3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From growler at Dark Lord Day. Growler was just labeled "Berlin," and this didn’t look quite a Berliner Weiss. Slightly cloudy yellow to brown color, thin ring of foam. Well, the smell does have some of the requisite tartness. Not like I’ve had more than 3 or 4 of these anyway. Taste proves the style, though. Nicely tart wheat beer, no brett at work, all acidulated malt. Very spritzy.

A pretty decent base Berliner, nothing too exciting but that’s fine. Still a good solid example.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks Khalil for sharing the bottle! Poured into a taster shows whitish yellow with no head.
The nose is tart with a light maltiness and brininess.
The palate is medium bodied and lightly carbonated. Slightly tart with a light saltiness. Good standard Berliner Weisse.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9 oz bottle poured, thanks to Jeff for the bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a patchy head. A slightly sweet aroma of citrus fruit, and a slight wheat. A nice tart constant flavor with a juicy citrus fruit, a cool melon, a growing lingering wheat, and a slight orange. Refreshing berliner here. Good tart notes. Nice fruit content. Very nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16.9 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of citrus, light lacto and wheat. Flavour is quite citric, with light lacto, wheat, citric notes, and light acidity on the finish. Nothing overly deep, but it’s clean and well-brewed. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9 ounce (500 ml) bottle, 2016 vintage, label says 5.2% ABV. Served in a Bell’s Spiegelau wheat beer glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about an inch or so off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like wheat/grainy malt, tart lemon, and some earthiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also some lime and lacto tartness noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s refreshing and easy enough to drink with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought it was a good, tart enjoyable brew. I’d like to try this again in the future. $7.99 a bottle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on draft at Vintage Estate this beer poured a slightly cloudy dark gold color with a large foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was sourish and semi sweet with yeast and lemon. The flavor was tart, lactic, lemony, sour and almost vinegary. Long finish. Medium body. Ok.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Jackie O’s pub in Athens. Milky yellow appearance with almost no head. Soft lactic acid / light parmesan, lemon, and tropical fruit. Lightly sour. Super drinkable and clean. Not super complex but excellent flavor. This would be nice in cans.
