Bottle at the Bottle Shop with Harry. Hazy gold lasting white head. Sourish aroma. Papery apple aroma. Not a great beer. Some sour lemon in the flavour. Not my favourite. Ok ish.

Bottle at the Bottle Shop, Bermondsey. A quite unique, well-balanced honey-ish wheat beer, only suffering a bit from a nasty aroma. Taste id very grainy, sour, fruity. very full-bodied for such a low-abv’er.

Nice Berliner... Pours hazed straw yellow with full white head. Nose is tart and straw. Clean. Flavor is tart and clean, citrus and refreshing. Low alcohol, just like I’d want. Pretty drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy, murky golden white color. Very unappealing look. The nose is very interesting, as its tart with some brett, but the lacto is also fairly present with a dash of lemon. The mouth is modestly tart with lots of lacto notes. A bit too overpowering perhaps. Despite the tartness, it is highly quaffable and light, but the lacto finish is a tad too much. Overall I like this, but wouldn’t drink a ton of it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours straw, lively carbonation, big head that dissipates quickly. Lemon, yeasty aroma. Upfront taste makes your butt cheeks pucker, super tart with hints of lemon and green apples. Interestingly, after the tart I can taste a slight sweetness, which balances it nicely. Great for session beer, but makes for record breaking belches.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance- big foamy bubbly head that lasted a little bit with minimal lacing (almost none). Cloudy golden yellow hue.
Smell- pungent, barnyard, funky (in a not bad way). The lactobacillus and brett are uber present. Sour’s not a smell but the aroma hints at a good bit of tartness to come.
Taste- more tangy than tart. Yeasty but not biscuity. Sour fruits (green apples, lemons). Like unsweetened lemonade.
Mouthfeel- light, clean, crisp.
Overall- interesting. Haven’t had enough of this style so reluctant to weigh in heavily. Overall, enjoyed the experience and look forward to trying more Berlinerweiss. Would only recommend to a true enthusiast, or maybe someone who thinks he/she "doesn’t like beer."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle to snifter. Hazy straw hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is lactic, straw, corn, slight diacetyl. Mouthfeel is nice with medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a nice tart following and clean finish. Overall this is a decent Berliner but nothing to get excited over.

Highly volatile nose. Sulphur and citrus. Very tart, slight sweetness. Interesting. Not worth the money though.
