COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yuzu is a strange fruit- citrusy and bold. Those three words: strange, citrus and bold are the perfect beginnings for a great beer. So, our brewers paired yuzu with the sourness of a Berlinerweiss to create this beerlicious Yuzu Berlinerweiss. Brewed with pale malt and wheat this Berlinerwiess was acidified with Lactobacillus for a light, dry mouthfeel and tart refreshment. Hazy and straw-colored, the yuzu fruit brings a tropical charm to a traditional beer.

Light greenish-gold, clear. Good tap handle. Perfumy and slightly cedery. Lightly sour and too frooty - tastes like a berry wine cooler. Lightish body, some mineral finish. Always want more out of a Berliner.

Bottle. Pours a light gold with light carbonation. Smells like it is going to be too sweet and sure enough it is. Barely tart, I would never guess this was a Berliner Weisse if I didnt pour it myself. I have zero interest in drinking this one again.

Didnt care for this one too much. Zippy palate. Tart, fruity flavors....too much tart, in my opinion. Unique, but not enough substance.

Bomber. Hazy copper with a white head. Slight tart and barnyard odor. Weird orange and really refreshing.

One2remeber (247) - Bucktown, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Draft. Strange peppermint. Slightly tart orange. Unique, blend of citrus and wheat. Light body, taste of a cream ale, tinge of tangy carbonation. No booze. No big beer type taste.

Slightly hazy golden with a whitish head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, and sour yeast. Taste is fruity and a little sweet. Medium bodied.

Draft on tap at Bavarian Lodge (Lisle, IL). Im not gonna lie.. Im pretty happy I dont actually have to buy a bottle of this. Pours a more hazy straw yellow hue, a bit darker, almost cloudy and murky with a frothy white brighter head atop. Some good stick around as a decent layer overall. Aromas show wheaty and bready malts, a bit doughy, flaked wheat starts to show some gentle fruit presence. A bit of lemon, some tartness is subtle and fleeting, getting a touch grainy and dry on the nose, yeast presence and a faint touch of yogurt. Initial is a mellow tart hit quickly moving to a more yeast driven front, a bit dry and firmly spicy. The wheaty malt base is a bit doughy and firm, some citrus fruit meets gentle straw, grass. Middle sweetens this up considerably, doughy malts meet some more apple, pear elements. A bit sweet, some gentle lactic acidity, citrus or what I presume to be "Yuzu" hits a bit but just cant keep up. A bit sweet into the backend, a touch of bitterness at times. The lactic element really never gets off the ground. A touch too sweet and underdeveloped, Im not quite sure why this has to be such a high ABV either. Meh. I guess I could drink this again but its just nothing like its advertised as.

djd07 (13191) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at Falling Rock. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with thick white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is floral and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with vegetable flavor and light dry finish. Not much of a berliner.

crossovert (12008) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Yuzu dominant in taste and smell. Nice tartness and spice. This is not a Berliner Weisse though, not even close. maybe an imperial saison....

From a bottle poured a straw color with a fair amount of head. Light fruit malty flavor with a quick finish.
