DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2016
[2/3/16] Draught at Jupiter in Berkeley. Pale yellow. Aroma of pickled vegetables, a bit lemony. Tart flavor, lemony, lactic, pickled vegetables. Quite light-bodied. Not the best Berliner.

mR_fr0g (9220) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Draft at the brewpub. Translucent yellow straw coloured pour with a lasting white froth. Aroma is decent crisp lemon, wheat, grainstore, grain husks. Flavour is composed of tar lemon rind, pucking acid, doughy grains with a hint of funky apple. Palate is grainy, acidic, tangy, highish carbonation. Good Berliner, little hint of funk.

Surprised that this was a sour. Smells quite sharp and has a lemony taste. Leaves quite a dry feeling in mouth. (K)

hayduke (4921) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 29, 2015
This was a draft pour at the brewpub in Sebastopol. Came in the glass straw colored with a white head. Good lacing. Nose of sour lemon,. Medium body. Flavor is sour fruit and citrus. Finishes with a lot of funk. Quite delicious

popery (1993) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 20, 2015
The beer is a pale straw yellow with a small, white, fizzy head. The bubbles dissipate to nothing quickly. The liquid is fairly cloudy. Nice lemony, lacto-tart aroma. Mild vinous note with a bit of oak. Yogurt and tart citrus. Maybe more sour tangerine than lemon. Medium funk. Everything blends well. Taste has moderate to medium tartness. A bit more of the pinot noir barrel comes through. Creamy feel with hints of sweeter fruitiness. Cherries, apricots, peaches and tangerines cut with lime acidity. Some wheaty sweetness and body. This bottle mistakenly sat around in my cellar for maybe six-ish months, and based on other reviews, I think that was a good thing. Rather solid Berliner.

bb (8539) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
Draft. Golden beer with a low off-white head. Light tart aroma. Tart and light grain flavor with light sourness. Medium-light bodied. Tartness/light sourness lingers with light grain.

bhensonb (14078) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Bomber from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours translucent lemony gold with a few temporary bubbles. Aroma is clean with just the slightest of brett notes. Med minus body. Flavor is quite tart and earth/brett with lots of citrus (or something like it) followed by mild sweat sox. Finishes tart, citrus, earth/brett. Other than tart the flavors are relatively mild, but it’s a very pleasant drink. Bet it would be a hit on the Ku’damm. Course they’d probably put a bunch of sugary stuff in it, but ...

Tide (2966) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Draught at City Beer SF. Hazy yellow color, white head. Sour taste with citrus, tart, wheat, grapefruit, acidic notes and grass. Sour finish with citrus, tart and wheat. Very nice berliner weisse, at least the recent batch is very true to the original style and has no off flavors.
