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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
poured by the brewer at braukunst live 2014. dishwater yellow with a persistent thin head; full-on aroma of cobwebs, blue cheese and garbage juice; loads of sourness, yoghurty with a salty tinge. now iím left wondering if this is a typical american berliner weisse (i.e. 10 times more sour than the berlin version)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Whoa. Looks like the GABF batch was a dud. The one I had today at the brewery was awesome! The brewer admitted previous batches were a bit off with butyric acid. They switched to a new maltster for their sour mashes, and itís drastically improved. Iíd say so. This one pours a nice yellow color with a disappearing head. The aroma is very clean and tart with some with some lemon, bread crust and light notes of yogurt. The flavor has a perfect amount of fruity, citric acidity with light background notes of lacto. No nail polish remover or bile here. Very clean and pleasant.

Something must have gone wrong. Never had a berliner weisse like this before and hope to never experience it again.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
GABF 2013. Pours a light hazy yellow appearance with little head. Fucken huge stomach bile, lemon, garbage aroma. Flavor is only stomach bile. Obnoxious, sour, and acidic. Really bad. Didnít know if I was the only one that hated this beer, but evidently womencantsail got a similar impression at GABF.

On tap @ GABF. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Wow, what a nose...bile/puke and cheese. Incredibly sour lemon and white vinegar. The flavor is sort of acetic. Lemon, cheese, milk and puke. This is just not good.
