look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

750 ml bottle, bottle on 6/10/13. Pours hazy light yellow with a huge gushing fizzy white head that retains well and laces the glass a little.

The aroma is musty wheat malts with a little apple.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malts, green apple and a dry champagne finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with spritzy carbonation.

Overall, Just OK. Tart green apple and dry champagne.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Color is a pale yellowish with a big gush of head in the Faust Weissbier glass. The usual light body and sharp mouthfeel. Somewhat spritzy but not up to the German standard. Aroma is a slight whiff of vinegar with some faint grain.

Flavor is more on the tart than sour side, which is fine for drinkability in my opinion. Some hints of malt. Mostly it's a tangy, faintly fruity but extremely dry taste. Thin and slightly wheaty. Hints of grape skins and some lemon.

This is easy to drink, if you're trying out the style, but the nine dollar price seems excessive. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquors in Denver.

not quite as sour as the more authentic Berliner Weiss brews out there, but a very enjoyable one. light and effervescent in feel, it drinks like champagne. it also has a distinct white wine character to the nose and taste, which makes it even more like a glass of bubbly. the label just says oak barrels, but it would surprise me greatly if chardonnay was not the barrel used here. went well with Alaskan crab cakes, a pleasant uplifting beer to compliment the seafood. just a little hazy looking, apple juice color and a massive white head on the initial our but it settles quickly. clean tannic finish that is character Berliner style, but it lacks the lactic dryness of the best ones. overall another outstanding beer from elevation, I am surprised these guys haven't blown up yet. I always allow myself to pay what they ask for their beers because they are all unique and delicious.

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

750ml bottle #920, 07/19/13.

Appearance: Froths nicely to maybe 1cm, then falls back gradually. No real discernible lacing. Color is wonderful - the palest white straw, very slightly hazy.

Smell: Wheaty and a little cracker-y, but dominant is the strong, fresh lactic tang. Extremely clean aroma, maybe like fresh milk, or a field of wheat. Some apple; faintest hints of vanilla.

Taste: Super-smooth and light, but with a perfectly balanced lactic twang. Like fresh yoghurt. Slightly lemony, slightly apple-y, slightest hint of woody vanillin, but mainly in the feel not the taste. Big big taste for a 4% beer.

Mouthfeel: Just great, spot on for the style. Light, easy-drinking, with a prickly but tiny bubbled carbonation. Offsets the sour just the right amount. Absurdly easy to drink.

Overall: Very very nice Berliner Weisse. Extremely discreet barrel ageing; great beer.

Pours a light, whitish yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is woody, lemon, grapes, some wheat malt, a little bready too. Flavor was light and crisp with a nice dry finish; a little woody, lemon and its zest, grapes, creamy, a touch of bread. A light, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, Elevation with a really nice beer here. Super drinkable and some really nice flavor for such a low abv.
