3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Personal Rating #2600. I chose this for #2600 because, well...actually, I didn’t really choose this beer for #2600; it just happened to be #2600, because that’s just what happened. It’s probably the 4800th beer I’ve had, but I am so sick of rating beer and saying the same shit over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, that I probably rate every 16th new beer that I try these days. I chose to rate this because I couldn’t figure out anything else to do. I was playing the guitar, but I don’t think today was a good guitar playing day, I wasn’t really into what I was playing today. I think another reason I chose to rate this beer is because it’s...woah now, I almost said it’s a berliner weisse, but what I meant to say that it says it’s a berliner weisse..and I like berliner weisse’s so I figured that because the label says it’s a berliner weisse that it would in fact be..a berliner weisse, and being a berliner weisse, I figured that there was probably a decent chance that I might even like it, and then, because I liked it, I might be able to say some words in a rating that I hadn’t said over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again in other ratings.
In any event. This is a 7.5% "Berliner Weisse" that tastes like an imperial hefeweizen. I’ve probably never said that sentence in a rating before. Pours a cloudy bronze-yellow, spotty white head. Hefeweizen-like nose of wheat, banana, and clove. Flavors follow suit; if there is lactobacillus in this beer, I think it may have been dead when it got thrown in. It basically tastes like a high alcohol hefeweizen. It’s not putrid or anything; it’s not like the dead lactobacillus caused any horrific off flavors; i dont really think it did much of anything, actually. It’s just your average hefeweizen with a few more percentage points of ABV...this is what you call a date rape beer. I guess. I don’t really know; I dont have much experience calling beers date rape beers; in fact, this was my first. I lost my date rape beer name calling virginity to Grant Teton Snarling Badger. Know mother fucking that, and know it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over (typing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again is actually quite fun) and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.
Draft at Magic Valley Beer Festival. Tart more than sweet, almost a sour beer. Light color and crisp taste, refreshing summer drink, clean finish. BlackHaddock (7690) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
12oz bottle on 1st June 2016, outside our holiday cabin in Big Bear Lake, California. Misty orange pour, weak white, wispy head. Strongest BW I have ever had, it did it no harm, usual semi-sour citrus/yeasty/tart/sharp flavours and aromas. Decent and a great refreshing beer after a days driving and sight seeing. ajnepple (7076) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2015
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Cloudy, dull orange appearance with a small white head. Aroma of orange peel, banana, clove, bready malts, lemon zest and yeast. Similar flavor, moderately acidic and mildly sweet with a hint of alcohol. Medium body with an astringent, light bitter finish. It’s a little bit hard to drink and it just tastes a little dull and off overall. Meh. Pairing: Widespread Panic - Set One, from July 4, 2010, at The Spud Drive-In, Driggs, ID Craftbrewhaha (80) - - OCT 1, 2015
Higher alcohol than a typical Berlinerweisse, I still really enjoy this beer. Their is more body, which offers a wonderful balance to the acidity. One of my ultimate go-tos when I’m in the mood a tart treat. lightbias (455) - USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle from a rep who may no longer be a friend of mine. This opened fine, poured okay, and the aroma was lighter but more harsh than I expected. First sip told me that either this is a bad bottle, or this stuff is terrible. Highly acidic citrus in levels that made this is drain pour. First beer of the night. Actually uncomfortable to drink. He’ll need to make it up to me if he thinks this is a decent beer.

Interesting twist on a Berliner Weiss, if it can still be called that. The sweet hefeweizen notes blend nicely with the traditional sour resulting in a muted SweetTart affect. RobertDale (6856) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - APR 27, 2015
On tap. Comes a somewhat cloudy pale gold with an average white head. Aroma of citrus, malt, and yeast. Taste is citrus, fruit, spice, malt, and yeast. Decent. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[Tap] Light golden color with a white head. Cloudy pour. Musty grains, green apples and wet grass in the nose. Notes of dough, citrus, clove, peppercorn and some alcohol in the taste. Harsh levels of acidity. Lots of carbonation. Lingering tart citrus finish. Thinner body. Not that easy to drink. Tasting notes from 8/2014. benfergy (248) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - FEB 1, 2015
The aroma of this beer isn?t very strong; the most present element is the yeast. The taste is very good; there?s both sweet and (citrus) sour. The palate is refreshing. Good beer, even though I?m still not certain how much I like the Berliner Weiss style. GreatDane1632 (1174) - North Dakota, USA - DEC 7, 2014
12oz bottle Poured into a tulip -- Pours and smells like a really good Berliner. Flavor doesn’t back it up, too sweet not enough sour. Decent drinker.
