Un’ottima berliner weisse interpretata da Wild Beer come una cascata di note acido-citriche e una freschezza genuina e intrigante; leggera e morbida, ideale per iniziare una serata brassicola.

Garrold (1337) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy, pearlescent straw type colour. Thick, lasting head of tight, white bubbles. Handsome. Aroma of just beginning to ferment apple juice. Lots of the lactic thing. Quite grainy. Taste is very dry, and lactic tart. Clean, sharp, crisp palate. There’s a hint of sweetness in there, that fits really well. Crisp, dry finish. Very nice.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 31, 2014
[keg, the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh] Pours a translucent lemon yellow, with a large, puffy white head. Zappy, fresh nose mixed with a dry earthyness. On the taste, lots of apple notes, funky and tart streaks running through, before a dry, earthy finish that leads to a truly sour aftertaste. Runs through the gearbox really nicely [30082014]

spacecube (841) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
330ml bottle, pours a hazy white grape colour with a white ace. Aroma is sour apple, muesli, oat, lemon zest. Very light body, thin texture, lively carbonation. Dry lactic gueze style sourness, but not as sour as some. Finishes dry and a bit grainy. Very good I thought.

nimbleprop (4880) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2014
On tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a cloudy gold with some tight white head. Nose is crazy, shelled sunflower seeds, mild peanut, dried grass. Flavor is like chewing sunflower seeds. I can’t really taste much else. Strange.

vtafro (3437) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Draft. Hazy yellow pour, looks like a Berliner. Lighter Brett and lacto aromas, some tart fruit and wild tones. Flavors aren’t as consistent, tart and a bit astringent.
