Poured a cloudy golden body with two fingers of thick, bubbly white head. It looks quite nice, a good Berliner Weisse in appearance. Scents of a modestly sweet malt, grain husks, light fruit with notes of apple and berries and a sour lactic funk. Overall impression of aroma is of a nice Berliner Weisse that is decently sour and nicely balanced with good grain and fruit aromas. Just a touch light overall, but still nice. Flavor begins with high sourness with notes of lactic acid, plain yogurt-like, grainy malt and light, berry-like fruitiness in the background. Middle is highly sour, with the same flavors prevailing. Finish is highly sour still, with the addition of a lemon-like sourness to the overall flavor profile, which remains much the same as before. Aftertaste is grainy malt and sour lactic acid. Overall impression of flavor is of a crisp, sour, refreshing beer, very true to form for the style. Mouthfeel is light bodied and effervescent with high carbonation and a puckering feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a classic Berliner Weisse, refreshing and light. Overall this is a good Berliner Weisse. It has a good, though light aroma and a true to form flavor and mouthfeel that make it a nicely refreshing beer.

Poured a golden straw color with 4-to-5 fingers of rocky white head. Small, selected streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 3.50)

Smelled sour fruit, green apple, kiwi, green grapes, Sweet Tarts, sugary wheat and candied sugar. Very enticing. (Smell - 4.00)

Taste didn’t match the nose, but still decent. Got green apple, green grapes, kiwi, sour grass, wheat, sour fruit and candied tarts. (Taste - 3.75)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, sour finish. (Feel - 3.50)

An OK Berliner Weissbier, but not my favorite (without looking how many I’ve had). (Overall - 3.75)
