look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Purchased at Liquor Shed.

A hazy straw yellow pour with 3 fingers of foam.

It smells earthy, with lemon citrus that imparts both tart and spicy notes.

Lemony, yeasty, peppery, very dry on the palate.

Light body with perhaps too much co2.

This is very nice.

A - Hazy pale yellow, like a slighty more colorful lemon juice without the pulp.

S - Banana, clove, wheat; just like a Bavarian hefe, with a slight sharp twinkle in the background.

T - Big banana, clove, and wheat taste, again, very much a Bavarian hefeweizen, with a pronouced mild tartness that instantly makes you think of lemons with white grape skins. Fantastic and refreshing.

M - Very bubbly and effervescent, with a heaviness between that of a standard every-day Berliner and a gold-standard hefeweizen, ie Weihenstephaner.

O - Recommended. Great summer Berliner, not very tart, but very flavorful, especially for 5% abv.

November 6, 2014

500 ml bottle, tulip

A – Huge, three to four inches plus, fluffy, dense, creamy white head, slowly droping down to a few centimeters sitting on top of a straw to very light gold. Hazy, fairly thin appearance.

S – Lemon, bright citrus, and tartness and lactobacillus. Very fresh, slightly creamy. Some floral, earthy, and citric hop bitterness.

T – Lemon is highly prominent, the lactic acid from the lactobacillus is very tart but not mouth-puckering. Very little malt or hop flavor, if any. A refreshing brightness to the flavor.

M – Very highly carbonated, but a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Feels thick and sudsy. Tartness is not overwhelming. Extremely dry finish.

O – Not quite what I expected in my first Berliner Weisse, as the tart is fairly mild in comparison to the standard in the style. However, this is an excellent, tasty, very refreshing beer, that I could go back to over and over again.
