3.38/5  rDev -20.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a big white head leaving good retention and lacing.

Smells of grainy malt with an underlying funk and some lemon.

Similar flavors. Very grainy texture with bits of lemon. There also seems to be much less wheat presence and an almost brett like funk throughout.

Definitely not light as a normal berliner, but not unexpected due to the uber. Carbonation is too high and too prickly to let the subtle flavors come out.

Really kind of disappointed with this one. I usually love Berliners, but this one was too carbonated and lacked the nice subtle sour mash tartness I usually like in the style.

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.

Thanks to Mike (oreo) for hooking me up with a sample at DLD 2012!

A - Pours a golden yellow color, fizzy white head, thin collar.

S - Citrus peel, light malts, spice, light tartness, wheat and bready notes in there too. Good, but not quite on the level as the regular SH Berliner, IMO.

T - Fruity citrus, floral, wheat, breddy malts, some tartness. A bit bland on the palate, if you ask me. I thought I would fall in love with this beer, but alas, it doesn't quite live up to previous SH expectations. Finish is tart citrus.

M - Light body, good carbonation, dry finish.

O - A good berliner, but didn't blow me away like I was expecting. A bit of a let-down, but still, not bad at all. I'd have again, and it's super-easy to drink but not worth the chase, IMO.

Thanks to Cavery for sharing this one at the post Bruery Reserve Society party bottle share!

2011 vintage. Bottle # 280/450.

Pours a clear yellow with a white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. No lacing on this one. Smell is of grain and some sour/tart fruity aromas. Taste is pretty much the same. This beer has a higher level of carbonation with a very crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer but the carbonation level is quite high.

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 #89

Pours a lot of fizzy white head. Color is a hazed golden yellow. Leaves lace.

Aroma: Wheat with light spices and grassy hops. Citrus fruits. Very light. Some funk.

Taste: Wheat and spice. Flavors remind me of grapes. Cloves. Citrus. Fairly fruity. Not overly funky though.

Mouthfeel: Clean and bubbly. Light bodied with a higher amount of carbonation. Ends dry.

Overall, this was a very tasty beer. Extremely light and drinkable. A subtle funkness to it which I enjoyed. Nothing extreme.
