Thanks to Matt for this one. 22oz. into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours no head. Beer is a pale, slightly cloudy lemon. Lacing is spotty and sparse with little stick. Decent legs though. Average.

Nose is exceedingly funky. Notes of lemon, yeast and a tart cheesiness. I can't tell if I love it or hate it. Aromatic though.

Opens light tart lemon zest, citrus and wheat. Yeasty towards the middle with a sprinkling of banana floating around the lightly malty backbone. Finishes with a lemon peel bite. Slightly tart aftertaste. Solid.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick and watery in the mouth and goes down tart, crisp and refreshing. Accented finish with a lingering, sticky aftertaste. Very solid. Quenching.

The more berliner weisse beers I drink, the more and more I like the style. This one definitely contributes to that trend. Light, crisp, refreshing and super easy to drink. Definitely worth seeking out.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, wheat, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, grain, and lemon flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fairly intense sourness in the taste.

650ml bottle poured into a stemless wine glass.

The beer pours a slightly hazy golden color, hues of yellow and straw with many bubbles rising to the top of the glass. A thin, loose bubbly white head rises from beer before dissipating quickly leaving no film or lace behind. The aroma is crisp, lightly sour, a bit funky, with some lemon citrus, a bit of oakyness, strong must and grain with floral qualities. The flavors are lovely, bright citrus, tangy and tart, some vinegar sour flavors, musty grain, light funk, a bit of wildflower and chewy oak. The body is lively, crisp, very bubbly that coats the mouth well and finishes with a carbonated bite.

Verdict: Awesome berliner from Freetail, perhaps a bit sour and lemony for my tastes, but still a very refreshing and tasty beer. Its crisp, quenching and straight to the point, not overly complicated or ambitious. The oak aging was a nice touch, adds a bit of earthiness to help calm down the citrus and tanginess of the beer. Perfect afternoon beverage.
