AdamChandler (4864) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Cloudy golden yellow. Small head. Looks like watered down Gatorade. Smells like a lager with a light tropical essence. Lager with some wheat thrown in but very thin. Only a light sourness. Truthfully Im getting pilesner with lemon zest

ClarkVV (6400) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Draught at the brewery, 9/27/15.
Lightly hazy pale gold with a tinge of copper. White head is medium-sized and slowly fades to cover.
Great lactic presentation in the nose, with fruitiness, lots of wheat and light minerality. Clean, not aggressive, but not underwhelming on the acidity either.
Snappy acids collect on the palate, with ample carbonation, a sparsely-malted texture with light wheat nuttiness, plentiful fruitiness and finishing softly lactic, crisp and quenching. Lovely stuff, as with most CBC beers and well to-style with nothing flashy going on.

Ungstrup (36442) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2015
Draft. A golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and straw. The flavor is acidic with notes of lacto, straw, and malt, leading to a tart finish.

bu11zeye (13015) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2009
(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy straw body with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, musty basement, delicate lemon, and grain. Flavor of grain, nicely tart lemon, wheat, and light grass with a dry finish.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Straight, no syrup. Pours a opalescent translucent pale golden, with a crisp, clean white rim. Unique tart green olive aroma. Distinctly olive-like, thats for sure. Flavor develops with kalamata olive bread. Very bready, doughy, and yeasty. Some distinctly medicinal band-aid character right up front. Foamy, seltzer quality. Acetate finish. Not nearly tart enough for the style. Not much unboiled malt character. Weak. Slightly stinging in the nose. This is a very poor rendition. Hard to finish.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2009
UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 On tap at CBC (250909). Authentic looking hazy straw/pale yellow colour. Aroma of sour mash dough. Just a whiff of something a bit chemical like drain cleaner too. Fairly sharp and lemony on the palate. Slight astringence on the finish. I know this is a rare style and all, and of interest for that reason, but I find it tough to get much more from Berliner Weisses other than a sharp, tart, refreshing character. I’m not sure there is really supposed to be much more than that. So, although this is certainly pretty close to style, it didn’t really hit the spot for me. Might have been different, of course, if it was my first beer of the day and I wanted something thirst quenching to knock back.

TURDFERGUSON (4056) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Draught at CBC. Hazy straw with a small ring of white lace. Nose of wheat, some very light tartness, olives. Nice, slightly tart flavor. Refreshing if nothing else.

Originally reviewed 8/19/2008... Clean and crisp honey-lemon-pineapple color. Thin soap sud head goes quickly. Mild scent with even a little Pilsener texture, some yeast/wheat electricity and slight citrus sourness. The sour texture here is enjoyable. Strong wheat backbone with good yeast component. Crisp and fresh. Carbonation makes this nice and light - sour citrus pucker on back of palate expands to whole mouth on finish. Tart and tingly. Very drinkable and enjoyable - clean and good for hot summer day.
