4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at kickbacks, poured a light golden yellow color with aromas of tart strawberries, light sourness, and some wheat. Flavors are light tart strawberries and light wheat. Light and refreshing, glad this was still on when I arrived, a very nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Got this on tap 05.22/2016. Poured hazy with gold with a thin white head. Aroma is earthy with strawberry notes. Taste is mildly tart with definite strawberry notes. Offensive band aid flavor in the background. I like berliner weisse as a style, but there’s something off about this one. Could just be age.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Case N Keg in Meredith, NH. Hazy yellow; after the purple pink blueberry I was expecting something a bit brighter. Artificial strawberry syrup, wheat. Mildly tart. watery. Significantly inferior to its blueberry cousin.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Kinda bad. Pale hazy light yellow. Aroma is unripe strawberry, light wheat, mineral water. Taste is watered down and boring.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My Bottom Line:
Soft lactic acidity, unripe strawberries and moist wheat wade within this uncarbonated mess.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-Headless, murky and opaque, this is one of the ugliest Berliner Weisses I’ve ever seen.
-Mouthfeel is completely flat. Were they trying to brew chicha without corn or what?
-I can even imagine varnish somewhere in there. Or is it my imagination playing tricks since this brew is so unpalatable?
-I usually enjoy Smuttynose quite a bit, but this one was either mislabeled or it was a complete miss (for me).
On tap at Tilt, in South Burlington.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4 oz pour on draft in a wine glass at B Side. Hazy yellow with off-white head. Aromas of strawberries, floral notes, light wheat. Tastes of light strawberries, floral notes, light barnyard funk, wheat. Medium-light body with a semi-dry finish. Pretty light on the tartness, I suppose this could be a good one for someone just getting into sours.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at World Of Beer. Pours a slightly cloudy pale straw color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of strawberries and wheat. Light body with flavors of herbal wheat and strawberries. The finish is mildly tart with a strawberry aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the growler NYC. Hazy orange color. Slightly tart with a nice hit of berries without being overly sweet. Not bad

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy orange into a snifter. Super elastic bubble plastic and mild strawberry aromas. Sharp flowery chemicals upfront turning to strawberry and then quickly to dry, dusty vegetal muck.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours straw orange with a white head. Aroma is strawberry, peach and vinegar. Flavor is sour wheat with mild dry strawberry. There’s a plastic like flavor throughout that I just can’t enjoy.
