750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a hazy pale yellow color witha huge white head that fades leaving spotty lace.

It smells bretty and carbonic with mild yeasty phenolics.

This tastes yeasty then has something like pear juice with clove, wheat and sulfur. Not really clean and lemony lactic like I prefer for my berliners. Instead this feels like a funky mild belgian.

This is light in body with huge effervescent carbonation. Not bad, not good.

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.

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

A - Pale yellow fairly opaque in a large wine glass. There's not much foam or head retention. An attractive beer. It looks like a Berliner Weisse.

S - Clove phenolics, peppery with classic wheat grain aroma.

T - This beer is coming off as more of a Belgian white beer, but that's fine great style. Taste follows aroma, phenolic clove, spicy with some tangy citrus, but not sour.

M -Medium light body

O - A very worthwhile experience. Again not so much to Berliner Weisse style, but a great white wheat.

Poured from a 750 to duvel tulip.
Hazy straw color, two fingers of snowy whhite head, tight small bubbles. Nose has some wheat, malt, spicy yeast, hint (almost imperceptable) of tart. Tastes like a well done wit bier. Wheat and malt working well, a bit a citrus zest, not getting the lacto as much as I would like. Well carbonated and dry as a bone, easy to drink. Overall, I went into this beer expecting more berlinner and less wit, unfortunately the lacto didn't come through and left me wanting somethiing with a bit more bite. It is a refreshing beer that I will buy more of, just not when I want a berlinner weiss.
