COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This reverse engineered, wild Berliner-Style Weisse is a German-style sour that is very pale in color and is the lightest of all the German wheat beers. The unique combination of wild yeast and lactic fermentation yields a beer that is acidic, lemony-tart, highly attenuated and very light bodied. The carbonation of this Berliner Weisse is high, and hop rates are very low.

On tap at 109 Brews. It poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, straw and some wheat. The taste was similar to the aroma with more citrus, some tartness, sour and light sweetness. It was light bodied with a crisp finish. Good stuff.

Andrew196 (1688) - Katy, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2017
Can to glass - pours like a fizzy Chardonnay, nice white head, quick dissipation. Aroma of, nectarine, white grape peel, souring lemon yogurt, taffy. Good grief, so sour and dry but great. More lemon on the tongue, sour apple but also an underlying sweet graininess. Great!

Can. Pretty, deep pastel gold with a low, fine head. big lactic yogurt nose,lemon. Very tart and lemony flavor, quite sour actually for a Berliner. A bit salty, lemon, milk. Good and summery.

maekchu (3706) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2016
Can. Thanks to Mike. Sour, pickly, sourgrass flower aroma. Light hazy apple juice color. Super tart initial, thin wheatiness, with a bit of tingly white wine-like notes. Strong sourness all the way through. Thin, dry, and acidic. A bit overdone perhaps for a Berliner, but still very nice.

jgb9348 (5993) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Very clear golden coloured body with some peach and honey glow and a very thin, super fast-dying white head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, lemons, sour funk and a lot of acidic, sour candy - very nice. Super light-bodied; Strong lemon, funk, yeast, grass, bread and sour candy flavours with a lot of biting sour elements with a nice sweet candy-ish flavour and more sourness than youd expect from this style, but shows very nicely. Aftertaste shows the lemon and funk at first with some residual breadiness and more sour and lemony funk notes at the end, that are all nice and smooth and make this great to drink, especially on a hot day - like it is today! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Specs in Dallas, Texas on 11-November-2015 for US$2,83 sampled at home in Washington on 10-September-2016. This can exploded upon opening and immediately fizzed out a lot of the head. However, after that, there was not much head at all on the beer.

Bif (2144) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUL 30, 2016
On tap. Poured a slightly hazy straw color with a small head that faded quickly. Aroma of citrus and lemon with hint of grain. Taste of citrus, quite lemony with just a trace of malt. Solid bitterness that lingers into the finish. fairly light body with a definite tart presence. Nice beer, just not a style I crave.

Another sour but not nearly as intense as the other I had today. Really good though.
