2.23/5  rDev -44.3%
look: 2.75 | smell: 1 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

Appearance:
Very murky and looks very similar to lemonade with a thin white head that quickly turns into a thins layer of lacing.
Smell:
Vomit to be honest, but very mild with just a hint of citrus
Taste:
Very citrusy, lots of lemon and a tart flavor overall.
Mouthfeel:
Light bodied.
Overall:
Except for the aroma, this is actually a pretty light and refreshing beer, very comforting on a nice hot day. Just to make sure I used three different glasses and washed the third using another sink just to make sure the smell wasn’t coming the glasses.

pale almost clear. seriously smells like vomit. what were they thinking. taste is fine, but doesn't match up to Red Bud. not much length, touch of tartness on the front. feel is clean, crisp. I have 5 more from a 6 pack... anyone want to trade their Red Bud? Ha.

Horrible smell with a light refreshing taste. Its hard to get past the smell on this one. I'll drink it from the can next time.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: The beer pours a clear yellow color that almost looks like a beer that's been watered down. Not much head to speak of.

Smell: Very yeasty and not particularly sour. Lots of yeast. There was a note that reminds me a bit of a pils. Not a huge fan of the smell.

Taste: Very yeasty with more sourness than I would have guessed from the smell. I'm getting some lemon juice and a tingle in the jowls. Still an off note that I don't love, but everything else manages to keep things towards the right track.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the light side with almost no carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I liked the taste a lot more than the smell. I don't think I'd need more in the future.

Tejas Berliner.

Pours a straw colored body with a delightful transparent haze, clocking at 70% opaque. Rapidly diminishing head leaving a ring of creamy carbonation on top.

Virtually no smell whatsoever. Imagination brings dry oats or cheerios to the table. That's it.

Thankfully the taste delivers a little more, with tangy yeast and notes of cantaloupe rind. Vinegar and a touch of green apple skin. Breath brings up warm breadiness. Touch of lime and seltzer on the finish.

Feel is very carbonated, slight semi-dry parch.

Overall this was a fair Berliner, nothing to wag at, but still a good drinker. I won't have it again unless I'm down in Texas, but if I were, I'm not sure if I'd pick it up again.

Served in a Sweetwater mini-snifter.

Thanks to wagenvolks for this bottle!

I get the tilde'ed "n", but how the hell am I supposed to pronounce an umlaut'ed one!? Anyway, this stuff pours a hazy pale straw topped by nearly no appreciable head. The nose comprises mild lemon peel, grass, flowers, and white cedar. The taste holds notes of tart lemon zest, light cedar, light bread, and a hint of vague creaminess. The body is a hefty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, not the sharpest Berliner I've ever had, but one that uses its near-subtlety and the mild barreling to its general advantage.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow with no head. No life.

Smell - Very lemony. Some vanilla? Something there I'm not able to pinpoint.

Taste - Lemony. Again with some flavor I can't discern. Pretty straightforward otherwise. Grainy in the back.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Easy to drink. Not all that sour.

Overall - Decent base berliner.

Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, wheat, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, grain, and lemon flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fairly intense sourness in the taste.
