3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: toast with a slight nuttiness, plus the wood funk. A little subdued but nice.
T: nice sourness and funk, perhaps a little rhubarb, a bit of toasted malt on the finish (tobacco perhaps?)
M: good carbonation, dry finish
O: really nice fusion of a Berliner Weiss and a marzen, with an American spin with the funk.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy brown with large off white head. Aroma of tartness, CO2 burn, some citrus notes, and a hint of malt. Light body, moderate to heavy tartness, some light malt notes, and a dry finish. The ’marzen" hybrid didn’t fully pay off in this weisse.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle shared by Ryan. Unfiltered tan-brown body. Pronounced new school US sour tones. The aroma has some sour lemon which dominates the whole beer. Thin on the palate, most of the malt seems eaten up and thinned down. Cheesy lacto tones. Lacks real depth. OK, for a sour drink, but a boring end product.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled March 2014. Pours a dark brown/red with fizzing carb. Nose is cherries, wheat, musky funk and vanilla. Taste is initially mouth puckering cherries and a sweaty musky funk. Wheat heavy with some oak and caramel. Less berliner and more oud bruin. Pretty unique stuff.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Supposed to be a Berliner, packaged as a Märzen. It is neither. Brown pour. Huge light tan head. Huge funky aroma with some copper notes. Taste is a carbonic bite mixed with a very tart sourness. No bready/yogurt notes as is commonly expected in BWs. I’ll pass on this one in the future.

From a bottle, pours light brown with fizzy head. Very light and fizzy mouthfeel. Sour, Brett evident. Liked very much.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a near clear light brown with a near white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains backed by light sour fruits and a hint of wheat. Flavor has nice light sour fruits with a touch of acid and earthy grains underlying.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasting at Ferris’, corked bottle
Light bodied, caramelly, sourish, lemony, a bit fruity and footy; sourdough character.
A bit purposeless.

Brown color with a quickly falling, towering head. Some tart wheat aroma. A hint of mustoness. Light smokiness in the flavor. Musty, wheat, and old wood.somewhat grainy and an almost dry caramel character. Dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of feet, earthy notes, and light graininess. Flavour is very strange, with notes of rye, dark crusty bread, and light spiciness. What a strange hybrid beast this is. Not like a Berliner at all, but a dark, earthy grainy wheat beer. Not too bad, but very strange.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Funky grains, toast, rye and burnt notes with a weird tartness. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Tart and toasty malts with some weirdness. Odd all around but quite tart and interesting.
