750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy, light golden with a small, white head. Aroma of sourness, light malts and wheat, plus light and citrusy fruits. Flavor the same with a nice tartness. Average texture. A really good Berliner.

Pours a slightly-hazed yellow. Nose has some lactic acidity but also a bit of sulfur. Light acidity and easy drinking. Bit of wheat. Very nice other than sulfury nose.

Pours a light hazy yellow, with no head. Aroma of funk, lemons and wheat. Taste is slightly tart, funky. Light yet full of flavor. Really nice, not over the tops

Really sharp bright lemony berliner. Wheat is evident and a lactic tartness on the backend is complimented by citrus zest and cracker maltyness.

750 ml bottle acquired via trade. Been looking forward to this one for awhile. Pours a bright hazy yellow straw hue. Sunshine cornfield hues are a bit hazy, bright and pale with some champagne like glow. A frothy bright white head dies to a negligible ring with skant lacing. Aromas present big pleasing lactic acidity, bigger citric lemon tartness, some white grape and grapefruit juice. Some citrus rind, yogurty lemon, grainy rustic straw and cereal elements. Crisp, sour and yogurty with some cleaner light body, really nice lactic life. Potent and enjoyable, white peach and gentle sour green grape, kiwi. Lovely. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a bit slick and sour overall. Lemon rind, sour peaches, white grape and kiwi. Some straw, bready malt and yogurt cultures as we move on. Nice lactic zip keeps pushing, sustained sourness. Really nice flavors as it dries out a bit, shows some bready and straw malt as we hit the backend. The fruit presence is fairlly diverse, yogurty and fruity without just a blast of harsh lactic pop. This really works well. Lots of fruit complexity, sourness, without being overwhelming. Lotta green grape tartness, white peach, lemon, kiwi fruit and pretty tasty. Itís sour but not overblown, balanced in that regard. A bit slick as that yogurty feel sticks in the finish. Quite crushable, really a nice summery session worthy beer. Can just imagine drinking this out in the shade. Tasty stuff. Nose is solid, appearance a touch lacking, but overall the beer is just lovely in flavor, balance, and flow. Perhaps a touch undercarbonated but nice stuff.

750, just your perfect regular berliner. Tart and wheaty with a long lasting complexity

Straw color, cloudy. Smells like soured grain heaven: lemon citrus galore. Taste rocks my world with more of the same. So clean, so crushable. WANT!
