Pours a golden yellow, very cloudy. Yeast and tart notes top the aroma. On the palate, tartness abounds, some yeast giving it a very chewy mouthfeel. Not much in the way of actual flavor though.

At my place with some friends who don’t give a shit about beer. Cloudy murky yellow. Aroma is yeast bomb, but not in a belgiumy fruit kinda way, just straight yeast like what you would pitch into home brew. Some wheat, and orange. Taste is a vile of yeast, some sweet orange and lemon. Finish is medium length and citric but the gross yeast is still there.

arminjewell (5720) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pour on tap at GABF, slightly hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought tart lemon, biscuit, hints of cracker, yeasty notes with lots of grainy, corn notes. Taste is a bit of oak, lemon and lactic notes, hints of cracker with a touch of spice, finishing fairly tart, slightly dry.

jkwood04 (3438) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 12, 2013
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a small, white head. Aroma of barnyard and lemon notes, some pale malts, and light wheat notes. Flavor the same with a nice funk to it. Average texture. A decent Berliner, but something is a little off.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks! Hazy yellow color, white head. Aroma of subtle belly button. Taste is softly sour and fruity, but a bit metallic.

ChinoSkillzian (135) - The Hills, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle thanks to Bobby. Pours a light yellow color with small head. Aromas of lemon, stone fruits, acid, some biscuit. Palate is lightly tart, with flavors of citrus, peach, light yeast, and some pineapple. Finish is dry and crisp.

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
750mL thanks to djd07. Low carbonation on a clear golden pour. Extreme coaxing does give a fizzing out white head as expected for a Berliner. Nose is peach, funk, lemon, herbs, honey. Taste is watery, harsh raw malt, bland and dry lemon water. No sourness really. Barely tart. Drinkable lemonade with some chalky pale grist. Hints of lactic lemonade in back.

Light, effervescent, slightly tart. It has some tanginess, decent berliner, but nto amazing.

deyholla (5975) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a note of funky yogurt with backing light tart fruits. Flavor has a touch of the same tart yogurt note but tartness is more from fruit with a wheat backing
