Pale, German-style, light-bodied wheat beer with refreshing tart, acidic and lemony characteristics and little hop bitterness. Woodruff or raspberry syrup can be added to balance the sourness.

On tap at Iron Hill's tent all weekend at BCTC09. Didn't go so well with Captain Lawrence's pulled pork(Should of went with the whit maybe? I dunno.), but it went down fine solo after the lights went off.

Hazy yellow & gray, dulled out body. Soft, white film seltzer head.

Smells of itchy & bitter fruit peels, along with some mild sourness.

Already establishing ahead of time what my favorite kind of Berliner Weiss involves, this one wasn't that bad. Dry & more tart then usual. Significantly dusty/chalky wheat, sour limes. Finish leaves your mouth salivating for something bigger. If I wasn't surrounded by so many other quality beers, I might have just killed someone looking for a bottle of woodruff syrup after my second helping.

Excellent beer to start up your palate in the morning. Drinking one soon after brushing your teeth could be dangerous though. :)

I know that you’re supposed to drink this style with a squire of raspberry or woodruff, but for a review, that made about as much sense as reviewing Corona with a lime in it. So, I went for the Berlinerweiss by itself.

This beer came a simple dark foggy straw color with just a few bubbles around the rim of my glass.

Smells of dry green grapes and a touch of citrus. This was really faint.

Tastes of sour and tart limes with a slight touch of wheat and rye. Mostly, this was just sour.

The mouthfeel was light to medium bodied with a prominent, tingly carbonation.

There really wasn’t much there. Makes me want to go back and try it with the rasp. or woodruff to see what I missed out on.

This beer may have been better enjoyed during the daytime, not 11:00 at night. I wasn't ready for the tartness. Too bitter. Everything else was good about it: appearance, smell, mouthfeel. It smelled sweet enough and looked pale yellow. I thought it was going to taste more like a light, sweet hefeweizen.
I can't say I recommend it, but if you want to try it just be prepared for a strong sour experience.
