750ml bottle, split

I don't think this is properly classified as a berliner, despite claiming to be inspired by the style. I think the 'belgian-style ale' printed on the front of the label is more accurate of a descriptor.

So with that said, this isn't really anything like a berliner. Not overly tart - flavor profile dominated by lemon peel, coriander, belgian yeast, grass. Earthy and tasty, but a bit forgettable when put up against the rest of the funkwerks portfolio

The label says this is "inspired by the sessionable German Berliner Weisse," but also that it's a "Belgian-Style Ale." Whatever category, this is really is an excellent sudsy light-bodied brew. The slightly tart sensation is just right and the spritzy mouthfeel is perfect and spews suds to the last pour.

Flavor is like a lighter Saison with a dose of Hefeweizen-style fruity and sweet-tinged flavor. Not much aroma. The warm, toasted malt is a delightful start to each sip, but the slightly tart taste makes is thoroughly refreshing. Plus you want another gulp. It's a little woody. Just what a Farmhouse style of beer should be.

Overall this is a tremendously drinkable beer and I am delighted to read that Funkwerks is experimenting with lighter and less alcoholic grews. This one is really worth a try, even at twelve bucks. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Wine & Liquors in Denver.

750 ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy yellow gold with a big meringue like white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is wheaty malts with some lemon peel and some earthy yeast and a little soapiness.

The flavor is sweet fruity wheat malts with a slight tart twang at the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall, a nice soft fruity wheat with some tart sourness. A nice lighter beer, but a bit pricey to buy much of.

great to be back in Colorado, and beer like this is a big reason why. wow I have missed stuff like this. this new funkwerks offering is exquisite, both as a Berliner Weiss and as something unique. it pours an electric yellow color, a little muted from some suspended yeast, and showcasing a large white fizzy head. the nose on this is wonderful, lemony lacto is dominant over white wheat malt and a pucker dry Belgian yeast. the flavor is sort of gentle at first, citrusy and lemon zesty more than anything else. the acidic lacto comes in next, drying and more than tart, and finally a relaxed yeast driven finish. not a sour beer, but the tartness stays with me long after the swallow. this is delicate and memorable, an expertly crafted bottle of beer. I love the simple elegance here, just what it should be. carbonated like champagne and just enough body, this drinks pretty easy. overall a beer of superb quality from funkwerks, one of the originals and best in the game at beers like this.
