3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at Bavarian Lodge, May 24. Very pale. Big Flats pale. Nose is more zesty than sour, kind of a raspberry note. A first tiny sip is indeed pretty sour, but with a fruity note surrounding it, like there was lipstick on the glass. I don’t claim to be a sour beer expert, but I’ve drunk enough infected homebrews to appreciate a good example, and this is eminently refreshing. Not slammable for sure, but its sourness does make it sessionable in its way. You can’t help but pucker up at some point in the proceedings.
Nice funky nose. The beer starts fresh and sourish, round and refreshing with a nice smooth sourness. Long fresh body, the sourness is there but very refreshing. Complex horse blanket sourness with citrusy parts. Nice. Beerhunter111 (23274) - Beerland, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017

Draught at Torst.
Pours straw yellow.
Aroma of sour white wine.
Sour for a berliner weisse, but no apparent brett, too clean.

In short: A nice old-fashion berliner weisse with extra farmhouse funk. Very good.riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2014
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed with many months of age on it.
The look: Medium-cloudy yellow-blonde body topped by a quickly dissipating white head.
In long: The moderately bretty nose is very farmhouse, horse-blanket and with a base of typical lemony Berliner weisse showing. In mouth the beer is a bit thin (it’s a 3% brew) but it is not watery and the carbonation is appropriately relaxed and thus doesn’t punch holes in the thin body. Taste lets the base Berliner weisse show more than in the aroma. There is the typical lemony-wheaty and moderately acidic classic Berliner Weisse signature. There is also a drity funky farmhouse horse blanket character. This is a dry beer and the tartness is in the low-medium range for the style. This beer is exactly what I expected from the name, a faithful classic style German Berliner Weisse with the funk cranked up a bit. It may sound like I just want to show-off how that I know a lot about beer by using big words, but I really like the taste of Brettanomyces Lambicus hops.
Extremely lemony nose and flavor. Full of both. Chewy funk is there too. Wheat tart lemon well carbed. Well done Berliner. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 3, 2014

Yessss. totally stoked for this beer.
Bottle date: unk
A: Pours a light, light opal ale with haze and soooo much foam. The egg white foam overtakes the globe after about five ounces of pour, and the beer takes about five minutes before this dies down and leaves a thick sheet of the same. No lace.
S: Smells a bit tart with some earthiness and makes me think of warm nights and refreshing beer gardens.
T: Light grain ale with a slight tartness, but this is overwhelmed by the brett. A bit of a mineral finish and some bland grains.
M: Light and nearly flat at this point with the thick soapy finish I associate with heavy Brett.
O: I dig it, but not more than the classic.
