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.

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

GreatDane1632 (362) - Louisiana, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Rated based on notes taken on 16 Aug 2014 -- A very very light beer. A weak Berliner base, but the Yuzu makes this an interesting beer to drink.

slowrunner77 (646) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Smells and tastes like hay and sour citrusy fruit. Refreshing even at 8%, though I think it would have been cooler at a more traditional abv, like 4 or so. Dry and lightly funky and sweet. Cool one timer

On tap at capital ale house Harrisonburg. Moderate tartness. Nice drinkability.

Dapierce17 (88) - Pasco, Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Pours an extremely hazy golden yellow with very little white head. Aroma of bitter lemon, wheat, and some barnyard funk. Initial sweet and sour lemon taste that's quickly followed by wheat notes. All flavors quickly dissipate leaving a dry feeling on the palate. Not as sour as expected and not much complexity. An easy drinker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (10576) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Poured hazy light yellow color with an small to average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate wheat and citrus aroma. Medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Interesting beer and soft for style.

Imaena (1817) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Draught. The overall profile has some of the BW elements I enjoy in the summer time. The yuzu piece did not balance out well though.

penstemon (127) - - JUL 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours clear yellow with a white foamy meringue head. Aroma is musty, flowers, lemon, sage, yeast funk, and artificial pine/turpentine. Taste is lemon candy, slight tartness, funky yeast, peppery spice, pine-sol, and earwaxy bitterness. Falls flat on the edges. Dry, flabby, seltzery fizziness. Not very enjoyable.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Very mild, faint aroma of sour fruits and maybe just a bit of yeast. Golden body with tiny white bubbles and constant effervescence. Light flavors of what I am guessing is the yuzu juice or maybe lemons and some bitterness near the finish. Very light and bubbly and nice on a hot summer evening.

bottle - This hazy gold beer has an aroma of citrus, earth, and dirty sock. Yes, dirty sock. The flavor is sweet, fruity, and tart. It has a very bubbly medium body. Interesting beer. It’s pretty good though I wish it smelled a little better.

weihenweizen (1695) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a glass. Pours hazy golden wilth small white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is tart, medium/light body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is tart, tropical fruit, odd off herbal, and slightly bitter finish. Why do I buy New Belgium, not worth the price.
