Not as tart/sour as I'd like my Berliners. Carbonation feels extremely flat. Maybe I got a bad batch but coming from a can and with a fairly recent canning date I figure this may just be how the beer really is.

Had in the can poured into a pint. Golden color with a fast disappearing head, per the style. Smelled like some malts with a hint of sourness. The flavor was decent, started a nice malty sweetness which quickly yielded to that berliner weisse sour note that sticks to the back of your throat. Finishes a bit malty and you can feel the body a bit more once it warms up. Super easy to drink and refreshing, but I will take a Festina Peche over this one.

Severely crushable. I waited a while to rate this one - the first year was amazingly sour, the following year there was some funky stuff going on and the last two years White Birch has nailed their process down. This beer is one you could drink all day - it's bright, light and has a great balance of sour and citrus... carbonated to perfection so you're not burping it up all afternoon. Amazing.
