330 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy very pale straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tart apple, pear, grape, raspberry, lemon, hay, grass, honey, wheat, funk, white vinegar, and earthy spiciness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky notes with some light malt presence. Taste of tart apple, pear, grape, lemon, honey, wheat, grass, hay, light vinegar, funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, honey, hay, grass, light vinegar, light funk, and earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and complexity of fruity/funky ester flavors with slight malt balance; feels fairly watery, but not too bad; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish as expected. Overall this is a very nice Berliner weisse style. Nice overall balance and complexity of yeast ester flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. The aromas were the winner vs the taste; but this was still very enjoyable.

poured into Duvel tulip.

Appearance: light straw yellow bodied beer with 2 fingers of white head. It got some staying power too.

Smell: sour mash. tart. wheat. white grape juice. honey.

Taste: mild lemon tartness. Some white grape juice that adds a touch of sweetness. Malt profile is like fresh baked buttermilk bicuits. Hint of honey sweetness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. crisp and it drinks just like its water. semidry finish.

Overall: Nice berliner weissbeir. nothing crazy, but outstanding drinkability. great summer beer.

11.2 oz bottle that cost $4.69, yowza! Very light yellow color, ok head. Aroma is tart, peach almost, nice. Flavor is tart, peaches, honey, malt, quite good. Way, way too easy to drink, I killed my glass in under ten minutes. Its really too bad the style is hard to find and expensive, this would get swilled during the summertimes.

an interesting Berliner, lower abv than ive seen in one of these. the pour looks like lemonade, really pale yellow, almost white really, with a lot of haze and not much head. the nose is very lemony, but also a little more wheat malt to this than I expected based on the color, also a touch of honey sweetness apparently to counteract the intense acidic and citrus bitterness. the flavor doesn't really hold onto much of that malt character or the sweetness, maybe just a touch of floral perfume essence amidst the piquant sour flavor. lemon zest and acid in the finish, typical of the style. its a very good version, but it comes through a little thin, even for this genre, also soda like carbonation may be a little over the top, still, the beer is yummy and refreshing, I will enjoy this even more come summer weather, which has to be about due right? I think the gose from these guys was a bit more refined, but both are solid choices if you can find them.

A bottle, probably smaller than the US 12 oz; I didn't check for that or freshness info. Handed to me with a standard nonic pint glass.

Poured a very lite yellow, with some white stick. Smell was very tart and citrusy, giving a very "unassuming" presence. First sip was fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Not unexpected at all, and a few sips in, I could detect it lying on a gentle, wheaty base. This proved enough contrast to make it a nice-tasting drinker.

Overall, super-easy to drink, and given the abv, you could make a night of these. If I ever see these for sale around me (I haven't yet..), I would buy a case.

12oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a hazy pale golden yellow color. Produced a surprisingly large white head that dissipated quickly. Some lacing left behind.

(S)- A nice soft aroma of honey wheat. Bits of lightly spicy biscuit with an underlying tartness.

(T)- This has a really nice sourness throughout. Hints of wheat, lemon rind, biscuit, and honey.

(M)- A nicely crisp carbonation level. A nice light balance to it as well with subtle tart fruit and the wheat beer base.

(O)- Its definitely a nice Berliner. Fairly easy to find in the area and not overly expensive. Not earth changing for the style, but really no complaints.

330mL bottle poured into a tasting glass, split with 2 buddies

A pale, fairly clear, golden yellow color with a small white cap that fell to some medium sized bubbles atop the liquid.

Fairly unique nose. Hints of sulfur, band aids, lactic acid, sourdough bread, and tart lemons, predominantly. There was an odd underlying aroma that gave off hints of raisins and figs.

Lactic notes jump a bit more on the palate than the nose. Tart lemons, band aid funk, and sourdough through the middle. Clean wheat with lactic tartness in the finish.

Light body, strong carbonation. A little rough around the edges.

Not the cleanest Berliner. Fairly sharp and acidic at every turn, but it definitely packs a little punch.

For a warmish January night this beer hit the spot.
A pale, clear golden color...very light. Small head that settled to a thin layer.

Aroma is sharp and tangy. Lemon and some pineapple. Pear skin and white grape.

Just shy of a sour beer, which is what it's suppose to be. The pear is more of a pear skin. Lemon zest and orange rind come and go. Pronounced pineapple with some grapefruit. Tart for sure.

This beer is easy to drink, and at 3abv that's a welcomed sign. Should have this one again on a hot summer day. Very nice, maybe I'll try it with some sort of syrup next time

Poured from 330mL bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: light silvery-golden hue with a touch of haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of creamy white foam. Looks like a refreshing brew, as it should!

Smell: sweet, wheaty malt with a hint of sour grain. Not bad, and stylistically appropriate, but I feel like it lacks finesse.

Taste: quite sour right up front with a very light wheaty flavor underneath. Finishes up pretty sour. Light, as the low ABV would suggest, but it kind of lacks balance to the pretty-massive sourness.

Mouthfeel: light body with a good carbonation and a surprisingly robust creaminess. I like a good creaminess in such a light-bodied beer.

Overall: lacks balance, but a very tart and refreshing beer in general. I like sour beers, and this is a good take on the style.
