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.

blklab2007 (1940) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle poured a bright golden color with a thick two finger white head that retained very well. Aroma has tart wheat, grains, straw, and dust. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has a mild tartness, sour wheat, lemon pulp, and straw. Not as aggressive as a lot of berliners but is very drinkable.

Pour is transparent pale straw with a fairly tight egg white head. Nose is lemon, lacto, nice grain behind and grassy through the back. Taste is less lacto, stronger lemon note. Tart finish, grain and yeast less prevalent. Assertive carbonation and light silky body. Solid feel

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Aroma: lots of lemon, some sour apple, light malts and faint hints of vanilla. Appearance: pours a straw color, very slight haze, white head dissipates within a minute or so to a thin film of bubbles, some spotty lacing on the glass. Taste: lemon acidity is balanced by a touch of sweetness and light cracker malt notes. Sour apple as well, acidity is medium, definitely present but not overwhelming. Very refreshing, with a nice crisp finish. Palate: lighter body, medium carbonation, effervescent with a semi-dry finish. Overall: really great Berliner Weisse, thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Nice yellow beer, no sediment, and fizzy white head. Smells tart and Belgian like. Taste is nice and tart. Very smooth though. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (465) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Light straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is vinegar, straw, acid, hat, farmhouse. Mouthfeel is great with light body and high carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a really nice tartness and CO2 sharpness in the following. A slight puckering & dryness in the finish. Overall, this is a fantastic brew!

Dfonorow (1346) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pour is hazy yellow with a quickly fading white head. Aroma is faint with notes of yeast, sour grapes, and green apples. Flavor is very acidic with notes of apple peel, tartness, and wheat. Refreshing, but not my favorite style.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle:   Pale yellow, lively carbonation, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Tart wheaty nose.   Moderate bitter wheatiness on the tongue.   Starts out with a very slight berry tone, but quickly vanishes.   Not as tart or dry as other examples, this one is a bit more subtle.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Soft finish, a little tart and dry.   Cleaner than most, very good example, just a little lighter than others in that its not as tart or dry.   Thanks Bob!

12 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a hazy / cloudy pale golden with a medium white head. Nose is quite light with subtle notes of lemon, hay and wheat. Flavour is very citric, bringing out mouth-puckering lemon, along with wheat and straw. Mouthfeel is like that of champagne, with a very lively, carbonated one. Great stuff, but seems a tad overrated to me.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2014
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a four finger thick (including one above the rime of the glass), pale off-white colored head. The beer is a straw-gold hue that shows a clear, bright yellow-gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma is nicely tart, and has a hay like grain character. Bright lemon like notes with an almost tart apple like edge to it.

The beer has a solid tartness to it that has a nice edge to it without being overly sour. Dried straw, touches of pale cracker, and just fresh threshed field of grain type character. This has a nice prickly carbonation to it that works well with the light body; this is definitely a quaffable beer.

This is nice and clean like a Berliner should be. A good beer to be drinking cold by the pool or at a picnic during the summer all afternoon. Two bottles of these disappear faster than than I could wish for.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12oz bottle served in a DFH shaped pint glass 07/13 A - Pale golden color with some haziness. Hefty white head with strong staying power. Sparkling lacing generously coats the glass. S - Chalky wheat, earthy dusty hay, but in a clean way, lactic tartness with lemons, dry yeasty bread, floral, T - Moderate tartness upfront, acidic lemon twang, with a soft dry wheat background, white pepper, dry woodiness, vinous white grapes, hints of dried bananas, M - Soft light body, moderate lush carbonation lifts it up quite a bit. tart and dry finish. Very well done! Hits all the marks with flying colors. Great lactic aroma with plenty of tartness on the palate. This one has enough acidity to burn he teeth a bit. Worth seeking out.
