2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow/straw with a white head. Nose is sort of sulfury, a little vegetal, maybe some dog food, too. A light grainy note, lemon peel, slightly bacterial. The flavor is a bit better than the nose. Lemon peel, grapefruit, light grain, sulfur, and grass. Little bit of Jolly Rancher, too. Really weird...not a big fan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… Berliner Bash on the Bay 2012… Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The nose is of New Zealand hops. Light-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and Champagne-like carbonation. The flavor provides light bitterness and even milder acidity. Perfectly balanced. Short, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

Tap at Peg’s and later at 7venth Sun. Full haze straw with sheets of complete white lace. Rich dry hop nose...Citra (?), pineapple, Nelson, NZ melony hops. Taste is lighter, soapy, watery, seltzer, light melony and squashy hops. No acid character really. Slight lemon juice. Thinner palate.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours up pale hazy gold with white head. The modest aroma offers up grainy malts to a bit cereal and semi tart citrus. The taste is full up crisp refreshingly fresh goodness where I’m getting tangelo, grapefruit and lemon that runs up into increasing levels of tartness. All while this is happening the flavor is grounded by a pleasing grainy malt to cereal note that also pulls this thing together and gives it balance. It ends with a tropical mango fruit twist. Wow!! Well done. I could drink a shit ton of this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Peg’s Berliner Bash. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a nice golden color with a good white head. The nose brings forward a really nice white grape and gooseberry character. The Nelson Sauvin is very noticeable without being over the top. Faintly reminiscent of Amarillo as well. Wheat base and light acidity. Dry and thirst quenching. Another very excellent berliner from 7venth Sun.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Peg’s for Berliner Bash 2012. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is tart citrus, some light malt, and the tropical fruit and white grape character of those great Nelson hops. Flavor is similar with mild tart citrus and wheat coming into the front followed by a nice Nelson punch. Nice use of Nelson hops in this medium-bodied berliner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Berliner Bash, poured a light yellow color, aromas of straw, light hops, and some grass. Flavors are the same, I overheard someone say next to me it tasted like a watered down Jai Lai from CCB, after he said that I would have to agree with him.
