look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 3/29/13.

Appearance - Hazy pale yellow. Pours with a decent head but it doesn't last.

Smell - Very green and grassy. Grain and a little acidity.

Taste - Very grainy. A little bit of citrus tang. Sourness builds. Grassy flavors are back and a little offensive.

Mouthfeel - Light with high carbonation. Not super sour.

Overall - The "green" flavor is not pleasant. Almost vegetal.

Thanks to AtlCarl for sending this along in a late summertime trade, & it seems like the kind of beer that ought to be put down before Minnesota freezes solid. Big 750ML bottle, too big for my little girl hands, but not bad for holding beer.

And let us pause to appreciate the bad '90's pun of the beer (though I quizzed a couple of kids at the Great Taste about "Bo & Luke" from Against the Grain & they admitted they didn't have any idea the beer was referencing anything). Pour is sheer white gold, light enough to be mistaken for a Pinot Gris. Aroma jumps off the surface: barely green apples, lightly acidic, spicy, lemon, all sorts of wildness. For a low ABV beer, this has more layers than a head onion.

Weisse Weisse Baby is more pucker up than amber waves of grain. As with too many soured beers, the wonderful complexity of the nose gives way to a few repetitive notes plunked out on the tongue: tartness than leans into sour, long/lean wheat, drizzle of lemon. Bit low on carbonation for the style, which lowers the drinkability, too.

Dah. If the aroma was bottled, this would be a fantastic beer. As is, there's a gaping chasm between nose & mouth which leaves me wanting more. Pretty good.

750 ml bottle served in a Westbrook snifter. Bottled 3/29/13. Thanks to rnorgart for the bottle!

A: This gushed on the initial pop so watch out. Pours a hazy peach color with a quick dissolving white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring. No lace is left down the glass.

S: Cracked wheat with a soft sweetness to it. Very light acidic background to it with a slight hint of cheese.

T: Slight hints of lemon grass with a sweet wheat background. Slightly tart with just the slightest hint of cheese. The mix of sweetness, tartness and funk is enough to keep everything interesting.

M: Light bodied with a high carbonation level. The finish is slightly wheat-like.

O: Light, refreshing, and bubbly. The drinkability is spot on and the flavor profile isn't far behind. Definitely enjoyed drinking this.

750mL bottle into a tulip
Bottled on: 3/29/13

A: Pours a slightly hazy, very light pale yellow. Kind of looks like urine to be honest with you. 2 fingers width of bright white head is very fizzy like soda, and dissipates down quickly. Leaves zero lacing.

S: Wheat, a funky hay-type aroma, manure, herbaceous, very earthy. It reminds be of a country meadow on a spring day. I get effectively no tart/citrus/lactic/sour notes at all. Aromas are strong for such a light looking beer.

T: Lactic sourness is significant from the first sip. There are lots of hay, grassy herbaceous, lemongrass, and some floral notes. This is pretty funky to me as well, with manure and barnyard funk flavors throughout. I love the lactic tart sourness, but the funky wet hay/barnyard notes aren't really my thing.

M/D: Light, crisp, moderate to heavy carbonation. Drinkability is good but not great considering the light body and minimal ABV.

O: I love sour beers. Gueuze's are one of my favorite styles, Wild Ales are up there too, and I recently was blown away by Westbrook's Gose. That being said I dont think Berliner Weisse's are for me. The tart lactic components are nice, but some of the other components are really off for my personal preferences. Ive give the style a couple more tries before I completely scrap it. I will try to rate to style though. So as for this particular one, its pretty good and I think its true to style. It has some very good qualities. I don't hate it, but I dont love it either.

Bottle from The Festival in Portland.

Hazy wheat yellow-orange pale colored, light fizzy head fades quickly to nothing.

Nose has plenty of wheat, straw, little toasted cream of wheat, fermented corn, light sour apple

Taste is like apple cider, light vinegar, then more fermented corn and wet hay, grassy, yeasty, little bready and cracker crumbs, quite sour.

Mouth is lighter bod, crisp but very sour.

On-tap at Tørst.

Light-golden pour with a fizzy and dissipating, white head. Smells of fresh wheat, light green apple tartness, and a subtle honey-like sweetness. Very clean.

Drinks incredibly well– clean, crisp, and refreshing with a nice, mellow tartness on the finish. True to the Berliner Weissbier style. Can seriously drink this without any remorse or regret, especially with beautiful weather. A beer of sessions, indeed.

Hope to come across some bottles for the summer!
