look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

500ml bottle sealed with pressure cap

poured into Side Project wine stem.

Appearance: translucent, bright, and glowing straw yellow bodied beer. Massive 3 fingers of bone white head with pretty good staying power. Eventually the beer drops down to a thin cap with a ring around the glass.

Smell: musty wet hay, lemons, granny smith apples, pears, yeasty, grainy, slight spiciness.

Taste: Mild tartness. Lots of lemony citrus flavor. Pears, white grape and a hint of green apple. Not much funk noticed. Slightly spicey, grainy, and yeasty. very faint cheesy funk; I could use substantually more lacto funk in this beer.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation levels. Zippy and eppervescent carbonation. Super drinkable and extremely refreshing. Bright and crisp mouthfeel.

Overall: Solid beer, but this berlinner weisse does not have that level of cheesy/greek yogert funkiness that you get from the Lactobacillus. It does have saison like qualities and its still a pretty enjoyable beer. It is a beer thats definately worthy of revisit during the heat of the summer. Hot weather session beer for sure.

Serving type: bottle

This pours light straw and translucent. A thick fine bubble head slowly retreats to a minimal rim. No laces. It takes a while to settle. Excellent clarity. The smell is mainly dusty grain with a little sourness. The taste however is very different. Fairly tart with a light malt presence. Minor notes of white grapes, oak, and wheat. High carbonation, light body, and mostly smooth. This is a great summer time and or lunch ale. I highly recommend this ale if you are a fan if sours.

Serving type: on-tap

Tall head that quickly recedes to nothing, with no lacing. Cloudy straw yellow/lemonade color. Smell is lactic acid, lemon, and bready, and the taste mostly follows this. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a dry finish. A nice example of the Berliner Weisse style.
