At the tasting session by Joes. A hazy yellow colored beer, with a thick white head. The aroma of wheat, fruity sour and fresh. The taste is geuze like, woody, dough and bread. The aftertaste is a little sour which stays for awhile. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2009

Sulfer, leather and citrus aroma. Pale yellow colour, fine white head, good lace. Sweetish, very sour, citric, citrus. Bit thinnish but still ok. Nice brew, quite exceptional, a little body would be fine.
Bottle (4,5%). Golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate and malty, sour and dry aroma, lots citrus and green apples, light hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and dry flavor, very sour, green apples and citrus. Finish is average, malty and dry, sour. Interesting and unusual Weisse – reminds me of lambic.

6 Gently sharp acidity immediately on opening, mellowed out with a touch of coriandery wheat later.
3 Cloudy yellow, brief head after an initial gush on opening.
7 Slightly chemical retronasals, but beautiful clean lemony acidity in the mouth. Later taste plenty wheaty too.
4 Crisp palate, tartly acidic, lively carbonation. Finish tingles with a puckering dry sharpness, but does have reasonable light grain wheatiness too.
13 A berliner weisse with balls - treat it with respect. And for pity’s sake don’t add cordial or syrup to this.
Rerate: 500ml bottle (HBF2011)
Fuller in almost every respect, bumping scores a bit (7:3+:7:4:14=3.5)

Pours a hazy yellow colour with a patchy white head. Aroma of sour green apples, grapefruit and orange. Flavour of similar elements with some spicy notes. Medium bodied with a light bitter, citrusy sour finish. Refreshing. Summery brew.

Pours light yellow with a small head. Taste is sour and well balanced.
Bottled at HBF2011. Sourish nose. Slightly hazy pale golden colour. Sourish slightly lemoney taste. It is like lambic! Mild hoppiness. Good! TBone (17519) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 10, 2011

Hazy yellow color, small white head. Sour, wheatish fruity aroma. Light to medium bodied. Fruity, tart, delicious flavor. A bit thin but otherwise excellent Berliner Weisse.
Hazy yellow body, white head. Aroma has interesting mix of lactic acid, salt, bread, wheat and fresh apples. Very nice sourness and really good balance with the wheaty sweetness. I liked this a lot. Bit thin, but the bottle I had had 2,5 abv printed on it.
