Itís easy to see why this beer scores so low overall, mainly because people canít take the extreme sour flavoring. Just tastes like sour apples straight up. And I like sour flavoring. But it is better with the syrups. tjthresh (1871) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Best before 0307. Extreme effervesence. Huge white fizzy head that fade as quickly as it is formed. Hazy straw yellow. All that can really be said about the aroma is sour wheatiness. Medium sourness, vinegar, and wheaty. Light body, thin feel, fizzy across the tongue. Berliner weissa is one of the question mark styles for me. I question why any body would enjoy this bee. tlitt2 (58) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 13, 2005
I noted the strange aroma like many other tasters. Smells like white grape juice. Slight tingle when first touches your lips. Upfront very sour, mellows as it finishes into something sweeter. Like drinking "warheads" candy in a beer. This is myt first of this style. I liked itís cutting acidity- quite refreshing. But, not much going on besides that. Still, a very interesting brew, hopefully I can get a hold of others in this style. Sigmund (7394) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2005
330 ml bottle, bought in Bier Spezi Hamburg. ABV is 2.7%. I had no raspberry syrup available, so I drank it straight. Extremely pale straw coloured, nearly clear, just a very slight haziness. Enormous to moderate head. Unusual funky aroma - sea water / seaweed, notes of barnyard, horseblanket and rotting citrus. Very sour / acidic flavour, but not as extreme as I expected. Lemony notes. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel despite the acidity. Refreshing, but I find very little complexity here. Moderate lemony aftertaste. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Bottle from Springslicker. Pours a clear light golden color with a nice sized white head that fades to a small layer of bubbles over the liquid. Aroma is a little funky, slight mustiness. LIght bodied, decent carbonation. Light amounts of acidity, some dryness. Moderate wheat beer qualities in flavor. Very moderately puckering. Fair beer.

bottle.. poured a light hazy gold color with a large head. Aroma is a bit sour with some green apple and wheat. Flavor is also green apple sour with some maltiness and a bit of wheat. Light body with good carbonation. ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - NOV 2, 2005
Bottled. Looks very "Wit Bier" in apperance. Somewhat malty aroma that surprised me a bit as it wasnít exactly what I was expecting. Taste is a bit subdued but has notes of wheat, apples and sourness (but NOT sour apples). Aftertaste is sharp and lingering. SpringsLicker (3617) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Clear medium yellow body with an average sized white head.
Funky sour aroma, soapy.
Lightly sweet flavor is overpowered by the acidic sourness that lingers on the back of the tongue. Very thin palate, almost no body whatsoever.
With raspberry Himbeer syrup.
The syrup brought some balance to this and added complexity, sweetness and some fullness that it needed. The rating is for the beer without the syrup, however. LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 30, 2005
other than being insulted by the waiter who brought it to me ("you know this is like a kidís beer over there, right?") it wasnt that bad. without the syrup, practically tastes like club soda. virtually flavorless. with the red syrup, it was oh so sweet.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. How can this possibly score under 3??? Very pale yellow with dissipating head. Aroma of green apple, lemon, wheat, with a milky note (presumably the lactate). Spritzy in the mouth with a splendid lactic sourness. Tart, puckering finish, again with that hint of milk. Delicious and refreshing.
