Very large frothy head that breaks down fairly fast on a cloudy dull golden body. A lot of tropical fruit, mostly pineapple and tangerine with clover and other herbs, musty grains and tangy notes. Flavor is also fairly tart and tangy but not too over done. Its is bit watery. The finish has a decent amount of wheat with candy sugar. Additional yeast, grass and pepper notes but they are mild contributors. Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. I liked this one but it doesn't stand out from others I have had.

A small head of white foam on a hazy, golden body. An earthy aroma of hay and barnyard with some lemon. Lots of tartness up front with notes of coriander and more funk. Finishes with lemon and pepper as well as more grassy hay. Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish. Nicely done, there is a level of complexity one rarely sees in this style, though it is almost too musty and I would be afraid it might get a bit septic tasting if not consumed fresh.

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.

Thanks to JISurfer for hooking me up with this. 750ml into a westbrook snifter. The brew appears a perfectly clear golden yellow color with a white finger that slowly fades. Rising bubbles maintain a thin film across the top.

The aroma is bright with a fruity lemony lactic character. A little bit of sweet smelling fresh grains like wheat and/or crackers. More smells bring a focus of fruit back in the picture thats not just lemony but also a bit like pear or apple.

The flavor is tart and lemony lactic with a bit of bready grain, somewhat cereal-like or bready/crackerish but provides a freshness about it without any supporting sweetness. Like the nose suggested, more sips bring out a deeper fruity quality like pear/apple. The apple flavor is pretty solid but never gets to feeling like cider which is a good thing.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is clean, snappy, fresh, inviting and overall very easy drinking. After having a couple different brews by Westbrook that are in the same vein as berliners per say, I can firmly state im a fan of these guys and they really know what they are doing.

The beer is pale golden with a thick, hissing, white head that fades rapidly. The aroma brings lemons, grass, grain. A decent amount of tartness with some acidity in the finish. Pleasant puckering mouth feel. Light in body with ample carbonation. A solid example of the style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass. Bottled March 29th 2013.

A slow decant still provides a mild cloudy hazy lemon brown brass body, with lots of cola sized carbonation. Mixed in is some small carbonation bubbles also. Head comes up large with lots of snapping sound and bright white. Settles like soda pop and falls very quickly barely leaving a thin collar.

Nose has a mild tart lemon, but a real big wheat chewy density. Hints almost at lemongrass herb also. It has a great bouquet.

Tart and peach puckering on first sip, with a light body. Chewy wheat body follows on the swallow with a great malt bread density. Citrus angle and huge fruit flavor ranging from citrus, to tropical, to even hints of berried like tart fruit on this. Carbonation seems also toned down compared to what is visible. The feel is both also light and dense.

This is quite a good tasty berliner very impressed with it, a near perfect fruity summer beer.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a pale yellow color and a cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy/fizzy head that lasted a fair amount of time. Not a whole lot of lacing.

S: A sweet aroma of malt, citrus, and a spicy element.

T: Tasted of citrus (a bit of grapefruit), some malt, an indeterminate spice, and salt in the finish. Tasted exactly like a Berliner Weissbier should taste. Light, refreshing, and sweet.

M: A highly carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: Very enjoyable, easy to drink beer. Certainly a session beer, given its low ABV%. Drinkable.

Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (proper!). Poured a slightly hazy pale golden yellow with a one finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount almost instantly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tart, sour, passion fruit, and subtle guava. The flavor was of sweet malt, tart, sour, passion fruit, wheat, earth, and fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. This one really reminded me of cmrillo's homebrewed Berliner that he made awhile back. I really enjoyed his and now I can honestly say that I am really enjoying this one as well. The nose on this one is really nice and balanced. The flavor is more of the same, but it has just enough balance to make it really easy to drink and enjoyable as well. If you are a fan of fruited Berliners with a little more of an acidic aspect going on this one is definitely right up you alley without a doubt.

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.
