3.38/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Its pale yellow body is made cloudy by the yeast that's been left at the bottom of the bottle and sports a lively amount of carbonation, coming in both small and large bubbles. A finger's worth of clean white head rests on top. Only dots of watery lace are left behind. It's not the most intriguing looking beer but that comes with the style.

The nose is surprisingly sweet. Some sort of artificial syrup comes to mind which easily matches the tart, slightly sour and acidic character of this Berliner Weisse. A slight phenolic character, coming in the form of band-aid adds some much needed complexity to the nose. I like this style as tart as can be and based on the nose, I'm not sure it will deliver.

Although it's not the most tart Berliner I've had, it does pack a nice punch. Acetic acid plants itself on every corner of the palate, drying it out as it moves forward. Lemon peel with a sweet edge is the best way I can descrive the tartness. A pinch of lime juice is thrown in there as well. The finish brings a very pleasant sweet and subtley rich bready character that sits on the front of the tongue as the tartness continues in the background.

One of my favorite qualities of the style is its light, crisp, tingly feel that is accentuated by its citric tartness and this one has all of the above. A touch more carbonation would make the feel near perfect.

A decent interpretation of the style and a good intro into sours. I'd buy this again only if it was the only Berliner Weisse on the shelf. With that being said, I can imagine the Brett L version of this being fantastic.

3.74/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Peachy yellow and cloudy with a apparent mother on the inside of the glass like kombucha. A finger of white head that fades fast.

S: Sour tart quality with some witbier coriander and light lemon as well as a plastic sort of funky quality. Corn and yeast as well.

T: Sour like apple cider vinegar in water, some corn, and a dough yeast quality. Tart and crisp. The coriander witbier quality is only in the background.

M: Light crisp body, with little carbonation.

O: . Not awesome, but nice to find an example in this style that is assumedly close to the original style of the beer. Bought at Bruisin’ Ales Asheville, drank at Deerfield Beach, FL.

3.83/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

(bottle date 2012 Sep 13 - served in a Duvel balloon)

A: head that sizzles out fast... sulfury yellow liquid with only a very faint haze (may be slightly cloudier/head-ier younger?)

S: predominantly acidic, with a slight lemony bent... marginally floral, similar but not quite as distinct as say chamomile

T: refreshingly tart, but not lip-smacking... light, chalky citrus pith... interesting grainy flavor - more like an earthy pale malt than wheat malt - flares up midway through the first few sips

M: dry and snappy crisp, with a pleasantly dainty, delicate malt body... altogether quite dry... the lacto acidity does bring a mild, livening piquancy, however, it falls fairly short of puckering

O: I enjoyed the surprising balance between lacto and malt flavors here - many domestically-produced examples seem to focus on the wild qualities and eschew malt flavors, essentially making the beers flat and dry... I could do this one again - recommended
