Poured a hazy yellow color from the bottle with aromas of tart wheat, grain and some nice lemon. Flavors are light tart lemon with some nice wheat backing, light on the palate enjoyable in the heat. A solid base berliner that I could drink all day and every day.

Bottle thanks to Bacterial. Hazy gold pour with white head. Wheat, lightly tart, bread, fruit. Notably missing the vomit, making this a nice introduction for my family, with whom I am sharing this. Lightly sweet, dry finish, just the slightest tartness -- family all comments it’s like champagne, and I agree. Light body, lively carbonation. Nice beer.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a billowing head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sour wheat, lemon, and mild funk. Taste follows, tart and citrusy with a slightly funky finish. Very simple but that’s what makes it so good!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I open this bottle in celebration of becoming a top five August Schell Brewing rater!
Pours a very pale hazy yellow with a big head that rises and falls fairly quickly but the steady stream of tiny effervescent bubbles quickly rising up the glass is something to behold.
The aroma is complex it has the wheaty and yogurty aspects of a Berliner Weisse, but it’s got some rich funk, some citrus peel, & some apple to it. It’s pungent and has a very nice bouquet.
The flavor has a lemony sourness and is very tart all around. It hints at some fruity apple like sweetness, but is dominantly dry. The woodiness is subdued but very pleasant it’s got a nice fruity apple & tart citrus character. It’s bright but funky, enjoyable through and through.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Hopscotch, (mucho ty ’cause I would have never ever bought this on my own)... Corked bottle pouring a straw pissy golden hue with a lasting fizzy head in my Berliner Weisse bowl. Well just on principle I had low expectations of this considering the brewery. Nicely tart (green apple and meyer lemon) but not overpowering, lightly funky and husky with a dry woody finish. Sprite über refreshing palate fitting of the genre.
Damn, the world is off it axis. I really like this and easily the best beer I ever had from Schell.
