Cheers and thanks are owed to BA canadianghetto for looking out for me and hooking me up with a 32oz growler of this berliner that ive never had. Poured into a tulip, the brew appears a clear yellow with a white topping that is quick to fade. Some rising bubbles maintain a fine ring around the perimeter of the glass.

The aroma is lactic with lemon and yogurt notes. A little sulfur when swirled and I am stretching to say it has some fruity notes faintly like dry white grapes and apple skin. The backend has a wheat inclusion that is mildly bready or cracker-like.

The flavor is tart like lemon juice/zest with a dryness like you are eating greek yogurt. Some faint fruity qualities are present mid-palate before tapering off to a dry cracker-like grain inclusion mixed with a fresh wheat taste.

This is a light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is crisp, snappy, refreshing and downright poundable. I could drink this by the gallon if given the opportunity. Fans of berliners need to seek this out, it is a solid representation of the style. Will, thank you kindly for this...I owe you.

Thanks to someone for sharing this growler at thirdeye11's tasting. This is Texas rating No. 500.

The beer pours a hazy straw color with a white head. The aroma has some slightly sour wheat notes, as well as some lemon character. The flavor is very similar. There is some lactic sourness, as well as some wheat and lemon notes. While the sourness is present the beer, it is fairly subtle and overall the beer is very easy to drink. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one as it is always nice to have a new Berliner Weisse, especially one brewed in Texas.

I have had this enough over the last few days to put a review down. Had it at the brewery, and several times at Cottonwood in Houston.

A: Pours a clear straw, yellow color. A two finger white head forms and gently recedes after a minute. Light lace is left behind.
S: Up front is some lactic, slightly acidic and tar lemon aromas. Some light fruity aromas of white grades and apple skins. A slight sulfuric and mineral character in the nose. A lingering tartness with husky wheat a cereal grains/crackers.
T: Much like the nose, a mix of lactic and slightly acidic fruit notes with a sulfur and minerallly flavor. Lemon, grapes, apple skins. Acidic in the finish with some wheat flavors and cereal grains. Very nice.
M/D: A light body that is perfectly effervescent. Crisp, so dry and refreshing. Um, yeah, I can drink this all day. Incredibly refreshing, easy, and enjoyable to drink. I keep wanting to come back for more.

An excellent example of a style that is just starting to gain popularity in the States. Maybe New Glarus makes the only superior version? Well, at least from what I have had. Well done, and highly recommended.
