Draft… Berliner Bash on the Bay 2012… Mostly clear, off-white ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is bursting-at-the-seams with key lime and a less substantial undercurrent of extra-pale grains. Light-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Tons of key lime flavor, but almost none of the accompanying acidity. Barely even tangy, this one. Tasty, but a little too sweet for the style. Short, crisp, mildly sweet, key lime finish. Refreshing but lacks sufficient acidity. If this had been served to me in a different setting; up against styles of beer other than Florida Weisses, my rating may have been higher, but then maybe not, because a 3.5 is nothing to sneeze at. Well constructed, but fairly boring as far as Florida Weisses go.
Berliner Bash 2013. Moderate lime and acidity with a touch of wheat and grain. Quite light. deyholla (11900) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Sampled at the Cajun Cafe Fall Fest. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is very creamy with a light tart lime note with underlying cookie, graham cracker and a hint of musty wheat. Flavor starts a touch thin up front with light tart lime with growing cookie and graham cracker and the lime comes out a bit more in the finish. jcwattsrugger (12507) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2012

(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of weed, lime, and grass. Flavor of lime, yeast, and minerals with a moderately dry finish. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2012
A little on the thick side, some sweet lime but not as sour as I would like. Has a slight thick maltiness to it that I would not usually associate with a Berliner. illidurit (2347) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 13, 2012
