White Birch Berliner Weisse pours a slightly hazy yellow with a decent head that fades. The aroma is fairly sour and grainy, but not overpowering. The flavor is quite tart, very crisp and refreshing. The sourness hits right away and lingers, the beer is quite dry overall. There is an odd, sour wortiy character in the finish, but it's mild and I'm guessing is a by product of the lacto. I don't have a ton of experience with the style, but this is the best commercial example I'm had.

22 ounce bottle, bottled Summer 2013, 5.5% ABV. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head that didn't stay around for too long. There isn't much lacing. Aroma is light, it smells like apricots, bready malt/wheat, and some lemon peel. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there's the addition of some apple juice (adds some sweet flavors in this brew) and green apples. I think the brew has more tartness compared to the aroma. However, the tartness isn't exactly strong at all. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit coating and easy enough to drink. It's not a bad brew at all, but not one of the better Berliner Weisses I've tried. I can't complain too much at $4.99 a bomber. It's worth a try at that price.

Hazy light orange appearance, almost no head. Smells like light piss neon straw, medicinal nose, grassy, hay, wild yeast, dry, milky sweet; almost smells like stinky cheese. Taste isn't much better than aroma of lemon, zest, yeast and sour milk. The drinkability isn't very pleasant; definitely not a very good presentation of the Berliner Weiss Style!! This is another typical White Birch brew that bombs for me! I've had way too many bottles from these guys in the past that weren't much better.
