3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is mostly grainy, but it also presents light notes of lemon zest, lactic acid and an unfortunate, herbal/hoppy component that just doesn’t belong in this style of beer. Light-bodied and lightly carbonation. The flavor is more fruity, grainy and sweet than it is tart. Finishes tangy and then dry. Not as acidic as I would have liked. Bottle courtesy of Walt!

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
