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.

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.

Straw blonde in color. Apricots on the nose. Solid, earthy feel and just the right amount of sour. Refreshing spring summer beer
