look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a tumbler glass.

A very deep opaque, but pale lemon body color, with lots of middle rising carbonation. Head is a nice frothy bleach white three fingers, with no lacing while it settles to a shampoo like puck, and leaves a fine collar.

Nose has a nice lemon tartness, but with not much bread like quality. Mild tartness disappears a bit after it warms up.

Palate loses a bit of it's bread like quality, but none of the sour character. Light bodied with a simple lemon washing density and no aftertaste. Finishes quite wet with some interesting banana like esters. Slightly soda like feel a bit, with a little bit of cola feeling carbonation.

Overall an ok Berliner Weisse, and easy to acquire, great for a simple warm day.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pale, golden, hazy; don't remember the head profile

Aroma: Honey-like aroma dominates the nose

Taste: Tart, honey, crisp, lemony; Not beer like. Not hoppy. Good, but not like a beer.

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color and poured with a short white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and eventually completely faded away.
S: Light to moderately strong aromas of sour lactic acid are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is mostly sour, but this is more of a subtle sourness and is different from the "in your face" sourness of an American Wild Ale or a gueuze.
M: It feels light-bodied and slightly tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: If you can handle the sourness, this beer is quite easy to drink. A dash of raspberry or woodruff would definitely make it more palatable. Nonetheless, it is a good representation of the style.
