2.83/5  rDev -34.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Let me precurse this review by saying I was very excited to try this. I heard nothing but positive things despite the difficulty in its acquisition. Poured from a bomber into a tulip, the brew appears a pale yellow color with a white froth slightly more impressive and retaining than your typical berliner.

The aroma contains some cereal graininess overall but it wraps things up there and doesnt display any more of the typical berliner charcter or adjuncts described. It is very muted, nothing bad smelling mind you...just without character even by berliner standards let alone a "floridian" version.

The taste is strikingly weird. A bit of dawn dish soap meets fresh cereal grain sweetness and ahhh there it is, a very minor lemony citrus aspect. The flavor wraps things up with a touch of watered down greek yogurt. But why the soapiness?

This is a light bodied brew with modest carbonation. The brew looks and feels good. However, the aroma is lacking and taste seems a bit off. I really question what went wrong with this, it cant possibly be what they were shooting for.

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.
