3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy beige body......... no cap. So very light. Memories of citrus, orange, grape, dry, and light. Complety clean aftertaste. I can truly hit the wheaty malt. Buble gum! Tartness builds........ lingers. Does sour equal yum like the bottle says, sure why not.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle from 2011.
Aroma is acidic and citrus forward with quite a bit of lemon character but also some tart orange. Light tropical fruit notes with a moderate wheat character.
Pours a fairly clear, pale yellow straw color with a moderately sized, frothy, white head that recedes to a small layer then persists throughout. No lacing or legs.
Flavor is fairly acidic with a strong lactic note. Moderate lemon notes with a touch of lime. Moderately strong, somewhat stale wheat character. Light tropical fruit notes with a hint of barnyard in the finish. A bit of a mineral character in the finish as well.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderately high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice Berliner. Nice refreshing tartness with some good wheat notes. I donít think the age helped this though as the wheat has become a bit stale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml capped bottle pours a hazy straw color with a finger of white head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is orange zest with hints of yeast and citrus. Taste is an orange zesty bitterness with a lemon sourness and spicy hop bitterness with very little sweetness. Light bodied with little carbonation. Not something that I particularly enjoyed. Disappointed with this one.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This one is at least 4 years old, been in my basement with the original cap! The aroma is sweet light candi sugar and light tart. The body is pretty clean with a balanced lightly sweet wheat note immediately followed by a pleasant clean balanced tartness. So simple yet so delicious in the tradition of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orangish brown from the bottle with quickly dissipating bubbly white head that leaves little to no lace. Aroma is funky lactic wheat with a hint of lemon in there, Belgian yeast on the back end. Taste is like a funky Belgian wit, a hint of acidity, dry and heavy on the wheat. Not bad, definitely to the style guidelines, but was hoping for a little bit more.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This light gold beer has a very pleasing aroma of green apple. It has a tart flavor but the wheat notes really come through.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a fresh lemon color with a easily aggravated foamed cap. The look alone looks refreshing. A very funky dank smell. A tart grassy smell that I simply canít get enough of. The taste is spot on with a very fresh feel on the tongue and not too much carbonation. A nice lemon warhead type flavor which I love. Also a fresh grassy note in the taste that relaxes the mouthfeel. A dry finish that closes it out besides the sourness thatís left on the tongue and lips. Very refreshing an quenching. And at 3.1% you can literally drink this stuff all day. Great stuff.
