3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: toast with a slight nuttiness, plus the wood funk. A little subdued but nice.
T: nice sourness and funk, perhaps a little rhubarb, a bit of toasted malt on the finish (tobacco perhaps?)
M: good carbonation, dry finish
O: really nice fusion of a Berliner Weiss and a marzen, with an American spin with the funk.

Bottle. Pours a near clear light brown with a near white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains backed by light sour fruits and a hint of wheat. Flavor has nice light sour fruits with a touch of acid and earthy grains underlying.

Light bodied, caramelly, sourish, lemony, a bit fruity and footy; sourdough character.
A bit purposeless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of feet, earthy notes, and light graininess. Flavour is very strange, with notes of rye, dark crusty bread, and light spiciness. What a strange hybrid beast this is. Not like a Berliner at all, but a dark, earthy grainy wheat beer. Not too bad, but very strange.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Funky grains, toast, rye and burnt notes with a weird tartness. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Tart and toasty malts with some weirdness. Odd all around but quite tart and interesting.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from unknown via Dan S. Pours a medium brown-orange, little but of quickly dissipating head. Nose grapes, Brett, lacto, juicy, woody. Body lively yet slippery, finish slightly tart, some tannic qualities. An original idea and well done.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
What an interesting beer...pours a nice burnt sienna color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lost of nutty bread notes that mingle with a some well integrated roast, tart acidity and a lingering rustic grain. Hints of smoke, wet wood, caramel and apple skin. Great autumn berliner.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared thanks to Lukaduke! Pours hazy brown with medium head. Nose is earthy bready grain and some tart fruit spice and toasted wood. Taste is multi grain bread, wheat cereal grains, tart round nutty fruit, nucely balanced acidity, soft woody notes. Finish is tart balanced acidity over earthy whole wheat bread and nutty toasted grains with some nice fruity spice. Unique and tasty.
