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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fratto (2835) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2015
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.

ccex (1056) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2015
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.

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.

Advocate_Ames (501) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2015
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.

Mittenator (1593) - Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bomber at GGW 2015. Fruity and tart with some bile flavor and aroma. Got worse as it warmed up.

AndyReynolds (1048) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Aroma has a very sour, tartness to it? Soured cherries? Nice malt / wheat backbone with some grassey notes. Palate is a tad too sour for the style, but what does one expect from FFF? Very good

jkwood04 (4642) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 24, 2015
22oz bottle in a cup. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light tartness, some pale malts, light notes of light fruits and green apple, and some hints of funk. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent Berliner but could be more sour.

blklab2007 (2085) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle big thanks to an old friend. Pour has a dark golden color with a thin coating of white head. Aroma has mild tartness, light fruit, grape skins, and some dust. Mouth feel is medium light with low carbonation. Flavor has mild tartness, light fruit, and remains on the sweeter side.

Golden color very bubbly. Smells funky but tastes like lemon and apple. Nice summer beer.
