4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from trade. Thanks. Pours a hazy yellow color with a big foamy white head that has excellent retention. The aroma is tart with lemons and a trace of sour green apple. The taste is more mildly tart citrus with lemons, limes and most interestingly the foamy head has a semi-sweet meringue effect. This beer is quite literally to drink a lemon meringue pie. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and sour. Overall: Thanks to whoever sent me this, I’ve done so many trades in the past few months that I’ve lost track. Gonna have to start labeling the bottles.

Yellow body with a big white head. The aroma has apple, citrus, funk, and a bit of acidity. The flavor is similar, very nice and refreshing. A nice malt character comes through as well. Lots of carbonation and a dry, tart finish.

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.
