3.53/5 rDev -3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
I had this on-tap at 4 Hands during a recent trip to St. Louis and before a Cardinal game that went 12 innings!
Served in a tulip.
A: Poured a fairly clear golden color, with a slight chill haze, and not much head to speak of. While it was Miler Lite-esque in appearance, I'll give it much more credit than that.
S: Mild, yet inviting, with some wheat, corn, and German malt, along with a fresh filtered water undertow.
T: The sour component was understated, yet still present under close inspection. Germanic in malt bill, mildly acidic, especially in the aftertaste, and became more and more pronounced the more I sipped.
M: Not much carbonation or lacing, but that's not what this beer was supposed to be about anyway. The bitterness was next to nill.
O: This was slightly disappointing, yet it was still good. Also, the prices at 4 Hands are very reasonable.
Serving type: on-tap

3.1/5 rDev -15.5%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
Appearance: Dark yellow, almost orange. It is not really the pale straw color I would expect for a Berliner Weiße. Quickly dissipating head, which settled to no foam, not even lacing. Not visually spritzy at all. Extremely disappointing appearance.
Smell: Lightly citrusy, with a definate undertone of funk... in a good way. I think a bit more carbonation may have helped the smell develop a bit more.
Taste: Light wheat and sour, which yields to a nice citrus flavor. Not overwhelming, quite pleasant.
Mouth-feel: This feels a little heavy for the style. I expected something a bit thinner.
Overall: I really wanted to like this one. Being from St. Louis (home to this brewery) and having lived in Berlin (home to this style), I really felt like this was a perfect beer for me. The beer itself came up a bit short. The taste and smell were decent, but that's the only positive comment I have. I may try this with a bit of Waldmeister syrup, but it is already under carbonated and heavy, so it may be a waste. I do applaud 4 Hands for taking a stab at the style (most breweries are not that bold), but they need to sample a few of the real thing and start over.

3.65/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Pours a slightly hazed amber with a sliver of beige head. Stays effervescent, near zero head retention & lacing
S: Hay, tartness, slight hints of dirt & that's about it
T: Tartness, hay & dryness up front. Faint golden delicious apple notes as this warms, plus tartness, a little bit of pear too. Finishes dry, tart & fruitty
MF: Light bodied with slight carbonation, slightly wet
Super refreshing & fairly spot on for the style, a bit too clean perhaps
