Excellent Berliner Weisse. Fizzy carbonation on a yellow pour. Aroma is lemon, citrus, light crackers. Very effervescent and refreshing. Flavor is similar with a nicely balanced tartness. Great beer.

750ml bottle. Pours a peachy yellow color with two fingers of fizzy foam that disappears quickly. Aromas are clementine, ginger and lemon with a very subtle hint of earthy cereal malt. On the palate its an easy drinker with some good bubbles on the front end leading to a big cereal malt backdrop brightened by big ginger flavors, lactic sourness and a bit of a lemon water mineral finish that is quenching and clean.

Pouring at the Night of the Funk. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big ginger, lemon grass on the nose. Tart, more heaps of ginger, a touch of sweetness. Tastes a bit like a shandy, bright acid, crisp, clean. Very refreshing. Long ginger and light lemon tartness on the finish. Almost too much in terms of the flavors, but it’s still tasty. Not sure I’d be able to drink a pint of it though.

Night of the Funk 2012. Grassy dirt socks with isovaleric acid and phenolic tannic notes. Ugh.

Night of the Funk 2012. This one was a hoppier version, with a decent grass aroma and moderate funk throughout.

Pours hazy gold into a bowl. Head quickly dissipates to nothing. Sweet honey and ginger aromas. Sharp with tart summer fruit and sweet honey upfront turning to hay and ginger in the lasting lactic finish.

A hazed blonde weisse with a thin white head. In aroma, smooth lactic malt with seltzer, lightly pungent, nice. In mouth, a smooth sour weisse with light gueuze notes, oily mouthfeel, very good. Tasted at Drink Craft Beer Summerfest Fest, July 14 2012.

Bottle. Potent ginger and pine presence, lightly creamed wheat, lemon sourness and some light wet hay. Ginger dominates the typical berliner weiss characteristics. Nice lemon sourness is a nice touch.

Bottle. Cloudy straw yellow not much head or lace. strong sharp lemon grass citric and some grasses. Flavor is very sweet tart lemon and ginger. it is dry in the front and mouthwatering tart on the middle and finishes with some yeast tickle. Sticky feel. This is a very refreshing and good Berliner weisse if a bit sweet. one of the best American attempts I’ve had.

Pours yellow. Nose is lemons and ginger with mild tartness. Flavor is refreshing but tastes like ginger ale with lemon juice. Light and refreshing. Really drinkable and refreshing. Tastes way too much like ginger to me.
