3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow color with big white head. Aroma is wheaty, with lacto and tart fruits, mostly citrus peel. Taste is wheaty, lightly tart, more lacto and citrus, and a refreshing crisp tart finish. Light-bodied. A good Berliner Weisse with a hint of a bigger wheat body than other examples (probably due to the > 4%). Silky mouthfeel, but with a high crisp carbonation. Great balance. One of the few American Berliner Weisses that I would actually call a Berliner Weisse :D

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from bierpost.com. Pours a cloudy pale yellow/amber with an initially large white head soon dissipating to nothing. Aroma of citrus, spice, wheat, sharp but with a hint of sweet syrup. Medium sourness, masks a medium sweetness which develops as the sour subsides. Body is quite light, texture is thin. Finish is a tart/sweet mix. Whilst not a style I typically favour, I liked it.

Aroma: Lemon, sour, lactic acidity, light wheat malts.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy, light yellow color, foamy white head. Distinctive sour, tart smell, reminds me of wet wood, absolutely authentic. Sour taste, dry, nearly no bitterness. Thin texture, very fizzy carbonation. Light touch of wheat in the aftertaste, the sourness fades slowly away.
Great to see such a good Berliner Weisse from another country, it’s got fairly hard to get such a good Weisse here in Germany.
