750ml bottle. 2012 Vintage. Poured a cloudy golden color with an averaged sized head. Would not have guessed this was a Berliner Weisse ... fruity with lighter citrus. Had an over carbonated and somewhat fizzy body that drowned everything out. wutangfinancial (202) - CA to VA, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Pours a cloudy darker golden color. Nose is malty, sweet, fruit, a hint of acidity. Palate is heavy for the style, with flavors of fruit cocktail syrup, some grain, a bit of tartness, little acidity. Medium dry finish. pintbypint (3732) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Sampled from bottle at RBAG 2013. Gold pour, hazy, small swirl of white cap on top. Nose has spices, yeast and bread with slight citrus and fruit. Taste is bready, yeasty with lemon. Some spice at the end with dough and yeast. Not very traditional, but a decent summer beer. Torontoblue (85) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Lightly hazy yellowish gold with a creamy white head. Not much lacing present. Aroma is sweet, some lemon grass, wheat with just a touch of underlying citrus. The palate is much the same, but comes over far too sweet for the style, very little salty/citric/sharp/refreshing tangyness one would expect. And at 7.5%, way too high in alcohol. Not very subtle.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2013. Lightly hazy yellow-gold topped by a creamy white head; spare lacing. Aroma is sweet and wheat with an underlying tanginess. The palate is much the same, quite sweet though, not quite syrupy but certainly stickier than a Berliner weisse should be in my mind. Not bad, but not what I had hoped for I guess.

Bottle - Light grains, lemon grass and some sweetness. Clear gold eith a decent white head. Grains, some lemony sourness and yeast. Refreshing. jkwood04 (5452) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Big bottle in a stemless bulb. Pours golden with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, spices, hints of tartness but very little. Flavor the same. Agree with adamjackson’s rating, not a Berliner Weisse rayOfBeer (674) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Tap: hazy golden yellow with virtually no head. Aroma is tart grass and funky yeasy on the nose. Flavor is mostly lemony tart with a punch of sweetness, grassy wheat, and a yeast funk. Unusual flavor, would have more pop with greater carbonation, would make for a nice hot weather refresher. AdamChandler (5113) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Hazy golden orange
Lots of coriander and honey.s
Spicy taste. Honey and a bit of lavender. Sweet pumpernickel bread
This is not a berliner weisse AirForceHops (7546) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 31, 2013
750 ml bottle from Red Stone Liquors. Nose is apricots, candy sugar and over ripe fruit. Flavor is lemons, clove like notes and again dried fruit. It has a solid wheat back one which I enjoy. The beer itself is pretty good. It is nowhere near a Berliner Weisse, more like a Belgian ale. No sour or tart notes anywhere here. I understand raters being angry with what is advertised. Because if you want sour or tart you are not going to find it in this brew. Still all in all not bad.
