spilledpint (341) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2013
I’ve waited three years to drink this beer again. Ar: Fresh lemon zest, mild funk, really refreshing and inviting. Ap: Pours a crystal clear light gold with a frothy white head. Great lace. T: Light lemon zest flavor up front, pretty dry up front and powerfully tart on the finish. P: Assertive carbonation and a lightish body make this really refreshing. O: Wonderfully refreshing, aromatic, big tart finish. This is a great beer.

Bottle thanks to hopscotch. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is sour, lemon, wheat. Taste is mostly lemon with some sweetness to balance it out. Light palate and a crisp finish. Very nice, refreshing beer.

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, big thanks/credit to the Paulometer for supplying a beer he had already rated, 08/04/14. Hazed golden yellow with a moderate off white covering which retains. Nose is tangy fruit, orange peel, apricot, peach yoghurt, spice, vanilla essence. Taste comprises tangy peach, orange pith, tarte mandarin, straw, light wood tinge, faint acidity. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp close. Solid refreshing ’Linner pick me up!

Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. Thanks to Paul. Lightly hazy pale gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp. Light lemony sourness, touch of sherbet. Light finish with the lemon lingering on.

Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Paul. Pours clear yellow with a froth white head. The nose has some ripe lemon, a bit of pale bread. Light sweet flavor with mild cereal, further lemony tang, faint salty touches. Light bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Very clean to finish, more tangy lemons, light citrus rind, salt, pale bread. Quite nice.

Perfect for the style. Simply one of the, if not THE, best Berliner Weiss style beers I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying.

Scopey (5548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Bottle via trade. It pours hazy pale gold with a thick white head. The nose is soft, doughy, grain, barnyard, lemon peel, white grape and yoghurt. The taste is crisp, tart, lemon sherbet, lime, yoghurt, hay, light barnyard and dough with a dry finish. Light-medium body and effervescent carbonation. Crisp, tart and so very well balanced. Utterly drinkable. A very good example of the style.

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

scoobysnak (328) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2014
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.

blklab2007 (1882) - 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.

cpetrone84 (1202) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2014
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
