On tap. Look is pale yellow and clear. Smell light salt and lemon. Taste is mildly citric sour, lemon again. Decent effort at the style, certainly a restrained effort.

I am not very familiar with a Bernliner Weiss but the style notes are as follows "The taste is refreshing, tart, sour and acidic, with a lemony-citric fruit sharpness and almost no hop bitterness." And that is exactly what this tastes like. Zero head, tons of carb (akin to soda pop) no malt, bit time lemon/citrus bomb - I am not even sure there is any alcohol in this cuz the lemon blast flavor pretty much cancels everything out. I don't normally say I "hate" a particular beer but this one is an exception. I have to say though, if you are a fan of this style then I am guessing you'd love this beer but I on the other hand do not. Soooo take this with a grain of salt (and a slice of lemon)
