COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Napoleon hailed this tart beer style "the Champagne of the North." A lively and elegant masterpiece this Berliner Weiss is a kaleidoscope of fresh flavor.

Bottle to snifter (thanks StFun). Looks good for the style; a hazy lemon gold with lively carbonation and white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells solid; tart and wheaty. Tastes like it smells, only better, with some lacto and a touch of lemon. Tart and lively on the palate. A good example of the style.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Bottled. Poured clear, straw golden with a tall, fluffy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up fresh lime, salt, and light woodsy sourness.. very clean, and it smelled like it was going to be refreshing. The flavor found sour lactic notes and lime on the tip of the tongue, with fine carbonation rolling it nicely through the mouth.. salty on the edges and finish, and very dry the whole way through.. almost champagne-like effervescence on the crisp, refreshing finish. Light-bodied with fine carbonation on the palate.. great balance and almost unstoppable drinkability.. excellent stuff!

Prufrockstar (834) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear golden with dense white head, leaving behind irregular lacing. Nose is funky-tart, citrus, and a little vinous. Taste brings out toasted cereal grains. Tart / acidic. Thin, water texture; light body, ample carbonation. Overall: great aroma and appearance, but a little let down by the taste and texture.

Huhzubendah (2431) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle shared by Chaney. Thank you Brandon. The beer is light golden and transparent with a thin, pure white head. The aroma offers grain, pilsner malt, fruity esters. The flavor is ok. Cereal grains with a hint of sourdough bread. A bit underwhelming. Zesty carbonation with fruity hop notes. This was ok, but I don’t see myself returning to this beer again.

valpoaj (614) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pours pale straw color with a billowing white head that recedes slowly. Aroma is yeasty, tart and spicy...enticing! Flavor is slightly mellower than what I remember from the ’unplugged’ version of this beer, but still the sour/tart wheat beauty that I remember. Incredibly easy (actually, too easy) to drink...medium to high level of effervescence but incredibly smooth on the palate. Yum! Plan to do a side-by-side with the unplugged soon as I have about 4 of those left...can’t wait!

drewbeerme (3879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours real hazy straw yellow with white head. Aroma has a pleasant white grape, some oak, touch yogurty lactic thing. Flavors have a balance of tart and sweet, white grapes and lemon, lactic. Mouth feel is highly carbonated, big spritzy champagne feel. Refreshing.

TheEpeeist (3297) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2013
12 oz bottle. Clear pale gold with a delicate white head. Nose is chardonnay, lemon and vanilla custard. Crisp and creamy with a sour bite and prickly carb. Taste is between lemon and lime perfectly sour and slightly sweet. Hints of white grape with a dry oaky finish. Beautiful stuff, no fruit required.
