2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Harris.
Can you say biggest disappointment from Bellís, ever? I was pumped to try a berliner weisse from kalamazoo, but wow did they underperform.
Aroma was next to nothing at draft temperature with possibly a notion of hops and citrus, mostly grains coming through here.
Body was soft and fleeting. Hard to find descriptors here, mostly watery grains is what I remember.
WHERE IS THE ACIDITY!?!? Every other berliner I have had makes me pucker at the thought of it. That is my understanding of the style and Oarsman did not follow through.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Highly drinkable, very light lactic acid, spices connect everything well. Perfect for summer.
But would definitely put it in witbier style.

From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. At lunch, after futsal match, with fried fires + eggs + swordfish. Its sourness is pretty soft, probably balanced due to the wheat. Not unpleasant but maybe a bit flat. A bit watery feeling

Aroma is very clean, floral/ fresh water. Character is light with savory and tartness balanced. Some citrus flavor. Itís like if you made the smell of the ocean into a beer.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Itís a fine beer. Middle of the road. The elusive independent voter they are all pandering for. This is inoffensive conversation at the dinner party. You are meeting your partners parents for the first time and playing it extra safe. Telling stories that donít mention money or politics or anything really. This is the new star wars film, familiar, pleasant enough. This beer gets a nostalgic pass as it reminds me of the many times I have gotten drunk yet also doesnít feel like much of a commitment. I could drink this in the morning even and likely get through it without accidentally uttering the god damn phrase, íyou canít drink all day if you donít start in the morning.í You know what? Once, I saw an artist talk, he was crafted, his work straight lines. I left feeling I hadnít wasted my time yet I wasnít all that inspired either. I went home and reviewed my fridge. I ate a frozen potato patty, leftover rice and stir fry, a salad. The whole thing tasted fine. It all went down just fine.
