3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 1/29/15 from a capped 500mL bottle, big thanks to Chuck for hooking me up with this one. Pours hazy golden orange with an average white head that recedes to thin, bubbly lace before completely disappearing. The nose is nice and tart with a touch of cereal wheat and caramel malt, a light pitted fruitiness, and some nicely spicy funk. The flavor is much the same tart lemon peel and light pitted fruit, with just a touch of cereal wheat malt and nice dry funk. The body is light with lively carbonation and a medium touch of fruity tart and dry funky finish.

Bottle thanks to dogday. Hazy yellowish-gold pour with a small bubbly head that quickly fades to a very thin ring. Aromas are sour lemon juice, light yogurt funk, light barnyard and pineapple. Light sourness in the taste. Moderately acidic. Lots of lemon, some wood, light pineapple, and a woody finish. Light body. Easy to drink.

Bottle: The aroma moderate-heavy citrus, lemon, funk, and mild must. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a minimal film outlined by a very fine ring. The flavor starts with a good dose of tart citrus. The finish has light-moderate lemon, must, lemon peel, and orange. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, not so much a Berliner, but a really good Sour Ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Cloudy, bright sunshine yellow body with a quickly fleeting white head that is completely gone in a few seconds. Aroma of sour lemon, tart lacto yeast, musty hay, vanilla yogurt, stone fruit, a nice waft of sweaty jockstrap funk, & some old pineapple. Bright flavor; tons of zesty lemon, stone fruit, citrus, & pineapple. Less funk on the palate, but some modest hay & must notes are hidden in the periphery. Nice graininess & sour wheat note with a small touch of lacto & wood leading into a super dry finish. Light bodied, high carbonation that fits the style. Goddamn solid Berliner.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Hazy straw-colored pour with a small, quickly dissipating, white head. The nose is a citrusy blend of key lime and lemon meringue accompanied by subtle breadiness. Light to medium-bodied with jazzy carbonation. The flavor is so very sour and citric with a crisp, tart, snappy finish. Pulls up just shy of being world class. Bottle courtesy of the ever-generous 50belair!

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a deep golden orange color with an off white head. The aroma is nice with some lactic peaches. Very bright and pleasantly acidic with a little funk. The flavor is lactic and lemony with some peaches and a touch of white vinegar. Touches of oak add complexity that makes this more of a "sour’ rather than a Berliner IMO. Very tasty.
