Pours very pale clear yellow with a big foamy head that reduces to a ring. No lace.

Some tart lemon, yeast, wheat, and some odd fruit in the nose.

Lemons, seltzer water, and grapes, some watery/funky pineapple juice. Nice fruit and lean slightly salty balance. Tart lemon with sweet wheat at the very end as the palate clears. Very easy drinking.

Light and fizzy and palate clearing.

A decent brew, with parts I really like and a few things missing. Still, I would have this again.

Bottle: Poured alight hazy color weisse with a large slightly off-white foamy head with great retention and some great lacing. Aroma consists of slightly tart nose with some salty notes and light herbal finish. Taste is a weird mix between some light tart notes with some distinct salty notes. Body is about average with a smooth texture and great carbonation. Must be me but I felt too much salt in this beer and not enough tart notes.

A: Pours a hazy pale grapefruit juice yellow with a one and a half inch white head which fades slowly to the rim leaving some spots of lace.

N: Tart lemony wheat with fruity green apples/pears along with some sweetness and grape must.

T: Grainy wheat, tart and lemony. Fruity and floral with some damp hay.

M: Light body and moderate fizzy carbonation. Finish is tart with lemon zest and slightly moldy wheat.

O: Enjoyable on a warm late afternoon. Easy to drink.

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Lightly funky on the nose. Popcorn, grass, lactobacillus, and some lemon. A bit of lemon peel, wheat bread, and hints of sweet malt. The flavor is quite crisp, dry, and tart. Lots of lactic acidity, lemon, and lemon peel. Some straw, a touch of unripe strawberry, grass, and a light malt sweetness with a definite wheat and popcorn character.

Yellow pour, ample haze, clean white head about 3/4" deep, looks good. Minor tart and sour wheat notes in the aroma, not huge, but present.

Taste, light body as it should be, good tartness, tongue smacking. Lemon is really dominating in terms of leading the flavor profile. Barely anything else discernable about it, malt, hops not really anything there to describe, other than the lack of it not being there, which is fine, its still a good tasting berlinner, but at its price ($6 a bottle), it is more expensive than some of the better berlinners you can get your hands on.

Its pretty dry, very clean, it is enjoyable as long as you don't think about how much you paid for it. A great option on a hot day and limitless wallet.

11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass

A: Very light, hazy golden color with a finger of dense white tan foam. Active carbonation throughout the beer.

S: Very light - some wheat with some lemon zest.

T: Much stronger flavor than the smell would let on. Very tart and dry - lots of lemon sourness. The wheat base comes out after that with a bit of sweetness and a touch of spiciness in the aftertaste.

M: Quite light with strong carbonation.

O: The taste is significantly better than the very faint nose, but this beer could use a bit more acidity. It's quite dry and tart, but there is no real acidic punch. The spicy aftertaste is a bit off-putting, too.

Another beer I only got to taste thanks to Bobby; last night at The Attic.

A very pale yellow with moderate hazing, it's what I expect for the style. The head seems stingy at first but develops a bit, almost to one finger. A bit of spotty lacing with some legs leave some off-white evidence behind.
This beer smells like a lemon. I get a bit of malts behind it with some light wheat-like notes.
The same goes for the flavor. It's pretty good, and it's the sourness I expect, but its flaw is being one-dimensional, as the lemon dominates and the sourness is almost the only aspect here.
Crisp and light with a bit of a creamy flow, the feel is good, and refreshing at that.

12 oz bottle courtesy of sliverX, thanks Tim! Purs a crystal clear, light yellow color with a decent cap of white head. This bottle is about a year old at least, so there is still plenty of carbo here.

Nose is lemon-y sourness with a little bit of earthy mushrooms. Tart but not overly so.

I think I waited a bit long on this one as the malts are kind of stale...good thing there isnt much of them, haha! There is a nice sourness to it that is light and refreshing. This would be an absolutely perfect beer to have after mowing the yard. After having more than a handful of berliners, I think I prefer the ones that have a little more malt and alcohol to them like the 1809 and the DFH Festina. Very good though and would love to try a fresher sample.

Very pale straw color with obvious carbonation. Spritzy white head.

Nose has some citrus notes with light bread.

Light sourness and acidity but very palatable. This is perfect for a hot humid summer day. The 3% alcohol only makes this easier to drink. Some straw and light bread in the malt character but the fermentation and yeast drive this.

No freshness dating

A= Pours a very very light yellow color almost a white with a nice tall three finger white head that holds great retention and great lacing.

S= Smells spritzy and lemony with a touch of wheat. Smells like a good berliner to me. There is a slight plasticy character to it that I'm finding off putting.

T= No plastic in the taste just a good solid what character with a nice lactic sourness and lemony spritz. A really refreshing brew for a hot spring day.

M= Nice and spritzy.

O= This is a great brew that fits into a style more people need to make. The berliner is sooo good for summer and worth every penny. Buy this beer if you see it and if you like berliners because it's worth it.

Grabbed on a whim, not expecting a lot.

Pops open with vigourous carbonation, pours a thick yellow haze topped by a cumulonimbus style white head. Very pretty, the head drops and leaves strong lacing with a filmy white line of bubbles on top.

Smells off the charts, lemons, grainy cereal, toasted cherios, citrus, and a light floral aroma. Taste is a mirror copy, a delightful level of tartness on a malty wheat body. I'm enamored, ready to go back to the store and buy more.

I would not complain about this beer in any way, a perfect glass to pour while rooting in the garden or laying in the sun and watching the girls go by.

Delightful.

Bottle (2012?)

The Bruery Provisions
Orange, CA

Clear yellow with a small (for the style) bone-white head. This doesn't leave much stick down the glass. Average.

The nose is dominated by wheat, a bit of lemon, and some mild acidic sourness.

The flavor too has more pronounced wheat character than I've experienced in any other beer. There's a mild lemon, mild grape, and mild acidic sourness as well. Drinkable.

Light to medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Appropriate.

Decent enough, and incredibly drinkable, though the wheat flavors dominate and I was wishing for more lemon/apple/sour flavors. Simple.
