2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
clear golden with sustained head. flat and toasty malts with a hint of chalky, dry apple. in the mouth the sourness has a very vinegary flavour but isn’t all that tart. Which is very strange. tasty but it has plenty of off stuff and a very 2d malt character.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap at 1702, Tucson; July 2012
Arrives from the tap with a frothy, one finger thick, pale tan colored head. The beer is a gold color that shows a clear, straw gold color. Lightly tart smelling with a slight lemon note, it mostly has a thin, beery / grainy note to it, a touch of straw, and some green apple notes.
A touch more sour than I was expecting from the nose, it has a clean lactic tartness to it, and this mixes in with a thin grainy / grassy note, as well as a cheap lager finish somehow; perhaps this last is a little corn like. Fairly light bodied, it does have some lactic slickness to it, but this is still down right quaffable brew; it actually seems to have a touch more body than your usual Berliner would have.
Really a rather poor example of the style. It still manages to be refreshing, but the cheap lager like corn character is a bit of a distraction and really doesn’t work here.

Bottle. Light amber with one finger head. Nicely tart with lots of lemon. Very refreshing brew, but perhaps a bit one dimensional.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is golden light supporting a thin crisp head that dissipates quickly leaving no lace. Smell is light on the nose with malt, wheat and lemon citrus. Taste has the malt, wheat and a sour lemon that chases to the end. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. certainly wakes the mouth up with that punch of tart.

Utah state liquor store bottle. Yep I bought it because it was a Berliner Weisse and not because of its ranking. A little grainy and thin for me. A little tartness but that is overpowered by some dustiness. Meh.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for the bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a white head. Zesty, lemon, honey, citrus aromas. Light, lemon, tart flavors. Nice, drinkable berliner weisse.

22oz bottle in a snifter. Pours golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of tartness, some caramel and pale malts, and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, with some light fruits too. Very carbonated. A decent beer of the style but not my favorite.
