33cl bottle kindly shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot! Pours pale and pretty clear yellow with a rather small white head. Strange almost sulphuric smell is a little disturbing at first. Strange aroma of minerals, sour fruits and berries and some yeasty notes. Lightly sweet and quite sour with some slightly strange fruity and yeasty flavours. Strange, but quite nice. Probably never gonna be a favourite, but still quite interesting.

Bottle from the brewery. 2.5%. Clear, pale gold. Bits and bobs of a white head. Grainy lemon. Some yeasty, tart, breadiness. Taste is tart, dry, and lightly sour. Clean, fresh palate. Finishes dry and light tart. Nice, crisp Berliner.

witthatsbier (343) - glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle from Valhallas Goat off sales in Glasgow Pours a very light yellow with virtually no head Aroma light grain and not much else Taste is sourish with a little bitter and that,s about it overall very disappointing so called Berliner Weisse Brewers outside the countries where a style became famous should not try to emulate these beers they often fail like this one

JonnyConga (103) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
2.5% bottle from bottle shop in truro uk. Bottled Sep 2013 drank aug 2014. Pours light clear yellow. Looks like cider. Slight head fades. Nose barnyard and citrus and fruit. Quite sour, tart and sharp. Tastes acidic rather than a fruit sourness but I like it. Worry what it might do to my teeth if I drank lots of it. Tasty and refreshing. A very unusual beer compared to what I'm used to. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ragnampiza (586) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUL 15, 2014
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons (Bottled on 04-09-2013). Very pale canary, yellow, pretty clear, with a small, creamy but non persistent white head. Lots of bubbles streaming up. Subtle but powerful nose: all I can get are wet/old clean diapers, salami meat, some lactic presence, almost woody or leather like notes. Some fruitness in the background, mostly raspberries or sour black cherries. Pretty unique. Holy s*it, it is really sour! Like chewing on a lemon slice. Citric, lemony, sharp and pungent taste. Quite extreme, but at the same time very refreshing and thirst quenching. Extremely dry as well. There is a generic milky/youghurty like sensation in the aftertaste. Average to lively carbonation, light body, slightly creamy texture. My first ever berliner weisse so I didn’t really know what to expect, but I’m pleasently impressed. Nice one.

EvilCat (98) - FRANCE - JUL 7, 2014
Bouteille (2,5%- 04/09/13). Kernel (merci Nico). Robe jaune très pale et limpide. Mousse blanche furtive. Nez de petit lait, très légères notes d’arachide. Attaque douce, insipide, puis belle acidité de pulpe de citron. Finale sèche et astringente. Corps léger, effervescence absente. Une bière "rince palais" qui trouve son utilité en dégustation.

This is what I call a real sour one. Nice aromas of citrus fruits, some strawberries and pineapple. Easy going and refreshing with high drinkability. Good one.
