2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose is wild yeast, sour fruit. Taste is relentlessly sour. Some minor hints of cherry syrup, bread and seltzer. Good dry palate. Not the most flavorful Berliner weisse. I could see the appeal of putting syrup in this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber courtesy of ericjones over at craftbeerkc.com. The pour is hazed yellow orange with a small white head. The aroma is hay, wheat, soft tart along with a bit of funk. The taste is a clean acidic tart sourness, balanced with the hay and wheat of the nose. All very clean and bright. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft natural carbonation and the clean tart finish. Not a very traditional Berliner Weisse, but tasty and well made. Thanks Eric.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours straw golden, fairly clear, with a fizzy eggshell head. Nose of damp cellar, rustic wheat, some lemon. Sort of sweet, but quite tart. Light to medium bodied, active, puckering and drying, finishing with a blast of tartness. Pretty hilarious and legitimately tart. Refreshing yet almost toward overbearing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a head that fades quick. Aroma is tart. A litle apple and berry. Lots of carbonation. Light mouth. Taste is tart and dry. Very refreshing. For a 3 Floyds beer, this isnít overly done or in your face.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewpub. Light cloudy pour with little to no head. Aroma is composted grass and sweet berries. Taste is tart, very fruity, acidic, and a sour finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle pours a clear bubbly golden orange with small white head and no lacing. Aroma is fruity, with discernable grape juice and lemon, perhaps even some tart cherries. Taste is sour, although tempered with a bit of grassiness. Body is light with a refreshing mouthfeel and lively carbonation. This is far from my favorite Three Floyds, and not even one of the best Berliner Weiss. Itís too sour for my taste. True to Three Floyds, itís different and bold for the style, but not one Iíll try again.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Look - Light, bright orange. See through. Little to no head, okay, my bottle had zero head, after 10 seconds, therefore, no lace.
Smell - Sour. Tart. Sparkling grape juice smell.
Taste - Slightly sour but more toward the taste of a sparkling grape juice. Alcohol is very faint which is why I say sparkling grape juice as opposed to wine.
Feel - Carbonation bubble. Smooth. Dry.
Overall - I like the faint sour taste for those wanting a sour without crying. This is not the Three Floyds I would buy again, but always worth a taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6.5 percent bottling. Pours a clear gold and red turning it into an orange color with no foam head. The aroma is of pale malts, wheat, some brett funk, sweet fruit tones, and a medium tart intensity. While tasting I noticed a subtle dryness, acidic grape flavor, a nice malted grain character, mild carbonation, mild hop bitterness, weak tart, and some citrus lemon. The finish is good, nothing lingers long or has a potent intensity. Overall this was a pretty good summer drinker.

22oz from the brewery. No head whatsoever. Plenty of carbonation. Strong tart nose. Looks very wheat like. This is intensely sour. They donít do anything halfway at 3 Floyds. I like it. Iíd imagine many wonít. Oddly, I donít taste any cherry that you expect on a sour. It is a lemon sour.

Bomber at GGW 2015. Fruity and tart with some bile flavor and aroma. Got worse as it warmed up.
