UPDATED: MAR 9, 2014 Updated 3/9/14: The more I drink this and other Berliners, the more I realize just how amazing it is. Bumping it up a few points.
Sampled during One Funky Afternoon on 4/2/11. Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. The color right away tells me it’s going to be a fuller tasting Berliner Weisse than average, which is just fine so long as it’s still identifiable as the style. Aroma is creamy wheat malt and tart lemon. Lemon sourness in the flavor with creamy wheat malt before a finish that is funky, tart and bitter. Very nicely done. Wallaby501 (72) - - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle to tulip. Lemon aroma, clear golden appearance with little lace. Taste is lemon and more citrus than expected. Refreshingly tart and tasty. Very good example of the style. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle thanks to Jstax. Pours a hazy pale blonde color with a finger of fizzy foam the bubbles out quickly. The nose is tight lime, lemon pith, yogurt and a touch of cheerio malt. On the palate its direct and snappy with great carbonation and a refreshing quenching tartness that has a touch of unripe berry funk mingling with great levels of acidity and sourness. Delicious wish i could buy this by the gallon ! harrymel (1551) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Blond colored ale with a little white foam. Smells of funk, some anooos, some lactic character. Nice nose. Funky with nice lactic character and a clean finish. Classic berliner flavor - really nice. Thin bodied with hi carb and a dry finish. A really well done berliner. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Multiple glasses at HF 2nd Ann. Aroma is clean, sour, light lemon tartness and faint wheat. Flavor is crisp, tart, citrus sourness, lemonade and a touch of a spice tingle. So smooth and easy drinking. Perfect carbonation and not overly puckering. Just the right amount of sourness imo. Great stuff.

On tap at the Hill Farmstead 2nd Anniversary VIP event. Typical berliner weisse pour- light straw with an excellent white head. Beautiful lactic acidity and stone fruit finish off with light earthen funk. Light body with a dry finish. Very quenching and delicious. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Jackie o’s Berliner weisse (second batch - different blend than the first)... Pours a mostly opaque and
murky pale yellowish light brown hue and topped with a quickly fading
thin white head... Aroma of a lemony wheaty profile, tart and
refreshing, extremely easygoing... Flavors are a continuation of the
same grapefruity almos with lemon zest, not so much of the wheat comes
throug but more of the lacto sourness. Drinks small and easy,
grapefruit juice like with a smaller grain backing. Semi-lively
carbonation. Nicely done.

Bomber to tulip (shared with the Mrs.; thanks for muling this for me, DrSilverworm!). Batch ’13, bottle #198/204. Looks good; a slightly cloudy yellowish-orange with white lacing that dissipates quickly. Smells and tastes solid; tart, doughy, and a little funky. Nice on the palate. A good example of the style. burg326 (5577) - Florida, USA - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared by Markwise, poured a cloudy straw yellow color with aromas of light wheat, lemon rinds, some light lemon, and a touch of barnyard. Flavors were light tart lemons, wheat, and a light acidic aftertaste. Not overly tart, light on the palate, very enjoyable overall. douglas88 (9515) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. A big sour woody nose. The flavor is rich sour lemons, funkiness, hell is brett in here, a nice zesty and carbed palate. This is amazing at 4%. Loads of flavor and super drinkable.
