Dogbrick (12234) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Sample at Monks Kettle. Hazy pale yellow-gold color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing. Tart citrus, yeast and malt in the nose. Light-bodied with a tart citrusy character and notes of floral yeast and doughy malt. The finish is herbal yeast and tart lemons. Above average overall.

ineedbeer (1978) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is moderately acidic with some light lemon and pineapple notes. Light grain notes with faint oak. Pours a fairly clear, pale, yellow straw color with a medium large, moderately thick, white head that recedes quickly and disappears. No lacing or legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with a light sharpness. Some light grain notes and a light sweetness. Moderate lemon and citrus notes with some lighter pineapple notes. Hints of yogurt and oak. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice beer. A simple Berliner, but clean and tasty. Acidity is a touch sharp, but not bad.

Draught. Pours a hazy light brown color with little head. Very sour, which I like, and stays on the palate for a bit.

phaleslu (9705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2016
Draft pour at the Shelton Brothers Festival. Ive had a bunch of others in the Bu series, but not the main Bu, so it was about time. Pours a cloudy gold with a massive white head. Notes of lemon, lime, sourdough, wheat, yogurt, herbs, lighter grapefruit, dusty grains - nice. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a dry, tart mouthfeel. Pretty great at 2.1%. Good base to build upon.

TheAlum (7051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2016
Draft on tap at ISOBeers (San Jose, CA). Pours a hazy dulled golden hue, darker middle shows a more muddled glow throughout. Frothy whitish head atop is creamy, a nice ringer laces sufficiently. Aromas are tart, punchy, sweet tarts and pithy lime meet bitter rind, orangw, lemon. Flaked wheat, bready malts, more limey appeal. Yogurt, grapefruit, really nice fresh punchy stuff. Initial is nice and tart, lots of lime essence, green, a bit if key lime, lemon, decent acidic poke. Cleaner dry bready malts, straw, dryness. Grapefruit, yogurt, more lime. Fresh, punchy, citric with a decent tangy edge. Kiss of yogurt, good flavors, crushable stuff really. Fuzzy almost effervescent backend catches nicely. Really nice stuff without lending a dominant flavor or acidic appeal. Light, fresh, limey with lemonade tang, tempered fruit sweetness sitting behind. Makes sense why this works so well as a base. World class Berliner. Fuzzy, quenching, sour slammer with some complexity.

willisread (2933) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - NOV 8, 2016
Tap at Shelton Brothers. Hazy straw color with a finger of white foam. Lots of lemon zest and funk on the nose. Clean and crisp on the palate, but definitely some wheat like creaminess. Carbonation is poppin. Lemony zing on the finish. Lovely.

trevor211 (1651) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2016
On tap at Toronado. Orange, but Earthy and salty. A little of the classic "pizza and orange juice" character. Thankfully not too much. These Berliner Weisse brews just arent my thing.

Draft at Old Devil Moon. Hazy yellow in color with a small white head. The aroma is lemon and herbal, tartness evident. The flavor is nicely tart and citric, quite flavorful for the ABV. Excellent mouthfeel - light and crisp with a good level of carbonation. Really solid.
