Very sour beer one I didn't expect to be so sour but for the style you've got to expect a level of lemon juice tartness. I think what I like best about it was how refreshing it was and the level of guava fruit was quite different compared to most of the style. Worth trying at least once

Lots of flavor with this one

Pours a very effervescent gold with a pinky of eggshell colored head. Zero head retention & lacing

S: Mangos & papaya

T: Follows the nose along with tartness/dryness. Lemony tartness & a little mango as this warms. Finishes dry, tart with orange tartness & little more mNGO

MF: Light body & carbonation

Very drinkable, repsectable take on the style

I bought a six pack of cans, and gave it a try on a hot day. It pours clear, with a very brief head. The taste can only be described as "very sour." I sent an e-mail to the brewery to ask about it. The can claims that there is a hint of sweetness before the sour - I didn't find the sweetness at all. The Brewery got back to me and defended their Berlinerweisse. I've had them before, but the list of fruits on the can gave me the impression that it would have "some fruit -like taste."

On tap at the brewery's release party.
Clear light amber body with high clarity and a decent white head that leaves minimal lacing.
The aroma suggests sour tropical fruit juice.
The flavor is moderately strong and appropriately juicy, with hints of mixed tropical fruits and baked bread.
