Pours a white fizzy head. Color is a clear gold. Active carbonation.

Flavor profile: tart, sour, and citrusy. Lemon and acidic flavors. Has a fairly large wheat pressence. Fairly fruity and very funky. Vinegar. Has a grape flavor mixed in.

Mouthfeel: crisp and tart. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends clean.

Overall, this was a fantastic beer. Awesome take on the style. Very drinkable.

This Berliner Weisse pours clear, straw colored, with a white head.

Aroma of slightly funky baked bread.

Flavor: this is quite tart and flavorful. Lemony with a touch of apple.

Feel: medium body with just right medium carbonation.

O: Wow, very flavorful, especially at only 3%!

16 ounce pint - $5.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Hazy, golden body underneath a sturdy, white head. Enthusiastic lace coating on the descent.

Smell: A snappy sourness with a strong sense of lemon juice atop the rather subtle wheat characteristics.

Taste: Instant crackling ripple of salty lactic sourness, again, with a wallop of juiced lemons that really gets the saliva glands a-goin'. Slight, mildly creamy wheat presense. Remains as such until the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: A bit more sour, a bit more fuller than most traditional BW's. So, I guess this makes Funk Weisse a BBW.

$4.74 for a 32oz counter pressure filled growler from Barrel and Barley in Woodstock, GA -- quick notes.

A - Cloudy deep straw, pure white fluffy pillow of a head with excellent lacing.

S - Subtle funk with a sourkraut backbone, touch of wheat sweetness in there as well.

T - Pungent sourkraut tartness, backbone like a bowl of Chex cereal. Some green apple present as well.

M - Some gulps were a hare on the sticky side for my liking, but still a very crisp and refreshing finish.

O - An awesome Berliner, much more tart than most young Berliners. I'm very impressed and even more so with the price. Will be a mainstay in the fridge!

12oz Can

A — Pours a lemony and hazy yellowish hue into the glass. There is somewhat of a white head initially, but it of course fades to a thin layer of nothingness.

S — Smell is lightly tart and acidic, with an oddly acrid nuttiness as well, almost notes of Amaretto on top of some limey and tart sour notes.

T — Much like the nose, very mild overall with just hints of lemon and lemon, and an overtone of nuttiness and semi-sweet malts.

M — Thin and light bodied, easy going enough.

O — Fine overall, a nice light sour, funky indeed.

12oz can poured into a pint glass
A: Yellow with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: A nice tartness, lemon, a bit of stone fruit
T: Lemon, lemonade (a bit sweet), sweet bread, apple and grapes/vinegar
M: Light-bodied, crisp, a bit of an acidic bite
O: Tone the sweetness down and this would be awesome. As is it's crisp, refreshing and would be a great session beer on a hot day
