2.5/5  rDev -38.3%

Poured from the 750ml. bottle into an Erdinger Weisebier glass

a: Clear urine gold with an enormous white head which receded quickly to almost nothing, no lacing.

s: Pungent ripe or overripe fruit.

t: Very sour overripe fruit. Bitter finish.

m: Light plus.

o: Might have been a bad bottle, but the label does say it is a "Berlin Style Tart Wheat Ale." And tart it is, to the point of making your mouth pucker and your eyes close and your face wince. The label also says "Sour=Yum." Not here. An $8 drain pour for me.

Slight vinegary aroma, which is slightly in the taste and mouthfeel. No lacing.Body light yellow, hazy.
Flavor is very tart and lemony, very much a mouth puckering sour, but light with no alcohol, no hops, no malt. Which isn't bad at all.

This a very tart, refreshing Berliner Weise. Some earthy notes, and tastes on this beer.

4.35/5  rDev +7.4%

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Slight vinegary aroma
Head average (4 cm), white, fizzy, quickly diminishing to nothing
No lacing
Body light yellow, hazy
Flavor is very tart and lemony, nearly pucker-able, but light with no alcohol, no hops, no malt, and no diacetyl
Palate is light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

This a very tart, refreshing Berliner Weise. The rapidly diminishing head and lack of lacing are the only detrimental aspects for me.
