Lemon aroma. Tart, refreshing, not bad. Apple cider with a malt backbone and more fruit in the finish.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
651mL shared at Campdown Brewdown. Poured a clear yellow. Weak head. Nose is a bit poopy with urine. Taste is buttery and lemon. Very slick. Palate is papery, thin. Not really a Berliner Weisse. Very poor.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle from Total Wine- Kennesaw, GA. Pours dull gold with a fizzy white head that instantly disappears. Not much of an aroma at all, but there is a little bit of funky hay. Taste is lemony grain without much sour on the back end. Palate is decently carbonated and sort of astringent. Not a bad little beer, but nothing memorable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, delicate golden-hued body with an inch-plus head of white foam.
Smell: Cereal grains and wheat soaked leisurely in sour lemon juices with a yogurt-esque lactic hint enveloping it.
Taste: A touch of sweetened grains, then a lemony, citrusy twang pops on the tongue. Light vegetal tones. The lactic quality is there, but it’s pretty mild not quite allowing for a full-on pucker (or even a near-pucker grimace). Some minerals and more of the mild lactic character on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: I found it to be both pleasant and quite refreshing, which was what I was looking for in this beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 Bottle - Pours light amber with a thin film of light tan head. Nose is sour wheat, not very tart, with hints of lemon. Taste is pretty dry and minerally, with a light sour wheat tang and a sheen of citrus on the finish. A bit watery, and well-carbonated. The definition of meh, and bummed that this wasn’t good. A $4.99 bomber of berliner weisse is something I don’t see every day.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle $4.99. Clear golden pour with a white head. Taste is only lightly tart with some lemon rind, touch of grainy sweetness. Mild dry finish. This was certainly refreshing s close to being good, but doesn’t quite hit the mark. Quite refreshing but not anything to go nuts over.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg @ Washington Commons, Brooklyn. Pours hazy gold with a big white head. The nose is lightly tart sweet lemon and honey. Simple. The taste is very crisp light citrus, lemon rind. Tart. Some spring water, a bit of wheat and white grape. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, corker of a summer beer. Very easy to drink. This definitely went down well in 90 degree weather!
