3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Sweet Grass Dairy. Hazy straw color with a small bubbly white head. Funky yeast, grainy wheat, lactic acid, lemon peels and hints of saltiness. Prickly sour flavor with lemons, yeastiness, pale grains and bits of a mineral character coming through in the back. Mild tartness and pretty refreshing in 95 degree heat.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on tap.
Pours a nearly clear straw yellow with not much of a head or lacing for that matter.
Aroma of pineapple along with some bread and a little bit of corn.
There is a huge rush of tartness upon the first sip followed by a big rush of corn and cooked beans. It almost reminded me of a baked bean like flavor but it strangely works quite well here. Mouthfeel is nice and light with an extremely dry finish that is appropriate for the style.
Overall, a very impressive Berliner Weiss and one of the better ones I have had. I enjoy it without any syrup as the flavor of the beer alone is wonderful.

Pours hazy pale yellow with no head. The nose is lemony wheat grass and lacto sourness. The taste is high sour medium sweet and low bitter. The texture is crisp and clean, light body and a long finish.

Nice Berliner Weisse with bright aromatics and a solid tart palate. Tried with raspberry syrup as well which gave it a nice red hue with a pretty pink top.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draught. Pours a clear yellow with a white head that is gone in seconds. Aroma is light vinegar, citrus, sea salt and a surprisingly large amount of malt sweetness that lingers after the sour characteristics. Flavors are similar to aroma, with salt and citrus punching first, then a very light vinegar edge and a big does of heavy bread or cracker flavors. Mouthfeel on this is decent when itís cold as it is light and effervescent but as it warms it becomes heavy and clunky and the opposite of refreshing.

Simply not a good beer for the style. This is like if 312 had sex with a 2% lambic. There is a distinct wheat note that totally cuts through the beer and mellows with each gulp. Swishing helps bring out the tartness but this one is just like a 2 year oldís berliner.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light yellow with a relatively thick white head. Nose is a little sour and quite grainy, yet seems a little dirty. Taste is a little sour with a bit of citrus, but not much else to it. Meh. Not my style.

Shared with Kristen to celebrate the arrival of her diploma! Milky yellow pour with soapy white thin layer of head. Excellent tart lemonade and white vinegar aroma. Flavor is like watered down lemonade. Not exceptionally sour, but definitely with a healthy dose of lacto and tartness. Very refreshing.

750mL bottle, capped, Pours bright yellow color, thin white fizz. Very active carbonation. Lemon tartness in the nose, along with a touch of wheat. Mouthfull of Brett, Lacto-b, and wheat malt. A touch of tropical fruit, maybe pineapple and a salt water character. Kinda like mineral water. Very tart, very thirst quenching. Finishes with a flavors of straw and heavy barnyard. The brettanomyces is heavier than the lactobacillus in the finish. Thin and light, very low in alcohol. With the complexity of the tartness & wheat, it needs to be low in ABV otherwise it will overwhelm your palate worse than a Berliner-Weisse already does... Very impressed for the style!
