I had a bottle at Radegast in NYC.

Pours an extremely pale, straw color. The white head fades to nothing. The aroma is light. There are some banana and orange notes, as well as a light acidity.

Tart upfront, but this fades through to the finish. There's a light graininess and only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied, low carbonation and a hint of dryness.

Tasty and very refreshing. I would have liked a little bit more sourness, but that's just me.

Picked up at Friar Tuck's in Savoy, IL.

A fairly vigorous pour produces a fairly white head of about 1.5cm. This fairly sized head falls fairly fast, reducing to a very thin ring around the glass that makes it look like there was never any head to begin with. No lacing on sides of glass. Body is a pale yelow-gold color, hazy, kind of looking like dirty dishwater. Fairly typical-looking.

Scent begins with tangy/tart and light lemon aromas, followed by ghostly wheat/barley malt sweetness, and ends with a bit of warm-yogurt-like bacterial funk. A little light, but ok.

Taste is just lightly tart/sour; it's there, but subdued and polite. Mix that with a bit of wheat malt sweetness, and you just about have this beer. Aftertaste of hazy, plain yogurt tartness mixed with the faintest of nods to wheat malt.

Crisp body is on the heavier side of light, in line with the alcohol level. Carbonation is mild, very suitable for the body. Finish is not dry.

This is a pleasant-tasting and mostly inviting Berlinerweisse. While I like, and mostly prefer, stronger variations on the style, I do like this and wouldn't mind having another.

In a snifter from a twelve ounce bottle.

A- starts with a finger-thick, fluffy, pale white foam and streaks of lace. A pale golden body with energetic carbonation shows, although this beer has a hazy quality. The head persists well and leaves a layer of lace. 4.25

S- sour, wheaty, and malty, maybe some diacetyl, and an aroma of white wine. That's an interesting turn. 3.75

T- I still get the white wine, maybe white grape juice, flavor, with some tart berry flavor and a lemony finish. There's a strong wheat quality that runs along the palate and gives the brew an earthy flavor. 3.75

M- it's plenty tart, wine-like and semi-dry on the finish. It makes the mouth pucker a bit from the acidity. 3.75

O- I enjoyed this but found some of the flavors and sensations to be slightly off. I have found many berliner weisses lately that surpass this, so the competition is getting stiffer.

weird small bottle size. long-necked, unlike the gose. no date. tasted in mid-may 2009. poured into sam adams glass.

pale peach juice color. hazy, almost cloudy (yeast swirled in). 1-finger foamy white head fades to wisps and ring. lacing forms after sips, but never sticks for long.

aroma: fresh bread, yeast, lemon zest, and... fresh raspberries! (i hadn't even broke open the syrup yet!) hint of herbs, possible whiff of noble hop? lemon-like acidic note.

taste: tart, bready, notes of pale malt vinegar, trace funkiness and yeast. hop character is even more faint, with very mild bitterness. citrus notes. all a bit watery tho.

light body, tart and crisp, with mild to moderate, spritzy carbonation.

everything is improved (including lacing) with a dash of sugar and raspberry syrup. the score reflects that slightly.

This beer is a not a great berliner in my opinion. The acidic tartness is present but it is toned down to the point where much of the wheat beer flavor is present and you can almost taste the hops. This makes it taste closer to a lager than a wheat. Overall this is a decent beer, looks really pretty, taste isn't bad by any means but I prefer a stronger sour taste. Still one of my favorite beer styles on a day like today.

375ml into a tulip.

A: Pours a light gold with a small white head. Not much retention.

S: Very lactic in the nose. Lemony, sourdough, mildly sweet wheat.

T: Like the nose, moderate, clean, lemony lactic acid dominates, with a hint of bready wheat in the finish.

M: Light-bodied with very light carbonation.

O: Unlike many other berliner weisses, this beer is all about the bacteria and features very little wheat/malt or yeast character. I'd prefer a bit more wheat character but this is pretty nice.
