COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
a.k.a. Chrisís Summer Delight, an unfiltered, refreshingly tart small batch beer conceived by our own Chris Haveman from 50% wheat malt and just a touch of Hersbrucker hops.

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle from samís. Golden orange with a small white head. Nose of husky wheat, stewed veggies, raw broccoli, plastic, sweet malt, light yogurt--would never guess Berliner if blind. Flavor is a little better, more tart, some Lemon, but still way to husky and not clean at all. Not terrible, but Iíve been raised on Dickinsonbeer Berliners which are among the best Iíve ever tasted.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle; poured a clear, darker gold with an average off white head. Aroma of lemon, wheat, zest, tartness, bit of moist bread, and something else I really couldnít determine. Flavor was far from great, but it was adequate. A tart presence throughout, but not all that strong. Wheat and lemon, with a good dose of minerals and salt. Some seltzer like elements. Fine for a summer time beer.

$4.50 of goodness. Deep hazy gold with a soft thin white head. Wheaty nose with lemony tart notes. Some pie crust. Lemon zest. Custard. Light palate. Nice.

Awesome sour beer Berliner Weisse style. Just the right amount of acidic bite in the middle, nice clean wheat finish. Seriously smells like mown grass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Tap at OBF. Pours hazy gold with a disappearing head. Mild sour fruit aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is sour with something like lemon and light pitted fruit. The sour is firm, but not super strong. Thereís a touch of bread in the finish.

tgncc (2740) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 25, 2012
The aroma is sour, grainy, toasted malt. Not sweet at all. The appearance is gold/orange, quickly dissipating white head. The flavor is sour, vegetables, lemon, cardboard. The finish is tart, dry, grainy flavors, cardboard. Light/medium in body. Not good at all. This beer is the reason why they started cutting berliner weiss with raspberry syrup.

KyotoLefty (6141) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2012
Draught at the Pilsner Room in Portland. Bright golden, with a thick, fine white head. Faint nose of lemon, minerals and a bit of lactic acid. Lemon flavor, light yogurt, big malt, quite salty. Alka-seltzer like minerals. Nice lemon, but it lacks sufficient lacto character.

jtclockwork (7897) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with white head. Nose/taste of banana, lemon, sour mash and wheat malt. Finishes slightly tart. Lighter body.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. A touch of corn and funk on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet and grainy, a hint of lactic acid. Then gets a touch unpleasant, old paper and grain. Wheat and corn juice, some off flavors and then lemon juice. Strange papery bitterness follows, grainy and weird. Not the best example of the style. Vaguely drinkable, but not really worthwhile.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
On tap at Saravezaís IIPA Fest, to cleanse the palate. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is heavy on the wheat, with a slight tartness. Flavour is very wheaty, with only a slight tartness - very low acidity. Refreshing I suppose, but not so well made.
