Bottle courtesy of Michael. Thank you! Aromas and flavors of wheat, citrus, and subtle stonefruit (apricot and peach). The Riesling grapes definitely come through, adding more fruit nuances then your typical Berliner. Mouthwatering and refreshing. Wonderful fuller body and balanced tartness. Fine, creamy, full carbonation. Great lingering finish of citrus and mild stonefruits. Glad I got to try this! Thank you!

Thanks Northropfrye for sharing this. Pours a hazy yellow with white head. Aromas are lemon, funk, maybe a touch of watermelon bubblegum. Nice sour flavors and a touch of lactose. Good stuff.

Bottle from Dak, thanks man! straw yellow pour, cloudy white head that leaves nice traces of lacing around the edges of my glass. Aroma - herbal, metallic, and lemon citrus, hope this tastes better than it smells. Taste - shizam this is really good, tastes nothing like the aroma which I found to be a bit off putting. Upfront, there is crisp carbonation, once it buckles some nice lemonade citrus comes through, very drinkable...yet another sessionable beer from these guys.

Faint funky aroma more vinous than most Berliner Weiss beers I've had and not as tart. Still quite nice. Thanks GV for this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottling date is smudged.
Appearance: The body is clear with a golden to amber hue. The head is short and dissipates quickly into a white coating that covers the entire top with a creamy ring.
Aroma: The aroma is mild but fruity and spritzy. Some carbonic acid is present with light sulfur, along side bright granny smith apples add a refreshing quality to this. The aroma might be light, but it’s a joy, slightly tart and hinting at something very refreshing.
Taste: Boy this is interesting. The intro is reminiscent of Perrier water with a fresh lemon, but a mild sweetness of cotton candy sugar underlies this by the mid-taste as granny smith apples overlie it. The finish hints at a little sulfur and a touch of sweetness, carbonic acid is present as well. The finish is abrupt and dry, but there’s a very soft lingering cotton candy and tart lemon.
Palate: Light and spritzy, very refreshing.
Overall: This is a very refreshing Berliner. I love the subtle flavors and the high carbonation. This drinks like a fine seltzer water in the best way possible. I would love to have a 6 pack of this on a hot day in the Summer.

Thanks to iNBe for this. This was excellent stuff. Just tart enough, not overwhelming. Very bubbly. A lot of flavor for the low strength. Serving: Bottle
