3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Consumed side-by-side with bottled Bruery Hottenroth for comparison purposes. The pour yields a very lightly hazy golden-straw body strewn with effervescing micro-bubbles. A thin and wispy head of off-white foam is quick to dissipate. Scant wet spots of lace rejoin the body. The nose is very wheat heavy, showing clean cereal grain notes that dominate the secondary lactic acidity. It’s a little muddled for a Berliner, not as crisp as the better examples of the style. Flavors follow the nose, coming across just a bit more wet than I care for, with a strong wheat contingent. Lactic acidity is again lacing, and I’d prefer a little more in the way of citrus tendencies. The palate is a bit round, not as lively and sharp as the great Berliners are. Decent brew, but it is definitely not without fault.

Half pour into tulip at the brewery. Nose is citrus and mild, smooth and lightly crisp, slight funk and tart, floral, almost like roses. Flavor is very light and refreshing, all things I want in a true Berliner. Citrus and floral notes follow the nose. Light body... I can drink this all day.

Growler shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad!
The beer is hazy and straw yellow in color with a white head. The aroma offers some tropical fruit, hops, grain, a touch of yeast. Decent flavor, but would prefer a bit more sour/lactic character. Light spice. A bit too grainy for me. Very light bodied, almost watery . Moderately light carbonation and pretty smooth on the palate. Overall, a decent example of the style. A few minor flaws, but still quite pleasant and easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Poured clear golden color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate wheat sour fruit aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light sour fruit flavor with a light sour finish of moderate duration. Interesting, but again not my style.
