3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of smoke, wheat, citrus and mild sourness. The lactic sourness is more present in the flavor than in the aroma, it’s joined by smoke, citrus and wheat, the flavor is very sharp and refreshing. The body is bigger than what I expect from a Berliner Weisse, although it’s not too heavy, the texture is a bit oily and the carbonation is lively. This might not be the best of the style, but it’s definitely worth a try and I wouldn’t mind buying this again.

Stunning. Get one. Get two. Get in! This is smokey on opening, smokey in the glass and smokey in the mouth, with softness from the malt and a sharp bitter but not over the top finish. It’s just a good beer .

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smoky more than sour. Milky, but also, somehow, thin. Not bad, but didn’t live up to my Oh too high expectations.
