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.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy orange, fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma is tart, lemon, faint grassy funk. Taste is lightly tart, mild vinegar, lemon, faint grass. Drying mouthfeel. Good. pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Bottle - Crown Liquors - Indy: Flavors of sour nectarines with a slight funky aroma. Full body with a tangy aftertaste. Interesting. seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2017
On draft in a shaker glass at First Draft bar in downtown Chicago. It poured a clear yellow colour with spritzy white foam and lace. Husky grains, fresh-cut grass, black pepper, lemon rind, intense yogurty tartness to the point of sour, Champagne-like bite. Light body, surprisingly bready mouthfeel, strong carbonation, lingering tart aftertaste, bone dry finish. Delicious and refreshing. phranq (250) - - JUL 3, 2017
Tart sour. But oddly good. Not much in the nose. Taste is sour. Finish is bitter. fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 2, 2017
2016 bomber thanks to joshmcg000. Slightly hazy pale amber pour with a two finger, fizzy off white head that quickly fades. Aroma is loaded with toast, sweetish wheat, biscuit and caramel; nice start. The Tartness is there, but it’s not overwhelming, it takes on a sort of underripe fruit tone, with a little earthy limestone. Flavor is absolutely loaded with malty toast, biscuit and caramel notes up front, then some tart mulberry, lemon, lactic acid tartness, a little hay and thistle. Light body, acidic feel,high carbonation, dry finish. Pretty damn tasty stuff, I like having a decent malt backbone to a Berliner.

22 oz bottle poured, with much thanks to Tcon for the share. Glad this barely survived the long trip back to the Pacific Northwest. A very tart Berliner here. Hazy golden pour with a thin, fading head. Sour preach and wheat aroma. Flavor is wheat forward, but an above average sour note throughout, making this more interesting to me than the usual example in the style. Slight apple. A unique Berliner. Something about this seperate out from the rest, but can’t quit identify it. Very nice imperial Berliner Weisse here Scipio (1215) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2017
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 (2257) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2017
