Here is a beer that I think people have a hard time rating without the proper exposure to the style. Having tried about 7 different Berliner Weisse brews from commercial breweries, and many many homebrew attempts, I think this beer is the perfect example of the style. The smell is clean with a touch of wheat/grain, yet you still get that touch of lacto vinegar and citrus. The flavor is well rounded and features citric acid and light grains. It is the perfect level of sour, and the carbonation is spot on. I love this beer and could drink it all day. The only part that isn't perfect is the head, which didn't seem to last long. But who cares about that with a stellar berliner like this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

poured out of a fresh growler into a pint glass.

pours a nice hazy light yellow color thats somewhat clear with almost no head.

amazing sharp smell with a great wheat spicyness to it.

this beer is flat out tasty it is amazing how much flavor is crammed into this beer for such a low ABV, its got a nice sharp citrus sour funk to it and yet still has some spice and smoothness from the wheat.

great mouth feel and drink ability extremely refreshing easy to drink and just a flat out tasty beer. Wish I still lived close enough for growler fills.

Fo a Berliner this is one of the best I have tasted. I hope to duplicate this in a homebrew some time. It is verytasty.

poured into a Weihenstephan weizen glass. Perfect color. Very light but cloudy. Nice head formed but dissapated to a thin film. If it had a better head it would look perfect.

Smells a little more funky than some of the ones from Germany I have had but I love the smell.

Taste is awesome. Not too tart. A slight funk from the Bret. And a nice wheaty flavor. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel is perfect. High carb and predict viscosity.

Drinkability is high. Jm aboutto drink the whole 750 myself. I could drink sever pints at a bar.
