look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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.

Poured from a 22oz bottle. The beer pours with no head whatsoever. The beer itself looks like a BMC lager, moderate to low carbonation, no head, and a medium clear copper color.

The smell is quite subtle, there are clear hints of malt, and just a hint of some acidic twang.

The taste is fairly clean upfront, a bit crisp, and then it fades immediately to a slightly sweet, slightly tangy (in a ciderish, apple juice, lemony, citrus sort of way). It is quite light and none to overpowering with sourness.

In terms of beers that exhibit any acidity, this beer is probably a 2/10 on my sour scale.

This is an interesting beer, but not something that I am likely to buy again. I like berliners to be much more tangy and sour.

Brewed Summer 2013 this is a little old but I don't believe that matters so much for this style.

Hazy straw color with a towering, white head. Head thins to a meandering spit wad. Smells chapagne-ish. Barn and stale sweat. Tastes like tart unripened peaches.

I bought this to compare to Jamil’s berliner that I just brewed. White Birch’s rendition is far superior and that’s no fault of Jamil.
