2017 bottle.
This was poured into a stange.
The appearance was a mild bright orange color with a light fizzy white head that dissolved immediately to provide no lacing.
The aroma had the sweet to tart passion fruit up front a mild red cherry to oaky funk sour-ness flowing into some acidic fruit seed.
The flavor started off tart with a sturdy acidic fruitiness playing with some passion fruit seed and find it's way into a sticky funk. Good level of sour here. Mild aftertaste of passionfruit sweet tartness with it's seeds.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Nice sour pucker on my tongue with a mild stickiness. Damn nice passionfruity tart grab on the finish.
Overall, seemed more of a tart/sour-ed fruit beer, but very well done. Where's the sour-ed wheat? Still, it's one I'd come back to for me.

A - Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a two finger fizzy white head. The head fades quickly leaving no lacing.

S - Aroma is pale wheat, straw and passion fruit.

T - The taste is tart passion fruit, green apple skin, lemon, lime, white vinegar, wheat and light yeast.

M - Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a crisp dry finish.

O - This is a solid fruited Berliner. The flavors are clean and refreshing. Very nice for a warm afternoon.

i really like a berliner style aged in oak, i think its an extremely flattering quality most of the time. it gives the souring bacterial acidity a little more complexity, it teases wild yeast characteristics, and i think when they are fruited like this one is, it gives a nice mellow earthy balance to the sweet fruit. this is golden and rich looking from the bottle, less intensely fruity looking than some of the other variants i have had, but thats passion fruit more than it is volume of fruit i reckon. not much head after it settles down either, but this isnt wanting for carbonation. beautiful white wine tang and passion fruit tartness in the nose and flavor, hints of lemon and chardonnay and light bretty funk somehow, unique in a berliner. the passion fruit is juicy and natural tasting, super robust in here, but it still tastes like beer with some dry white wheat giving it some cereal flavor and a little body to stand up to the acidity. pretty good pucker on this, not super sour, but long and tart with the fruit contributing a lot to that too. the oak is mild but its critical for unifying the beer, and it really does add a cool complexity to this, giving it a lot more maturity and yeast character it seems than it would have without it. one of the better editions of this beer i have had so far, they have a winner in this series! a standout for me in a lineup with a number of other similar beers...

Light copper in color with no head, but plenty of carbonation bubbles. It honestly looks like apple juice.
The aroma is of pale wheat and sweet and tropical passion fruit. I'm tasting the passion fruit, pear, pale wheat, and faint green apple. The mouth is moderately carbonated and very dry.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 2/21/2017. Pours slightly hazy pale golden/yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin ring of bubbles pretty quickly. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon, lime, pear, green apple, pineapple, berry, white grape, hay, straw, oak, pepper, wheat, and cracker; with light notes of leathery/musty funk, white wine vinegar, vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, passion fruit, oak, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon, lime, pear, green apple, pineapple, berry, white grape, hay, straw, oak, pepper, wheat, and cracker; with light notes of leathery/musty funk, white wine vinegar, vanilla, and yeast/oak earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness; light yeast/oak spiciness and fruit tang on the finish. Lingering notes of tart/sour passion fruit, papaya, mango, melon, lemon, lime, pear, green apple, pineapple, berry, white grape, hay, straw, oak, pepper, light funk/vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, passion fruit, oak, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/sourness balance; slightly increasing pucker after the finish. Moderate dryness from tart/sourness and carbonation, increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/acidic, and lightly tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a fantastic fruited Berliner weisse! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, passion fruit, oak, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink with the balanced sour/lactic/drying finish. Not super heavy on Lacto like most Bruery sours tend to be. Very well balanced with fruit and malts, with pleasant levels of Brett complexity. A highly enjoyable offering.
