiwi, some funk, light sour. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, light alcohol, sourness. Soft medium body, some stickiness. Not bad, but I agree with RB that at 8% and a body to match, this is not a Berliner Weisse.

Bottle @ home. Thanks for sharing, Jake. Clear golden pour with a white head. Sweet, sugary nose. Herbs, lemongrass, and actually some alcohol. Oregano, yuzu, and lemon. Flavor is yuzu, sweet malt, sugar, and oregano. Not very pleasant.

Draft at Trappeze in Athens. Hazy yellow color, fluffy white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of sweaty feet and belly button lint with lemons. Taste is softly sour sweat socks and light tropical fruit. Delicious. A Rockiesweisse, I guess.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ New Belgium. The bartender told me this was district from their previous Imperial Berliner Weisse and I honestly don’t remember the old version very closely. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a thin white head. A lot of vanilla, banana, and apple in the aroma. Somewhat tart, pineapple, tropical fruity, apple, lemon, banana tangy flavor. Not too hard to drink but too strong and lacks the lactic notes of a true Berliner.
