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.

Thanks Mac!

Minimal pop from the cork though there was plenty of activity during the pour. Effervescent golden body, fizzy white head. Nose is strong and potent, full of citrus and lactic acid. Really like the aroma.

Flavors from the nose bleed into the taste, bringing with them a tart puckering sensation. Easy to drink, plenty of flavor, and surprising amounts of depth that simply were not there ~9 months ago. Splendid.

Uberliner has come a long way since its release. Was entirely forgettable on tap at the release (and soon thereafter from bottles); glad to see it's aged nicely. Makes me wish I hadn't traded all of my bottles away so quickly.

Poured into a perfect pint. 2011 vintage. Bottle #46 of 450.

3.0 A: Nearly clear medium yellow color. Two and a half fingers of fizzy white head. Retention is below average and just a few whisps of lacing is left. I gave the bottle a good stir to get some yeast in it, which hazed it up and benefitted the nose and taste.

4.0 S: Mildly tart with green apple and white grape fruitiness. Quite cidery. Lemon-lime Sprite quality to it. Grassy and lightly grainy. Mild peppery spiciness. A lot of pungent, rotting wood funk came after the addition of yeast to the glass. Not bad.

4.5 T: Again just a mild tartness. Green apple is the strongest flavor and brings the cider component into the taste. Light white grape and lime with a bit more lemon. Grassy and grainy. Light peppery spice again. Wheat, peach, a touch of malty sweetness. A lot more complex than the nose with greater depth of flavor. Adding the yeastiness to the glass amplified the flavors and also made it taste a hell of a lot more like champagne.

4.5 M: Lighter body. Crisp, spritzy carbonation. Superbly drinkable and smooth.

4.5 D: I originally scored this a lot lower than what you are seeing. However, this actually got better as I drank it and getting some yeast in it really helped. Super easy to drink with lots of complexity and depth. Really tasty.

Bottle 258 of 450

HUGE, white, five-finger, soapy, head. Brew clear is yellow with lots of light oranges. lacing is few and far between.

Lots of lemon and orange. Slight tartness. Bready and buggy.

Nicely vinegary and tart lemon. Lots of white grapey flavors, much like a chardonnay. Very refreshing and light. Dry, airy, and has no bite upon the finish. Perfect feel. Carbonation is moderate which is a nice light surprise for the typically over-carbonated style..

A perfect example of the style, although an imperial. Very glad I tried this brew, Thanks Matt! Highly recommended.
