4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my very favorite beers, and perfect for the late spring/early summer. Even with the very gentlest a pours, a massive pillowy head pushes out of the glass. If your glass has one of those little laser-etched bubble-generator things (whatís the actual name for those?) in the bottom, donít be surprised if the thick, foamy head continues to billow out into a cone of froth towering over the glass.
The beer itself is golden-straw colored, almost with an extremely faint tinge of emerald green. It smells tart, very lightly grassy. The taste is crisp and clean, slightly tart and a bit sweet, maybe a bit lemony. Mouthfeel is light and lively with carbonation, coupled with acidic sourness. Overall, you could almost liken it to drinking a Mountain Dew in its palate and tartness, but obviously it is quite different in its flavor. Very drinkable, very refreshing, delicious, and sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12fl oz bottle poured into an English pint. Clear sparkling gold with a modest white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor is a blast of sour.
Holy crap! I almost spit this out. My girlfriend poured this for me for a blind rate. I was not expecting that. Still, even after several sips, itís incredibly sour. I didnít like this at first but it grew on me. Not a bad Berliner- never thought i would say that.
1. GF knows I am not a fan of Berliner weiss.
2. Donít give anyone a Berliner weiss blind. Ever.
3. Seriously. Who does that???
4. OK, do that if you want to laughÖ and youíre an ass.
5. For real, I wish I had thought to do that.

2016 bottle. Aromas of white grapes, light malts, sweet corn, faint straw. Hazy golden pour with a foamy frothy white head. Flavors of white wine, chardonnay, tart grapes, white bread. Slight tart semi-dry pallate. The smoothest Berliner Weisse Iíve had. Not my favorite style but well done.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a light golden hue with a good amount of head. Smelled of sweet wheat and tasted wonderful with a good amount of carbonation. This is the best beer I have reviewed so far.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very cloudy very light yellow pour, fairly effervescent, quarter inch or so of crisp white head. Aroma has subtle fig, strawberry, raspberry, some subtle waxy yeast. Average carbonation, frothy light mouthfeel and a slight bit tart, finished very crisp and dry. Flavor of tart fruits like raspberry, Apple and pear, lemongrass, hint of wheat.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Discount Liquor, Milwaukee, WI. Yellowish-orange pour with a pillowy white head. Aroma of white wine, barnyard, and damp leather. Taste is pleasantly sour with fresh lemons and white grapes adding the acidic component while the underlying wheat balances the overall flavor. Perfect as a summer beer but it also works on this warm winterís day. Easily surpasses any other Berliner Weisse I have tried.
