On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mild lemon, olives. Taste is briny, olives, lemon peel, dry wood finish. Very pleasant (and for me a much needed break from the richer christmas beers I’ve been drinking).

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Great acidity, great malt balance. Aroma was pleasant and not overwhelming. Mixed with some home made syrups I made as well and held up to my favorite German-made Berlinerweisses. Great example of the style!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours hazy yellow gold with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is relatively tame with notes of lemon grass, dusty wheat, and a strange sourness that I can’t quite put my finger on. Flavor shows lemon warheads, unripe green grapes, green apple skins, and cracker malt. The more I drink, the sour almost seems artificial (tartaric acid??) rather than a product of lacto. Overall body is light to moderate and the finish is dry.
