3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split with adnielsen. Not a gusher, but big foamy pour. Hazy hay appearance. Aroma is slightly cheesy. Taste is thankfully none of that...but nice bright tart fruits. Bit of wine grapes and dragonfruit. Not super puckering, but a definite pleasant tartness that lingers on the back of the tongue.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle via ericjones. 1062 17:18 stamped on bottle neck. The pour is a clear faded golden yellow with a huge frothy 4 inch white head. The head falls slowly and rockily. The aroma is soft lemon citrus tartness, wheat grain and a whisper of hay. The taste is citric lemon tartness, initially quite strong, than softens nicely to reveal the wheat and hay character. Some grapefruit bitterness becomes evident as the beer warms. The palate is light bodied, with a high level of carbonation and the tart citric citrus lemon finish. Very balanced and full of character beer, quite an accomplishment for a 3% beer. Really easy drinking, expertly made Berliner. Thanks for the trade on this one Eric.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 8/17/14 from a capped 12oz bottle given to me by Chris Drews, big thanks, Chris! Pours hazy pale yellow with a massive, gusher-like, rocky white head that slowly recedes to massive, pillowy lace. The nose is light wheat malt, a touch lactic, with some tart citrus. The flavor is even more tart with a hint of white peppercorn, very bright citrus, and the same light wheat malt from the nose. The body is light with over-active carbonation and a medium tart lemon finish. Very good, but a bit hard to enjoy due to the massive amount of carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great tart aroma, if slightly subdued . Green apples, funk, vinegar, light malt. Hazy yellow with streaming effervescence, thick white head. Tastes great and super refreshing, upfront a light sourness and a ton of carbonation, finishes with a green apple tartness and a hint of sweetness. Great mouthfeel, light bodied and highly carbonated. Rerfreshing and well balanced, if not highly complex. Great beer.
