Pours a murky yet glowing straw color with a thin beige head. Nose has citrus fruits, wheat malts and crisp Lactobacillus presence. Taste is a also fruity with again grassy wheat and a tart funkyness from the yeast. Crisp body is well carbonated. Nice example of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this one on tap at the Rackhouse Pub in Denver. Poured a medium straw gold color, with a bit of rocky white head on top. A bit funky on the nose, with a pleasant yeasty/lemony aroma. A little bit tart on the palate, but not nearly what I would expect. A fairly decent effort from Great Divide.

On-tap at the Great Divide Tap Room. Served in a snifter.

A: Super cloudy straw, with a small but dense eggshell cap. Head retention is just OK, and bits of lace are left behind.

S: Very sour. Very lemony. Plus a super funky body sweat (that's not a typo) aroma. Certainly different, if nothing else.

T: Once I got past the nose, I found myself liking the taste. It's light overall (the bartender said the ABV is only 3.2%), but has a nice level of complexity. Sourdough bread flavors start things off. A sour lemon tartness comes along to provide balance. A slight mineral water flavor is there the whole way through. Finishes remarkably clean.

D: The light body is slightly grainy and could stand a hair more carbonation.

D: I've only had one other Berliner Weiss, and this one doesn't quite stack up. I'm giving big bonus points for GD taking a stab at this obscure style, however. Definitely a beer I'd have to be in the right mood to revisit.

On-tap at the Great Divide tap room. This was pouring super foamy and the bartender could not produce a full snifter so she gave me a half of one for free due to the foam, score! Super cloudy yellow with the aforementioned foamy head. The smell was a little funky and suggested something sour ahead, sadly this was not to be. The flavor was wheaty and not much else. I guess you could say their was a minute bit of tartness but honestly I expected a little more in the sour department.
