Strangeways at it again, yo! These guys always take a style and do it well! This Berliner Weisse is no exception. Fruity and tart, some lactic tang that blends well with a touch of wheat flavor, and finishes dry. Über rad, brew!

A: A pale yellowish color with a dirty rose tint and slightly of white head.

S: Very tart smelling brew, with perhaps a touch of berry and finish is vinegar.

T: Aggressively sour at first, puckering with a vinegar like acidity. Berry flavor follows the pucker with a bready note as well. The sourness does diminish a but as you keep drinking.

M: Light and crisp with moderate carbonation.

O: Overall a crisp and refreshing.. perhaps one of the better brews I have had from this brewery.

Pour ale amber with thin white head. Aroma of light wheat, tart lemon and slight yeast. Flavor is lightly tart wheat and lemon. Not super complex but an almost perfect interpretation of the style. Feel is light and refreshing. Med- high carbonation. Overall a great Berliner that is also a great base for their flavored versions.

Had on draft. Arrived cloudy golden orangeish yellow with a thin layer of white head that had all but disappeared. Aromas of lemon and malty breadness. Taste is a little sour but balanced by sweetness. I'm not a huge fan of this style but it is one of the best berliner weiss beers I have ever had. Little bitter and sour on the aftertaste. Easy drinking. Excellent effort.
