Its a different flavor, interesting for a sour but not my thing.

Poured into a chalice. Or goblet. I dunno, tall stemmed thing with an almost egg-shaped portion for holding beer. Pours a light, golden color with about a half-inch of white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is light and sweet, a dash of lemon within a more robust scent of white grape.

Light and refreshing. Tartness takes a second a to really reach in but is very refreshing and not overwhelming, with tones of lemon and citrus. Pale malt character lingers after a sip, but mutes considerably as it warms. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Carbonation is moderate and gets a bit fluffy the longer it sits.

I haven't had many Berliner weisses, but this is the best among those I've tried. With others, I've felt the need to mix it with something to get a little more flavor (ginger beer is a favorite), but White Birch's attempt is flavorful enough on its own. Kudos for a great summer beer.
