4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a Firestone Walker tulip at Rose & Crown pub in Palo Alto. Pours a hazy bright golden orange with a huge white head. Looks gorgeous in the sunlight. Nose has some acidity, lemons, maybe apricots, light funk, floral. The taste is insanely clean with medium carbonation and full mouth feel for being only 3.4%. Taste of light hay, lemons, earthy brett, wheat and maybe oats. Overall extremely drinkable and refreshing. I had to order two! Awesome job by Firestone, which in my opinion can do no wrong. Incredible berliner style with brett that apparently can take as little as three weeks to make.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Bottleworks. Listed as "Barrelworks Bretta Weisse" so I’m not sure if this beer changes recipes slightly as others noticed it called something else at the tap room. Pours a clear, light golden with big white head. Aroma is lemon peel, mild to slight funk, slight dairy overtones. Taste is a very mild lactic sour with load of ripe lemon peel, lemon and slight, ok little to no, funk. The sourness is dry and something that makes this a very easy to drink berliner. As of now, this would be my summer berliner or choice going forward. Please start growler fills of this ASAP.

Golden pour with a slight haze and a white head. The nose is incredibly fruity. Notes of peach, lemon, and tropical fruits. A hint of yogurt, straw, grass, and sweet wheat. Nice tartness to the flavor and a good lemon flavor. A bit of yogurt, nice tropical fruit character, straw, grass, and very light bread and wheat sweetness. Nice dry finish to this one.

Pours a hazy yellow. A bright sour note hits the nose but this is really soft on the palate. Not super sour but you get a touch of the Brett and some citrus followed by the wheat in the finish. Hope to see this in bottles soon.
