Ever so slightly hazy golden and orange coloured body with a very thin white head, only a half centimetre tall. Aroma of wheat, grass, light coriander seed and herbal spices and a touch of full oranges. Light-bodied; Very mild flavour with a hint of yeast, wheat, grass and fruits, without any alcohol or pungency noticeable at all. Aftertaste has a light sweet and fruity flavour, some mellow malts with wheat and grass noticeable and very little else - some super mellow spices and herbs, and that's it - very mild. Overall, an interesting beer that doesn't drink as a Berliner at all, a very light beer that has a touch of a fruity flavour, but more of a super mild and subdued wheat ale than anything else. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Siciliano's in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 for US$1,69 sampled at home in Washington on 31-August-2017.

Bottle via trade. Slightly hazy pale yellow pour with a small white head. Sour wheat and citrus. Thinner palate. Not bad. Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 11, 2017
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear gold body that supports a short lived bright white head. The aroma offers up sweet malts, sweet soft wheat, floral hops and then a light 7-Up soda quality. The taste delivers a blend of malt sweetened wheat, sweet fruity pear like esters and sharper lightly lemon citrus. It gets a tad soda like and yeasty toward the finish. Solid session brew but I’d prefer some sour mash going on in here and a little less sweet. hopscotch (11485) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle... Hazy straw-colored pour with no head. The aroma is mildly grainy, bready and citric. Light-bodied with modest carbonation. Tart, grainy flavor. Sort of thin and watery, but nice overall.

Pours a light yellow with no head. Aroma of sour wheat, lemon juice and lacto. Taste is tart wheat and lemon juice. Very simple, decent Berliner. Maybe one of the best short’s brews that I’ve ever had.

Just not a fan of Berliner Weisse, it’s not totally repulsive but I would choose most other styles over it. Smell has some wheaty character, but once you start drinking it is just sour/tart, why not just squeeze a lemon into a light beer. deyholla (12663) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma is very yogurty with a bit of lemon and some sweet wheat supporting. Flavor has a light tartness but is mainly yogurt and earthy wheat. bpar73 (1214) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle. Pour a slightly hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating white head Light wheat, yeast , and citrus in the taste and aroma. Lemon seems to be the dominant theme here. Not a bad lighter beer for a change of pace. Onslow (1552) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear deep yellow brew with eggy head. FIne aroma of yeast esters, citrus, grain. Taste is great - tart graininess up front with a transition to a citrus / lemon and yeasty finish. Notable saltiness in the very end. I only had one and the salt may wear thin after a few - but I found this to be really excellent. vomit (280) - Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Another Short’s atrocity. “Berliner style Weisse” hey? It’s safe to say that this was not designed by that same rascally German that designed the Volkswagen that’s for sure. Or not. Either way this is a “step up” from the usual tripe this company serves. Would I buy this again? No, of course not. Because I did not buy it this time…my wife did. So there is that: HA! It really defies deScription…but I can say this: “Never before have so many suffered so much, so that so few could be so happy.” Indeed Short’s brewing is bringing a LOT of suffering unto us unsuspecting simple folk…..and for that I give them “the finger”!
Also: what’s with the idiotic name? BAFOOGY!
