Traditional sour wheat ale inspires by the German original. Made with wheat and pale malt, this beer is refreshing and quaffable with flavors of sourdough and citrus fruit.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Golden, hazy; similar to a hefeweizen.

Smell: a little bit sour, but also not that much there.

Taste: sour without being overwhelmingly so.

Mouthfeel: crisp, dominated by the tartness.

Overall: very good; I wish more breweries made beers like this. I wonder if they do because Charlottesville has a developed market for cider, so people are more willing to have cider-like beer. (395 characters)

I love a Berliner Weiss and I found this to several elements that made it special but it kept a pervasive corn malt flavor that just about ruined it. Nice balanced tartness and a light sour flavor helps this drink incredibly smooth and refreshing. It's very strong on the wheat malt side but then the corn washes it away. (321 characters)

Poured from the can into a wheat ale glass.

This has got to be the most palest Berliner I have ever seen. Bright faded hay straw body color, with an emphasized clarity and long streams of cola bubbles. Almost Zima looking here, with a one finger bright head, minimal retention and very thin collar that dissolves quickly to next to nothing.

Very tart nose for the aroma. Strong fruit notes of lemon, hiding powdered flour like grain in the back behind it. Hints to a bit of crab apple with some good puckering sensations, seems very large.

Palate comes with a good emphasis on tartness but in a very different angle. Clean finishing, slow bready aromatics on the aftertaste which is a good plus that really builds. Mid palate though is very wet, and has a very cidery feel and character taste to it as well. Mid palate has more apple than fruit like qualities and also some gaseous mild dioxide like character.

Overall a very odd berliner, coming off more like cider than beer, some good malt and bready finish luckily saves it from being a complete bust. (1,066 characters)
