2015 vintage, sampled at Station House, Forest Hills, Queens. Pours light yellow, minimal head. Aroma is gorgeous tart lemon, cherry, red wine, oak, wheat is mild. Terrific. Flavor is lemon, tart funk, oak, again not much wheat. Wow, that is excellent. Medium to heavy acidity that works well.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear light golden with no head whatsoever, and a huge funky lemony wheaty nose, almost like a Berliner but with no brine, all tartness and a herbal bit of funk. Crisp and dry flavor full of tart funky lemon, a semisweet citrus peel tone and a sneaky bit of gentle salt.

Tap at CBM Otemachi. Great aroma. Taste not so exciting for me but still nice. Nice sourness, light Brett funk but more about sourness. Not so much wheat character. Quite dry, little bit of oaky creaminess. Reminiscent of cuvee de ranke, especially in aroma but without the spark in the taste. Quite fruity. Berries. Peaches and cream. Nice.

375 mL bottle shared by Gus. The pour is a bright clear darker golden yellow with no head and no lace to be found. The aroma is excellent. There is a crisp bright tartness and a lovely acidic bit here. It’s basic and bright and I love it. The flavor is good also. There is a bright butt puckering. Sourness that is so good. I gleated everywhere on this one. The sour is bright and tart. This is a very basic sour but it’s very well done. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a great bubbly carbonation and a lingeringly sour finish. This is a really good start to the day.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, and Gus for our mini-share extravaganza. Aroma is funky, tart, citrus, barnyard, wheat, yowza. Appearance is golden, mostly clear, white head. Taste is quite sour, I had a hard butthole pucker. Citrus, funk, wheat, barnyard, dusty, I like it a lot. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, tart wheat aftertaste. Overall, this is solidly the best Berliner I’ve had thus far.

500mL shared at Woodshop 10. Clear straw color with high carbonation. Vanilla cake nose, mild yogurt, light pomelo. Taste is medium acid, honey roll, lemon citric bite is forefront. Maybe not enough of that doughiness for me.
