Thanks to scoobydank for this bottle of a brewery I haven't approached since having back-to-back infected bottles, albeit quite a while back. Another go? Why not. 22 oz. bottle with stark black-on-white label split with my wife after too much good Thai food.

The pour yelps 'summer!' even though it's snowing Armageddon one state over, light orange, with a head that collapses into nadda in minutes. Clear, though I left the last few ounces in the bottle. Nose is tar orange/lemon with a nice side of sour-tinged spring wheat. Promising.

White Birch Berliner Wiesse gives me hope this little brewery doesn't suck anymore. Nice citric lemon base that is neither too sour nor too wheaty. The wheat come on after the tartness passes, & finishes with a jolt of acidity. Lack of caronbation dints what should be a very drinkable beer: by halfway through it's close to dead flat.

Well not everything was perfect, but this is a pretty good beer. A few more bubbles would have jacked up my score & really turned this into a nice post-lawnmower beer.

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

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a standard pint.

A: Hazy golden hue. Lots of rising effervescence and pockets of bubbles cling to the sides of the glass. Pours a half finger, bubbly, white head which quickly dissipates leaving a slight ring of foam around the rim.

S: Tons of raspberry and banana pretty much overwhelm anything else that might come out in there.

T: Fermented raspberry and a little yeasty sourdough.

M: Light, yet syrupy. Slightly sour finish fades quickly. Comes across just a little shallow.

D: Good sipping beer.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Slight head and no real lacing, despite plenty of carbonation. Nose is very fruity, not much else. Yeasty raspberry flavor, a little light in the finish. Overall, this is a good quaff.

Slightly hazy, pale golden color with a small head that quickly settles to a thin cap. Just a few specks of lacing sticks to the glass.

Smells more like apple cider than a weissbier. Just the slightest hint of some cheesy funk.

A little more interesting flavor. I taste green apples with a slight tartness. Some funk is starting to develop with notes of cheese. Not really crisp and refreshing as I would of liked.

Undercarbonated. The style should be bordering effervescent and this is far from it. Light body.

Not fully matured. Seems this beer was rushed out the door before it had a chance to really develop. Certainly does not compare to Schell's Star of the North.

bomber into a DFH tulip/pint glass. Summer 2013 release

Pours a cloudy, hazy yellow with a very small head. The smell has a bit of a funk to it, wouldnt know it was a berliner weiss from the nose. The taste is quite different than typical beers from the style. Its definitely got that slight tartness to it but its got more of a Belgian sour style of tartness than a german one. Not complaining because its very tasty, but it doesnt seem true to style. Nevertheless its very easy drinking and refreshing. Light body with low carbonation.

overall a refreshing beer thats a bit more sour than a typical beer of the style. I dig it though.
