3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 didn’t do that on their first attempt.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.
