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.

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!

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
