nsipid pour with a strange dull hue. Pale white up to the light. Green apple, tart, and bile shows in the aroma. Very tart in the mouth, oatmeal in the finish why some biley notes mixed in. Not bad but could be cleaner.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Birch Bar Norfolk, VA for Zwanze ’14, pours cloudy pale straw yellow with 2 finger head. Nose is straight up offensive, total garbage juice, hot dumpster and horse manure. Smells terrible. Taste thankfully is not as bad with a pretty standard take on a berliner, soggy mish mash grain and low tartness stonefruit, hints of lemon and citrus. The negative elements do come through but are subdued on the palate. Finish is moderate tart citrus and round lemon with low acidity and some stale grain. Pass.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a growler at some point during the RBWG Asheville festivities. Pours hazy dark yellow with a thick white head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is on the maltier side of berliner with a ton of creamy wheat and some light lemon acidity. The flavor is about the same with more creamy wheat than anything and a nice, crisp lemon acidity. The body is light with lively, nearly sparkling carbonation and a medium creamy wheat and decently tart finish.
