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.

Review #700. Bottle 27/450. Poured from a 22oz. foiled and capped bottle 22oz. bottle into an oversized Southampton snifter. Shared by schen9303. Time to try a slightly different reviewing style!

Color is clear goldenrod. Coarse white head with poor retention. Nice lace. Decent clarity for the style.

Nose is super clean. Yeasty. Lemon, yogurt, white grape, and lactose. Really aromatic and appetizing.

Lemon, white grape, yeasty. Mellow taste. Finish is yeasty with a filmy aftertaste. Really clean and delicious.

Light bodied with high carbonation. Goes down easy but aggressive. Really drinkable. Exactly what I want from the style.

Not close to what this one is on tap but its still one of the most solid berliner weisse beers I've ever had. A definite under-the-radar offering.

A big thanks goes out to discord257 for sending this one my way in a very recent trade! Bottle #313 of 450. Served from bottle into a Boulevard Smokestack tulip. Poured a fluorescent yellow with a pure white one finger head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart, subtle sour, and citrus rine. The flavor was of sweet malt, tart, sour, and citrus. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. There was a lot more of a citrus aspect going on in this one that I would have expected if I am honest. The appearance on this one was really nice as it seemed to glow while you were looking at it. I really hope to get the opportunity to try the original Berliner from Southampton in the future based on this one. A definite must try.

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 #444 share by Javier, thanks!

A: Slightly hazy dark yellow with an enormous pillowy white head. Much lacing.

S: Lemon, wheat, faint sulfur, and a prominent lactic presence. Lightly phenolic with some pepper.

T: Lightly tart up front with lots of wheat and a pervasive lactic sourness. Lemon blends with a light spiciness. Finishes dry and lightly tart.

M: Very high carbonation and light in body.

Overall: Highly drinkable and quite enjoyable. Recommended.

Thanks to Steve for this one. Bottle #61.

Pours very foamy into a hefeweizen glass; when it settles down, there's a dense, pale head on a slightly hazy yellow and bubbly beer. The smell is crisp minerals in faint vinegar, with some citric notes and a little graininess. The taste is a little sweet upfront, more like corn than sugar, with a mild sourness through the middle and a hint of bitterness at the end. It's quite fizzy, which offsets the full body quite well. An excellent beer, though not quite as tart as I'd hoped it would be.
