3.83/5  rDev -0.8%

650ml bottle, 2014 release, poured into a stemless wine glass.


The beer pours a golden copper color, hues of straw and orange, lightly hazy with a finger or so of white head, low retention that yields no lace. The aroma is of tart lemon, green apple, pale grain and mineral qualities, simple and inviting. The flavors mirror nicely, tart citrus, apples, light funkiness, pale grain with fairly minerally at the finish. The body is lively, bubbly and crisp, ample carbonation that prickles the mouth and finishes with light sharpness but is generally easy.


Verdict: A very refreshing beer from Three Floyds and easily one of the simplest beers they've made. Fairly true to style, although much higher ABV, although you'd hardly notice the difference between this and a 2-3% ABV berliner. Perhaps a bit too acidic, but thirst quenching nonetheless.

Nose: tangy, lemony, some fruit and light wheat.
Hazy gold and very effervescent with a quickly descending bone white 2” foam cap.
Light body with Champagne quality carbonation.
The palate has a tart lemony breadiness.
Overall the beer is dry, crisp, tart and refreshing. Excellent summer beer and a good example of the Berliner Weisse style.

Clear golden straw color with a fizzy white and short-lived head.

Very simplistic lemon and slightly tart aroma. Light grass.

Tart lemon, grainy, and green apple.

Very crisp and light. Quenching.

It drinks like a standard Berliner Weiss despite the abv being higher than true to style. No frills here, and I appreciate that.
