4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a finger of fizz. On the nose its spot on berliner... tart lemon, round cheerio malts and a little dusty barrel funk. The palate follows the nose with great refreshing notes of lime, lemony funk, a little yogurt acidity and some lingering wood notes. Nice beer.

Pours a pale, hazy straw color with a thin white head of foam. Smells funky and wheaty. Mild tartness with a dry, wheaty finish. Pretty good Berliner in my book.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
murky light gold, thin white ring with oily top. Sulfuric grain nose, light lactic and egg, really must. Flavor shows more grain, lemonade spritz, lightly thin in the finish, watery, could use more grain, lactic levels higher, carbonation appropriate, pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Huhzubendah. Poured a yellow color. I believe many of us agreed that this one smelled a little strange and funky, and perhaps not in the good way. However, the flavor was a lot better, some tart puckering sour notes in here.
