11.2 oz bottle into tulip.

A: very hazy, very pale yellow hued brew. a super frothy head consisting of dense white foam almost overflows from the glass. retention is good w/ spotty lacing.

S: the sourness reminds me of spoiled orange juice. a little bit of grainy wheat/bread dough. also some mild cherries.

T: body is very tart. puckering at first, but just like most things sour, your tongue gets used to it and it becomes much more manageable. slight notes of pineapple and more of the soured OJ that was in the nose.

M: vivid carbonation is close to effervescent. very light body.

D: i find the sour OJ aroma/tastes rather off-putting. after it subsides, the brew becomes rather refreshing and enjoyable, like many other berliner weisse's. also, i have read these brews typically have no head on them, so i am a little unsure what to think of the frothy head that came with this brew. meh, sort of middle of the road in my opinion.

This my first Berliner Weisse so here goes...

this brew pours up a weird yellow tinted pearl color with a decent head. the nose is tart, sour citrus fruits, very acidic. the taste is bready, tart, super dry but doesn't dry out your mouth, slight yeast. medium body, low carbo, subtle sweet finish.

This brew was very empty in flavor but I heard that Berliner Weisses were supposed to be the most "refreshing" beer on a hot day. I could see it.

On tap at Blue Monk $6 presented in a tulip, a very very light yellow minimal head but lots of bubbles racing up ward
Smelled of light sour malt
Taste was lemon juice cut with light malt, there's a funk note at the end.
Light body high carbonation dries the mouth.
Overall for my first berliner this intrigued my interest in the style, would be wonderful on an extremely hot day all day.
I was told I was hard core for refusing syrup...

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.

Pours a super pale yellow, very hazy, with a fluffy white head that disappears quickly and leaves nary a trace.

Nose is tart and crisp, lemony, clean. Simple.

Taste has a soft tartness, very lemony, clean. Crisp, but not puckering - a bit of tangy wheat comes through towards the finish as well. A sour clearly made for sessioning. Leaves a tingly feeling on the tongue.

Mouthfeel is crisply but softly carbonated, very light bodied.

One of the most foul looking brews I've ever seen. Flat, no head, no bubbles, and the color of urine.

Lemon, Bready, crystal malt. not sweet. tartness

Bitter, dry, tart, lemony, bready, light carbonation, intriguing sweetness, lingering "off flavored" dry after taste, yeasty.

Flavor is much better than appearance, thank goodness.. It's a decent BWeiss, but no where near the best or top. Recommended, but at $5/12oz...think twice.

Pours out of the uniquely shaped 11.2oz bottle a very very light color. Kind of a soft and nearly witbierish white/very pale yellow with a nice slight haze and a fizzy white head that reduces fairly quickly to a ring around the glass with some light skim and leaves minimal lacing.

The nose has quite a grain punch, with some slight dirty wheat/corn like notes. Not alot of lacto in the nose, but i think that will change with first sip. Some apple skin is also apparent. Slight almost white pepper as well.

Hmmm. An interesting take on the style, but to be honest, one i am not terribly fond of. The wheat profile is sort of muddy and unwieldy and gives and almost adjunct like grain flavor to the mix that is just strong enough that you can't quite get past it without mention. That being said, aside from that it fits the style quite well. Very soft on the palate, with a beautifully subtle lactic tartness. Nice and mild, slick in the throat, and aftertaste lingers with green apple notes and tartness.

Mouthfeel is dead on for the style, perfectly soft, beautifully light, and a fantastic subtle tartness.

Drinkability would get top marks here if not for the slight issues i have with the flavor. If there wasn't such an odd almost adjunct like flavor in here, i could literally drink about twenty of these bastards, as they sit at the traditional abv range of 3%

Overall a very well made berliner weisse. If not for mild flaws in the taste, this one would be top notch. Very traditionally made, and accurately so. The subtle tartness and mouthfeel are fantastic. This one really could be a very amazing beer if they can just get that damn wierd corny taste out of the middle. A good beer, but I'll grab 1809 over this one nearly every time.

11.2 oz into tulip.

A- Pale yellow, dandelion, mild head but some lacing droops down into the glass.

S- Tart fruit, lemon, wheat.

T- Great puckering bw. Green apple in the finish, a salty/sour tartness that is fleeting.

M- Nice mouthfeel, good carbonation levels. keeps me coming back for more, great finish.

D- Perfect in this heat. I could throw back a few of these. Good stuff.

11.2oz bottle

Pours a hazy and very pale color,like a witbier. A creamy white head forms and recedes. No real lacing to speak of.

Aroma is light, but distinctly tart and has that barnyard aroma. Mild tones of wheat beer peek through.

Taste is also light, but to be expected for the low gravity. Nice and tart with a light wheat beer base. Refreshing.

Light body, decent carbonation.

Easy to drink and very thrist quenching. This beer is at the light end of the spectrum for the style, but still maintains the most important characteristics. Definitely one to try for Berliner fans.
