3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on-tap at Iron Hill Lancaster.
A – Pours pale yellow with a small half finger tall white head leaving light lacing down the glass.
S – Smells of lemon zest, chewy wheat, and a touch of light funk. This one is pretty spot on for the style.
T - Starts off with a strong tart lemon kick slowly giving way to a mix of chewy wheat and a very light sweetness that fades quickly. The lemon is strong but the wheat helps to bring it back down to earth. The finish is a mix of tartness and chewy wheat. This is easy to drink, perfect for a hot day like today.
M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Tart, crisp, feel with a mix of lemon and chewy wheat lingering on the pallet for a short period of time. Very nice, light, feel that is easy to drink.
O - I really liked this one. It was very easy to drink and the flavors were spot on for the style. I might have to try this one with one of the syrups in it next time but the regular version is very good as well.

Simple Berliner. Clear pale yellow body, thin white head, minimal lacing. Straight lemon juice. Just a hint of lactic tartness--of which it could use more. Light bodied, gentle carbonation, nice pop of acidity. Lack complexity.

Drank at GABF 2012. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head,. A sweet nose with honey and lemons. The flavor is very easy and light with low tartness, sweet honey, light toasted malts. Decent. We need this on tap in Utah due to the low ABV!
