3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the few Berliner Weisse’s I’ve tried that didn’t require some kind of flavor syrup to make it palatable. This actually tastes pretty good on its own. Pours a cloudy, hazy yellow with essentially no head. Lightly floral, grassy aroma. Flavor is very tart, with some fruit esters like you’d expect from a wheat beer, but still quite drinkable as is. That said, I would like to try some with essence of woodruff...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the brewpub. Pours a hazy light yellow with no head. Aroma is lemon, biscuits, some acidity. Taste is a lot of the same, subtle but nice sour. Biscuity. Pretty good, gets better as I drink more.

Balanced beer goodness. Not much aroma here. Orange color with no visible head. Nice carbonation, sour apple, lychee or some other sweet passion fruit. Tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Three Floyd’s station as their pairing beer for the 18th Annual Chicagoland Brewpub Shootout. Dispensed to my fest glass showing a hazed, light gold color, with a quickly diminishing, modest layer of white head foam to a light film and thin ring, and light spots of lacing. The nose was fruity, tart, and citrusy as tangerine & lemon. Light to medium bodied, with lively spritz to the carbonation, the taste was tart, and dry finishing. Very nice, and successfully paired with the pork belly confit, miso aioli, cucumber & chili relish, yuzu, hidden rose apple.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle, bottled on 9-25-2015. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about an inch white head that fizzled away quickly. Not much lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like apricots, lemon peel, green apples, vinegar and grainy/wheat malt. It’s a tart brew, for the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma but with the addition of some minerally earthiness and tropical fruit. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s refreshing and easy to drink. I liked this, the tartness was enjoyable and I thought the flavor in general was good. Now I’m wishing I would have bought another bottle, it’s definitely worth picking up if you’ve never tried it before. $11.49 a bomber.
