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 from Scot at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours tarnished translucent light gold with a slight white head. Lightly tart aroma. Citrus note. Med minus body. Flavor is very lightly tart. Very lightly bready. Very lightly citrus. So it drinks extremely easily. Light in flavor but somewhat extreme in the nature of the flavor. This is a session beer!

A thank you to my cousin for this one. Big, foamy pour. It has a cidery, lemon tartness that grabbed my attention, but is still smooth and light, without a lot of bite or tingle. It is full-flavored and soft on the palate, and would go down very nicely on a summer evening. An excellent version of the style.

Bottle courtesy of Michael. Thank you! Aromas and flavors of wheat, citrus, and subtle stonefruit (apricot and peach). The Riesling grapes definitely come through, adding more fruit nuances then your typical Berliner. Mouthwatering and refreshing. Wonderful fuller body and balanced tartness. Fine, creamy, full carbonation. Great lingering finish of citrus and mild stonefruits. Glad I got to try this! Thank you! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Thanks Northropfrye for sharing this. Pours a hazy yellow with white head. Aromas are lemon, funk, maybe a touch of watermelon bubblegum. Nice sour flavors and a touch of lactose. Good stuff.

Bottle from Dak, thanks man! straw yellow pour, cloudy white head that leaves nice traces of lacing around the edges of my glass. Aroma - herbal, metallic, and lemon citrus, hope this tastes better than it smells. Taste - shizam this is really good, tastes nothing like the aroma which I found to be a bit off putting. Upfront, there is crisp carbonation, once it buckles some nice lemonade citrus comes through, very drinkable...yet another sessionable beer from these guys.

Faint funky aroma more vinous than most Berliner Weiss beers I've had and not as tart. Still quite nice. Thanks GV for this one.
