Huge thanks to craytonic for bringing this bottle to last night's tasting. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.

Bottle 115 of 450.

Pours a slightly-hazy yellow color with a nice white head that has some super-fizzy foam, yet still has nice retention. A bit of a collar throughout. The nose carries faint acidity and really nice fruit character. There's a bit of peach plus some nice honeydew. A bit of wheat in there as well.

The flavor hits the same spots. There's light acidity and a dry wheat base, plus great notes of peach, apricot, and honeydew. A bit of miscellaneous melon and fruit salad in there. This is similar to the regular Southampton Berliner, yet not quite as pungent, which is a bit strange considering the name and general imperial nature of this one.

Light body with heavy carbonation and a crisp, dry finish with a moderate dose of acidity. This is one of the better berliners that I have come across, perhaps only surpassed by its younger sibling.

Thanks to CPAbeer for this one

30th Birthday Party

App- A orb looking color like the movie sphere. The inside is a mix of oranges and the outside is a lighter yellow. A few bubbles on this one without a cling level though.

Smell- Incorporates a lot of the usual Berliner notes I have smelled on others. A bit grassy and wheat with a certain dryness and a specific lactic/culture aroma. Some call it yogurt but I get more cream I guess.

Taste- This was an amazing flavor. So smooth and rich with wheat and I even got some fruit along the green/orange citrus variety. Can't pinpoint which ones in there. A bit sour/tart combo but works on this one. Just lovely.

Mouth- A bit of a thin/light body. Has a light-medium carbonation. Residual wheat and lactic flavors.

Drink- A very very good beer. Wish I had another bottle to enjoy. Thanks Chad!!

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!

Going into the release I was a bit concerned that I'd be let down by this beer. The concept of an imperial berliner weisse is a bit paradoxical, but if you sit down and drink this with an open mind, I think it's quite a treat. No it's not Southampton's regular berliner, but it's quite nice.

A: Milky, straw-yellow body. Minimal white head. Forms a skim that remains throughout.

S: Lemonade, orange rind, wet hay, and a mild graininess.

T: Tart lemons, oranges, lactic sourness, grass, wheat and bread.

M: Light to medium bodied, gentle tartness throughout, appropriately carbonated, and refreshing.

O: A unique beer that for me, blends the incredibly easy drinking and light tartness of a wonderful berliner with the body and zip of something like Cantillon's Iris.

Type: On Tap @ IRS Release
Vintage: 2012
Glass: SH Pilsner Glass

Pours a light golden straw in color w/ a skim coat white head that quickly dissipates, and leaves minimal lacing. Aromas of orange, lemon zest, breadiness, and a touch of wet sock/wet dog. The taste was big tart citrus up front(orange, lemon, pineapple, and tangerine), followed by wheat, and a finish of delicate herbal quality. Thin bodied and refreshing. Drinkability? Like Lionel said, "all night long!"

Overall, I drank the hell out of this brew on tap at the release, definately the highlight for me. I prefer bigger beers and this Berliner Weisse on steroids was right up my alley. All the bold flavors of the style w/ more kick.
