From a 16 ounce bottle.

A. Light straw color with some turbidity. Nice puffy white head that laces quite well.
S. Bready nose with just a hint of lemon - very little else going on.
T. Lemon juice and malt built on a very light frame. Refreshing but devoid of flavor.
M. Light bodied with minimal carbonation.
O. When the appearance of a beer is its highlight you know something is not right. In a blind tasting I would never guess Berliner Weisse. Would be okay after mowing the lawn to rehydrate but that's about it.

Hinterland deeply disappointed me with a maple beer of theirs about a year ago, but given the difficulty in finding one of my favorite styles, Berliner Weiss, I thought that I'd give this a shot.

Appears a pale straw color, like others that I've had.

Smells of lemons, impending acidity, dirty socks.

Tastes a little funky, don't get any malt or hops, which is par for the style. A little wheat, but that's it.

Light to medium in the mouth, medium carbonation.

Overall I'm underwhelmed. Bayerischer Banof is, so far, the best I've tried in this style. I used to think that Bells' Oarsman Ale was pedestrian, but it easily exceeds this example in taste. If I brew my own, and it turns out like this, I'll be extremely disappointed.

500ml bottle.

A: Pours a cloudy darkish yellow with a spongy white head and great lacing.

S: The aroma is completely surprising: sweet papaya-like hop notes dominate. A bit of lactic character and wheat comes through as well.

T: Taste brings grassy, slightly citrusy hoppiness, mild lactic tartness, a bit of hop bitterness, and a pleasant wash of grain in the finish.

M: Light-bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: This berliner is hopped way too much to stay true to style. I can't imagine Hinterland would do this unintentionally, but I just don't know. I like the beer, but I have to dock points given that this is simply advertised as a berliner and not a "hoppy berliner" or something like that.
