Bottle: Poured a light hazy pale yellow color weisse with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of lactic sour notes with light subtle smoky flavour are quite interesting. Taste is a good mix between some lactic sour notes with some subtle smoky notes which are really not overpowering. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed with nice light touch of wheat notes.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Very cloudy yellow amber with a pillowy marshmallow fluff white head. Rows of lace. Overripe Meyer lemons. Some juicy fruit wheat notes. Mildly firm sweet and sour. Nicely balanced with a wood chip smokey bitterness. Sipping quickly the flavors feel divided and almost at odds (smokiness doesn?t kick in until the end.) Taking it in slowly the flavors play together much better. A juicy orange with a charred black skin. Medium palate. Interesting take on a Berliner Weiss.

330 ml bottle. Pours cloudy amber with small white head. Intensive roasty aroma with hints of sourness. Very sour tastewith notes of citrus and the roast disappearing into the background. The palate is dominated by a sourness that vanishes quickly and leaves a roasty finish. Very interesting beer!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
on tap at st. sour day, This has hints of smoke but mostly sour acidity, the slightly darker appearance than i was expecting, its not your stock standard bright gold, this i would assume is from the smoked essence. The taste of sour citrus and hints of smoke engulf the mouth upon each sip. This was on par for the mouthfeel with lots of carbonation and a great lightness to the body. Overall this was great and im glad i have a couple bottles in the cellar for the Berliner Tasting later.
