This is a Berliner Weiss. For the style, a very well done representation. Clean, light alcohol, and very pleasant sourness, almost a citrus aftertaste and mouth feel, definite lacto. Well done. I give it a high score for the style. Most other breweries throw fruit in or other flavors to appeal to the public. I appreciate that they didnít do that on their first attempt.

arminjewell (6070) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Pour on tap at Crankenstein, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grain, biscuit and some bready yeast, nice lemony lactic notes with a hint of spice, pretty clean overall. Taste is fairly nice and much more lactic than I thought, some nice grain, bread, biscuit and corn notes, slight vegetal note with a hint of yeast, finishing fairly tart. Pretty nice.

SirADNielsen (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Tap @ Cranknstein Foco. Hazy, somewhat cloudy light yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly tart, tangy, light lemon, coconut, vanilla, straw aroma. Somewhat tart flavor with notes of sour lemon and vanilla. Overall, it was decent and better than I expected based on the raunchy name.

beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Aroma had some sour notes, but was fairly restrained. The taste was mostly a blast of lactic sourness with a really dry finish. It seems to be lacking that hint of brett that makes a berliner so good.

Tap. Pours slightly hazy yellow with thin, fizzy white head; decent retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is sour fruit, sauerkraut, straw malt, floral notes, and light pine. Flavor is straw and sweet malt forward with supporting sour fruit notes and faint grassy hops; tart, dry finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2012
On tap at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours a light-moderate grain color. Lightly tart. Some wheat. Faint acetic character in the finish. Okay, but fairly tame and nothing too interesting about it.
