Went through two cases of this stuff. Really nice light lactic character with a bit of lemon and noticeable wheat. Dry and extremely refreshing.

A simple, yet great beer. This isn’t my favorite style, but it is my favorite style for sitting and drinking on a hot day when you’re really thirsty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Nice yellow beer, no sediment, and fizzy white head. Smells tart and Belgian like. Taste is nice and tart. Very smooth though. Great beer

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
