Sampler at brewery. Pale yellow with no head. Rubbery, wheaty, corn. Lightly tart with a fair amount of wheatiness. Dry and easy.

Sample at Gabf. Pours a hazy yellow with medium white head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, dough. Thin body, wheat, lemon, orange peel, light tartness, good.

12 oz can. Lemon, lime. Mild tartness. Finishes with lemon and wheat. Low carbonation, crisp and extremely refreshing. Bought a 6 pack and have been crushing them on the beach at the outer banks. 115 heat index couldn’t think of a better beer to drink in this situation.

(Can) Clear, pale gold body with a medium white head that quickly disappeared. Aroma of lemon, grain. Sour lemon flavor, toast, mild sweetness; very acidic and bright. Flat mouthfeel. I can see this being nice on a hot day; with low carbonation it’s almost like not-too-sweet lemonade (not in a bad way).

Poured from the can. Unbelievably light, like Coors light. Although I’m not very proficient in the style. Aroma is like dark fruits flavor is a bit tart, but kind of grainy. Overall not as bad as it looks, I thought it was gonna be a drain pour.

Radek Kliber (7359) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 24, 2015
Where and how: can 355 ml, tasting
Aroma muted tartness, fruity, berry like behind. Ending with gooseberry.
Appearance :
Top: poured flat, almost no head.
Base: pale, straw gold
Palate : lacking carbonation of Berliner.
Taste: frontal bolder tartness hinted with berry elements.
Other notes needs some tweaking.

mansquito (6437) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Total Wine, Fairfax can: pours hazy light orange yellow. Aroma is sour mash and wheat. Taste is lightly sour with a sort of bready feel. Not a great berliner weisse.

Decent enough sour but somewhat entry level. Great little afternoon sipper at 3%. Tart- just like the name implies. Nice citrus notes and wheat base keeps it good and light. Reminiscent of sourdough. Or a decent Marlborough. Bit of an odd finish but pretty drinkable. Better than score indicates- imho.

[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ @tasting ][ $0 ][ Shot glass ][ 08.15.15 ]
Tepid transparent straw, lightly effervescent. Heavy pedio nose, light entero and dusty. Softer lacto flavor, some rice and lime juice, aggressively sour for a Berliner but low acid allows grain to continue. Thin and frothy.

Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Appearance is watery yellow...aroma is sour hay with corn...taste faintly sour with notes of wheat..finish is crisp enough but you just want more bite...overall its a little below average as the style goes...i wouldn’t go out of my way for this one...
