750mL bottled 2016, shared by AdamC on 7/7/17. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2017
Light pink-straw golden with a moderately-high clarity and a tan-beige head showing moderate retention.
Nose is bright, lightly tart and acidic strawberry-raspberry fruit with lactic acid, not overdone, following up through the middle and biscuity wheat on the finish that softens the acidity. This must have been incredibly fruit-forward when young, but here the fruit and lactic acid are well-integrated with the beer, yet it seems to have lost no brightness, as the tannins and poignant acidity still keep it perky and light. Very authentic, well-expressed fruit and ample malt/wheat behind it with no flaw or alcohol.
Nicely dry and with surprisingly moderate acidity in the mouth. Yep, another hottenroth-based beer that tastes great. Juciy and good acidity but again it’s well-integrated with malt and wheat, as tight carbonation and a malty, well-attenuated body provide a comforting texture but allow the acidity and carbonation room to maneuver to a bright, bubbly, crisp finish replete with plentiful strawberry, cherry and raspberry notes. Very low oak/wood character; really just texture-forming tannin. No flaw or alcohol.
750ml bottle. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized head. Berries, tart, some funkiness, citrus, and some lighter woodiness. AirForceHops (7895) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 8, 2017
750 ml shared by AdamChandler, color is a lightly hazy orange / golden hue with small fizzy head. Aroma is lemon juice, strawberries, raspberry like. Flavor has a nice level of tartness, the berries is indescribable. Half raspberry / strawberry hybrids. AdamChandler (5182) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 7, 2017
The berries and sour lemon is blended together pretty well, Light body with a effervescent tingle over the tongue. I drank an entire snifter and it was pretty easy going down.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a pink, straw color with a small white head. Aroma was incredibly tart sweet berries. Pixie stick sweet and sour notes, I love tart beers, but this was almost too tart. Serious acid/vinegar on this one. Even writing this review 20 hours after I had it and I think I still taste some of it. Finish was tart with the ever so light hint of vanilla and oak.

750ml bottle. Pours pinky orange. Cranberry, lemon juice, little raspberry, a little bread, touch floral, lots of acidity. Nice. Mep3222 (1659) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Delicious sweet tart taste of the berry and sour. Lactic maybe 4 of 10. Slight sweet berry, almost like blueberry and raspberry. Really delicious. olsvammel (7292) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Tart and fruity smell. Very tart taste, fruity. Strong tart bite in this. Would not peg it as a berliner weisse in a blind tasting. Nice though. beer-yum (1900) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 24, 2017
Tart aroma in a golden pour. Big sour taste with hint of tart strawberry in the body. An excellent example of the style that only lacks a little of the subtlety of the Belgian masters. Korcz (3390) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Bardzo wytrawne i kwaśne, owocowe. Bardzo smaczne piwo, ale dość agresywne.
