From notes (On-tap at Meadhall)

Appearance: It has a nice really hazy peache/orange (cream-sickle like) color to it. It has a nice light orange head that dies down moderately and leaves little lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of ripe strawberries, rhubarb, some tartness, wheat malts and a faint breadiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some strawberries, rhubarb, a slight acidity, some lemon tartness, a slight breadiness and wheat.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.

This beer looks... strange, opaque milky pink-tinged yellow. Decent head and lacing. The beer has a scent that fits it's name, but style? Rhubarb pie or strawberry-kiwi notes, but missing a sour bite.

The same could be said of the taste. The sour hints are there; they lead you to the edge, but throw up a barrier to save your palate from the puckering crash of thrilling free-fall. If it could have just let you fall, even with a lifeline, it would have gotten a tick or two higher. Even so, I could have this as a sour-ish substitute were the real thing not available.

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

750ml cork and cage bottle poured into a gueuze glass.

A: Pond water murky. Head is surprisingly creamy and persistent. Thin rings of lacing.

S: strawberries and rhubarb. Thin suggestion of tart lactic acid. Very wheaty. A simple and quiet nose.

T: Creamy wheat up front. Lactic sour taste remains a background constant. Strawberries come on middle to end and add a touch of juicy flavor. Rhubarb brings up the rear with a little tartness of its own. Strawberry rhubarb finish with a very mild tartness.

M: Light bodied. Full and frothy thanks to the wheat. Mild scrubbing carbonation.

O: The lactic acid character that should be the focal point of a good Berliner Weisse takes a back seat here, presumably to let the strawberries and rhubarb shine through more. It's a refreshing and crushable beer with some good and fresh strawberry/rhubarb flavor, but don't expect it to compare with the more traditional Berliner Weisse beers out there.
