3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 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

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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
