This is sour indeed. Pour likes Ike lemonade. Smells like bath water with a lemon thrown in. Tastes about the same.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the Iron Abbey - Horsham, PA. Sweaty, foot-like aroma, with butyric acid and lots of enterobacteria. Filthy. Flavors are coarsely sour, loaded horse manure and really rough lacto products. Insanely sour, to the point of undrinkability. Full of fermentation flaws. Rough stuff.

Sampled at GABF 2013. Light, refreshing Berliner with a nice sour bite. Tart citrus fruits and wheat malts round things out. Not too complex.

Bottle thanks to GT. Hazy light straw pour with average white head. Aromas of pickles, plastic, wheat, light lemon. The palate is tart with flavors of green apple, salt, faint wheat, somewhat harsh sour. Interesting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 bottle batch #14 bottled August 9 2013. Pours a very yellow color. Mildly hazy and light. Zero lacing or head. Sort of a musty lemonade aroma with earth undertones. Mouthfeel is light and crisp as it should be with plenty of carb. Taste is also like under sugared lemonade. Undertones of must chalk funk and lime. Not the best Berliner I've had but not bad at all. True to style and at $6 a bottle, well worth it. I'd buy again and I'd even age one for a year too.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from watson1977...thanks Kerry! - Pours hazy pale yellow with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head. Nose is cheesy yogurt, tart wheat, white vinegar, and a touch of lemon. Taste has more mineral quality to it, but itís still a bit cheesy, greek yogurt, with a sour lemon tartness on the finish. Pretty puckering, actually--way too much for my tastes when youíre expecting a mellow berliner tartness. So sour that it produces lots of saliva and isnít all that quenching, like when you drink a Squirt. Thin and well-carbonated, but not biting. Interesting, but the sourness is dialed up a little much for me, and the cheesiness is off-putting.
