Bordering a Belgian witbier, this is a decent approximation of the Berliner weisse style. The tartness is there, in the background, not upfront like a Kindl Weisse. I’d like to try this with some of the German flavor syrups. Pale golden with thin foamy head (short-lived). Body is light, flavor is wheat bread with some citrusy tartness. Finish is slightly dry. Refreshing on a hot day.

A: Gold with a slight haze under a pure white head. S: Lemon bread, light funk
T: Lemony tart with light bread.
F: Light, refreshing and very effervescent.
O: This is not as lemony and mouth puckeringly sour as some Berliner Weisse and it also has more malt and wheat character which for many, is a good thing.

Scored a six pack of bombers from a friend that aged them for 2+ years (drink by date of 9/12) because he didn't like them but didn't want to throw them away...needless to say, this beer has aged very well!!!

Color- light hazy gold. Medium head.

Aroma- earthy, grainy with lemon zest and hint of radish.

Taste- An interesting and complex brew. Starts tart yet clean like a mild sour Flemish ale with hint of lemon, then turn clean and almost lager like but finishes with a mild lingering wheatiness. A truly unusual and complex brew unlike anything we've had before. Don't drink too cold. Another in the Brewer's Share series.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a tawny color with surprising clarity. Cloudy is expected here. Bubbly white head holds for a little while at and inch in height,but eventually falls. No lacing.

S: Grainy and bready on the nose. Mild grape skin aroma and a mild acidic tartness. Very bland.

T: Lemony tartness up front. Tart white grape. Papery oxidation. This is quickly overtaken by wheaty, doughy, bready, and cereal grains. Finish is more of the same.

M: Thin body. No real substance at all. Tight carbonation brings a very light and soft scrub.

O: This bottle is over a year old, but I've heard of Berliners lasting up to a couple of years. At least the ones that actually use Brett. This did not hold up, but even still I doubt it was very good in the first place. Not tart enough and seriously lacking substance all around.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a wine glass.

A: Golden hue. Light carbonation. Slight bubbly head, quickly settles leaving nothing. No lacing.

S: Banana, honey, and yeast.

T: Yeasty with a slight bit of fermented raspberry, tinged with a hint of sweetness.

M: Light and crisp. Feels a bit shallow. Washed-out finish.

D: Sessionable.

Atmosphere is okay. No real head or lacing. Nose is light tropical fruit and bread. Yeasty, with a little tart and sweet fruit. Overall, this is an okay quaff.

22oz bottle poured into a pair of snifters. Fridge temp (maybe 40 F), 030-D-1-0257 is the bottle code. This is my first berliner weiss, so if I love it or hate it...take that into account. I do like sours, and I love a good wheat beer, but not a fan of lagers or most German styles.

Pours clear golden with a very slight coppery tinge. Plenty of carbonation but not much head. Smell is slightly sour, lemony, wheaty, yeasty.

Taste strikes me right off as very sour, unsweetened lemonade comes to mind. My wife, on the other hand, thinks it's barely sour at all, which is very puzzling. A few more sips apparently lets me become more accustomed to the flavor, it seems richer and sweeter, but still a strong lemon flavor for me. It's very light and refreshing. Flavorful without being overpowering.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. I like this beer. I see why it might be a summer style. I find it refreshing and good.

22 oz bottle pours a crystal clear gold color with a large cap of frothy white head. Good retention and lacing, looks good at least.

Hmmmm, the first thing I got was a crackery malt akin to a lager, light sour notes when looking deeper.

Where to start? The malt seems a little too biscuity and not crisp enough, and the beer flavors in the background are quite watery. Not nearly sour enough either, just a light lemon squeeze is all I am getting. Its more like an unsweetened radler and less like a berliner. I'll easily finish my bomber, but even at the modest price of $5, I wont be going back for more. A shame too, because I would loooove to have an affordable , decently sour berliner available here.
