Pours a pale yellow with a small white head.

The smell is sour lemons and wheat.

The taste is sour lemons, very tart.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

I really enjoyed this beer, sour lemons and wheat tastes great. Will be a great choice for in the summer.

16.9 oz bottle $6. I haven't had many chances to grab an authentic berliner so I snapped this up. Light yellow color, hazy, good head. Smells tart, lemon, wheat. Flavor was wheat cracker, very subtle lemon, so easy to drink on a hot day. I could kill a lot of these if given the chance, solid beer.

a very true to style berliner weiss here. pours cloudy lemon colored with a smallish white head that fades out after just a minute or two. the smell is very sour and citrusy, acidic for sure, and refreshing. there is a lot of lemon in the flavor, tart like lemon juice from concentrate, and the wheat malt does little to calm that down. there is also a funk sort of yeast, almost saisony. i really like the mouthfeel too. its got more carbonation than the appearance shows, and the body is super light. the acidity at the end is a little harsh, but on a hot summer day this would be just right. its not one of those beers id want to get drunk on though, too much acidity would turn the stomach around. it is a very refreshing berliner though, one of the better versions ive had really, and for under 7 bucks a bottle, its a nice buy.
