Not sure if the on-tap syrup option is throwing this beer off cause I have not tried that. But on its own I think it's great. Nice refreshing light bodied beer with good tartness. A little sip went a long way for me in the flavor department but I could put them down fast without a little self restraint.

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.

22oz bottle split between a pair of snifters. Bottle brought in a suitcase from Chicago by my in-laws. 06/10/2015 is the date stamped on the shoulder of the bottle.

Pours a little cloudy, yellow amber, with no head, and moderate carbonation. Smell is funk, lemon, and not much else. Smells good.

Taste is unripe green grape tart, green apple tart, and a little bit of can-of-pears-juice sweetness. It has a very sharp tartness that makes me think of sweet-tarts, but more fruity.

Mouthfeel is smooth and surprisingly effervescent. Overall, quite nice beer.

Dated September 2015, I think. Stamp is kinda smeared. Today is October 6. Poured into a glass. Bubbles disappear like seltzer water. Cloudy yellow appearance. Taste is cidery vinegary sour nastiness. I love FFF but this one is ridiculous. I can't believe all the positive reviews. Did I get a bad bottle or what? Not one bad review? Really?

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.

Bottle (2013)

Acquired via trade
Thanks, Hugonaut13!

A pleasant American wild ale/sour, but this didn't really resemble a berliner much at all. Quite tasty at colder temperatures, but it began to fall apart as it warmed. A bit of a white/green grape character is present along with moderate sourness throughout. Some vinegar. A decent sour from Three Floyds, but an unrepresentative berliner.

A - Light golden / orange with a clear body and light carbonation. Not much of a head with small carbonation sitting on the side

S - Sweet tarts, sour apple, bit of Chardonnay, lemon peel, and lactic acid. It is tart but has a light sweetness to it as well

T - Tart lemon, sour apple, and lactic acid that gives it a nice crisp bite. The finish is dry white wine with a tart lactic acid presence that lingers

MF - Crisp with good carbonation that goes well with the beer

O - Nice tart and refreshing Berliner. It isn't too complex but it gets the light tart profile just right. Definitely a beer to sit on the porch and drink during the hotter months

(Served in a chalice)

A- This beer pours a deep copper clear body with a thick mousse tan head. A gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles feeds this rock solid head.

S- This beer has a very light tart hint with a faint noble hop bitterness. Not what I expected for this style

T- The taste of pale malt has a very light hint of tartness that is a bit more earthy than tart. The finish is a dry noble hop finish that hangs on the breath like many BMCs. Where is the flavor?

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a tight fizz texture in the crisp finish.

D- This beer has no characteristics of a Berliner Weiss but had a good head and light mouthfeel. Where are the wild sour notes? I'm glad I didn't get any syrup added, and why do you served a 3% ABV beer in a chalice?
