3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Refreshingly, unexpectedly grainy over the lemony tart profile. Very palate quenching with crisp dry short flavors that prep you for the next round. Or sometimes I just order it solo and get into it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014/05/11 - Pours a hazy, pale yellow colour, with a large, foamy white head that quickly reduces. Aroma is dough, wheat, funk, and tart lemon. Taste is wheat, mild funk and a ton of tart lemon. Finish is crisp and refreshing. Light bodied, with thin, silky mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not a huge fan of the style, but still enjoyable on a warm, spring day.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Pours straw gold with haze. Short white soapy head. Nose robustly of pizza dough, and toasted bread. Smells like a pizza oven, in a good way. Unusually appetizing. Yeast and funk. Head flattens out quickly but is backed up by lots of champagne carbonation.
Very sour. Lightly salted. Apples, berry tart, and a tonne of lemon. Crusty with monster flavours for what reads as 3.7%. Very interesting. If somebody said this was a gose... I’d say "sure". It’s very complex and fun. Wheat beer crossed with a loaf of sour dough bread. I’d love to have this with some oysters. Delicious

2013-08-24. Hazy bright pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a bit odd, with a lactic grainy pale malt character, mild sourness. Flavour is pleasantly sour with grainy pale malt base, lovely lemony acidic notes but I find the graininess of the base is very distracting. Sour lemon character grows as you drink through it, improving it greatly for me but I still find that I don’t really care for it. Average to light bodied palate, low carbonation. Shows promise but just okay. In fairness a lot of what I don’t care for is common to many Berliner Weisses. A decent example of a style that is not one of my favorites. On tap at Volo Bellwoods Sunsplash event, Toronto

I'm having the 'Mash Pipe' which comes with a blackberry compote, but rating without.
Aroma of, well lactobacillus, which I'm trying to get used to as a 'good' aroma. Lemon comes through too. Cloudy yellow in colour with no head. Flavourwise, it's lactobacillus and lemon too...time for the compote.
Compote really mellows the aroma and taste, but I think it's better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub, May 7. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, grain, a touch of sourness and some vegetal notes (peas mainly). Slightly watery, light flavour, of yeast, citrus, tart fruit and grain. Light to average bodied. Probably right on style but not a style I love, I found it just O.K.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at brewpub. Hazy canary yellow. Not much of a head. Aroma rich with lactobaccilus, lemon curd, and Pedro. Light and thin, refreshing but a tad gassy. Lots of lacto sweetness changes the palate. Nice, and authentic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost greenish hazy colour. No head. Smells Berliner - with a hint of stank yeast, abundant wheat, and light celery. Light body, very wheaty and just a hint of acidity. Again a touch of footiness from the yeast. Authentic and decent, though I personally like them trater. I hope they buried a couple cases in the backyard and dig them up in two years.
They also do seasonal syrups, on this visit rhubarb. Nice touch, they’ve got style.
