My beer guru brought this one over to split. Ourstanding appearance, very good smell, and unreal taste. Would describe it as a sour but lighter. Very easy to drink and very clean on the finish. I really wish we could get more of this style here in Maryland.

I've been looking far and wide for a good Berlinner Weisse and thanks to the BA community this one was recommended and I found a bottle while on travel in San Antonio Texas of all places. It didn't let down. It was definitely a beer that could be drank in mass quantity and very very sessionable. To describe it? I'd say it mostly resembles the flavor of a fine German Hef/wheat beer but not quite as much banana/clover sweetness and replaced with a subtle tart/sourness. Very subtle though and nothing puckering like some Flanders reds or wilds. It goes down sweet in the middle with tartness then finishes very clean with virtually no aftertaste or dryness at all.

This is an amazing beer and provides a very unique and different spin on what flavors can be found in beer. I highly recommend. Just wish this could be found more easily in Maryland. I've never seen it anywhere.
