Light wheat aroma and lemongrassy with slight sweetness from the strawberry. Cloudy murky shandy looking beer. Taste is slight tart, maybe 1 or 2 of 10. Has lactic sour but some funk as well. Much less sour than a normal Berliner. Almost get a bitter bite from the rubarb. Drinkable beer, but a bad version of a Berliner weisse. Not very impressive. More wheaty, murky and shandy like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(draft @ Tap & Mallet - Rochester, NY) Cloudy gold pour with a fizzy white head. Earthy and dry slightly sour aroma with a nice hint of strawberry and rhubarb. Flavor is dry and tart with more rhubarb than strawberry. Slightly sour at the finish.

Thanks to jwale73 for the bottle! Pours a cloudy orange with an off-white head. The smell is yeast, lactic acid, mild fruit. The taste is bandaids, mild fruit, yeast. The body is very light with active carbonation.

Fare thee well Josh tasting at Bruce’s. Thanks to Leighton. Murky gold beer, pinky cream coloured head. Palate is airy and dry. Dry minerals and dry yeast. Little rhubarb and a little lactose. Somewhat insipid strawberry. Dry finish. Meh!

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle shared in London for my farewell drinks. Cheers to Leighton. Pours murky orange with a small beige cap. Nose is hugely floral and tarty with some light berries and heavy yeast. Taste is tangy, very floral - like lavender, orange juice and more tangy berries. Odd, doesn’t balance well. Just ok

Theydon_Bois (11670) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle shared at Josh’s Farewell Hoorah - thanks to Leigton, 20/02/14. Murky light orange holding reddish hues and topped with moderate off white spotting. Nose us big on plastic and permanent marker, not great here, strawberry shortcake and rhubarb crumble just peeping through, earthy tones. Taste comprises strawberry chews, lightly tartened strawberry, strawberry wins out over rhubarb in the flavour fight, straw, light spice, very subtle acidic tones - just evident. Light body, fine carbonation with a little prickle, semi drying close. Ok Berliner but far from top draw - the nose killed it really!

Scopey (8397) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours murky golden - brownish with a medium white head. The nose is plastic, permanent marker, terpene, barnyard, dirt, Rhubarb and cat litter. The taste is wheat, strawberry, soft red fruit, mild sourness, faint sherbet, stewed rhubarb with a grainy finish. Lightish body and fine, prickly carbonation. Very odd indeed and particularly enjoyable.

Leighton (13405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared in London to celebrate Josh’s final days. Pours soupy, light gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has lots of dirty rhubarb, mild sweat. Light sweet flavor with shortcake, a bit of strawberries and cream, mild strawberry seed bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweetness to finish with ripe strawberries and cream, minimal tartness, white bread. Pretty basic.
