4.1/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into oversized flute. Cloudy light straw color with an aggressive 2 fingers of white head. Nose is dry, funky, with a hint of banana and lemon peel. Tongue is quite similar; Lots of the lemon zest makes itself present upfront, then some of the banana esters come to play, then finally the pleasant tartness to finish. Mouthfeel is dry and pretty carbonated. Overall, very pleasant, refreshing brew. QUITE thankful to have tried it.

Reviewing the Southampton Uberliner from the Southampton Publick House out of Southampton, New York.

Score: 84

"2011" vintage bottle (from the January 2012 release). Bottle #158/450. Served in a snifter and enjoyed on 04/25/14. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Pours a clean golden honey color with a thin layer of white fuzzy head that almost totally settles. Poor lacing and retention. 3.5

Smell: Wheat grain, light honey, and wet mustiness. Very simplistic. 4/5

Taste: Wheat mixed with slightly musty/old white grape juice flavor. Light saltiness. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, okay carb. Juicy mouthfeel. Light sourness, more saltiness. No "bite." 3.25/5

Overall: Was not a fan of this beer, though others at the tasting enjoyed it more than me. No one really loved this one, however. Definitely not a beer I would recommend chasing after.

Cost: $15 for a 22 oz (bomber) bottle.

4.48/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a slightly hazy bright golden yellow color wih dark banana/straw colored edges and a two finger, frothy white head that quickly settles into lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. A bit darker than expected but looks nice.

Funky, musty aroma with a nice barnyard character along with zesty citrus peel/lemon juice, sourdough bread and lactic funk. Smells very good with a nice amount of lactic, funky cheesiness bouncing off of the citrus/lemon and sourdough bread notes. There's some light fruit in there as well along with a subtle mineral presence. This beer smells exactly like what I want from the style. Incredibly inviting nose.

On the fuller end of medium body with a really nice balance of lactic funk, sour citric acidity, sourdough bread and light fruit. A lot of American interpretations aren't on point but this is really true to style. Citric lemon juice acidity with wheat/sourdough bread flavor followed by a dry, mineral-like quality and light apple and pear sweetness in the finish. A little thicker than I prefer but this beer is true to style and very easy to drink. Highly recommended!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This practically exploded with foam as it poured a huge head of bright white foam reminiscent of a merangue. The color was a bright yellow like the flesh of a pineapple.

The nose is simple, sour and cidery with some nice apple notes.

The flavor is sweet, tart and dry with a strong balance of Apple and wheat.

This is very dry in feel but super crisp and near absent carbonated bite.

For a retired beer brewed in 2011, this stood up quite well and was very tasty.

Bottle 200/450

WOW, huge gusher!!!!

Pours a lively, hazy gold. Huge, fluffy white head disapates leaving a ring around the beer and not much else.

Smell isn't very aggressive. Slight funk with some tropical fruit notes.

Taste is not nearly as tart or sour as I would expect from an 'Imperial' Berliner...It is tart, just not as much as I expected. Slight wheat flavor hits immediately and gets a little sharper as it goes down

Feels dry and makes me salivate, I think it does it's job here. Crisp and light, even for a 6% Berliner.

Overall, this is very enjoyable. It is certainly something to try, especially if you are a fan of the style! Just have your glass at the ready!!!

2011 vintage, #286/450, split

An explosive gusher - quick reflexes and a helping hand prevented significant loss. Bright peach-orange body, some nice white foam from the explosion. Honestly, nowhere near as tart as any other berliner's I've had, though as it's a pretty obscure style that's really not a large sample. Lemony acidity, white grape, spice, grain, cut grass. Nice beer for a hot afternoon

Bottle 192 of 450: opened with a massive rush of foam spewing out of the bottle. The beer was very active almost resembling what looked like champagne. The beer poured out as a nice clear golden color with a fizzy white head on top. The smell of the beer had the subtle sourness on the nose with some lemon-like citrus as well. The taste of the beer is slightly tart along with the hints of wheat in the finish. The mouthfeel has plenty of carbonation, it's light bodied and dry in the finish. Overall it's a good brew, pleased that I was able to try this one since it's retired.
