pours a cloudy yellow with a lemon citrus aroma. Smells very bready and musty. Taste is surprisingly clean and refreshing. Very tart and citrus taste throughout. A nice summertime beer that invites itself to be quickly drank.

Hazy golden wheat color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is light, citrus, some faint sourness and wheat. Very nice so far. Flavor is sweet, tart and has some nice unmalted wheat flavor that also helps the body. Nice and light and has a nice light amount of sourness. Not acidic and easy to drink.

0.75l - Not much of a nose, funky yellow with thick white head. Sour palate, felt more like a cider than anythign else I can remember. I liked it.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2014 Had this beer 4-3-2010 to celebrate the birth of my second son, Logan. Pours a hazy yellow with a tall, fast fading, white bubbly head. Aroma has a tart note early but then a solid wheat presence comes through followed by a very strong bready nose to finish it off. Flavor starts off with a modest dry, tartness, followed up by some wheat and mild lemon citrus finishing with a very strong bready presence. Body is light with high carbonation that helps to lend a sharp dryness to the texture of the beer. Overall the flavor of the beer had a strong bready yeasty flavor and when combined with the tartness found in this brew, is more reminiscent of some apfelweins I have tasted. Sour was almost nonexistent which is surprising since most beers of the Berliner weisse styling are pretty sour. Overall a decent brew but stylistic really off.
2nd tasting - Tartness of this beer is very prevalent. Still a strong lemon and bready presence with notes of buttered popcorn (think of the Jelly Belly flavor). Much better on the second go around. Very refreshing with the high carbonation and strong tartness. I will definitely be picking this beer up again.

(bottle - 750 ml) Lightly hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly off-putting. Rather funky, but not in the good way. Flavor more than makes up for it. Huge tart blast at the beginning with a nice sour and earthy flavor. I love the tartness aspect. It’s more than enough to let you know what you’re drinking, but doesn’t completely take over the subtle wheat notes that are in the beer. Loved it.

750 mL bottle from Discount Liquors. Pours hazy light yellow with fizzy white head. Aroma is funk, tart, and citrus. Flavors are similar with very light body and crisp finish. Leaves a nice tart sourness in the aftertaste. It’s not as sweet as a lot of other sour beers, which I really like in this case. This is a really good version of a beer that I wish more craft brewers made.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine.
It pours a bright yellow color with a foamy white head. There are notes of honey and lemon in the nose. It’s very tart on the tongue with light bread notes, a touch of honey, and a good bit of lemon. Light body with high carbonation with a dry, clean finish. At 3.1% ABV, it is a great summer session ale and a pretty good take on the style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale and hazy. Thin head disappears very quickly (as per style). Wheaty aroma with actually a fair bit of pedio, maybe hints of apple and peach. Tart body. Lots of pedio - it just dominates this beer. Maybe a bit of apple, but on the whole not a pleasant drink and not to style.
