3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve had this beer on draft a few times now. It’s a little different every time. Interesting.
The beer is a light pink color with a thin, off-white collar. Aromas of grassy funk, herbal tea, peach, peach skin, kombucha. Moderate tartness with stone fruit and a mild earthiness. Some floral notes with a hint of berries. The finish offers a light puckering sensation with a moderate acetic quality. Complex and enjoyable. The peach character was more prominent the fist time I had this and nearly absent on the second occasion. A fun beer to drink, and definitely worth a try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap at Max’s. Cloudy golden with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is watery lemon and maybe some touches of caramel, citrus and herb. Taste is middle-of-the-road: toast, caramel, some sharp citrus and a finish of Saltine cracker. Looked for some tea but never got it. Light-medium body is refreshing and crisp with medium-high carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours darker amber with an apricot hue as described, and a small beige ring as a head. Aroma is a bit light bringing the wheaty yeast forward and some light tartness. Flavor has the tart signature of a Berliner blended well with some tropical fruit and even suggestions of apricot. The ending is not too dry and not puckering at all.
