Still has the white grape quality of the original NG Berliner but with a more sweet, sort of cereal quality in the mid-palate. Very very good.

delnoche (501) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - MAY 26, 2016
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, it’s incredibly sour. I didn’t 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. Don’t give anyone a Berliner weiss blind. Ever. 3. Seriously. Who does that??? 4. OK, do that if you want to laugh… and you’re 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 I’ve had. Not my favorite style but well done.

Blairgus (3992) - California, USA - APR 2, 2016
2 Apr 2016, bottle. pale yellow and faintly hazy. nose is sweet, light lemon. crisp grape must, light lemon juice. pretty good on its own and would probably go well with berliner syrup.

GranvilleTim (1840) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon mainly. Taste is tart, little puckering. Very dry. Grain aftertaste is present but not dominating. Great lacing.

BuckyNBeer (48) - Wausau, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2016
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bwa5879 (879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2016
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.

zizzybalubba (1766) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2015
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 winter’s day. Easily surpasses any other Berliner Weisse I have tried.

alobar (3408) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Straw yellow pour with white head. Aroma of wheat, grapes, and hint of tartness. Wheat flavor with white grape, and just a hint of tartness. Very nice beer.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a pale hazy gold with nice foamy white head. Aroma is lemon, yeast, floral on the nose. Taste is a nice mild tartness with flavors of lemon, pear, grapes, grass, sour funk. Overall very good for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
