Reviewing the Hottenroth from The Bruery out of Placentia, California.

Score: 70

2013 vintage bottle served in an upland snifter and enjoyed on 05/07/13. Review is from iPhone notes

Appearance: Pours a murky dull peach color with a finger of white head. Good lacing and retention. Has a light and delicate appearance. 4/5

Smell: Tons of cereal grain, wheat, a little sweet citrus and apples. 3/5

Taste: Has an offensively flat cereal grain flavor upfront with a very faint tartness on the back end. A little buttery too. Wheaty finish. Has a better citrus tartness if you swish the beer rather than let it sit on the palate, but its very grain heavy when it sits on tongue and the wheat lingers. 2/5

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, low carbonation. Dry finish with a little prickliness. 3.5/5

Overall: I have not had very many berliner weiss, but this is the most "grainy" one that I have sampled to date. Not a fan.

Cost: $7.99 for a 750 ml bottle.
