Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.

Pours a pale hazy light yellow, very little carbonation, no lacing, no head to speak of. Nice aroma off the pour though. No hops, as expected, some bread notes from the malt, mostly fruity brett and lacto aromas. Flavor follows the nose, some malt but mostly brett and lacto, nice acidic bite backed up with brett flavors. Thin mouthfeel, light carbonation work well with the acidic character of this beer. Overall I was suprised by this beer, I went in with reservations of a weak abv meaning weak flavor as well. This brew has changed my mind, and at 3.5% I can drink it all day long. Very good offering, but the price point will probably prevent me from buying much more.

Big thanks to smoked for hooking me up with this. 750ml poured into a tulip. The brew appears a clear pale yellow with a quick fading white cap. Spotty lace sticks to the glass.

The aroma is vinous and very earthy/bretty with barnyard leathery notes. It has some expected lemony lactic bordering on yogurt character. However, the biggest component to the nose is definitely brett which is unexpected but enjoyable.

lemony lactic tartness leads the flavor profile blending to yogurt and some fruitiness that gets almost vinous eith plenty of dry leathery brett character. Grapeskins, apples and pear subtlety runs throughout each sip.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crushable and worth checking out. The label reads like this was barrel aged with fruit added. Im pleased to say the barrel was almost unnoticed and the fruit inclusion interplayee nicely without distracting. Im glad I got another bottle of this, ill probably be selfish and drink all 750ml myself, its that good.

Bottle 1232/1B

Beer pours a clear golden color. Carbonation is very low, at first I thought it was going to be still. No head whatsoever. Not as effervescent as it should be.

Aroma is lactic sourness and barnyard brett aroma. Barnyard pretty prominent but I kind of like that aroma. It seems to go well with the subtle fruitiness.

Flavor is sour, a little bit of fruitiness. Finish is not as dry as it should be and the poor carbonation does not help.

Mouthfeel is very thin.

This is an okay beer, as a Berliner Weisse it would score very poorly, the carbonation is just pathetic and brett is was too dominant. As a spin on the style or as a low alcohol sour it is ok.

Thanks to ablackshear for this beer!

750ml bottle sealed with yellow pressure cap and white wax. Pretty cool label art as well.

Bottle # 1154. Barrel # TBB 1-6. Bottled on 2/2013

poured into Crooked Stave Tulip glass.

Appearance: glowing pale yellow bodied beer with a slighy haziness about the beer. Thin uneven cap of white head that drops down to nothing rather quickly.

Smell: lemons and acidic notes. Stale wheat. Really weak cheesy/yogurt funk.

Taste: lemon juice and granny smith apple peels with a mild amount of sourness. Tropical fruits and slightly sweet wheat malts. I distinctly taste ginger and lemon grass finish. Mild lingering tartness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with very low carbonation levels. Its starting to get slightly syrupy and the carbonation seems like it is almost gone from this beer. I could use more carbonation in this beer.

Overall: This is an interesting beer. The beer could have used more carbonation and a little less sour, but it was still an enjoyable beer. It brings to mind an idea that this is what an undercarbonated bottle Nightshift Somer Weisse might taste like...

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 2/2013. Bottle # 1120. Barrel # TTB1-6.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, lemon, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour lemon, fruit, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty, refreshing, and easy to drink.

strange brew, one of the most sour and least carbonated Berliner Weiss beers ive ever had, definitely off the style guidelines a bit, but a very palatable drink. hazy blonde in color, very little head, to its detriment for sure. a sour nose of lactic acid and tropical fruit, new and exciting to me for the style. bacterial and acidic, its sharp to the nostrils, but pleasantly mild as far as grain goes. super sour up front in taste, more than any other I can recall. its sharp and drying, but not without a mango type sweetness before it finishes. pucker and tart, lemons and grapefruits, acid heavy. its almost too much, especially when it warms, but its complexity keeps me coming back for more sips. the feel is problem for me. as light in body as this is, it isn't carbonated hardly at all. I need a Berliner to pop, and this one doesn't. what I do like is the protein weight without the body, heft without density. this wasn't ever boiled, or so the label says, and in certainly imparts unique characteristics to this beer. another intriguing beer from trinity, overpriced but fun, a common theme these days for them.

edit: this one ages really well. the fruit aspect is a lot more developed and the beer doesnt get a whole lot more sour over time. i think its come together quite a bit better with time, and its even found a little carbonation. i am improving some scores based on this maturation.

Served in a wedding snifter.

Only ten minutes? Aw, man... Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy straw topped by a half-finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises a simple blast of sweet-tart lemon and lime zests. The taste brings in more of the same, though the sweetness is downplayed and everything tends toward the lemon end of the spectrum. The body straddles the border between hefty light and light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, sticky finish. Overall, a very nice, straightforward Berliner. 'Nuff said.

Light milky yellow in color. Forms a small white head, but it quickly disipate a to nothing very quickly. No lacing. Almost looks flats. Aroma is tart. Very tell-tale Berliner. Some light tartness. Definitely some lacto. Taste is lightly tart. Green apple, lacto, some light wheat notes. Lighter bodied. Good carbonation. Light tartness. Not much oak, but it doesn't need it. A better beer than expected.
