COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the traditional tart wheat beer of Berlin, Germany. Refreshingly tart, our house lactobacillus strain contributes a citrus tartness that works well with the grain profile from the wheat.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
In short: A bland lemonade-weisse.
How: Tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury VT.
The look: Cloudy off-white body topped by a very small white head. One of the palest beer Ive ever seen.
In long: Nose is a bit tart, lemony, some green bananas. A very light body lacking vivacity. Taste is very much on the light side. There is some timid wheat, some timid lemon juice, some timid green bananas, some timid green apples. A timid tartness. Tasted like a true Berliner Weisse (didnt taste like any souring agents were used) but it was just too timid even by classic 3% Berliner Weisse standard. Very easy to drink (duh!) and somewhat refreshing (duh!) but ultimately unsatisfying. This beer was so boring that its recipe could be used as the screenplay for a new movie starring Nicolas Cage.

AirForceHops (3427) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Draft @Prohibition Pig. Nice hazy, bright yellow color. Thin head. Nose is light wheat and Lemons. Taste is tart lemon, wheat and some hay. Light pucker hits the back of your tongue. Very light body and just the right balance for the style. Lightly funky as it warms. Refreshing drinker.

Sampled on 10/11/2012 at GABF. This Berliner Weisse pours a slightly hazy light yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheaty, citrusy and tart. A medium bodied Berliner Weisse. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Crisp, clean and tart. Decent carbonation. Mildly tart, but nice citrusy flavors. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

mcberko (6880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is both lemon tart and very wheaty. Flavour is very wheaty and only lightly tart with a bit of lemon. The lemony wheat pretty much characterizes this. Very solid and refreshing.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Cidery, wine beer with nicely astringent finish. Yellow cloudy pour very pale. Aroma is yeasty and cider. I sensed n bietjie yeast in the aroma, and much wheat in the light body

Tap @ The Commons... Poured hazy, pale straw/yellow with a white head. Quite vibrant looking. Nose had some lactic acid and yeast musk. Cleaner in the tast with wheat, grass, floral tones and a lactic acid character coming through in the finish. Its getting there, and I trust theyll develop this into a solid Berliner Weisse.
