Personal whale that Rego brought to my Birthday Berliner Bash, with it being a very old bottle, I had little expectations going into it. Popped the bottle, and it was a gusher, so be careful if you have one, lost maybe 15 to 20% of the bottle, but still plenty in there to drink. Poured a golden orangish color with aromas of light hay, feint lemon, and some old hay. Flavors were the same, light lemon, not overly tart, I'm sure the age mellowed this Berliner down, but it was drinakable, I enjoyed it and now time to start looking for my next whale. corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy bright golden yellow color wih dark banana/straw colored edges and a two finger, frothy white head that quickly settles into lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. A bit darker than expected but looks nice.
Funky, musty aroma with a nice barnyard character along with zesty citrus peel/lemon juice, sourdough bread and lactic funk. Smells very good with a nice amount of lactic, funky cheesiness bouncing off of the citrus/lemon and sourdough bread notes. There’s some light fruit in there as well along with a subtle mineral presence. This beer smells exactly like what I want from the style. Incredibly inviting nose.
On the fuller end of medium body with a really nice balance of lactic funk, sour citric acidity, sourdough bread and light fruit. A lot of American interpretations aren’t on point but this is really true to style. Citric lemon juice acidity with wheat/sourdough bread flavor followed by a dry, mineral-like quality and light apple and pear sweetness in the finish. A little thicker than I prefer but this beer is true to style and very easy to drink. Highly recommended! slowrunner77 (13622) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"A pleasant wheaty, fruity and slightly funky aroma gives way to an amazing (and even more funky) sour flavor. Slight sweetness, very dry. The wheat shines. Unlike Grand Teton, who had a too-sweet higher abv Berliner, this one is pretty stinkin good. " deekyn (1459) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 26, 2014

Bottle care of Joe at Erics’ tasting. Poured clear gold with light head and not much lace. Notes were big on dark grape and plum skins mixed in with some awesome butt yeast. Good drink for sure.

Bottle at RBSG. Pours a hazy light yellow. Nose is lemon, lacto, and sweet yeast. The palate is light acid, grain, applesauce, malt, and a hint of citrus. Medium dry finish. A bit too sweet for my liking. Aniela (4215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2013

Big thanks to the kind soul that shared this one at the recent Tampa Tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is white grapes, some lemon, citrus, tartness, and hints of wheat. Flavor is similar- tart citrus and some white grapes with hints of wheat and lactic. Medium in body for the style and very nice overall. jtclockwork (17942) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2013
