2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose is wild yeast, sour fruit. Taste is relentlessly sour. Some minor hints of cherry syrup, bread and seltzer. Good dry palate. Not the most flavorful Berliner weisse. I could see the appeal of putting syrup in this one.

Pours a bright, cloudy orange with minimal head. It looks like orange juice without any pulp. I consider the aroma as standard for this style, which isn’t a bad thing. Tart, with wheat, banana, spice, and lemon. What isn’t usual though is the slight grassy presence and the pineapple that I notice. The taste is dry and acidic, mildly sweet, and with a tartness that is short and sharp. Dominating flavors of wheat and lemon, with a lingering lemon aftertaste. Light to medium in body, sticky in texture, soft in carbonation. This one is easy drinking for a hot summer day. ramboraffe (2247) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2017

Sample at MBCC 2017. Fruity and tart smell with a light chemical note. Similar taste. Very tart. Doesn’t feel like a berliner. Rough mouthfeel. jmgreenuk (9337) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 12, 2017

0.75l bottle @ Mikkeller Bar shared with my girlfriend. A rapidly fading head on this. Didn’t quite catch the color of it before it went away, but the beer itself is crystal clear and really golden. At least at first. Smells nice. Sorrel, white currants, hay, grains, cornflakes and white wine. Honey also present on the nose, as is hints of something spicy. Nice. Tastes pretty nice also this. White currants and lots of brett here. Mild wood, lots of green sour unripe goodeberries and even a little peach. It’s surprisingly fruity this. Thin oily in the mouth and comfortably carbonated. Nice! 01.02.2015 mathieuc (3958) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
EBF 2017. Pours a pretty clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose doesn’t feel much like a berliner weisse. Some fruits. Taste is really acidic but not quite puckering and pretty plain. Body is medium and carbonation low but we got served from a pitcher that sat for a while I think (keg kicked just before we got to the booth). Alright but certainly not one to write home about. k0mpsa (2925) - Tuusula, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Tap at cbc16. Golden color with small white head. Aroma has sour notes and lots of tropical fruits, some earthy notes. Sour body, mango, fruits, some stable notes. Very nice sour. czar (9022) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
from tap at EBF 2017, boston. unclear light gold pour with a small eggshell white cap offering some retention and lacing. stone fruits, yellow orchardness as well, sweet boozy pineapples though, light to medium acidity - puckering mix of acids; some phenolic esters, spices. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; unbalanced sweet and sour finish. nice yet it seems like a clumsy execution. rumproasts (5342) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2017
Bottle. Golden and rather clear with small head. Tart, light vinegar, and huge tropical fruits. Passion fruit, guava and lemon. Awesome flavor, really dug this one.
