scones (8) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2014
One of my very favorite beers, and perfect for the late spring/early summer. Even with the very gentlest a pours, a massive pillowy head pushes out of the glass. If your glass has one of those little laser-etched bubble-generator things (what’s the actual name for those?) in the bottom, don’t be surprised if the thick, foamy head continues to billow out into a cone of froth towering over the glass. The beer itself is golden-straw colored, almost with an extremely faint tinge of emerald green. It smells tart, very lightly grassy. The taste is crisp and clean, slightly tart and a bit sweet, maybe a bit lemony. Mouthfeel is light and lively with carbonation, coupled with acidic sourness. Overall, you could almost liken it to drinking a Mountain Dew in its palate and tartness, but obviously it is quite different in its flavor. Very drinkable, very refreshing, delicious, and sessionable.

Hazy golden pour with a big, rocky, frothy bone white head. Aroma was light lemon, white wine, yeast. Flavors were slightly tart, fresh lemon, cereal malts, simple yet elegant. Lively, champaign like carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmoreau (4374) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Shared 12 oz. bottle of the 2017 version, poured to snifters displaying a hazed, light golden color, with a fluffy layer of white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was light yeast, soft wheat, lemony tartness & tanginess, a bit dusty, with some grass & greenery. The taste was similar, light to medium bodied, with decent spritz to the effervescence, and a pleasantly dry finish. Nicely balanced & perky refreshment.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Beerman6686. Pours a clean looking yellow. Big notes of lemon and tartness. Slightly floral. Nice.

delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - MAY 26, 2016
12fl oz bottle poured into an English pint. Clear sparkling gold with a modest white head. Fruity aroma. Flavor is a blast of sour. Holy crap! I almost spit this out. My girlfriend poured this for me for a blind rate. I was not expecting that. Still, even after several sips, it’s incredibly sour. I didn’t like this at first but it grew on me. Not a bad Berliner- never thought i would say that. 1. GF knows I am not a fan of Berliner weiss. 2. Don’t give anyone a Berliner weiss blind. Ever. 3. Seriously. Who does that??? 4. OK, do that if you want to laugh… and you’re an ass. 5. For real, I wish I had thought to do that.

2016 bottle. Aromas of white grapes, light malts, sweet corn, faint straw. Hazy golden pour with a foamy frothy white head. Flavors of white wine, chardonnay, tart grapes, white bread. Slight tart semi-dry pallate. The smoothest Berliner Weisse I’ve had. Not my favorite style but well done.

2 Apr 2016, bottle. pale yellow and faintly hazy. nose is sweet, light lemon. crisp grape must, light lemon juice. pretty good on its own and would probably go well with berliner syrup.

Pale yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon mainly. Taste is tart, little puckering. Very dry. Grain aftertaste is present but not dominating. Great lacing.

bwa5879 (942) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Very cloudy very light yellow pour, fairly effervescent, quarter inch or so of crisp white head. Aroma has subtle fig, strawberry, raspberry, some subtle waxy yeast. Average carbonation, frothy light mouthfeel and a slight bit tart, finished very crisp and dry. Flavor of tart fruits like raspberry, Apple and pear, lemongrass, hint of wheat.

4.2
zizzybalubba (1869) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 27, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Discount Liquor, Milwaukee, WI. Yellowish-orange pour with a pillowy white head. Aroma of white wine, barnyard, and damp leather. Taste is pleasantly sour with fresh lemons and white grapes adding the acidic component while the underlying wheat balances the overall flavor. Perfect as a summer beer but it also works on this warm winter’s day. Easily surpasses any other Berliner Weisse I have tried.
