A fine example of an American Berliner Weisse. Really is. The real deal here. My mini-review, from notes:
A. Hazy pale straw, short, fizzy head that falls to naught. Of course, cloudy, as it should be.
S. Ah ha! Sour-lemon, wheat, very fresh and clean, yet almost soft. Pale and no hops to be found, just that sort of 'raw' wheat and grain bill, perhaps a little grassy, tempered with sour-mash goodness.
T. Long sour lemon, dry, grainy, quite good. This is 6.4%? Clean, refreshing, eye-opening . Simple, direct, cleansing. Gosh, I don't know what to say... I want more though.
M / D. Well nigh perfect, they've nailed this one. Full carbonation, spritzy, long, inviting more.
This is my first White Birch beer, but I have to say, they've got this one down cold. If you like Berliner Weisse on the bigger, sourer side, like I do, then this is one to seek out. Nicely done, chaps! Thanks to Todes and Bobby8405 for sharing.

Yellowish-beige in color; very cloudy - opaque. A small white head when poured that immediately disappears without a trace. While initially lots of small carbonation is apparently, it dies down quickly and then the beer seems quite flat. Overall not much in terms of appearance. Faint sour smell; not much aroma. Taste starts off very acidic and citrusy, progresses to a lemon-like sour taste, then progresses to a smooth wheat flavor and ends with a slightly sour and dry finish. I must admit it is very, very refreshing. It was nice on a warm summer evening. Light to medium in body, starts with a definite frizzy feeling in your mouth followed by a tart, dry finish. Overall a decent light sour, though nothing spectacular. I would drink again, especially on a warm summer day.
