Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2014
From notes I apparently misplaced. Pours a very pale and hazy light straw color with a huge pure white head. Aroma is very sour and citrusy with banana and grapefruit mixed with a slight grain and malt presence. Taste is very tart up front. A lot of sour lemon and sweet grapefruit that blends perfectly with a natural grain flavor.

Ratman197 (10462) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, straw, lemon zest and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry lightly tart finish. Flavors of wheat, straw and light lemon zest with a crisp dry lightly tart finish.

drowland (6517) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2015
12oz bottle thanks to either cbfobes or rdixon77, late summer 2014, I think. Hazy golden pour with a nice off-white head, good lacing. Okay aroma, light lemon, lactic, grainy. Nice flavor, tart, almost sour, mild grain, bread, melds together well, nicely balanced. Tasty.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. A light vanilla woody nose. Sour, lemons, zesty, woody. Very light but good.

JaBier (5094) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Had a bunch of this between July and now (thanks Motortoddhead, for loading us up at Muckfest!), but I’m just now noticing it’s a separate entry from the old Unplugged version. Pours clear yellow with a huge white head. Aroma of funk, creamy wheat, tart fruit and sour lemon. Sour lemon flavor giving way to a creamy wheat finish. A true to style, perfectly balanced Berliner.

jcnielsen (2362) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from adnielsen. Thanks Aaron! Minimal aroma of tart lemon and bread. Cereal, tart, lemon, yogurt flavors. Not an overly powerful beer, but solid.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Aaron. Pours a very pale straw color with a large head. Aromas of wheat and sour lemons. Taste is tart and lightly sweet. Flavors of sour wheat, with some yogurt twang. Quenching. I dig this.

Crockett (1024) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Nose of barnyard, bret yeast, citrus, faint cheese. Gorgeous pale yellow cloudy pour with a big pillowy heavy lacy head. Very lemony... traces of salt (almost gose-like). Crisp and lively. First thoughts are Fish and Chips as a perfect pairing. Fresh dough. Clean. Wonderful and stylish.

jackl (5209) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle as an extra in a trade. Hazy gold with massive eggshell white head. Yogurt-covered bread. Lemon peel. A hint of bell pepper. Taste is similar. Light lemon, sour cream. Spritzy, lively on the palate. Light.

[ Bottle ][ ˝ of 35.5cl ][ Tasting ][ ][ Tulip ][ 11.25.14 ]
Transparent gold, huge puffy white head, dense lacing. Sweet green grape nose, skin but plenty of sugary flesh, light lacto drowned in sweetness, a little green. Faint paint thinner and greenness at front palate, doughy grains with light toast mid, cleaner lactic finish, still considerable sweetness, fizzy in the contrast and thin, sparkling minerality with the short finish leaving lightest grains.
