3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: toast with a slight nuttiness, plus the wood funk. A little subdued but nice.
T: nice sourness and funk, perhaps a little rhubarb, a bit of toasted malt on the finish (tobacco perhaps?)
M: good carbonation, dry finish
O: really nice fusion of a Berliner Weiss and a marzen, with an American spin with the funk.

750 mL bottle. Pours deep clear brown. A few bubbles but no real head. Smells of toasted malts and bread. Dark fruit acidity. Tastes pleasantly tart. Cherry. Bready malts. A little vanilla. I feel like I get some of the wood tank, but maybe I’m making that up. Light body with low carbonation. So I found this in my fridge and it definitely should have been consumed... 3 years ago? But this is simple, well made, and has no signs of degradation. Sammy (12600) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
plumbing emergency fermented. Flavour is better than aroma. Looks like a marzen. sour finish. Johnsense (1734) - - FEB 23, 2016
Aged too long? Amber pour, wet rag aroma. Taste far better, Brett, marzen, huge horse blanket, oak. Medium body. Obfuscate (593) - Minneapolis, - JUL 16, 2015
This series is always interesting. Tart, lemon, sour, carbonated, champagne, green apple, very light malt, decent. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
From A bottle. The pour is a cloudy light brown. A really sour and tart beer with apple, Carmel and wood.

Pouring at Where The Wild Beers Are 2014. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Caramel and soft funk. Medium bodied, malt, toast, acid. Gentle funk. Chewy funk, lingering acid. Decent stuff. Nero55 (947) - Nevada, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Bottle. Hazy brown with large off white head. Aroma of tartness, CO2 burn, some citrus notes, and a hint of malt. Light body, moderate to heavy tartness, some light malt notes, and a dry finish. The ’marzen" hybrid didn’t fully pay off in this weisse. nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2015
750ml bottle shared by Ryan. Unfiltered tan-brown body. Pronounced new school US sour tones. The aroma has some sour lemon which dominates the whole beer. Thin on the palate, most of the malt seems eaten up and thinned down. Cheesy lacto tones. Lacks real depth. OK, for a sour drink, but a boring end product. davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottled March 2014. Pours a dark brown/red with fizzing carb. Nose is cherries, wheat, musky funk and vanilla. Taste is initially mouth puckering cherries and a sweaty musky funk. Wheat heavy with some oak and caramel. Less berliner and more oud bruin. Pretty unique stuff. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Supposed to be a Berliner, packaged as a Märzen. It is neither. Brown pour. Huge light tan head. Huge funky aroma with some copper notes. Taste is a carbonic bite mixed with a very tart sourness. No bready/yogurt notes as is commonly expected in BWs. I’ll pass on this one in the future.
