2.82/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a pale straw colour, hugely cloudy, almost opaque. Head is white, foamy, medium retention. Not bad.

Smells herbal, grassy. Dry upfront with notes of champagne and a touch of French oak putting me in mind of a chardonnay. Lucerne towards the back, with a bit of spice. Not bad.

Touch of champagne upfront on the palate, develops a slightly tart green apple character midway but finish is all yeasty. Yeah, definitely lacking the acidity and complex finish of a good Berliner weisse, just finishes bready. Quite meh.

Thin body, touch of carbonation. OK for style I guess but there's also a lack of tartness pull which adds to my disappointment over the palate.

Unimpressive drop. Had some promise initially, but didn't deliver as a Berliner Weisse.

For a brewery with only two regular beers, White Rabbit pulled out all the stops during GBW 2013. I tried at least three new beers from them, including this one at GABS.

Pours an extremely pale, yellow-white colour, with solid hazing and a rather light body. Head is white and forms soms solid but inconsistent foaming. Not much lace, and not much carbonation, although the body's so light it's a little difficult to tell. Overall, it looks like a pretty stylistically appropriate Berliner Weisse.

The nose is less so. Slight wheaty characters come forwards, with a hint of musty grain. Almost no acidity or tartness is present, and instead it gives off a dull, generic lager character. Quite unimpressive.

Taste starts light and crisp, with a rounded but muted grain character hinting that there could be good things to come. But instead everything drops out, leaving the centre of the palate empty, with just a slight sludge wheat-porridge character. On the back is a touch of salt and a light, floury finish.

Feel is faint, with a suggestion of chewiness, perhaps just from the porridge character.

Overall, this is a pretty poor Berliner Weisse. There is no acidity or sourness at all, and without it, it's just bland, verging on offensive. I'm am truly not a fan.
