Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Cigar City pint glass.
A: Hazy pale gold, with a thin white head and fairly low levels of visible carbonation.
S: Low aroma overall - a bit grainy, husky wheat, mild fruity sweetness and a touch of tartness. Not much else.
T: Bright mandarin oranges and tangerines, wheat with less husk character than the smell suggested. Mildly sour - more just a light fruity tartness, but still mild. Unfortunately, the tart, dry, and orange characters combine to give the impression of Bayer's children's aspirin. A moderate lactic tartness with orange flavors last into the hang.
M: Light body, average carbonation sensation, low alcohol presence.
O: Far from the best so-called Florida Weisse, but nicely drinkable. The orange flavors were not unpleasant but had an artificial undertone I could have done without. Worth trying, but not anything outstanding.

Fifth & last bottle from the CC anniversary series, picked up during our Huna Day visit to same. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.
The pour is light yellow to the extreme, bordering on white wine, with a dimpling of carbonation. Nose is refreshing, with plenty of citrus & light acidity. Nice start.
5 Beers for 5 Years - Florida Weisse makes my scrotum pucker...in a really good way. Light tartness flows into my oral cavity & spikes my serotonin. Gentle fruits set off the acidity, citrus comes on stronger in the mid-palate. Finishes with a bit or orange & lemon, but that refreshing tart character flows through every drop of the beer. I could drink this during my morning constitutional every day.
This is a wonderfully crafted Berliner & the fruit just adds a lovely touch. If this were readily available in cans or bottles, this would be a summer staple. Simple, direct, excellent.
