Bottle 200/450

WOW, huge gusher!!!!

Pours a lively, hazy gold. Huge, fluffy white head disapates leaving a ring around the beer and not much else.

Smell isn't very aggressive. Slight funk with some tropical fruit notes.

Taste is not nearly as tart or sour as I would expect from an 'Imperial' Berliner...It is tart, just not as much as I expected. Slight wheat flavor hits immediately and gets a little sharper as it goes down

Feels dry and makes me salivate, I think it does it's job here. Crisp and light, even for a 6% Berliner.

Overall, this is very enjoyable. It is certainly something to try, especially if you are a fan of the style! Just have your glass at the ready!!!

2011 vintage, #286/450, split

An explosive gusher - quick reflexes and a helping hand prevented significant loss. Bright peach-orange body, some nice white foam from the explosion. Honestly, nowhere near as tart as any other berliner's I've had, though as it's a pretty obscure style that's really not a large sample. Lemony acidity, white grape, spice, grain, cut grass. Nice beer for a hot afternoon

Bottle 192 of 450: opened with a massive rush of foam spewing out of the bottle. The beer was very active almost resembling what looked like champagne. The beer poured out as a nice clear golden color with a fizzy white head on top. The smell of the beer had the subtle sourness on the nose with some lemon-like citrus as well. The taste of the beer is slightly tart along with the hints of wheat in the finish. The mouthfeel has plenty of carbonation, it's light bodied and dry in the finish. Overall it's a good brew, pleased that I was able to try this one since it's retired.
