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.

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!

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.
