2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale straw gold with a thin white head. Lactic sour nose, soft breadiness behind. Thin bodied with a crisp finish, moderate lactic sourness, but a bit medicinal overall. This just didn’t round out like some of the other berliners I’ve had, thin and sharp.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tried this recently from a growler. Colour... light straw with gently bubbles. Nose... slightly yeasty, some butyl esters, cut wheat grass. Palate... a burst of carbonation up front with some delicate esters, newly mown hay and a quick finish. Somehow expected more from Full Sail, but they certainly make up for it with such animals as the Black Gold and the Top Sail!

Draft pour @ Brouwer’s Sour Fest 2009. Completely clear golden yellow, small white head. Stinky nose of dried grass and DMS. Skunky light-struck character on a kegged berliner weisse. Lightly prickly, low carbonation, minimal lactic acidity. Vegetal, grainy, nutty. Terrible.
