Drank from a 500 milliliters can purchased at Aslin Beer Company, Herndon, VA
02/22/17
Served in a goblet

Hazy, pale straw yellow appearance. The body was capped by finely beaded, fizzy white crown that quickly dissolved. No lacing whatsoever.

The nose was pure tropical fruit bliss. Passionfruit dominated. There was an intense, exotic, overripe fruity note as well. I might not guess mango per se, but this seemed possible. Sweeter overall than expected for the style. Somewhat musty and funky. Wheaty. Bit of crisp lemony tartness too.

The flavor followed the nose. Big passionfruit notes right from the start. Fairly sweet up front. Somewhat tart and lemony as well. Wheaty in the center. Slightly musty. Touch of grainy malt. More lemony tartness on the back end and in the finish. Moderately acidic. Nice mix of lingering sweet-tart notes after the swallow.

Light, crisp, zippy mouthfeel. Lively and sprightly. A touch syrupy. The liquid turned somewhat creamy and frothy on the palate. Appropriate for the style. Toward the end of the glass, the acids in the beer felt like they were starting to strip the enamel from my teeth.

Every Aslin beer I have sampled thus far has been a home run, and this Berliner Weisse is no exception. It is truly remarkable how well this brewery does with so many different beer styles. I am already looking forward to my next trip to northern Virginia so that I can try more of their amazing offering.

On tap at brewery 9/24/16. These are my notes.

L: No head, no lacing, ring. Color is pale straw

S: mango then passion fruit then light wheat

T: follows nose, very fruit packed yet restrained

F: light body, light to medium carb, crisp but lightly sweet, not cloying but maybe a tad out of balance

O: very solid berliner but maybe need to control sweetness a tiny bit

Pours a hazy bright orange with not much head or lacing. Smell is primarily passion fruit and mango. Taste is similar, and a bit one dimensional. I love Aslin, but this one didn't do so much for me.
