4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of green apple, elderberry, and lemony, sharp, citrus fruit, with subtle grass. Slightly hazy, light bronze-gold, with a lasting ring of white lace. Tart, dry, and funky, with sharp, crispy, fruity flavors of apple, melon, and white peach. Light bodied, crispy, and very clean, especially considering the ABV.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looking for a sour that's not sour? This is it. Light pee yellow nice lacing. Sour is light and lacks serious tartness. My guess is from the yuzu

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Medium white head atop clear straw body, nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, kiwi, some funk, light sour. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, light alcohol, sourness. Soft medium body, some stickiness. Not bad, but I agree with RB that at 8% and a body to match, this is not a Berliner Weisse.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice citrus nose. More citrus on palate, is it yuzu, cant really tell. Lack of sourness is disappointing. Nice wheat flavor. Solid overall

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pours hazy yellow with a fizzy head. Lemon zest, citrus, and wheat right away, with some isovaleric funk in there. A very pleasant, light mouthfeel. Flavor is very citrus-forward, with a hint of tartness balancing it out. Some of the flavor tastes artificial, like sweet n low, but overall this is solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Noc Noc on the Haight. Pours a thin straw yellow color. Nose is faint elements of funk, wheat, and citrus notes. Flavor is basically the same as the nose, blended well, but just not as loud as I would’ve liked it. I want a Berliner to make my whole face pucker. Good for what it is though, very drinkable for 8%.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some fruit notes (I assume it is yuzu) as well as a lot of biscuit and bready malt. The flavor is similar. There is a strong orange/yuzu note with some light cinnamon and apple notes, as well as some biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice, just not really any tartness and the alcohol got a bit boozy as I drank more of the bomber.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Poured pale yellow with a moderate egg-shell/white head. Nose had faint fruits, definitely yuzu coming through. Tasted earthy and herbal, yuzu reminded of faint tea spice. Some wheated tones came through nicely with a dry mouthfeel especially towards the finish. Just a touch of acid. I wish there was more sourness here, but still a fine tasting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The sourness in this beer is like a picked cactus juice. Plenty of acid, but the malts just don’t carry the weight of the beer. A good idea for a beer, but not as good a result as many of this brewer’s other ideas yield.
