3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… mgumby10’s & hopscotch’s WtFFfFDotF Throwdown … Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma puts forth modest notes of warm bread, clove, CornNuts and only a rumor of banana. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Light pale grain sweetness and mild lemon tartness. Crisp, tangy finish.

Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a mildly hazy light gold color, with a small white head. Smells of very acidic citrus fruit, with some noticeable wheat characters in there as well. Definitely smells like a Berliner Weisse. The flavor isnt overpowering sour, and let some wheat characters come through. Its tartness was left n the palate and in the aftertaste. i dont like really funky Berliner’s and this one wasnt overly funky, so I enjoyed it. Nice brew.

Thanks for BMAN! Finally I get to try this. 1st it’s on tap at the Stone Sour Fest. Then bottles at Stone. Missed out both times. Now it’s on the shelves. Woohoo. And it’s really good. Light yellow color. Wheaty. A cross between a Berliner Weisse and a gueze. Very easy to drink. Dry. Medium sourness. Very nice.
