This beer is fermented with ale yeast and lactic acid bacteria, giving it a sour flavor. it is usually served with a shot of raspberry or woodruff syrup to cut the sharpness of the lactic acid, so ask for it red (raspberry) or green (woodruff) or even with a shot of chambord

Clarkvv hooked this awesome juice up. No head, no bubbles, and no nonsnese. Smells like lactic acid, fruit, and grass. Taste is pure bliss. Tart and wheaty. Could pound this all day long.

Sampled at GABF on 9/17/2010. This Berliner Weisse pours a slightly hazy light yellow gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is citrusy, fruity and tart. A medium bodied Berliner Weisse. The malts are fruity and tart, nice citrus and lemon. The hops are herbal. Tart, but not mouth puckering. Nice carbonation. Crisp and clean, with a nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

A: The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a finger of white head. S: This one smells very champagne-like. Thereís lots of yeast to it, just like champagne. It does have the requisite tart lemon aroma, but itís also got a bit of a Sweet Tart thing going on. T: The flavor also has plenty of Sweet Tarts to go with all of the lemon and lemon zest. Like the aroma, heavy on the yeast with sort of a champagne and apple cider flavor to it. M: The body is light with medium to high carbonation. O: I always look to try new Berliner Weiss offerings, and this one was certainly an enjoyable one.

Well, I just had this on tap at Novare Res, so maybe it should be unretired. Served in a goblet. Very pale hazy orange with ring and lace. White wine tartness in aroma with a hint of sweetness vanilla. White wine tart with lemon meringue and mild honey sweetness and some lingering grapefruit. Refreshing. Good carbo. Pretty good.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin creamy white head. Aroma has some dough and tart citrus notes...like sourdough. Flavor is tart and lemony...not acidic...very bready/doughy and yeasty. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is bready and tart.

On draft at Novare Res. Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a fleeting touch of fizz... Aromas are slightly sweetened cereal malts, yeasty, tart berry... On the palate its light, refreshing and comes across with a nice quenching mouthfeel despite having a good cereal maltiness that opens up for some clean lemon lime flavors that remind me of malty 7 Up... but in a good way ! Yum nice low abv tart session starter !

Growler consumed on 8/4/06.
Little to no head, which fizzles rapidly in to nothing, leaving no lacing. Unfiltered body is lightly hazy and a very pale, soft peachskin color. Some light bubbles trail upwards.Soft nose, very understated, I guess.
Apples, lactic acid, strong wheat and just a touch of grassiness. Some lemon and lime emerge as it warms, but very reserved even after sitting out for a while.
Tart flavor, fully lactic at the start and then moving in to a clean, dry, nutty wheatiness and very light pils-like malt dryness. Extremely attenuated and well-done. Not worty in the least. Some hard mineral character builds up, but I donít find the lactic acid to overpower in the least. Almost like a mix of plain and vanilla yogurt in terms of strength of the yeast. Spritzy, but relatively quite light on carbonation. Very light body, smooth, even wheaty texture with some lemon on the end. Ridiculously quenching and drinkable (I drank 3 glasses in about 5 minutes).

Light straw color. White head that left very fast. Tart, vinious wheat aroma. Flavor is tart, sour and raw. I have no problem with sourness, but there needs to be something to go along with it. This is just plain sour. Hugely mouth puckering and acidic. Actually something that Iíd rather have a full pint of than just a 3 oz taste. Guite refreshing and enjoyable, but leaves wanting in the depth department.

On tap at the brewpub the morning of Night of the Funk 2010. Pours a light yellow-orange color with a bit of haze. No artificial coloring here, as Amyliz4 and I declined the syrup offerings from the bartender. The nose is really quite nice, bringing a strong lemon component with a bit of citrus and light acid. The flavor brings some wheat and really quite a bit of tartness. There isnít much complexity here; maybe some light lemon and other citrus, but mostly just a strong tartness. Feel is nice with a good sour character and a dry finish. A nice beer, but there wasnít all that much to keep pulling me back. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-14-2010

Tap at lord hobo. Notes of lemon, lime, cream of wheat, spoiled milk. A touch vegetal. Light creamy wheat character with a welterweight sour lemon milk bite. Beer looks almost green with the lighting in this place so who the knows about the apearance score. Seems nice enough. Flavorful, but. Milky vegetal note is a tad offputing. But this was interesting, and after some getting used to was enjoyable.
