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.

TaxiDriver (1847) - Stadland, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2017
A fruity smell of grapefruit like an IPA, a little sweet aroma of sugar. The large white foamy head has a long duration, the body is pale yellow. A sour taste, a little bit alcoholic like champagne. The body is rather light and lively with a lot of carbonation.

Keg at craft beer revolution. Pours hazy yellow, nose is funk, citrus, toffee, taste is tart, funky, zesty.

Stone's Berlin installment producing a Berliner Weisse - seems appropriate for the location... Can at Ganzerik in Ghent. Irregularly cobweb-lacing, egg-white, moussy head, hazy lemony yellow blonde colour. Aroma of lemon curd, sour yoghurt, yellow grapefruit juice, margarine, sourdough, cucumber, Sauerkraut, lime juice, wakame. Crisp, sour onset, lemony but not acidly puckering, spritzy minerally carbo, raw pineapple-, green banana- and lime-like fruitiness, hard green pear too, yellow grapefruit but without its bitterness; supple doughy, wheaty-soapy mouthfeel, feeling quite 'full' for a beer below 5% ABV, lemon soap and sour yoghurt flavours dominating in the middle, almost hand soap-like in the end, adding a rounded, mellow, very elegant and delicately aromatic citrusy and floral hoppiness; a chalky note lingers too, as in your typical, traditional Berliner Weisse. A good idea indeed, trying to connect with local traditions, and updating them with modern, New World-inspired German hop varieties; softly sour but very refreshing and refined.

zacgillbanks (5511) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2017
Can from Coppers, Newcastle. Cloudy yellow-white with a huge rocky head of white foam. It has a tart lemon, herbal and vanilla flavour followed by earthy, sharp fruit on the spicy, warming, biscuit finish. Good.

2.4
CloakedDagger (2800) - - NOV 16, 2017
Can 33 cl. Pours yellow with a slight haze and a small, white head. Dry, lactic tartness in the nose. Light-bodied, again very dry and slightly tart in a yoghurt kinda way. Straight Berliners is still very much an acquired taste. 161117

adamnowek (3319) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 From the can on a park bench like a bum. Aroma is lemon and hay. Taste has a strong wheat character with lemon and orange.
