Alaska

4.4/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Huge thanks go out to natasharai for lugging this and many other fine brews all the way to Alaska.

Pours like a good berliner should, nearly totally clear with a soft white hue and light yellow highlights. A nice fizzy white head actually retains pretty well for the style and leaves ok lacing.

Nose has the requisite lactic tartness, light peach, green apple, and a small wheat yeast note.

Wow. Pretty darn close to dead on for the style. A nice wheat beer base is evident. The lactic tartness is a tiny bit strong for the style, but you won't hear any complaints from me in that regard. Some slight grape in there as well, white grape. Nice crisp finish without being too dry, and the nice tartness lingers a bit in the finish.

Mouthfeel is damn fine, ever so slightly too viscous for the style, IMO, but not bad at all. Carbonation is ideal.

Drinkability is where this one shines, as any good berliner weiss should. Would love to have a regular supply of these to session on a summer day.

Overall, a very good representation of the style, and one i would love to have again. Easily one of the best american made (or anywhere made for that batter) berliners out there. Excellent.
