3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub in Gilbert, Arizona. The pour is cloudy yellow, with a well formed ½ inch white head. The aroma is tart citrus lemon along with fresh cereal bread malt. The taste is the tart lemon of the nose, and also picks up a nice general fruit flavor, grain notes and finishes almost on the sour side of tartness. The palate is light bodied, active carbonation and a dry tart finish. Solid.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewery, 12/30/15.
Shimmering, bright, very hazy, pale-golden body is topped by a large amount of white head that slowly recedes to cover.
Lactic notes in the nose are immediately joined by a playful fruitiness (nectarines, starfruit, apples) that softens the usual stiff nature of a berliner weisse. Faint bits of honey, lots of raw wheat graininess and no alcohol or flaws make for a fun, more easygoing rendition.
The flavor continues this, with a softer, slightly maltier texture, with sweeter tropical fruits (there’s more ripe mango/pineapple here than the usual dry nectarine/apricot). Lactic acid adds plentiful tartness, but there’s no heavy breadiness from the wheat nor borderline dirtiness from the lactic character. Very flavorful, with a wonderful texture and tight carbonation.

Draught @ Mikropolis. Pours hazy pale yellow with a frothy white head that leaves some sticky trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is subtle, tiny malty and tiny fruity with crackers, lemon juice, yoghurt, dry soil and lemon zest. Taste is sour, tiny salty and slightly fruity. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, tart and light bodied. Finish is sour with crackers, lemon juice, yuzu juice, yoghurt, hay, minerals and lemon zest. Highly drinkable and tasty berliner. Job well done... Would love to try some fruited versions in the future.
