2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz poured into a Duvel tulip.
A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head isnít very impressive, a one finger white shade with crap retention. It just fades away into a dinky collar in no time flat, without leaving much (if any) lacing on the glass.
S: Thereís not much sourness here. What this does have, is funk. The stank-ass cheese notes are in full effect here - overpowering a backbone of apple and *maybe* some wheat buried beneath. Another reviewer said ídiapersí and Iím prone to agree with him. The aroma doesnít quite agree with me, though.
T: Wow, this is cidery. There are a ton of apple notes to open this up, with a touch of cheesy funk on the back end. Other finishing notes include some wheat, and a touch of butter. No hints of sourness anywhere. The more I drink it, the less it tastes like a cider and the more it tastes...off. These off notes arenít fully endearing, either.
M: Not quite as lively as Iíd like it to feel - the syrupy body seems to conceal some of the carbonation. Instead of being wickedly drinkable, itís only kind of drinkable - a Berliner should always achieve the former. However, I would call it írefreshingí.
O: Man, Iíve given out a lot of mediocre scores these past couple of days, havenít I? Anyways, Iím 0 for 2 when it comes to Berliners, and this one didnít even have any sourness to it. Instead, this seems like an odd cider - drinkable, yes, but not particularly good. Iíll have to blow more $$$ to really gauge whether White Birch deserves its status as a memetic joke brewery, though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This poured a flay yellow with basically no head. Aroma was of old stale apple juice. Flavor similar, not really tart at all, just weird and bad.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. Aromas of rotten apples and maybe a tad vinegar. Really would think this is apple cider gone bad. Not good. #4/4 in blind BW tasting.

12 oz can. Dirty yellow pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of barnyard, socks and yeast. Even light body with a nice sour finish. Very refreshing summer brew.

can pour..not a very good take on a berliner weisse in my book..not really refreshing with any real good solid sourness behind it at all..glad to try but after this one, you can appreciate that the euros know what they are doing with this style, not this brewery...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Brewery. Aroma is mild yeasty basement aroma, similar to a Kolsch. Appearance is cloudy pale yellow with minimal head and slight lacing. Taste is strong lemony tart/sour with a background of corn chip. Palate is light bodied, thin texture and a long tart finish. Overall, not my style of beer so canít say it was that enjoyable but pretty true to the style.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild sour lemon aroma. Cloudy muck-like yellow body with no head. Zesty lemon sour taste. This is certainly an acquired taste. Once past the sour part itís not bad.
