Zlotta (2368) - Hagen, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
0.5 l bottle from ’Bierkompass’, import label says best before October 2015, presumably bottled about two years ago. Minimally hazy, golden yellow with a large, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sourish, citrusy aroma of lemon, wheat, gooseberry and straw. Moderately sour and citrusy taste of lemon, gooseberry, white grapes, straw and wheat, followed by a short, moderately tart and quite dry finish. Thin to medium body, a little astringent and rather effervescent mouthfeel, very lively carbonation. I’m not a huge fan of Berliner Weiße, but that may be due to the poor examples I’ve mainly drunk so far. This is a great example of why it may be called ’Champagne of the North’, it’s fortunately less sour and mellower than many other examples, it’s intensely fruity and has a nice body with a sparkling carbonation. I really like it!

Sampled at RBWG Tampa. Thanks to whoever shared this! Gold pour with a small head. Light lemon meat and other spring fruits. Sort of zesty. Some hay and wheaty funk. Light and zippy. Spritzy carb. OK.

jonas (7024) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy yellow, high carbonation, big white head. Fine citric tartness on light dusty grain. Fairly foamy mouthfeel, feels consequently light-bodied. Thin hayish malt, Tart - lime and milk acid, light flowery. After beating some carbonation out of it, berry notes, a hint iodine come forth and it becomes quite pleasant and quenching.

SinH4 (3428) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 19, 2016
Bottle. Hazy pale yellow color with big white head. Aroma is wheaty, with lacto and tart fruits, mostly citrus peel. Taste is wheaty, lightly tart, more lacto and citrus, and a refreshing crisp tart finish. Light-bodied. A good Berliner Weisse with a hint of a bigger wheat body than other examples (probably due to the > 4%). Silky mouthfeel, but with a high crisp carbonation. Great balance. One of the few American Berliner Weisses that I would actually call a Berliner Weisse :D

Grumbo (1674) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle from bierpost.com. Pours a cloudy pale yellow/amber with an initially large white head soon dissipating to nothing. Aroma of citrus, spice, wheat, sharp but with a hint of sweet syrup. Medium sourness, masks a medium sweetness which develops as the sour subsides. Body is quite light, texture is thin. Finish is a tart/sweet mix. Whilst not a style I typically favour, I liked it.

atrox (615) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Clear, golden colour; great, white head. Tart aroma, some lemon and lacto. Gentle tartness in taste, also sweet taste. Lack of berliner wiesse character.
