Reviewed from notes

A: very pale yellow, looks like champagne sitting in my glass, 1 finger head, no lacing

S: mostly sweetness eminates from the glass, smells like grapes, similar to champagne

T: sweet and slightly floral

M: overly carbonated

D: classic for the style, my current go to berleiner weisse only because it's the easiest one of this style for me to obtain

Cheers!

4/5  rDev -2.7%

Poured from a 500 ml. bottle. Leaves a two finger foamy white head that eventually fades to surface skim, and leaves some spotty lacing. Body is a hazy straw gold with faint orange highlights.

Smell - wheat malt, unsalted barley crackers, tart horseblanket. Simple and straightforward, but mouthwatering.

Taste - exactly as promised by the nose. Wheat malt and unsalted barley crackers washed through with tart, but pleasant horseblanket.

Mouthfeel - tart and puckering, and very effervescent.

Drinkability - this is good ale. Owing to the taste, I think this goes well with, and around appetizers, dinner, and dessert, but I don't think it would be a stand alone session beer.

Last bottle at Bottle Revolution.

Body is bright cloudy yellow. Initially HUGE white head fed by loads of carbonation quickly fades into a small ring. Decent lacing left.

The smell is unique, and not as tart as I was expecting. I get a good bit of hefe yeast esters (sweet banana and uber sweet bubble gum), but then theres a powdery tart lemon candy thing. hint of funk as well.

Now the taste is something I can get on board with. Crisp wheat base is noticeable, but not dominant but the banana bread feeling is. Hint of clove as well. Tart lemon is delicate and subdued, but there. It feels more acidic and sour than it tastes (which is odd and hard to explain). I just get more banana than acidic tartness.

Its dry, crisp, and clean (something I expect from German beers). Banana lingers late, but eventually gives way to a chewy malt.

The warmer and longer it sits, the more tart the lemon gets, making this even better.
