Traditional German Berliner weisse beers are tart affairs, often sweetened by the addition of woodruff syrup. Brewed with white wheat malt and fermented with lactobacillus, our tart Berliner riffs on this popular German tradition with the flavors of key lime pie.

hopscotch (11023) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2012 Draft This beer rocks! Cloudy straw-colored ale with no head. The aroma is a fruity, acidic swirl of big key lime, faint cinnamon, mild vanilla and a trace of graham. Medium-bodied and very creamy with airy carbonation. The flavor is fruity and as sour as Hell. Loads of delicious key lime and heavy, yeasty acidity. Crisp, tart, clean finish. God, I love key lime pie and this captures it with scary precision. World class Berliner weisse!

j12601 (10266) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On tap at Monks. Pours a hazed yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Cinnamon, lime peel, graham cracker crust. Medium bodied, lime and light acid. Toast, faint lactic acid. Bright acid with lingering lime zest and another helping of cinnamon. I liked this, but it was probably my least favorite of the four Berliner Weisses they had at the event, and solely because of the cinnamon overpowering things.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Tap at Pegs for Berliner Bash. Full hazed white pour. Nose is rich, super tangy key lime, fresh and zippy, whipped cream and pie crust. Some dessert profile. Wow. Taste is super tart, whoa, key lime pulp and peel. Super tart. Big tartaric/mallic acid. Big lactic acid. Absolutely delicious.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 4, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Generous lime and its acidity are met by precise salt and sugar in this pleasant ceviche-invoking Berliner Weisse.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the whitish blond.
-The smooth bubbling due to the Western tap serving doesnt help the mouthfeel that much. Would have helped if it were more effervescent, or drier-feeling.
-This actually drinks like a real Berliner though, so extra points for dosage with the adjuncts! This beer doesnt feel artificial (contrary to their Maple Bacon Coffee Porter).
-Extra point also for pulling off this high level of drinkability (oysters, lime juice, lactobacillus, authenticity nonetheless, etc.).
