A nice easy drinking Berliner. I've had a number of American interpretations which missed the mark. Served in a nonic pint, the carbonation really gets to shine and lend the crisp mouthfeel you want from this style of beer. Has the color and clarity of an AAL but with genuinely good malt flavor and tart fruit notes. I got lemon in the mid palate. No bitterness, take note for people who can't seem to handle any hops in their beer. This is a poundable beer for hot days.

@ Bukowski's Cambridge,

Pale straw color with a thick white head compared to the rest of the style. Head fades away by 3/4 glass but it had a few moments of foamy glory. Smells musty. Jackie said "dry basement in a good way." Flavor features a good balance of sweet and mild tartness. I like to be blown away with tartness but I can dig the brewers intention for parody. Not as highly carbonated and spritzy as many berliners which I like.

Pours a light gold color with a white head. Good clarity and has visible carbonation rising to the surface. The aroma is bready and has a wheat beer mustiness.

The taste has a nice lemony tartness with a dry cracker finish and cracked wheat. Has a slight hop bitterness but not overly strong in the flavor. Winesque flavors but of course it's a beer.

A well carbonated beer that finishes rather dry.

Overall, this is a true to style berliner Weisse and drier on the palate than many ive had. Refreshingly tart and crisp, you cannot go wrong with this one. Pretty solid.

Excellent example of style.

Appearance: straw color and clear. Effervescent large head. Little retention.
Flavor: sharp lactic sourness dominates. No detectable hop flavor. Dry finish.
Mouth feel: high carbonation, light body
Overall a very enjoyable beer. Very refreshing.

Very light straw color. Fizzy carbonation with wall-sticking bubbles. Sizzled out speedily.

Malty wheat and lemony tartness with a lacto sting and notes of Germanic mustiness. Very light, only mildly fruity; there might be a good puckery sour to this one.

Zingy tartness with an seltzery dryness. Perky lemon rind and lacto bite. Backed by pale wheat malts and a crispness with brevity. Remains light all the way through. Spanky intro with a clean finish. Musty yeast hangs out in the middle.

Drinks like a dry cider. Thin body and drizzled with light carbonation.
