For Raul's 400th review he is doing it right well with this Golden Road Berliner Weiss on tap at Hollingshead's in Orange, CA.

Pours a cloudy lemonade yellow like way back when when Raul was slangin' the stuff on the corner for .25 cents a cup. Aroma is nice and yeasty like your Oma baking bread in the early morning. Taste? Yeah. Nice and tart and crisp like a player would want it.

This sucker is just smooth, light, and ready to be hopped on like Behati Prinsloo on page 27 of the painted on bikini section of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

Yep!

On Tap

2012 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest
Paso Robles, CA

Hazy but bright yellow with a moderately-sized off-white head that eventually leaves messy, irregular splotches of lace down the glass.

The aroma is bright and powerful: lemon, mild funk, wheat, and lots of stinging sour character. This already seems far more sour than a typical berliner, though it smells great.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with lots of lactic sour character from sip to swallow. There's also good amounts of wheat, bread, lemon, and citrus zest. A complete and powerfully flavorful sour, though an atypically sour berliner. This one brings the sourness to a degree I've yet to experience in another beer of this style.

Medium to full in body for the style with moderate-high carbonation.

A fantastic and mighty tasty sour, though not at all a typical berliner. This was the surprise hit of the Firestone Invitational.

On tap in the middle of the day during the Firestone Walker 2013 festival.

I had already had about a dozen pours when I came across this beer I had been eagerly awaiting the opportunity to drink.

Poured out a faint yellow with distinguished amount of clarity. White head, 1/2" in size when projected into a pint size pour. Ample amounts of tartness, lemon and wheat in the aroma.

Taste, pretty substantial tartness and wheat perceptible. What makes this even more impressive is the amount of strong barrel aged beers I had drank before this one cut right through them all. More sour and tartness than your average berlinner I would think. California is really cranking up the pungency of this style, all for the better as far as I'm concerned. The mouthfeel throughout is plenty refreshing. Loved it.

On-tap @ the source.

A: Poured into a tulip, hazy straw yellow with an initial half-inch thich white head which fades to the rim leaving rings and spots of lace.

N: Bright and lemony with wheaty grains and tartness.

T: Unexpectedly and pleasantly much more tart. Lemony with an almost pulp-like zest. Wheat.

M: Light body and carbonation. Dry and dusty tart finish.

O: Had been hearing about this and finally visited to specifically try this and was not disappointed. Enjoy on a perfectly warm sunny summer day.
