Pours a very cloudy yellow color. A lot of citrus and fruity aromas come out of it. A little sweet and then quite tart followed by some slight bitterness that lingers on the palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle, lots of carbonation, almost champagne like. Hazy yellow color, big head. Aroma of lemons, yeast, apples. Taste is immediately sharp, almost off putting. Citrus and sour funk going on, and a cider taste. Very odd. Not a favorite.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2009 bottle. pours hazy almost cloudy pale yellow with a towering white head, good retention and lacing. lemon, wheat, bretts - moderate but very nice funk, dust, few bananas, flowers and ginger, nice lactic acidity. champagne-like effervescence, light body, lightly acidic and herbal-citrusy finish. not overly complex - but i don’t believe the style can offer a lot more, very quenching. high drinkability. loved it!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours the color of light straw and with exceptional clarity. Continually effervescing and capturing and light. It had a thick white head of loose soapy foam that fell off very quickly to a scant film and thin ring. No lace. The nose was light. Sweet lemon peel and then a little tart citrus. Tiny bit of spice. Floral and with a light wheat dryness on the nose and a hint of cracker. There is a sweet honey like quality underneath that is perfectly poised with the sweeter aspect of the lemon but it’s bashful and never comes out from behind the fruit. It has a good musty yeast smell that is not too strong or off putting. It also has a fresh earthy quality like wet hay that is dewey and damp. Taste is as clean and clear as the body of the beer. Light sweet lemon peel greets the palate followed by the tart citrus. This was not at all sour. The cracker malt and wheat are dry and carry a little faint spice and musty barnyard to the back palate where it fades without much aftertaste but leaves a dry and cleansed palate. Body of the beer is well carbonated and light.
This was not terribly complex. It had exceptional balance and poise. Well turned out and sparkling . Vivacious and enlivening. A terrific beer with a low abv that is the perfect thirst quencher for a hot day. Would compliment almost any food.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2009 vintage. Big gusher at first, I managed to tame it quick and got a nice big pour out of it. Pours a cloudy yellow with a nice and playful white head that unfortunately doesn’t leave any lacing. Aroma is intense lacto sharpness followed by some funk and wheat. Taste is less puckering than expected, more tart than sour, really. Light soured wheat mostly. Mouthfeel is nice and light (bordering on medium) making for an extremely drinkable berliner. Great!
