Very lightly hazed gold with a small white head. Lemons! Tart Berliner base with lots of lemon zest. Sour and tons of lemons. Great stuff!

Draft. Perfectly clear, luminescent yellow -- the color of Slimer from Ghostbusters. One inch of pure white froth caps the spooky liquid. The nose displays notes of Lemonheads, fresh grass and lemon zest. The hops work incredibly well with the citrus. A mild, funky lactic punch hits in the background. The flavor’s sugary up front, with lemon zest and simple syrup. Grass appears again, as do mild lactic funk and citrusy tartness. Brilliant balance, good complexity and avoids the foot/vomit funk that many Berliners suffer from. Light body. Super-high carbonation is almost painful at times. Zesty and refreshing. One of the best Berliners I’ve ever had. The hops are pronounced and work beautifully with the lemons; the tartness is at a perfect level; the carbonation enhances the citrus and tartness. Amazing.

Lemony smell. Taste is lemon and wheat. Mouthfeel is semi-light with effervescent carbonation.

DesertDevil (685) - Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2014
On draft at the brewpub. Not much at all on the nose — just a touch of lemon juice, a tiny tartness, and a wet citrus-leaf note. Pours a clear, extremely light yellow with barely any head. The lemon flavor bites early on the taste, yet the puckering tartness and sweetness are perfectly balanced. Light wheat and a grassy tone pop up late. Light, refreshing body that goes down as easy as water. Nice brew.

deyholla (9935) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2014
Growler thanks to Ilya! Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma is full of musty earthy wheat with a hint of tart lemons backing. Flavor is similar with earthy wheat and earthy lemon as well as a hint of funk backing. Finish is slightly dry.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 16, 2014
[ Keg ][ Fate ][ 4oz ][ $1.75 ][ Mini Flute ][ 4/12/14 ]
>> Clear straw white pour. Ring of white foam. Nose is dough, biscuit, sour mash, quite funky, gamey honey. Taste is clean, bright, dusty, mild lemon, not too sour, mild sour mash character Bells Oarsman style, perfume flavor like lemon verbena. Good stuff.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2014
On tap @ Fate! Light straw-colored pour with a tightly packed ivory crown that subsides into a wisp and ring quickly. Lots of tiny bubbles percolating from the bottom of the glass. Streams, really. Lots of lemony sourness, rind and pith bitterness, and grassy earthiness. Light and refreshing. Solid.

StephTamiko (45) - Arizona, USA - APR 5, 2014
Clear yellow-tinged draft pour in new Fate Brewing branded teku glass. Light funky aroma with faint citrus. Flavors of lemon & zest with tart, pucker finish. Pretty much a liquid version of the sour sugar-coated lemon candy!

thebitterendaz (35) - Alabama, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours an absolutely stunning clear golden color. Aroma and taste of fresh lemon, like a lemonhead. Citra hop finish. 4 pounds of lemon zest used. Adam nailed this one!

JPDurden24 (1672) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2014
On tap at the brewery, hazy straw yellow pour with small white head. Aroma is lemony and some sour notes. Taste is lemony and light sour and tart. Light, refreshing and damn tasty.
