3.78/5 rDev -1.6%
On-tap at Beachwood Brewing
The beer is a hazy golden color with a thin white head. A very strong lemon aroma followed by nearly as much banana. Some fairly strong vanilla and maybe a bit of butterscotch. A hint of wheat and straw on the finish. As with the aroma, really heavy on the lemon and banana. Some straw, wheat, and grass give a touch of depth and complexity. I would have preferred a little less sweetness.

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA
Hazy golden straw in color with a moderately sized near-white head that doesn't leave much stick to the glass. Pretty and appropriate for the style.
Pleasant aroma combining lemon, mild wheat and grain, and a distinct fruity acidity.
The flavors combine together remarkably well, with lots of bittersweet, authentic, lemon character, wheat and grain, and lots of powerful sourness. This is far more sour than a typical berliner.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
This isn't at all a typical berliner, with a fairly high ABV for the style. That being said, it's downright delicious and incredibly drinkable.

On tap at The Surly Goat in West Hollywood, CA.
Pours a murky yellow with an off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is ridiculously funky and wild with sweaty socks and cheesy aromas. Kind of gross to be honest. Taste is much better however but is also very funky and wild with a lactic acid quality to it. This beer has a light carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the aroma is tough to get over.

on tap at the Crow Bar
Appearance - thick golden yellow (ochre) haze. Cloudy but consistent. No head on pour.... amateur?
Smell - tart. More fruity than citrus.
Taste - tart tart tart like a traditional Berliner Weisse but not over powering and fairly well balanced. A lot of citrus - orange, lemon. A tad farmhouse funk and wheat. Citrus rind bitterness comes through on the back end. The abv is hidden well.
Mouthfeel - heavily carbonated and acidic.
Overall - Good take on the style. Was told it was sour, but tasted more tart. Extremely refreshing, sessionable, and balanced enough for the novice / casual drinker. A great beer on a sunny afternoon picnic.

On-tap at Blind Lady. Interesting find, and still very happy about finding sours more and more. First off, this isn't what I would typically call a Berliner Weisse. Alcohol is too high, a little too sour, body too heavy. It's still a good beer though.
Cloudy yellow with a creamy head that didn't really recede. Looks like a paler version of a hefeweizen.
Tangy citrus aroma where the citrus comes not from hops but from acid.
Deep flavor dominated by lemon juice. Wheaty and a little chalky. Some funk too, which fits nicely with the body of the beer which is heavy for a Berliner Weisse. Creamy carbonation, but somehow also sparkly? Hard to describe.
Good enough that I went back for a second pour despite a massive tap list. Best brew I've had from Craftsman so far.

On-tap at Beachwood I,
A: Pours a medium yellow-orange with a full creamy white head, almost nitro looking. Good retention, very nice lace.
S: Strawberry shortcake and orange creamsicle, a very interesting nose, sweet and sour mix.
T: Lemon and malt with that intriguing strawberry flavour. Good lactic play, a nice balance of flavours.
M: Nowhere near as dry as an average Berliner, that's okay. Medium acidity, soft carbonation, easy drinking.
O: An interesting Berliner weisse, more of a Hefe-Berliner hybrid. Nevertheless, it tastes good, is well made, well worth a try.

Pours a hazy yellow hue with a small white head and there is hardly any carbonation.
Smell has a wheat/ hay like aroma followed by a nice tart citrus aroma. Much like lemon zest.
Taste is very tart and acidic. A very refreshing beer. Even though it has more alcohol that a normal Berliner it is still very smooth and easy drinking.
Mouthfeel is crisp and light. I probably could have drank a ton of these.

T- Extremely sour lingering flavor.
M- Light and little carbonation. Very clean finish.
O- Wasn't expecting such a sour beer. Quite a surprise. Enjoyable!

On tap at the Toronado in San Diego. The bartender confirmed the ABV from the keg for me (6.1%).
This beer pours a cloudy yellow color with nice white foam that settles. The aroma is lemon citrus and some subdued malt sweetness. The flavor is tart and acidic with a nice punch of lactic acid that hits the front of your tongue. Flavors of lemon and Kaffir Lime leaves. A pleasant sourness lingers in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is crisp with light body and moderate carbonation feel. Light on the tongue and very refreshing. Overall a very nice Berlinerweissbier, though of higher ABV than I've seen before.
