COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tartly refreshing, kettle-soured Stone Berliner Weisse gained its orthodox sour and acidic character from a specially selected Lactobacillus strain sourced from local Berlin cultures. To ensure a properly Stone, and therefore iconoclastic, Berliner Weisse, we upped the ABV to a healthy 4.7% and hopped the beer with new German varieties, Huell Melon and Callista. This beer embodies the liveliness of summer with the fruity tang of apricots and the sweetness of ripe honeydew.

bartlebier (4243) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2018
33cl canned SEP17 from Geers cheaper than in their home market...faut le faire. Airlifting the US kettle sour to its home terroir, US-dryhopped with new DE-Hüll Melon and DE-Callista: a bold move only brash Stone could venture. Fazit: an easy hop-streamlined cocktail of "crushability", AT-Latella-Fruchtmolke, gently-carbed Schweppes Indian tonic. Notes of Pfirischmolke, canned gooseberry, starfruit, green pineapple juice, yoghurt, tangerine, sweet lemon pickle brine. Does most of that in flavour with a postmodern hop fruitiness and aluminium bitters that build to upstage the kettlesour surface. Impressed with these new DE aroma hops. Avoids the kettle sour enamel-stripping introduced by Westbrook Gose, - maybe that is Stone Berlin's concession to their EU audience. - - Lots of elements to be critical of in the /ideological superstructure/ of this brew, but as a fan of Fruchtmolke, new DE hops and sub-5% crushers, I can't really argue with how easy this goes down.

Beer5000 (6886) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2018
Can from Gulating. Unclear yellow golden body with a fast disappearing white head. Aroma is fruity with hint of lemon, minerals and yogurt. Flavor is like a pretty standard BW that's rather dry/sour and with more minerals/salt than expected, almost closer to a Gose actually. Medium to light bodied with a decent but salty acidic aftertaste. Nice and refreshing but feels a bit anonymous or might just have lost some of the claimed hop flavor.

nathanvc (894) - Brugge, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2018
Can from Dranken Geers, Oostakker.
Pours hazy pale yellow with a big, frothy, white head. The aroma contains lemon, orange peel, grapefruit, yoghurt & lactic acid, yeast, sourdough, lemongrass - all in all somewhat soapy and perfumey. It tastes light fruity sweet and medium to heavy lactic sour; light hoppy and 'tonic-like' bitter into the tart, bready/wheaty finish. Medium body, slick/watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Good take on a classic style.

einherjar (532) - Rijeka, CROATIA - FEB 16, 2018
Light yellow-green color, large white head. Aroma wheat, vinager. Taste wheat, vinager, pretty sour and tart, with light bitterness. Well balanced.

Psytron (2628) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 10, 2018

Kaaz (8) - NORWAY - FEB 9, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2018 Veldig god berlinerweisse. Blir gjenkjøp. Kostet bare 23 sek på Systembolaget. Middels syrlig, passe karbonert, smaker av sitron, litt tørt treaktig preg, litt ananas og en litt gress-grapefruktaktig humle som antakelig er det som gir det tørre trepreget. Den forsvant så fort at det ble vanskelig å beskrive. Burde kommet i 0,5 bokser. Får åpne to neste gang. For å summere opp så er det humlingen som gir denne særpreget. Minner meg om dypt savnede To øl Dry Hopped Berlinerweisse. Den var på 7,2% så dette er lettversjonen.

Salian (191) - Sale, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2018
Lemon sharp, with subtle malts, refreshing and balanced. Pours hazy, orangey yellow, almost no head. Aroma is clean, lemon, pineapple and a little like pear drop. Pretty good.

3.3
hrabren (2047) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 2, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2018 0.33 l can from Beerlovers, Vienna. Shared with Nick Carlson, Charles Porter and Sara Standsworth. Drank on the bus from a can. Juicy and lemony. Light bitterness, malty background. Medium body, moderate carbonation, light finish. Average.

2.8
Diabobale (563) - ITALY - JAN 30, 2018
Color giallo limone limpido, con schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Al naso troppo coriandolo e limone la condannano ad un aroma molto di sapone. Al palato sembra molto una limonata con una spiccata acidit� citrica. Corpo watery e carbonazione media.
